USB 2.0 Retractable Cable - A Male to Mini 5-Pin - 2.5 Ft
You'll never deal with a tangled USB cable again when you use this USB 2.0 Retractable Cable from Monoprice!
This flat, 2.5-foot long USB 2.0 cable is wound around a central spring-loaded spool. Pulling on the two connector ends unwinds the cable, while the internal ratchet action keeps the cable extracted to the length you want. Pull the cable ends to their limit and the cable will easily wind itself back around the spool, thereby preventing tangles.
This USB 2.0 cable features a USB A male connector on one end and a 5-pin USB mini B male connector on the other end. The spool assembly measures about 1.3" in diameter and is about 0.6" thick.
PROS: Retractable, price
I've been using these retractable cables for years with no problems. These miniUSB cables are my second most common cable after microUSB. There is not as much copper in these retractable cables compared to standard cables because they're made to be flat and thin but I haven't seen any degradation in data nor power when using these.
Whenever I buy them, I buy a couple at a time. Placed in an electronics travel organizer alongside a 4-port USB wall charger, 4-port USB car charger, some microUSB retractable cables, and my 16,000mAh battery, I've got power wherever I need it.
PROS: Small & Light
PROS: The cord retracts without tangling, and spent get tangled or accidentally pulled
