Where's the Nexus 7 2016?

My ancient Nexus 7 tablet won't charge. I think the problem is in the port itself. YouTube surely has a lot of foolish videos on how to fix everything, right? Everybody seems to think they're a star.

This is the most-used device I've ever owned. It is years old but still meets my everyday demands extremely well. As a Nexus device it always gets software upgrades before other Android devices. I've been running Marshmallow for a really long time.

This tablet has been treated roughly and proudly displays chipped corners. I know that its days are numbered but Google hasn't sold a similarly-sized Nexus device since 2013. It has a bit of a cool reputation and there's always ongoing talk of a possible refresh. All I can say is, "Please!"

Until then, rather than prying it apart to get inside, I think I'll buy a $12 inductive QI charger. Okay Amazon, what have you got for me?
