TE USB Cable Question


#1

Just have a quick question. My USB cord on my TE frayed in a spot and after taking a look it doesn’t seem that anything actually cut it and that it is just wear and tear on the outer layer and on the copper braiding. I just wrapped it up with electrical tape for now and so far it seems like everything is working the way it should.

My question is this: Is the electrical tape a good enough substitute for the copper braiding?

Electrical tape will prevent things from getting into it and potentially harming it just fine. I would suggest putting some heat shrink over it too, electrical tape will start to peel up
