What is USB?
Commonly found on desktop computers and laptops, USB connections are among the most versatile type of connections. USB is primarily used for transferring data between devices, but it also has the ability to transfer power between compatible devices. Currently four versions of USB exist – USB 3.1 (10Gbps), USB 3.0 (5Gbps), USB 2.0 (480Mbps) and USB 1.1 (12Mbps). In most cases cables are compatible across all versions but maximum transfer speed may be limited. For example, a USB 2.0 cable in a USB 3.0 port would only provide a maximum transfer rate of 480Mbps, not 5Gbps. To achieve optimum transfer speeds here, a USB 3.0 cable should be used.

Why use this USB 2.0 A to micro B USB 2.0 cable?
This cable uses USB 2.0 A and micro B USB 2.0 connectors. It is mainly used to connect a large range of portable devices to a desktop or laptop computer using USB A ports. These devices would typically include mobile phones or tablets that use micro USB B connectors to either transfer data or to charge the device. The cable provides a maximum speed of 480Mbps when both devices use USB 2.0 ports.
