Replace your worn-out original.

Portable hard drives are really great, except that being portable, they can be subject to extra wear and tear. That's all well and good for the expensive part that's engineered to withstand the abuse, but what about the cheap cable they included? They don't always last as long.

Grab yourself a spare or a replacement right here! This 60cm USB 2.0 cable is designed specifically for external hard drives which require additional power to run. This situation can come up on older HDDs which were more thirsty, or if your USB sockets throttle power output (like on some laptops).

Basically, if your external hard drive came with a Y-cable like this one, then you're all set to replace it and use our fully shielded aftermarket option in the same way. Good for any portable HDD which has a 5-Pin 'Mini B' type socket as pictured. Runs to two regular Type-A USB jacks at the other end for use with your PC or laptop.

Question: Do you have any Micro to 2x Type-A cables.
My car has only 1 x low powered Type-A
socket that is not enough power to run
phone & charge. Would like to use external
power from aux & usb while using device?
Answer: "Not exactly. This Mini-USB cable can be adapted to suit using a Mini to Micro adapter (product code USB2011), but we don't know if this will provide the power your device needs or not."
Posted: 20th July, 2015
Question: Do You Have Any Other Sizes?
Answer: "Unfortunately this is the only size we currently stock, but the cable can be made longer by attaching two standard USB extension cables (E.g. code: USB1001)."

"Wasn't sure what to expect for the low price, but delighted to say the 12m HDMI cable is excellent - perfect picture and sound with no booster required. Delivery was very fast as well - a couple of days. Thanks Cable Chick!"
