I want to solder type c connector to latest evolv charger bypassing stock micro usb (lostvape epetite mod), and I found 4 pins under micro usb connector. If this pins are mirrored microusb connector pins (there is NO datasheat for charger)?

@georgii_ your easiest option is to go with what @retird posted.

The other option would be to use something along the lines of this : https://www.ebay.com/itm/DIY-24pin-USB-Type-C-Male-Female-Plug-Socket-Connector-SMT-Type-w-PCB-1-Set-/311630199174   

You would have to tap into the USB +5v, GND, Data + and Data - traces on the charger PCB. Lost Vape rolled their own 2 amp charging board, they didn't use the Evolv version. You would also have to make room for the USB C breakout board and widen the USB socket hole for the larger C socket. A lot of work for little to no gain, IMO. Why do you want a USB C connector instead of the micro USB?
