    I know it's late but, i'd bet it was intentional for the short wire so it will act as a breakaway from a usb extension if someone or thing were to trip on the wire. the usb extension will come unplugged instead of the wire assemble being ripped out. or even breaking off in the port. usb extensions are real cheap, 5 foot ones are $1 at a dollar tree.

    But you removed the strain relief! Did this turn out to be a durable solution?
