Description

With this USB 2.0 OTG cable you can plug USB devices that have a standard USB Type A connector into your phone or tablet with a USB Micro B port.

The cable is passive and only converts the connector type. Because of this there shouldn’t be any signal interference, degradation, or timing issues associated with active cables and the USB signal is unaffected. Three cables are packed into one bag for your convenience.

This cable is also a great companion for the Raspberry Pi Zero.
