SMK just made micro-USB ports a lot stronger

An anonymous reader writes "If a gadget chips with a micro-USB port I see it as a plus due to the fact it isn't proprietary, meaning I can easily and cheaply buy replacement cables. But the micro-USB ports aren't the strongest connectors in the world, so if the gadget is expensive (a smartphone) and you accidentally bust the port, you're in trouble. And that's easily done. Japanese manufacturer SMK may have fixed the problem though, with a new, double-strong connector design. They started producing them on Friday, and at an output of 500,000 a month, hopefully they'll be shipping with most new gadgets before long."
