Don't be fooled by the appearance of this cable, it's not just a regular micro USB cable, but a USB OTG (On the Go) adapter. With it you can connect a mouse, keyboard, or other standard USB device to a USB OTG port, like that on the Pi Zero/W.

The Pi Zero/W has two microUSB ports, one for power, and the other one is an OTG port which saves space and allows normal USB devices to be connected using this cable. It's perfectly designed for the Pi Zero, but if you're using it with anything, make sure the device is compatible as this cable doesn't contain any active circuitry, it only provides the physical adapter.

Tech Specs:

  • 6" (approximately) including the connectors

  • Tweeting Pi-Zero-W GIF Camera
  • I made a Raspberry Pi camera that captures GIF files and optionally tweets them over WiFi! It's built around a Raspberry Pi Zero W and a Pi Camera module. The camera connects to a pre-programmed WiFi network to tweet the gifs, but you can also retrieve them from a shared folder if you have another computer on that network. Take your snaps outside with diffuse light for best results. Here's me mucking around in our ca...

    An essential item for connecting to a Raspberry Pi 0 W,
    it works very well with a wireless keyboard and mouse combination too so you don't 'need' two USB plugs. (Posted on 1/08/2017)

    The USB cable is very bad quality. The connector head broken and make my raspberry pi always reboot. Can't use this cable at all.

    The USB OTG cable does what it says on the box. No issues with compatibility and the quality is excellent. I have used it with a USB to Ethernet converter along with a USB for mouse and keyboard connectivity faultlessly.
    A totally essential purchase with any Raspberry Pi Zero. (Posted on 26/07/2017)

    Without this cable, you can't use the USB port so hook up a USB hub to it and you have multi ports, like the Pi3 (Posted on 14/06/2017)

    I find the cable length a little annoying. Either the cable should be non-existent (i.e. a rigid adapter, like the mini-HDMI-to-HDMI one) or three times as long as this.
