→ Great for Android users, the Cable Matters On-The-Go (OTG) Micro-USB 2.0 to USB (M-F) Flexible Adapter Cable allows you get more use from your supported Android Tablet/Device.
→ I tested this OTG cable with the Asus Google Nexus 7, with both USB memory and USB devices like a mouse and keyboard. This cable worked great and as expected. The adapter is designed with an "L" shape to fit around most cases. Cable length is only 6", great for tossing in your computer bag for when you need it.
→ Product features a lifetime warranty and support from the manufacturer.
→ The Cable Matters On-The-Go (OTG) Micro-USB 2.0 to USB (M-F) Flexible Adapter Cable is good value for a quality OTG cable 2-pack. The two pack is a great idea for keeping one at home and one in your computer bag for the times you need to connect USB items to your tablet.
Yes, this is a bit clunky. I don’t expect you to be walking around town toting your phone, adapter, and mouse in your pocket and whipping it out to take a selfie on the street. But, it is very functional while working on a desk/table and sure beats having a working phone that you can’t interact with. Plus, you can also use it to attach other USB-based devices, such as a USB memory stick, which could make file transfers possible/easier, especially if you don’t have a microSD card. Other options include a keyboard or the wireless adapter for your keyboard or mouse.
FYI: Your phone is powering the USB device, so anything you plug in must be able to be powered by the phone or have separate power. In other words, it’ll work with a mouse and USB memory stick, but won’t power a external hard drive (unless the hard drive has its own power source).
** Simple workaround for an unresponsive touchscreen
** Inexpensive (2-pack!)
** Micro-USB 2.0 and Micro-USB 3.0 Versions available
** Small and easy to carry
** Plug and play
** High quality, well built cable
** Angled adapter, which helps prevent bent adapters (FYI, the 3.0 version looks like it’s straight vs. angled)
** Bonus functionality for other USB devices (like memory sticks, keyboards, wireless mice)
** Full setup is clunky (not ideal for on-the-go use)
Take the 2 minutes to order this adapter now and put one in your work bag and keep the other at home. Fingers crossed you never have to use it. If you do, you’ll be so glad you have it!

This cable works well, allowing you to connect a slave device with a Type A plug to the tablet's micro USB jack. I find that it works best to first connect the Type A device to the adapter cable, then plug the adapter cable into the tablet's USB jack. You wouldn't think that the order of connection would be important, but I noticed that it sometimes did make a difference, especially if using a powered USB hub.
I have used this cable with a Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ tablet running Android KitKat 4.4.2, and have connected the following USB devices:
- Several USB thumb drives, all formatted FAT32: Sandisk Cruzer Micro 4gb (USB 2.0), Patriot Supersonic Rage 32gb, Patriot Supersonic XT 16 gb (the Patriots are both USB 2.0/3.0).
- Panasonic LX7 point-and-shoot camera. The camera has a non-standard USB connector so it requires a special camera cable (which came with the camera), plus the camera must remain powered-on.
- Sandisk ImageMate All-in-One memory card reader (USB 2.0/3.0), to access the files on an SD card plugged into the reader, FAT32 format.
- External hard drive, NEXTODi, FAT32 format, using the drive's "wall-wart" external power supply.
- PC wired USB keyboard, PC wired USB mouse, at the same time, via a powered USB hub. This worked fine, although Android does not recognize a lot of the special editing and Windows keys on the keyboard.
- I tried two different external hard drives with NTFS format, neither of which worked, either directly connected or via a powered hub.
A couple of important points:
- When you are done using an attached mass storage device, be sure to "unmount" the device via software before physically unplugging it from the tablet. On an Android tablet, go to Settings->Storage, scroll down to "External USB Storage" and tap "Unmount external USB storage", then you can unplug the device.
- Whenever you have an external USB device attached to a tablet, the tablet's internal battery is providing power to the attached device. Therefore the tablet's battery can be depleted much more rapidly than normal. For any significant usage, you should consider attaching the external USB device via a powered USB hub, which provides power to the attached device rather than draining the tablet's battery. Even so, the battery is still powering the tablet, since you can't hook up the tablet's charger, plus a powered hub requires more gadgets and wires to be toted around.
This particular item is an especially good deal at the "two-fer" price, and Prime, to boot.
