So I have an issue which just occurred not long ago. I have an Xbox one wireless controller given to me by a friend and it worked fine however I think I pulled my only working cable out too hard and now the controller will not work. I plug it in and if I cram the micro-usb cable it might vibrate the controller but nothing else happens. I don’t really want to order a working cable and risk it and I have 50 micro usb cables while none of them work. I’m planning on buying a Bluetooth adapter and wirelessly using the controller and just replacing the batteries every time it runs out but is it worth it and is it possible to actually fix the port? Thanks

If your actual question here is "Can the usb port be fixed?", yes most things can be fixed. Next question is "how", that is what you really need to ask, that depends on how good you are with electronics, can you open the controller, maybe buy a new connector and solder it on? If yes, then give it a shot. Unless you actually have 50 cables now, buying a second one to try before you replace the controller is worth it, and many people have a dozen charging cables lying around, your phone(s) or parents phones or friends phones all come with cables and from what I see the controller just uses a normal USB connection.
