GoPro 7 Mic Adapter - Short?

Hello,
Have updated firmware, installed Rode Micro and adapter. Getting a crackling sound only when flexing cord on $50 adapter. Camera heats up quickly. Unplug external mic adapter and sound records fine. Zero sound records on Rode unless I bend adapter, then it’s iffy. Does this sound like an adapter maybe being bad right out of box? Also noted that the 3.5mm plug is not a snap fit in the adapter, not clicking like most plugs?

Re: GoPro 7 Mic Adapter - Short?

Rode micro I own as well, it takes  a good force to snap in.  If you're bending and soundissues call gopro please get a new one or return where gotten from, that is not quite normal, if asked.
