Product Description

Product Description

StarTech.com USB2HABMY1 - 1 ft USB Y Cable for External Hard Drive - USB A to mini B

Manufacturer's Description

This 1-foot USB-A to Mini-B Y-Cable provides two USB ''A'' Male connectors and a single USB ''mini-B'' Male connector - an ideal solution for providing the additional power required by some mini-USB External Hard Drives connected to the standard USB ports provided by most computers.

Especially valuable in situations where a single USB 2.0 port may not offer sufficient power to external hard drives, the USB A/Mini-B Y-cable can be connected to two ports on one PC to increase the power output to power the external device.

Aside from the additional power provided, this 1ft cable also offers high speed error-free data transfer.

The USB-A to USB Mini-B Y-Cable is backed by StarTech.com''s Lifetime Warranty.

I have a lot of miniUSB devices and it is really useful to have plenty at hand. One plug gives you power to the device and the other the USB connection. Admittedly, some devices don't need that much power or the USB port is powerful enough to deal with it but there are times when they don't and having a spare Y cable is a definite boon.

I needed more power to my external CD drive as a standard USB cable wasn't allowing it to spin up. This Y splitter cable gave me an extra USB A socket, which drew enough power to get the CD drive working so this did exactly what I needed it to do. I'd recommend this cable if you have any USB mini B devices that need extra power to work and therefore need to be connected to a secondary USB A slot.

Well made and does the job - provides extra power from adjacent USB socket. Leads are quite short so socket must be adjacent and HDD not far from USB. Could use extension USB cable though.

Arrived promptly as promised. Cable fits well, no data transfer problems. Second "end" of cable is for additional power only, but I've never had occasion to need it.

Cable works as it should no problems so far using it for a external hard drive on my games console.

I bought this to go with a SATA enclosure while trying to rescue files from my dead laptop's hard drive. My new laptop has USB 3.0 ports and I was advised that the USB 2.0 cable I had was possibly not powerful enough at 500. I bought this cable and everything started to work but the drive is *** and so I could not rescue the files but at least it was available to try. Well worth the money I spent on it.
