    Nifty but, wish it also had Micro-A instead of just Micro-B.

    +John Zaleski ah see – there are way too many connectors….I knew there was something missing… Micro A is what most of the Android phones use right?

    No Device can have Micro-A, its not USB spec legal. Most all smartphones have a Micro-B and for those which have USB OTG support will have a Micro-AB port so either a Micro-B or Micro-A cable will plug into it. The A-side is the host and B-side the device. The purpose is you don't need a Host such as a PC, Mac, Linux machine. Phones or any device having a Micro-AB port can act as either Host or Device depending which end of the cable you plug into it. Most people are unaware or just too confusing but thats modern technology for ya :-).

    +John Zaleski holy crap – now I am even confused…..

    The worst part of this unit is their site is terrible… the descriptions are only done via a compatibility page vs. telling you what is on each cable..
