[Q] Micro USB-B Plug: LATCH HEAD LENGTH
On a standard USB data/charger USB A - Micro USB 'B' cable that comes with a Nexus 7 (for example) the 'Latch Head' metal connector that sticks out from the molded plastic boot is 5mm long.
I checked the specification on line and they should be 5.4mm minimum
I found when charging with these Micro USB B cables they don't fit tightly/properly, especially with a Nexus 7 as the molded USB head touches the Nexus case. The same is true when using a case on a mobile phone.
But, I have one cable where the Latch Head is 7mm long and it fits everything
so much better.
When inserted you can see a little bit of the metal connector of the Micro B in between the phone and molded shoulder of the cable.
Has anyone else noticed this?
And does anyone know where to buy these? I have tried a lot of Google searches and no-one seems to be aware of these cables.
I want to replace all of my USB data/charging cables with the ones with a 7mm Latch Head.
I will try and post a picture and dimensions of my 7mm cable as soon as possible.
If anyone has any info or ideas that would be great!
