Description: This simple board breaks out a micro-B USB connector’s VCC, GND, ID, D- and D+ pins to a 0.1" pitch header. If you want to add the popular micro-B USB to your project, but don’t want to put up with soldering the tiny connector, this is the board for you.
Dimensions: 0.8 x 0.45" (20.3 x 11.4mm)

I’ve used for modification of a flysky TH9X station with firmware er9x . I have simplified the connections to the fullest. The product is indicated for the project
I use this to give myself quick 5v power to my breadboard, using a wall wart adapter and a cable. The breakout board has a small footprint. With just plug it in and there is my power. If you use standard 0.1" pin headers, you might want to place a small pad of something nonconductive like cardboard under the microB connector area, so that the board will not wiggle or move when you connect and disconnect a cable. Something to thicken the board a bit in that area and give me a sense that the board is stable and won’t somehow come undone. I am sure the board will become even more convenient when I want to work with USB signals, but for now all I care about are the VCC and GND (power) connections. I will order a few more of these very handy boards.
