USB-C is fantastic, and one of the features we love so much about USB-C has been replicated to the USB-A 2.0 plug! These cables have minor yet genius modifications that allow them to be plugged into their ports regardless of orientation. No longer will you fight the USB "super position" where both orientations of your plug seem incorrect. It's a simple solution to a problem that nearly everyone has faced.

These cables come in 2m, 0.8m and 0.3m variations.


Reversible USB A to Reversible Micro-B Cable - 2m

CAB-15429

One of the features we love so much about USB-C is that it is naturally reversible, but now it works with all your Micro-B devices as well! Both the USB-A and Micro-B connections on these cables have been fitted with reversible types of their normal terminations, just like the USB-C cables above.

These cables come in 2m, 0.8m and 0.3m variations.


That's it for this week! As always, we can't wait to see what you make! Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or let us know on Instagram or Facebook. We’d love to see what projects you’ve made!
