Can say I have used gel super glue to fully reinforce each port on my ergo. No problems yet. Gel super glue (as opposed to liquid so there's less chance of it running into the port and blocking it) and epoxy are the best bets imo. People should avoid solder for this type of thing. Glue/epoxy are non-conductive and good reinforcements when they dry. If you use gel glue you can apply it liberally as it won't drip and stay exactly where you placed it.
But about the cable, the cables you get with the ergo are very thick and have a large amount of strain. What is the softest, THINNEST usb 3.0 cable people have found on the net so we can all order it for the least amount of strain on the ergo's usb slot. THINNEST/cloth is most important feature here so that there is very little resistance on the cable. I have only found thick clothed usb cables, anyone know of a thin, pliable type cable?

I ordered some of these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/141369572555 I hope they are not so cheap as to be causing their own problems but they were the thinnest looking ones I found. I don't have my kit yet to test how they work.

Going with a longer cable than is included will also help. There's 2 that are currently being recommended by the team at Input Club. FRiEQ Cables available from Amazon for around $10(US) in 1 or 2 meter lengths: http://amzn.com/B00WE2C4OW OR Fairly thin cables from Monoprice for about $5: http://www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=103&cp_id=10303&cs_id=1030310&p_id=11168&seq=1&format=2

I think the thinnest cables you'll find are retractable cables. http://amzn.com/B00JTDIJIY
You could remove the plastic casing and use the cable as a regular 27.5" cable. I may even splice mine to make it ~12" long.

This one looks promising too hopefully it's not too cheap to stop working by itself. I bought one, will report back.

The FriEQ cables look promising - got a set. Monoprice ones are still too thick, I think weehooherod's recommendation is the thinnest possible type of usb 3.0.

Does this cable http://amzn.com/B00JTDIJIY work for the interconnect?
