I usually have to replace at least one of my USB charging cables every year. Usually this is because of a loose contact (german: WACKELKONTAKT!) near the connectors. This is due to normal wear and tear.
Now I saw this gif on reddit. Crikey, there are USB cables which you just can “reconnect” and continue using? That is an awesome idea!
I did a quick quack and found they are from the GARAS brand. I am now looking to find a supplier which is not amazon and then buy one to see if my Fairphone 2 allows me to work with it.
I wish there were in-ear headphones like this (wink wink Fairphone Headphones with proprietary cable connectors)!
