USB OTG Using a Female to Female Adapter





Introduction: USB OTG Using a Female to Female Adapter

Step 1: Usb Cable

i used a usb cable i had that was shorting and not a new one for this instructable.

tools needed:


sharp knife

solder iron

electrical shrink tube

if u have a female to female adapter all u have to do is make the usb cable shorter an not change the end.

first i cut off the male end of the usb to the length i needed then connect the wires using the link / instructions in my intro.

i then plugged it into a samsung s3 an the phone recognized it as a mass storage device which means all wires was soldered to their correct terminals.

Step 2: Securing the Wires

once all wires were soldered correctly i then used hot glue to insulate the wires from shorting on each other then used electrical shrink tubing to further insulate and make the cable look appealing.

Step 3: Finish Product

the female to female adapter and a flash drive were all put together then connected to the phone.

the phone recognises and can open and transfer files using the OTG cable made from a old usb cable.
