Excellent, well priced, and extremely small and unobtrusive, mico-to-full USB connector. Ideal for connecting a USB wifi dongle to a raspberry pi zero.

Great little item, especially for the Pi Zero but useful with a B+ or P2.

This is a tiny adapter to allow standard USB leads or devices to plug into a micro-USB socket. The 'fat' end is completely hidden inside the USB plug on the device being connected, leaving the micro-USB plug sitting proud to plug into the device. This makes a very tidy way to use standard USB peripherals on, e.g. a Pi Zero: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CasjH8aW8AA5H_0.jpg The 'fat' end is a very tight fit inside the USB plug, needing a lot of force to push in and I was fearful of snapping or bending the relatively fragile micro-USB end. I found that using a pair of pliers to support the shoulders of the adapter (trying not to squeeze the pliers and thus damage the micro-USB plug) made it easier to apply the necessary force.

Small and easy to use, works very well and the price can't go wrong.

Worked fine for me with one exception: when I tried it with the official Raspberry Pi wireless dongle, it went too far in. Caused a short circuit when plugged into my Raspberry Pi Zero. Had to use pliers (and a worrying degree of force) to get the converter shim back out of the wifi dongle.
