This MHL cable allows compatible smartphones or tablets to transfer their display to a TV or monitor. This enables you to watch movies, play games and display it all on a large screen.

Please note: MHL is becoming widely used on smartphones and tablets. However, not every device is enabled for it. Please check your device's manual to ensure you can use an MHL cable.

There are two versions of MHL, 5pin and 11pin. Maplin has both versions.

In addition the display device you are connecting to dictates how this cable operates. MHL enabled display devices allow this cable to be powered without the need for an additional power supply. This product will work with a non MHL enabled display, but will need you to plug your microUSB charger into the USB port on this cable. This is because non-MHL enabled displays don't provide power and the cable will not work. Please check your product manual for details.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish! I bought this hoping to contact my phone to my tv so that I could watch movies on the big screen but it was as dead as a door nail. Tv says no signal, np matter what I have tried. What a waste of money. I would of given zero stars if allowed. Customer service when ordering and collecting was excellent though. Very polite, helpful.
