Why do my streaming sticks "eat" the USB Power Cable with Long-range Wireless Receivers?
I work off of 3 Streaming Stick + devices. I have issues where all of them have had their USB power cable/wireless receiver go bad. These things are valued @ $20, and I'm getting tired of replacing them. Anyone else have this issue? If this continues, I'm going to find new streaming devices. Thanks!

Since this is incorporated in the power cord I wonder if irregularities in the power running through it (surges, spikes, etc.) could be the source of your troubles. My Streaming Stick+ is powered through a computer grade surge protector, same as the tv, and in the year+ I've had it I've never had a problem with the wifi receiver.
