Reversible USB A to C Cable - 0.8m

USB-C is fantastic. What makes this cable even better is that one of the features we love so much about USB-C has been replicated to the USB-A 2.0 plug! These cables have minor, yet genius modifications that allow them to be plugged into their ports regardless of orientation. No longer will you fight the USB "super position" where both orientations of your plug seem incorrect. A simple solution to a problem that nearly everyone has faced.

Until we have converted all our hubs, chargers, and ports over to USB-C this is the cable you're going to need for basic USB 2.0 connections. This cable is much thinner and flexible than its 3.1 counterpart and is perfect for USB to serial applications as well as for direct connection to basic microcontrollers.

Supporting USB 2.0 speeds and charging up to 2A, this 0.8 meter cable is perfect for embedded enthusiast that need the flexibility of a thinner cable and the wonderful feel of a reversible USB-C & USB-A connection. The 0.8m/~2ft length is perfect in small applications.

This cable has the D+/D- wires along side large-gauge VBUS/GND wires. Rated for 2A, we've successfully pulled 2A@5V with minimal voltage drop. If you're looking for a the full USB-C implementation checkout our USB 3.1 cable.

Good USB-C Cable - perfect length

Construction seems good, the USB-C connector is a bit rough, but works fine. But the length is great. You would not believe how hard it is to apparently get short USB-C cables. I missed the red though.
