Due to hardware complexities, the size of 4th Generation (4G)/Long Term Evolution (LTE) Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices is larger and heavier than typical USB devices. The size of such 4G/LTE USB devices introduces a risk of not maintaining a solid electrical/mechanical connection during static and/or shock/vibrating conditions or of being easily damaged through typical product handling. Presented herein are techniques involving a magnetic holder that provides for the ability to solve these issues in a cost-effective manner. The techniques can be extended to support any USB and/or other interconnect plug-in devices.
