When I got my first USB device (A Schock Flip Phone) I just returned the whole mess - I didn't want to have another device and charger when I've a dozen or so of the microUSB things that are everywhere.

Further reading and I discover that the base-turds are changing over, everywhere, and all the old chargers will require adapters.

So I went and bought back the Schock Flip Phone and go a ten-pack of really cheap adapater (micro USB to USB C) to sprinkle about my world.

The life-changing event suffered by Chris goes a long way in explaining why it sometimes doesn't seem to work. At least the microUSB only goes in one way - depending, of course, on how angry you are.
