I’ve managed to damage a micro USB cable. The damage is in the middle of the cable, so the ends work fine. The cable is used to power a Furbo (pet webcam with treat dispenser). Despite the end being standard microUSB, the plastic just before the end is a strange shape, so replacing it with a normal micro USB hasn’t worked.
Would there be any issues with cutting out the damaged bit and soldering the cable back together? As far as I can see the cable is used for power only. No data transfer (that’s all wifi).
I can’t see any issues , but just wanted to check as I haven’t seen issues before with things and that hasn’t always been smart.
