only 4 pins connected – USB to Mini USB 5-Pin Male Adapter Cables (2-Pack/60cm-Length) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Two cables for this price is a bargain. The cable worked as both charge and data transfer cable for my MIO PNA device.
Cons:
the cable has no outer shielding and the inner cables are quite brittle, so don't be surprised if they cable stops working after a while. I bought these because the title suggested a 5 pin connection, but after opening one cable it became quickly clear that only 4 wires are connected and pin 4 of the 5-pin USB mini connector isn't connected.
Other:
I managed to modify the cable for my purpose, so if you're not afraid for a little soldering this is a good buy.
Bottomline:
Quality could be better, but for this price what can you expect?
