A mini USB cable, sometimes mistaken for a micro-USB cable, is an increasingly common device used for transferring information from one device to another. The popularity of the many USB is due in large part to the explosion of smart phones and tablet devices which use them to connect to a PC or a wall charger. Although many cables can vary in size from 3 mm to 7 mm, the vast majority of devices utilize the same size connector. A micro USB cable is the industry-standard as of 2007, but most individuals consider the terms many USB and micro USB to be interchangeable despite the fact that they are not exactly the same.

One of the biggest benefits to using a this type of cable is the fact that data can be transferred from one device to another at a relatively rapid pace. Most many USB cables are designed for USB 2.0 connections. In addition to cell phones utilizing these cables, many digital cameras and GPS navigation devices are also designed for a this type of cable. In most cases, a cable that works with one device will work with another although there are rare instances where a device is designed to only be used with the original cable that was provided with it or an OEM replacement.

A mini USB cable comes in one of three different types, there are A, B and AB. Telling these three different form factors apart is relatively simple thanks to the fact that they are colour-coded. A adapters have a receptacle that is white on the inside while the inside of B adapters is black. AB adapters are gray on the inside. When replacing a worn or broken cable, is a good idea to double check the inside of the connector to make sure that the replacement unit is a direct match.

By using a mini USB cable as the industry-standard for portable devices, it is likely that a person has several around their home. These cables are preferred by device manufacturers because of the fact that they are able to transmit both data and power making it possible for a person to charge their device while also transferring pictures, videos, or documents. The cables are available a number of different lengths and a single high-quality cable may be able to replace a handful of cheaper units simply because they are able to connect to so many different devices in a home.
