One advantage of micro usb: Magnetic connnector

One part I really like about the Core is the Micro usb connector, This allows me to attach a magnetic USB cable and base.
I wish magnetic cables were made for Mini usb. (someone do it quick)
The magnetic function allows me to easily remove the cable without wearing down the internal micro usb.
I am living the core so far and I hope you all do to.
Happy clacking,

what im am using so i can still u my styleish mimic cable
Yah, I have something similar to that, allows me to use my nice cables.
This magnetic cable includes a USB mini-b tip if you get the complete set.
Their cables are too short though ;-;
Yep, got a Pok3r rgb just a week ago. First thing I was searching after I get it, was a mini usb magnetic connector... nothing like it on the entire planet.
I think this isn't a problem to resolder mini USB port on any keyboard.
It's better not having to do that. But I think magnetic usb is really nice, sorta like mag safe.
I can't lie. A lot of the reason I ordered this board was because of your post here. I'm typing on it now. There is going to be a huge learning curve but I think I can manage. And I think it's going to be worth it. Also first time with clears. Love them so far!

https://www.amazon.com/Smart-Cool-Magnetic-Charging-Transfer/dp/B01MZZ1CFC This is the one I recomend.

If you would like to use an existing micro usb cable, https://www.amazon.com/Hi-Pro-Magnetic-Adapter-Charger-Android/dp/B01M2C5KHC/ref=pd_sim_107_6?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=DRQANAG6B5E5VEJ2RPC4

These are fantastic thanks!
As a side note, the lack of magnetic Mini-B adapters can be circumvented by using a Mini-B to Micro-B adapter...

If those exist. I can't find any.

You lucky son of a...

I'm stuck with a FC750R and a V60 Mini that's coming this April. Both have Mini-B; I'm out in the cold.

I shouldn't have bought salt in Ishigaki when I went there this February. *sigh*
Have you had a look at the Z70? I think that's the only appropriate board atm with a usb-c connection. Something you may want to consider when it's next available.
My ANNE PRO uses micro i think, its the same port im using to charge my android phone. But tbh I wouldnt mind seeing a skip in Micro/Mini and jump straight to USB Type-C. Everything is going there now.

I'm surprised so many of the keyboards here still use mini given the stated problems with that connector. I would love to see projects like Planck go into that direction.
But Type-C is useless on keyboards and it's expensive than mini/micro USB.
Seriously, what brands out there do people have experience with. I would like to find one where I can swap out mini and micro tips.
Sadly I have not seen mini usb tips.
This is good: https://www.amazon.com/iKNOWTECH-Magnetic-Braided-Charger-Indicator/dp/B01MA6JT6K/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1486314910&sr=8-7&keywords=magnetic+usb

This is also good because you can use your own micro usb cable. https://www.amazon.com/Magnetic-Adapter-ZIYUO-Charger-Android/dp/B01MFBHXI5/ref=sr_1_26?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1486315019&sr=1-26&keywords=magnetic+micro+usb+cable

I currently us this, but I don't know when it will go back in stock.
OMG, I love this, how can I join this cult and what flavor of kool-aid is required!
