Anybody else have an issue with your modern controller charging port being too loose?

Recommended Posts

I use the VCS alot in Windows and it never fails I'll be playing and the cable will fall out of the port losing connection until I out it back in.

I have not had this issue but I have heard of it happening at least once.  Double check that you are pushing it in all the way.  The plastic around the connector on the cable is grooved in the middle on one side.  It matches a key ridge on the controller housing, and if not inserted securely it will fall out.  If you are sure this is not the case then I would contact Atari customer service and make a service ticket.

I have not. Those micro USB inputs are notorious for wearing out, though, particularly the little metal bits that keep it in place.

Exactly...  I had two tablets, with bent micro USB ports, that went dead on me because I couldn't recharge them.

 

And it's also getting so bad for my current phone I ended up buying a USB-C to microUSB adapter so I can use a USB-C charge cable which doesn't wear the port out.
