Introduction: OTG Charging Cable
Charge you mobile phone using this charging cable from another OTG mobile phone
Step 1: Instruction to Make a Charging Cable
It could happen that your mobile phone does not have charge. Battery is dead. You forgot you power bank or your power bank itself not charged. But the surrounding people may have charge in their mobile. This cable will help you to borrow charge from others OTG mobile.
Its very easy to make. you have to connect two micro USB ( Type-B) plug parallely. But at the OTG side means the side which will be connected to the other mobile (power source) the pin 4 (Sense) should be connected with pin 5 ( GND).
Try it, and carry one with you. :)

Does anyone know, if you leave two phones plugged in like this for a few hours or longer, will they even out in charge? I'd imagine you get to the point where they both start to drain each other?

Nice ible, but can this cable act as a data cable? If it can, then make sure to put a disclaimer as to not use this cable to hack another phone. Hak5 (my profile pic is their logo) shown once that is it possible to run software on a rooted OTG capable phone to attack a helpless victim attached. Just as a heads-up.

LOL! Enjoyed your video. Thank you.
28AWG power wires? Well, though I understand that's not much of a deal with that kind of cord lenght, let me tell you that 1A current flow rate could imply above 2'5% (0'125V drop) power loss or so for that short little cable already.
Nice job anyway.
