This is a USB 2.0 type A to Mini-B 5-pin cable. You know, the mini-B connector that usually comes with USB Hubs, Cameras, MP3 players, etc. You can use this with our LiPo Charger, FTDI Basic Programmer or even combine it with the CP210x IC and SMD Mini-B connector to create your own portable USB device!
The best part? It's SparkFun Red and has the flame logo embossed on the connector shroud. Sweet.
