**CAUTION–word of warning**JCB Toughphone–Pro-Smart & Sitemaster charging cables

Update 30/11: YOU CAN BUY A REPLACEMENT USB CABLE, SUITABLE HERE

Update 14/02/2013: We do too now have a vehicle charger available HERE.

A little word of warning surrounding the JCB Toughphone including the Pro-Smart & Sitemaster.  There is no problem, but something you need to be aware of.

connectionIf you have or are considering the JCB Toughphones (there are many reasons to do so) you need to be aware that a standard microUSB cable that you might buy online or in a shop may not (some will) work with the JCB Toughphone.

The reason being the micro USB port is recessed and a normal USB cable is not designed to reach the recessed connection.  The extra protection around the phone prevents a normal micro USB cable making contact with the port.

 

The images below show the connection and how the provided micro USB cable in the box of the JCB Toughphones is slightly different.

Official JCB Toughphone accessories are expected to be available soon and will of course work.

No reason to be put off, but just thought we would let you know!
