Where can I buy additional slim USB cables for Armor? Most standard cables dont fit, they are too thick. And I need at least one additiona cable for car charger.

For the moment I need only one USB cable but this thread is an occasion to mention the problem of the Armor's USB port which can not be used except with the slim cable sold with the Armor.

In my case it is not a cable what I am looking for but a USB key (or adaptator) for the Armor's port.

Suggestion for Ulefone: to give us a USB adaptator for the Armor, not just a cable.

Having a lot of devices, I managed to find 3 more usb cables, but it was hard.
Maybe removing (carefully) the extra plastic can do the trick?

The adaptator for the jack port is also not a good option, I would have preferred no jack at all (like iphone) .
I use bluetooth.

In addition to ARMOR comes with data lines, xiaomi redmi note data lines can also be used, including mi max.

That's what I plan to do when orange USB cable I bought for my daughter come and they don't fit - file them a little bit... But I'd like to be able to buy a fitting cable readymade.

Alas they don't send those to Poland.
But luckily these fit: https://is.gd/gRWiu1

Check EBay etc and search for USB cable IP 68, you'll find a lot of standardized stuff, those cables aren't custom for the Armor, a lot of devices in enviroments demanding IP 68 protection use these.

I don't think any cable marked IP 68 will work.

I'm quite sure this one https://is.gd/ZlsYql won't. Armor needs rounded corners on plug's body, just look closer at the socket...

Umm, or maybe it will, the plug seems to be longer than usual.

Yeah, that cable is exactly what you need. The USB cable fullfiling IP 68 classification has that longer micro-USB connector that was delivered with the Armor. The connector of the Armor is 8 mm long, IP 68 USB's connectors are made in both 8 mm and 10 mm lenght, both can be used with the Armor. If you are careful and don't unduly mechanically stress the connector, then you can use an IP 68 rated USB connector with a phone designed for an ordinary micro USB connector.
