    I have to wonder if a type-B connector on the end is really the right choice at this point. I still have some 20 year old devices kicking around with B-type receptacles on them, but I feel like most people have never even seen a USB-B connector at this point. Perhaps an A-type receptacle would be a better choice if you change the cable in a future revision? There's still loads of stuff using A-type plugs, causing some frustration for people with laptops that mostly just have C-type receptacles.

    Pay attention to the "max 500 mA" note at the end. This is not a charging cable.
