This cable is the ideal choice for basic USB 2.0 connections until all hubs, chargers, and ports have transitioned to USB-C. Its design is thinner and more flexible compared to its 3.1 counterpart, making it suitable for USB to serial applications as well as direct connections to basic microcontrollers.
With its ability to support USB 2.0 speeds and charging up to 2A, this 0.3-meter cable is perfect for embedded enthusiasts who require a thinner, more flexible cable. It also offers the convenience of a reversible USB-C & USB-A connection. The 0.3m length is ideal for smaller applications.
This cable features D+/D- wires alongside large-gauge VBUS/GND wires. It's rated for 2A and has been successfully tested to pull 2A@5V with minimal voltage drop. For those seeking a full USB-C implementation, Sparkfun also offers a USB 3.1 cable.
