Be aware that this cables will not work with any current Kindle or most tablets or phones.
Almost everything about Micra's product is right, including the price except maybe for the wire being a little thin but that doesn't matter much. It is USB 2.0 certified, therefore supporting transfer rates of up to 480Mbps and, if your device needs a Mini-B plug, this is the cable to get. Just pick the proper length: 3 ft for charging or data transfers off a laptop, 6 ft if you need to plug it on the back of a less portable device.
This being a commodity item, I am awarding it 5 stars mostly for 'price' and the convenience of it being available through Amazon's super-savers (free shipping) and it being delivered in a 'frustration-free' box.
Anyone in the market for a USB cable should be very careful because there are at least 6 kinds of USB connectors. If you are buying a cable that connects 'something' to your computer or laptop, the computer end of the cable will always be a USB-A or 'Type A' connector. At the other end, you may have a USB-B/Type B - a nearly square shaped connector used mostly to deliver power to a device but this is rare.Read more ›
So, if this is the cheapest USB A to USB Mini cable you can find, get it! It doesn't feel like the most insulated cable in the world, but it works...recommended above all others - until another decent but cheaper cable comes along, that is.
The Belkin Micra Digital USB A to USB Mini-5pin Cable is a good one at a reasonable price, and for my use, this 3-foot cable came in handy while trying to pull data from my old, backup BlackBerry Curve 8330 prior to permanent retirement. That done, it ended up replacing the original cable for an aging Toshiba 500 GB USB portable hard drive during a major system reconfiguration.
This 3-foot cable is perfect for older devices, but should not be confused with the newer devices with a with the smaller, flatter Micro-B end, such as the Micra Digital USB A to USB Micro-B Cable. If you have a newer smartphone, such as the Samsung Galaxy S III 4G Android phone, the BlackBerry Curve 9330 or any Kindle device, this is the type of cable you'll need. The Amazon Kindle Fire 5ft Micro USB Cable, Black (Works with all Kindle devices) is another good alternative.
But for older devices, this Belkin Micra Digital USB A to USB Mini-5pin Cable is an excellent choice. It's cost-effective, flexible yet sturdy, and the smaller end has a "B" marking so that it won't get confused with the newer cables.
The USB mini end is what really sealed the deal. While I was expecting the cable to be just another cable, it actually fits the controller better than the one that came with the system. It seems much easier to remove that the other and even looks like it fits better.
These cables are not expensive and are of very high quality. I recommend them for anyone looking for backup cords or even replacement ones. This cord feels much more natural than any other I've used for my charging needs.
