Product Description

When a standard USB cable cannot transfer enough power to operate an external device, such as a portable 2.5in hard drive, you need a USB 2.0 y-cable. Simply plug this cable's USB Mini-b end into the device, and then plug the two USB A ends into open USB ports on one PC or Mac. This cable then pulls power from both USB ports, and thus increases the output to the external drive.

The red molded hood on the auxiliary USB A connector enables the user to quickly distinguish between main and auxiliary power. Foil and braid shielding reduces EMI/RFI interference, and twisted pair construction reduces crosstalk for high speed, error-free data transfer. This cable is compatible with USB 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 specifications.

Please Note: This cable is not designed to split USB signals to multiple computers. The two USB A connectors are meant to plug into USB ports on the same computer. Furthermore, thanks to customer feedback, we have extended the length of the arms of the Y from 9 to 12 inches.

        Comments about 6ft USB 2.0 One Mini-b Male to Two A Male Y-Cable:

        I had a problem getting my WD My Passport external drive to work with my PowerBook G4. I finally found a comment on-line that the problem was that the G4 USB port did not supply enough current for the Passport. This cable allows me to get power from both USB ports and seems to work fine. I had to buy an extra mini USB to micro USB adapter (would be nice if there was a micro USB version of the cable) and the cords are a little short but they do work.

            Comments about 6ft USB 2.0 One Mini-b Male to Two A Male Y-Cable:

            This cable replaced the one that came with my external hard drive.
            The flimsy cable that came with my hard drive
            was not functioning so I thought I had lost everything on my external hard drive.
            I was saved by this new cable. It is very obviously much sturdier than my original cable
            and no doubt it will last longer.

              Needed the Y-cable to power my new Toshiba external hard drive. No one had what I needed...Not Apple, not Radio Shack, no one. Cables to Go had exactly the right cable at the right length at the right price. Awesome!

              Service and delivery comments:

              Great delivery, quick and intact.
