    USB 2.0 A Male to Mini 5 pin (B5) Female Adapter

    For connecting onto a Mini B 5 pin male end of a USB cable to convert it to a male type A connector.
    The adapter has a female mini B 5 pin on one side and a male type A on the other.
    Please Note:  USB devices generally consist of host devices such as computers which usually have type A ports and down stream peripheral devices such as printers, cameras, etc, which use a Type B or some variation of mini or micro type B.  When connecting two devices together it is important to have a host on one end and a downstream device on the other.  The host device initiates communication, so if two downstream devices are connected directly to each other without a host, they will just sit there waiting for the other to initiate some action which will never happen.  If two host devices are connected together, they will generally conflict since appropriate drivers to control another host are not available.  The only downstream device that will connect directly to another downstream device is a hub or a device acting as a hub through which the secondary device can access the host through the first.

    Does not work

    Pros: Cheap

    Cons: Does not work. Do not buy!

    Mini USB cable will not plug into the female connector because the pin holes are not drilled out.

    Hello Mr. Smith,

    Sorry for the trouble you had with the adapter and it not working for you. I will have our Product Management Team look into this and test out the product for any issues. It's possible you may have received a faulty item and I can issue an RMA for a replacement if you like. I would just need your order number to get the process started. Or if you would simply like a refund I can issue that for you. Again my apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

    Saved us 10x the price

    Pros: Does the job. Tiny price

    We recovered a set of Chill Pill speakers when one of our kids went to college. While they were unwanted by him, I coveted them so I could listen to Pandora over my cell phone while having my morning coffee only problem was I couldn't recharge the buggers without the adapter. Thanks to Monoprice and this perfectly functioning adapter, I've got NPR with my Italian roast and all is well.

    Perfect for the Traveller

    Pros: Super compact, super inexpensive, and hey, its a cable. It works. What else is there to ask for?

    They're so cheap and so awesome I buy them a dozen at a time and give them to friends who see mine and inevtiably want one for themselves.

    Cons: Absolutely none.

    I'm on the road about 80% of the time. Packing ligher and smaller is something I'm always interested in and these help immensely with this. Prevents me from having to carry around a wad of wires that I have to untangle when I get to a customer site or want to work in an airport.

    I also get hassled a lot less by TSA as four of these look a lot less suspicious than a big old tangle of wires.

    Perfect for recharging my Tweaker speakers

    Pros: Well-constructed, fit for purpose

    Cons: None

    I misplaced the small USB adapter used for charging the Tweaker speakers I use with my netbook. This is the perfect replacement for that part I've added it to my MonoPrice wish list in case I ever lose this one!
