Tripp Lite cables combine USB-A, Micro-B male connectors
Tripp Lite is shipping USB 2.0 OTG (On-The-Go) cables with a 2-in-1 connector, which the company says is an exclusive product.
The cables combine a USB-A male connector with a retractable Micro-B male connector. "The 2-in-1 connector offers convenience and application flexibility not previously found in a single cable," said the company. "When the Micro-B connector is retracted, the cables act as standard USB cables. When the Micro-B connector is extended, the cables act as OTG cables and connect to OTG-compliant Micro-B devices."
The cables are available with a Micro-B male connector or a USB-A female connector opposite the 2-in-1 connector.
“The demand for cables with OTG capability is growing,” said Tripp Lite Product Manager David Posner.
