I am on my way to making a portable R-Pi and have run into a placement issue; I want the SD card slot to be directly accessible to the outside of the case, but the Micro usb cable is in the way. I'll include a diagram, as I'm bad at explaining things.
The solution could be to "destroy" the plug on the cable and bend the wires around, as they will be more flexible? I have a rule though: NO SOLDERING ANYTHING TO THE PI! I want the pi to be removable from this setup, so I need to find a way of making the plug shorter. It should protrude 5mm MAX from the pi. That, or somebody send me a link to a SD card extension cable/tutorial for one?
I think I may just be able to cut the plug and cable apart and bend some wires, but I need an expert's opinion, or at least somebody who is a bit more cable savvy than me. Pictures of other people doing this are greatly appreciated.
Great thanks for any help in advance,
