Even with the growing popularity of USB 3, there are still plenty of USB 2 devices around. USB A to Micro B Cable is one of the more popular connector USB 2.0 combinations. Hard drives, card readers, cameras, phones (other than the iPhones) still use them. Given this, the AmazonBasics Double Braided Nylon USB 2.0 A to Micro B Cable should be useful for many computer and tablet purposes.The cable is red making it easy to spot in a pile if, like me, you have a plethora of black USB 2 cables laying around. (The red also makes it look classier.) Although it's inexpensive, the AmazonBasics Double Braided Nylon USB 2.0 A to Micro B Cable is not cheaply made. With normal handling and care it should last for some time.
