      This adapter works for my OTG/USB host product.

      Hi, Everybody: This is a truly wonderful adapter if your product has OTG/USB Host capability, and you need to check and find out for sure if it really does before your making the purchase. I have the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, and I have been able to directly connect up my Olympus TG-830 camera and import photos and videos. I next learned to change the settings on the camera to be able to use the adapter to move files TO AND FROM the SD card that is inside the camera. This is important, because the camera uses a full-size and not a micro SD card, which would never fit into the tablet, and I didn't want to buy a micro SD card with an adapter. I also hooked up another tablet that does not have OTG/USB Host capability to the Tab S, and I could import photos and videos. Next, I turned off USB Debugging on that other tablet, and was able to work with whatever settings were necessary to be able to move files to and from this other tablet, meaning both its internal storage and external SD card. Therefore, in this case I could transfer to and from internal and external sources in both directions (four sources in all) when operating from the Tab S. Obviously, this adapter has many other potential uses, yet I am quite thrilled with what I have already been able to accomplish. Please be careful to note that this fits micro USB ports on the small end, and NOT the new USB C ones. For that you need a different adapter. Have Fun, John

      Must Have For Tablets!

      I needed this for my new Amazon Fire HD 10 - had to copy work Word Docs from my Flash Drive to the huge 32 GB internal storage space...and SD card - but the Fire HD only has a Micro USB so this little gadget/gizmo works as it should (and my Flash Drive shows up as storage on the tablet). I keep it with my Fire in the case - and I'm able to work, even w/o WiFi, because I can ALSO use this to take my work from the Fire HD on the external Flash Drive and then plug it into the micro USB slot on my Android phone and email my work THAT way if I'm no where near a hot spot. Samsung devices usually include this OTG cable, but no matter, Best Buy had what I needed (I also bought a USB-C version for my Samsung Tablet). This has made my work/home life balance AMAZING! I am doing freelance dictation so this enables me to leave my house and still earn $$ AND not have to lug my laptop everywhere! So happy.

      Pretty useful if your phone supports it

      I'm not sure how I had never heard about OTG cables before, but I was pretty surprised that these were an option for some phones. I realized that if the phones I had supported the OTG technology then a simple, inexpensive cable like this would be well worth the purchase. I wasn't 100% sure if my phones were OTG or not (there are apps you can use to supposedly verify, but these aren't always 100% accurate). The Best Buy rep didn't have any way of knowing for sure if the OTG cable would work on my phones or not. He was very helpful to point out that BB's return policy would allow me to buy it, try it, and return it within 15 days if it didn't work. I purchased the cable, and it did turns out that my primary phone does have OTG but the secondary phones I use don't. This cable is short and simple with enough flexibility and firmness to make me think it'll last while with basic care. The small size also makes it very portable. It secures firmly into the phone, and the flash drive fits firmly into the cable. Overall this makes for a great connection.I think if more people knew about OTG they would use it (assuming their phone is capable). Hope this helps. Thanks. Matthew 7:12

      I have had this connector for about a month now, and I love it! I'm a student, so I mainly use this for school purposes. For example, I used this today to finish writing an essay during my lunch for a class since my essay was saved to my flash drive, which I connected to my phone with this adapter. It came in handy since it saved my grade as the essay was due at the end of the day today! I bought this item because: -I wanted an adapter like this -The adapter that came with my phone did not work with mu case on, while this one did -This adapter has a fantastic price This product has great reliability and a strong build- the part in the middle can be moved a bit but is a bit stiff (this seemed a bit unclear to me from the image). Overall, great product, would buy again (if this ever happens to break, which I doubt), and I would definitely recommend it!

      Does what it says. Well designed & built

      What can you say, really, it's a 3" conversion plug, OTG. It lets you connect standard USB B 1&2 devices to Android micro-A port, via the OTG's USB A port and micro-B plug. Useful for game controllers, drives, VR and many other things. This and a hard drive/external and you can transfer all your photos/videos and misc. files from your portable/phone/tablet/android to drive or wherever . At around $8 it's worth having one in each car glovebox or routine personal carry bag, just in case or as a great simple gift or on the spot hero maker/problem solver, that won't break or take up space. More useful to "old guard" types; kids seem to do this stuff wirelessly.

      This OTG dongle works great for my DJI Spark!

      I bought this dongle specifically to be used with my DJI Spark. Using WIFI with the drone, the video would cut in and out even when the drone wasn't very far away and it made me hesitant to use it. I ended up reading about using this OTG dongle to get a better connection and jumped right on it. I can DEFINITELY tell the difference. The video quality is significantly better in shorter and longer distances.The OTG dongle itself is made very well, solid construction and I don't have any doubts about its longevity.

      I use it to plug my usb sticks to my tablet to quickly and easily view and rapidly scroll through my security camera videos. The security camera system is located at a remote location, no internet connection, so I have to download the videos to a usb stick which I can now view directly off the usb stick at my convenience vice having to transfer the video to the tablet which is slow and inconvenient. Then I only save the video clips that have information I want to save. For just a few bucks, this is totally worth it - easy to use and very convenient.

      Adds Flashdrive to Micro-SD Devices

      Bought this so I could use my USB peripherals with a Nextbook that only has one micro-SD port. So far, I've only used it to connect a flash drive. It worked, albeit a bit slower than I expected. Still, it weighs less than toting the full size laptop on location, so I think it's acceptable. Price is higher than similar products sold online, but this is a name product with a good reputation and us available in store, which I prefer. May see if it works with a tablet. Will update with results if it works.
