These modern designers have no respect to industry standard and create any special connectors they like. Whenever I add a new USB device into my portable collection, I have to carry one more lengthy and stiff cable.
Can you believe it, I have to carry a bag just to hold these stupid 6-feet cables. Let's do something about this mess.
These are currently available: USB A-to-A, USB A-to-mini, and all the Sprint cell phone cables that Radio Shack carries.
Please specify the cable type in the message field of the online order form.
To be honest, Zip*Linq has all the standard USB and Firewire cables and you don't need to buy those from us.
However, that retractable wheel is still too thick to me and I don't want to carry too many of them but one extension.
Zip*Linq really should remove the two white plates to make it thinner.
Also cut off a 1.5 in heat-shrink tube for later use
This way, the to-be-soldered contacts will not touch each other.
Don't forget to put on the heat shrink tube to one side before you start soldering
Looks rugged and decent, does it?
