USB OTG cable

What is USB OTG cable?

A USB On-The-Go (OTG) cable is a specialized type of USB cable that allows devices like smartphones, tablets, and other portable electronics to act as either a host or a peripheral when connected to other USB devices. In a typical USB connection, one device acts as the host (such as a computer) and the other as a peripheral (such as a keyboard, mouse, or storage device).

However, with a USB OTG cable, a device that would normally function as a peripheral can also function as a host. This means that you can connect various USB devices directly to your smartphone or tablet without needing a computer as an intermediary. This capability greatly enhances the versatility of mobile devices.

USB OTG cables typically have a micro-USB or USB-C connector on one end (which plugs into the mobile device) and a standard USB Type-A connector on the other end (which connects to the peripheral device). Some cables might also have adapters or additional connectors to support different types of devices.
