One slight niggle but apart from that... – Micro USB On-The-Go Host OTG Adapter (Pair) Reviews

Pros:
It works! Not much I can add to that really; it works like an absolute charm. Plug one side into my Samsung Galaxy SII, the other into a USB stick or USB mouse, and it works.
Build quality is good in that it won't fall apart. Also two for the price of... well, nothing! £1.50 for two, when they're going for £5 or more or eBay EACH?! Absolute bargain!
Cons:
No power input as others have mentioned. Also, the USB (where USB sticks etc go) seems a bit tight; it has a habit of actually shaving the plastic off my cheap horrible USB stick.
But that's just plastic, and probably the fault of my cheap horrible plastic USB stick. Other USB devices work fine. Just a niggle, which is why it's 4 for the build quality.
Other:
If you want to use USB OTG, you NEED a special USB OTG adapter. Normal USB?USB Micro adapters will NOT work.
This is because the USB OTG Micro heads have a specific configuration, which you can actually do with some solder, but this has it done right out of the box - no thinking required!
Bottomline:
Interested? Buy it. No brainer.
