As far as the construction of the microUSB port on the KF, itself, I think it's simply cheap manufacturing. I noticed a slight bit of play in the connection when I first received my KF. As a result I've been extremely careful about attaching the charge cable. (No wiggling, no forcing). It has remained completely functional for three months with no change.
My experience (and subsequent handling) is exactly the same. I did try another cable of better quality that I had from another device and the fit was tight -- no play. I am wondering if it is the cable production that is inferior.
