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 use this for micro-usb cable testing. Plug a loop-back USB-A socket on the far end, and ring out with a DVOM on these solder pads. Good&short cables are only +0.2ohm on the power loop, poor cables can be +1. Also can check data connectivity and ID ohms.
I’d like to have one of these for the Apple Lightening, even though some pins are though actives.
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.
