Yeah, USB can be confusing; to avoid decision fatigue I'd suggest one

- fa-plug (for plug-able) https://fontawesome.com/v4/icon/plug

- fa-chain-broken (not used anywhere, and it sorta looks like it would
  fit but def. more abstract)

While true and definitively wanted in the longer run, I think this might
be out of scope for this series, to avoid blowing the yak-shaving up too
