    Dual USB Type "A" male plugs to single USB Mini-B 5 pin male plug.  This cable is designed to tap two USB ports on your computer.  The first plug establishes a data connection and draws on the ports power supply.  The second USB Type A plug draws additional power to augment the power supplied by the first in order to power high power draw devices like external hard drives. 
    NOTE:  You CAN NOT use this cable to share a single USB perpheral between two different computers or visa versa.  This can IS NOT a splitter.

    Looking to power a USB fan setup(1x intake, 1x exhaust - 5.2W, 1.0A total) for cooling the inside of my TV stand. There is a PS3 and an xbox 360 in the stand and i would like the fans to be running when either of them are being used. They will never both be on at the same time. Would this work just to provide power to the one fan usb connector when either system is on?

    BEST ANSWER: Hi, this cable has not been tested with a similar setup to what you described so we can't confirm. But there are several unknowns that might prevent this from working the way you want to, like: could the USB ports supply enough power (standard ports only supply 500mA so powering from one device only might not work); will the console USB ports supply power even with no data connection; would the USB ports switch off when the consoles aren't on?

    Saved my USB drive
    If you have a USB hard drive that makes a clicking sound when you plug it in, you need this cable. The clicking means that the drive is not getting enough power from the USB port to spin up. I had a cheapo USB hard drive that I bought refurbished it worked fine on one PC, with a regular cable, but would not work on another. The 2nd PC's USB ports were not giving enough power to the drive. Using this cable to hook it up to 2 ports at once solved the problem.

    This cable fills a very specific need, but it fills it well. It's only for USB devices that don't get enough power from a single port. This is not for USB drives that have their own power supply.

    Works with slim USB DVD writer
    I used this with the USB 2.1amp power adapter (pid 10273) to provide more than enough power so it runs properly I just didn't have an internal or external USB port that worked. I'm sure 1amp USB ports would work just as well.

    PROS: - Perfect for external devices that need more power such as 2.5" hard drive enclosures and slim DVD drives.

    CONS: - Would be nice if there were longer lengths available. I had to use two USB extensions to put my DVD drive in a convenient spot.

    Just what my old Toshiba HDD needed
    Needed a cable for my old mini USB Toshiba that could transfer data and keep it powered up. The two cables I had were not cutting it. It was the perfect length and has worked every time at a reasonable speed

    PROS: Low price. Worked exactly as advertised.

    CONS: None

    I was originally using a single USB cord for my external bluray drive and I was wondering why it was disconnecting all the time. Then I figured out that it wasn't getting enough power from the single USB cord. Glad I was able to find one of these dual USB cords on here. Works perfectly!

    Excellent for Wii U
    The Wii U's USB ports don't seem to produce enough juice to power a hard drive. That's why Nintendo has you buy one that uses an external power source. Given that reality and many external drives around without an external power source, you can use this inexpensive cable to avoid needing to use another power outlet!

    Buy it with confidence if you're hooking up a hard drive to your Wii U.

    PROS: Fills the need of adding enough power to an older external hard drive so I can use that drive with the Wii U.

    CONS: None
