I don’t think so. The longer USB just means that you won’t have to take the unit in and out to charge, so less of a chance of knocking the power button out. It’s still hard to hit the power button, but the plug of the USB cable works makeshift to turn the unit on and off.
I was out of town for two weeks so a nice Dekunu black bag was waiting for me at the office. I like the new design. Looks like that part of the case is great now. Had a tiny bit of an issue replacing the case, main board wouldn’t align properly. So I put the screen/board/battery into top part, and covered with a bottom, instead other way around. Holds well.
