Short USB A-B cable recommendations?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Can anyone recommend a short (around 6-10 inch) USB A-B cable to use for connecting my DAC to laptop?

 

Ideally a flexible cable. So far I have found a Belkin Pro Series 6in cable but read that it does not bend easily.

 

Thanks

I would recommend Monoprice, but I think the shortest is 1.5'.

They are extremely hard to find. You might have to go custom made.

pexon does them for the keyboard set, USB cables have custom options, and you can specify length down to a foot. You'd pick USB A male with USB B Male.

 

I never thought of this before but I guess USB B was pretty much *only* made for external peripherals that need a jack defined as 'connect this to a pc'.

It is neither hard to find nor required custom made, you just need to know how to find it.

 

Search eBay for 'short printer cable'

Thanks for the tip on Pexon. Their cables look great and looks like they will make any length you need

Had a look at Pangea but didn't see anything under 1 ft

They do custom also takes about 5 days

This is because the price is for a packet of 50 cables as specified in the item description further down the listing.
