Lipster, I like that short 90 degree USB cable. Will keep a look out for one.

Thanks but I need a Samsung S8 compatible one.

Here you find one, I also checked the angle of the USB A (console plugin), it’s turning the cable to the right so it fits perfectly https://www.amazon.co.uk/UGREEN-Degree ... 182&sr=8-4

I've found that using right-angled USB A plugs mean that you may not need to use the special hook that Lipster found (of course, your mileage may vary, depending on the size of the right angle, which direction it hangs the cable out etc. :-)

Where the charging pad is there's a little clip to hold your USB cable out of the way.
As far as I know, all XC40’s have that little clip, not just the ones with a charging pad. And by the way, a little lower you’ll find a (somewhat hidden) bank card holder.

There is a USB cable clip in the front next to the USB :D

Unfortunately my short, curly lead doesn't fit into the clip. What were Volvo thinking, could they not design a better clip that would accommodate straight and curly.
I may have to take it in for service and see what the dealer says.

That's the clip we both are talking about indeed.

Perhaps Volvo were thinking that people with a curly lead can very easily partly uncurl the lead so that the clip accomodates it.
However, those people may indeed prefer to take it in for service and see what the dealer says.

Partly uncurl a curly lead? That way lies madness.

Maybe the service department has a "curly lead uncurling device" they could use, {or mebbe an iron?).
