I hate the game of trying to put a reader back on charge ,in a dark room, with all the "which way up does it go " nonsense

I used to try colouring one side of the micro usb plugs to help, but there is no consistency in which way up the sockets get added to devices
Yes, you also have to be careful of USB-C chargers. They can also damage your equipment. So having a USB-C port is really a bad idea especially when micro-USB works perfectly well.

So please don't go praising USB-C. It's rubbish.
