Thanks for the information JimMoore. I’ve personally used several dozen of the microUSB cables from that same shipment and haven’t had an issue with any of them, but we’ll make a note of it for future orders. I checked out the board that JohnSmutny had the issue with and it was indeed a bad mechanical contact inside the slide switch that caused the intermittent problem, but only on the pole that controls power to the FTDI circuitry.
