Will this fit the Massdrop alt keyboard? Wasted my money on the last cable because the USB c was incomparable with the USB c on the keyboard.
I had the same problem, but it wouldn't fit in my phone either.
I am really gutted about the whole thing. Its a beautiful cable and I paid for all the extras, waited for ages until it shipped, just to unpack it to find it doesn't fit. Massdrop offered me the refund but it's just not worth my time and the hassle to send it back from half way around the world. I wish someone would have made a list of the comparable keyboards on the drop.
I am pretty sure type c is type c is type c. So it should have fit into your keyboard, same with my phone. I have one the does fit, but doesnt actually power the board. Which I think is a defect as well. But that sucks about shipping it back. Can certainly be a pain if you live in a different country, and then the time it would take.
Well I just tried to use mine on the New Poker II and it dosent fit the USB C so I also wasted 37 bucks
These comments from various users are really off-putting for people considering getting these cables.
Beautiful cables that either doesn't fit or doesn't work are not even worth thinking about.
But how can they not fit if usb c is usb c is usb c which i'm sure there's only one type of usb c right?
You are correct. I am not too sure if the female end was just slightly too small (the actual hole), or if its housing is slight to thick.
I was able to use it with one keyboard whose USB C housing wasnt very snug, the cable fit in fine. However, still trying to get it into my phone, for example, requires too much force, and makes my uncomfortable.
And I dont just mean hold your phone snug, and push slightly harder. I mean bracing your phone, and pushing it, while pushing the cable still didnt get the cable in.
Well for me, to have to use that kind of force is not acceptable.
Either the female orifice is too tight or the male plug is too thick.
None too pleasant for everyone involved.
You tell me? I would have thought that as well. It's not acceptable, plus, no one from either the Massdrop end or the makers end bother to answer any questions on this and it has gone on for way too long.
