Improve a USB Dongles Robustness With Sugru

Introduction: Improve a USB Dongles Robustness With Sugru

With the constant moving around of mobile electronics and laptops, it is very easy to wear out a USB dongle when you're on the go. Things slip and drop, and in my case right on my USB dongle for my Fitbit One! It got smashed up pretty good, but thanks to sugru you can salvage your devices and make them stronger for next time. Simply rearrange the dongle back into its original configuration ( use some super glue if necessary) and then mold the sugru around it and wait for the sugru to cure (see image). After 12 hours or so, your dongle will be back and stronger than ever!
