    I'd like to see the "same" thing, but with a female USB B jack instead of A. Those seem to be harder to find (although I've found some) and are very useful when you put things into enclosures.

      I'd like to see a USB B Jack as well.
      FWIW; a post like that deserves a "where you found them". Thanks!

    USB needs 5 connectors. Missing the shield should. It should be connected to the frame of the box/machine

    How much power would I be able to draw through these wires? I looked at the datasheet and it dosn't appear to say how much the the 5v and GND wires are rated for. Im looking for something I could draw an amp through

    What is the best option for connecting the header into a connector? Do you sell it here? I ordered this and a set of breakaway headers only to find that the connector end fits very loosely onto them, if at all.... This is a great product by the way - very happy with the quality.

    Nice. Much better than those 12-18" cables that come with most motherboards!
