Description: USB Type ‘A’ Male connector. Ideal for making very small USB dongle devices that plug directly into a computer USB port or through a USB AtoA extension cable.

Not out of poor design but simply due to high use. It is a good idea to have a spare in the bin when one fails. Also nice to have a USB socket to port into a project box. Also can be used to make a bracelet connector with the female version and some ribbon.
