So to clarify my earlier post, the exposed, metal portion of the Eve supplied USB cable is slightly shorter (approx. 0.3mm) than other cables I’ve looked at (Samsung & GoPro to name a couple). In addition, the back bevel of the V case prevents full insertion of the cable by another 1.3mm. The result is that if there is a gap (as little as 0.3mm) between the plastic shoulder of the Eve USB plug and the side of the V case, then the connection fails. Only if Eve cable is pushed in far enough to be pushed out of parallel to the receptacle (away from the plane of the screen), can a reliable connection be made. The better solution is to select cables that do have a longer plugs. I am also now using an SIIG, USB-C Power Meter, to monitor real time voltage and current being drawn by the V (and it has a longer plug too).
One of the early reviewers commented on the beveled case surrounding the USB ports, and it’s potential to prevent adequate cable contact. With my three Vs, this has proven to be the case. Moreover, this explains why Vs have not been charging, regardless whether they are powered off, powered up, or sleeping/hibernating.
