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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
