As far as I know, micro usb is five connections.   De-solder and extend the five wires?  If there's any tips you can think of, I'd love to hear.

 

I'm not going to try this right away, but when a customers ultimatum is having the usb elsewhere or no sale, I may try it then. :crazy:

I would probably massacre a USB micro B extension rather than trying to run wires (appropriately twisted and shielded) individually to a connector. 

If it was me

Yeah.  Just knowing that it's important to have those wires properly shielded is good knowledge for me.   One of these might help on the other end.

Nailed it John. This was my thinking. A section of preassembled and properly shielded power and data cable is invaluable when compared to building your own. This was originally my question (thanks David) as I was always a little confused by limiting the only transition input jack in the whole setup slaved to one place. I truly believe that remote mounting it, or at least the option to would open up quite a few great options. I just got registered and will start chimming in more and more as we go along ;)

Are the solder landings supporting the preinstalled micro-B female top mount or through mount? I'm assuming top mount, but had a hard time being certain when just comparing the different pictures I've seen.
