    Lightbulb usb dongle fixy

    As most of the users who tried the usb dongle I found that it sits pretty loose in the socket, and I can see how easily it can snap the charger pins, on the other hand, it's really useful accessory to have......
    So....
    I took a piece of metal (from a cover of a pci slot I had laying around) bent it carefully to fit the backside of the prime. Covered the whole thing in hot glue, to prevent damage to the delicate metal and ductaped the metal to the dongle. The result is pretty good, the dongle sits firmly in the socket, no wobbly movement (the backside is restricted by the metal, the front side restricted by the thickness of the dongle) although it's not pretty it gets the work done, I can connect everything to it without the fear of snapping the charging pins

    And yes, whoever engineered the dongle should be fired!! I can't understand how Asus let this thing pass the prototype stage....

    After watching the box again it seems it fits both 101 and 201, it's asus official but it does not give specific model.. I bought it here:

    The title says "TF101 SL101 TF201" but the rest of the ad says...

    For phone models:

    ASUS

    Eee Pad Transformer TF101
    Eee Pad Transformer TF101G

    That may explain the sloppy fitment.
