MicroUSB port broke off. Need replacement board.
« on: January 28, 2017, 02:15:57 PM »
Anyone have a link for a replacement control board? The MicroUSB port broke off.

Do you guys think I should go for the Banggod/Gearbest ones or should I get a genuine arduino?

Depending on what board you have now, you might just need to replace the nano

Thanks for the quick response guys.

I'm kinda concerned about this happening again. I'm not handy with solder though and I've heard that chinese soldering tends to be pretty bad, that's how the current one broke. Maybe I could reinforce it with some epoxy?

I think you were just unlucky, but if you're worried just get a 5 pack (with or without cables):
http://www.banggood.com/5Pcs-ATmega328P-Arduino-Compatible-Nano-V3-Improved-Version-No-Cable-p-971293.html
http://www.banggood.com/5Pcs-ATmega328P-Arduino-Compatible-Nano-V3-Improved-Version-With-USB-p-951782.html

If you're in the US and want 1 quicker, select the US warehouse option or try ebay but make sure it's a US seller:

You can usually find a good deal on alibaba, but i would likely solder on a new usb port.
