Description: USB 2.0 type A to micro USB 5-pin. This is a new, smaller connector for USB devices. Micro USB connectors are about half the height of mini USB. Micro USB is found on newer hand held devices like cell phones and portable media devices. Works great with the Google Nexus One. Cable color and shape may vary slightly from image as our stock rotates.

Greetings Bought 4 of these cables, two have failed within a week of going into service. Both had issues with the micro b end. One went intermittent, no sign visible damage, But seemed loose when mated and had lots of wiggle. The other physically broke loose internally but did not come out of the connector backshell. One cable used on an Asus T-100 transformer book. The next on a galaxy s4. No I don’t try to abuse them and yes I’m a sixty something yo klutz. But I typically get a couple of years out of a cable that is used daily. My plan is to lop off the affecting appendage and replace it with new end. Going to try to do more thorough research on the replacement part.
It is workin fine.
I used to buy my USB microB cables from Amazon.com when I had free shipping with Amazon Prime but now that I don’t, I order these and I think they are comparable in quality and I’ve never had an issue with them breaking or not fitting the Arduino Leonardo, which is what I typically use them for. Great price for a great product, highly recommend.
The cable connected my laptop to my Arduino Leonardo and never missed a bit. Program transfer first time I tried it.
