Unplugging USB devices just to remove power is a thing of the past with this handy little microUSB extender. It's got a female microUSB socket on one end, and a male microUSB plug on the other, with an inline switch which allows you to power on and off your devices without having to constantly unplug them. It's perfect for Raspberry Pi, card readers, anything that uses microUSB.

Length: 260mm

These cables are power cables only. They DO NOT transfer data.

  • We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards. During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...

    Hello to all of you,
    I didn't know how many of you out there were aware of these awesome little MICRO USB power switches for our single board computers and project boards we all love playing with.
    I didn't know they existed until i spotted them being used on videos on you tube.
    I then began searching for them and i should have known, CORE ELECTRONICS had them , of course.
    I was always paranoid about handling the board and unplugging the plug pack micro usb connector from the board.
    Sure you can turn off or on the mains power, but sometimes that can be a pain when juggling 15 things at once at the same time.
    For a few dollars do yourself a favour and buy yourself one, or a few as i did.
    I have several as well as several genuine Raspberry Pi Power Plug Packs.
    With the genuine Raspberry Pi Plug Pack and a Micro USB In-Line Power Switch Part Number CEO 4814 you can't go wrong.
    All your power supply needs are met for most needs.
    Regards
    Dave. (Posted on 1/07/2018)

    The Raspberry Pi does not have a power switch, but this is easily overcome with this In-line Power Switch Cable. Plug one end into your Pi and the other into your Power Supply and presto, you have a power switch. (Posted on 18/10/2017)
