StarTech Apple Dock Connector and Micro-USB to USB Combo Cable Review

If you want to synchronize Micro-USB, iPhone, iPod or iPad devices using one cable, the Apple Dock Connector and Micro-USB to USB Combo Cable provides a basic but dependable answer to connect Micro-USB or iOS-powered mobile digital devices to a laptop or desktop computer for synchronization or charging the battery.

For battery charging and data synchronization between the computer and an iPhone, iPad, iPod or Micro-USB device, the 0.65-meter black cable helps with its combined Micro-USB connector and Dock Connector on an end and a standard USB male connector on the other to connect directly (or through a dock) to a computer’s USB port. For charging devices only, attach the cable to a USB power adapter and plug into a wall outlet.

The cable’s left connector ends on a 4-pin USB Type A male connector, while the right connector either ends on an Apple Dock male connector or a Micro-USB Type B male connector.

The Apple Dock Connector and Micro-USB to USB Combo Cable is fully compatible with all generations and versions of iOS devices – iPods, iPhones, iPads – and Micro-USB devices. It can charge these devices anywhere from a computer, USB wall charger, or vehicle USB charger. It is suitable for repeated connections or disconnections to or from iPhone, iPod or iPad and Micro USB devices.
