Useful little adapter – Mini USB to Micro USB Adapter Reviews

I have a bunch of old Mini-USB cables, but when I upgraded phones and MP3 players I was stuck with some devices that needed Mini and some that needed Micro. This is the perfect solution for me, and I can use this while travelling too because the elastic cord ties around the neck of the Mini-USB cable quite easily and stays very secure. The contact on them is a bit loose, but if I get the connection right and just set it on the desk so it doesn't move it works great. I also ordered SKU 35005 and I can't tell the difference in build quality at all. Both have slightly finicky contacts, but both have a nice rubberized textured outside and a elastic cloth cord for attaching to the end of the Mini-USB cable.
As I said before, and as other people have mentioned, the contact can be a bit finicky sometimes. At first I thought my Mini USB cables were wearing out, but I tried those on my devices again and had no issues.
They're very useful. Get them if you have a bunch of mini usb cables that have been partially made obsolete by addition of micro usb cables to your gadget collection.
