So, why did I even have to do this?
I had an old USB cable that was not in a great shape. And one end was a USB C jack. I knew that such a jack would be tremendously useful when it comes to my hobbyist projects. Hence, I made one.
This is how you can make one too.
- USB C-Male jack [This or this (note that you have to self-solder. I do not recommend)
- 24 Guage wire- This
- Soldering station+flux+lead – Read more here.
- Helping Hand (not compulsory though!)
So, let's start.
Solder the wire based on what color arrangement you want them to be in. I chose red for +ve, black for -ve, green for data +ve and yellow for data -ve.
You may choose the same or put all reds if you want. It's your cable. Not mine!
Once you solder them you are done.
(Disclaimer: This was a project originally intended to be for BMC supporters only. Since, it was irresistible, they allowed me to make it public and share it here also.)
The irony is that I do not recommend that you do this unless needed! Anyways, I hope that you enjoyed reading this post, feel free to support me by buying me a coffee.
