    I was wondering if others have experienced the USB-c connector cable from the charger loosening up. I recall when I first got the MBP that it was stiff and hard and would stay in the connector even if some moderate tugging.

    However, I have started to notice recently that it has loosened up to the point where a gently tug will snap it out. At times I have even noticed the connector slightly out of the port, which resulted in having to push it back in.

    This has been happening now for a few days and I was just wondering if others have experienced the same.

    Nice! :thumbsup:

    But seriously, did you try it in the other USB-C slots for comparison? I also have a rMacBook 12" that uses the USB-C exclusively, only one port, for over a year with no noticeable loosening.

    Yes, I have, but now that you mention it, it makes me think it is the actual USB cable and not the slots that are loosening. In any event, that is what I have observed.
