Connect USB flash drives, PC mice, game controllers and more to your mobile devices with the ultimate On-The-Go cable for Micro USB devices!
This Avencore Crystal Series USB Type-A (Female) to Micro-B USB (Male) OTG Cable performs a dual purpose. Firstly as a USB 2.0 Adapter, it can convert a regular USB Type-A (Male) plug to a Micro-B USB plug. Secondly, when used with a mobile device supporting On-The-Go (OTG) functionality, you'll be able to directly connect devices like USB drives, PC keyboard or mouse and USB game controllers. Support for these devices may vary depending on your smartphone or tablet model.
It seems every new gadget these days is packing a nifty Micro USB connector for data and charging. Now, though you can adapt that Micro USB port to a regular USB Type-A socket. Why you may ask? Because it now allows you to direclty plug in all sorts of USB goodies like mice, keyboards, game controlers and USB flash sticks to name but a few. On Android, only simple devices can work, but for Windows-based tablets, you can also access hubs and printers, etc.
Not all devices support On-the-Go functions, and OTG adapters like this are wired specifically for OTG-ready products, so they may not be suitable in all applications. However, if your device states OTG or On-The-Go compatibility in the product manual, this cable is the one for you. And, it's a high quality accessory backed by a massive warranty!
