Micro USB 2.0 OTG Cable On The Go Adapter

With this OTG cable, just connect your micro usb phone from male micro usb port and add the driver to female usb port, then you can send the files directly on your phone or tablets easily as a host. Allows you to connect devices, like flash drive, card reader, mouse or a keyboard to your Micro USB OTG capable tablet computer or Smartphone directly at speed up to 480Mbps, controlling your device with a mouse and keyboard.

2420eb2112da59b8200fb26bbfb8e6e6-image-400x480I highly recommend everyone with an Android-based phone buy one of these adapters and keep it with you (at home or in your bag when you travel) — it comes in a 2-pack, so should be easy. It plugs into your micro-USB port (charging port) and lets you plug in USB devices. In this case, that USB device was a USB mouse, which lets you control your screen just as if you had touchscreen capability (my phone’s screen [digitizer] was unresponsive to touch after a drop). You likely have a USB mouse lying around somewhere or can find/borrow one (much more likely than finding one of these adapters). Plug your adapter into the phone and plug your mouse into the adapter. Voila! You now have control of your phone.

Yes, this is a bit clunky. I don’t expect you to be walking around town toting your phone, adapter, and mouse in your pocket and whipping it out to take a selfie on the street. But, it is very functional while working on a desk/table and sure beats having a working phone that you can’t interact with. Plus, you can also use it to attach other USB-based devices, such as a USB memory stick, which could make file transfers possible/easier, especially if you don’t have a microSD card. Other options include a keyboard or the wireless adapter for your keyboard or mouse.

FYI: Your phone is powering the USB device, so anything you plug in must be able to be powered by the phone or have separate power. In other words, it’ll work with a mouse and USB memory stick, but won’t power a external hard drive (unless the hard drive has its own power source).

Pros

** Simple workaround for an unresponsive touchscreen

** Micro-USB 2.0 and Micro-USB 3.0 Versions available

** Small and easy to carry

** Plug and play

** High quality, well built cable

** Angled adapter, which helps prevent bent adapters (FYI, the 3.0 version looks like it’s straight vs. angled)

** Bonus functionality for other USB devices (like memory sticks, keyboards, wireless mice)

Cons

** Full setup is clunky (not ideal for on-the-go use)

Final Thoughts

Take the 2 minutes to order this adapter now and put one in your work bag and keep the other at home. Fingers crossed you never have to use it. If you do, you’ll be so glad you have it!

Without a doubt, a Micro USB 2.0 OTG Cable is a good investment. There are many different cell phone cables available in the market, so be sure to test out a few before purchasing one.

Notes:

1.Before purchasing,please search online to make sure your phone had OTG function

2.The host will be power output status when connect OTG cable, also do not support both OTG and charging at the same time

3.Watch movie from flash drivers directly is not suggested,it would be better to watch movies by copy file to host first

4.Support flash drivers format:fat16, fat32, exfat, No NTFS!

5.For first-time user,please connect the cable to your sets first,and then reset the device
