Stop selling USB and innovate wireless connection and wireless charging as one interactive module.
USB ports will stop working after a few years and the replacement not always easy to find/replaced.
Using USB as charging port is rather stupid idea (small cable cores led to limited current transfer and slow charging, easily broken contact plates).
