I have a wobbly USB cable that breaks/makes connection.

I thought USB was supposed to be designed to prevent this?

I mean actual USB not micro-tiny-can-be-disturbed-by-a-fly-landing-on-it-USB

@joeyh I think mostly it's designed to minimize the connectors' cost; that's why it went with connectors you can print on a circuit board. BNC connectors and crimp-on spade lugs are designed to prevent wobbly breaking-and-making connections. USB is a study in compromises (and, occasionally, stupidity.)
