I want to know if ebay cheap 1 count usb charge port. Is okay to buy 4 This tablet. It is $3 or less & is all I need, I think. Just broke my tablet way worse on sloppy job of screen replacement , but it look ok. You see lint hair, etc underneath when screen off at an angle close uo is all & ruined power button area ceazy glue, etc mess I have to press down hard with something & now on top of all, the charger chord at same time plys charge lose all of a sudden so it isnt really charging or a hassle & if it is it turns off while playing on a game. etc. Now it is not even turning on. Just tries, but doesn't. At least b4 it was. I took it apart to see the charge port . Good thing its not a cable type & can easily replace for cheaoer then one too. I has wrong battery reading or diff on screen off then on have 2opush down, but charge port lose. I don’t know if replacing will fix it or it has other issue when I messed up the power button. I need 2 try the port till I can buy other tablet. If I had not broke it been okay. Lesson learned
