Soldering on a new USB connector?

Postby athous80 » Tue Dec 11, 2018 1:33 am

I hate that the USB comes out the side. I disassembled the unit and saw on the back there are potentially some solder points I could possible solder on a different USB cable to so that the connection comes straight out the back. Does anyone know what the pinout on the back is for those for adding an additional connector?

I will see if i we can get some info from the manufacturer but im assuming it would be the regular usb pin layout that goes from the front if you see the solder points behind.
Can you post a screen just in case of what you are looking at for better aid?

the pins break out from the main connector to the top (where it says USB_con. And to the bottom where I assume its the power. Was hoping to avoid having to hand solder a new micro usb connector.

This is what i got from the manufacturer, you could try using those pins.

Needless to say it voids warranty and try at your own risk.
