    Very useful information…Ty!!!

  3. What about the tips of the cords? They rust, burn, etc

    Seems to me that in the bending rig, the cord could be powering a load so that the exact time of failure could be logged.

    • That adds a different layer of complexity because there’s too many types of cords that push various levels of power. Not to mention they’re also super expensive

    Has there been a test on which type of connector last longer. Tested by connecting to device to be charged. Apple don’t last more then a couple months for us, however the type “C” seems to last well over a year. How about you people conducting that test?
