    Why not just unplug it if you want to switch it off?

      That requires you to move an extra 50cm

      That's the sort of thing people would say when they first invented the remote control

      Phones aren't the only thing that use micro USB. I could think of heaps of uses where I have wanted to kill the power 2 a device (ras pi for eg) but have 2 unplug it, saves wear n tear on an already shitty connector type… Especially if u like 2 tinker around like I do, phone flashing etc…

        USB fans and lights first came to mind.

        Always handy to have a nearby torch always ready especially in the middle of the night and a nice fan is always a good thing.

      you already have a free switch. it's where you plug it into the wall.

        Or something basically the same from Aliexpress for $1.12 USD in case anyone spots this deal after it's over and wanted one as well - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Raspberry-Pi-Power-Cable-wit...

        I've been getting my aliexpress deliveries in ~2 weeks recently, sometimes as soon as 1 week/5-6 business days (not sure how that's even possible - Australian stock???). Last few times I've ordered from Zapals it's taken months for arrivals :/

          let me see over $1 v under $1 same delivery cost.

          vagaries of delivery time…….. oz bargain = pay more for maybe on a good day it comes quicker or may be not….

        My power outlets don't have switches on them.

        Not everyone's power point is easily accessible. eg Mine is behind the bedside draws

    •  

      Given the notorious short life of some cables and/or ports it actually gets quite annoying if you have to do it daily like I do for a bluetooth headset I have at my desk.

      One of those older devices where it can't be used and charged at the same time.

  •  

    could this turn on the bluetooth music receiver adapter from the other deal?

  •  

    Thanks OP. Got one.

  •  

    Bit of a long shot for anyone to know, but anyone happen to know if this is a double-pole switch or (most likely) a single-pole where it just switches off the +5V rail?

    As mentioned in an above comment I have a BT headset that you can't use and charge at the same time. I have it hooked up to an old USB2.0 hub which has inbuilt power switches, but found even when switched "off" for me to use it there would be a slight buzz coming out of the headset from what I'm assuming is a noisy ground still being connected.

    •  

      The only info I have is what is listed above, but it's only $1.31 so won't be a huge loss if it doesn't meet you needs.

  •  

    First thing that came to mind was now properly controlled USB fans and USB lights but now I just need a micro USB to USB adapter for both.

  •  

    does anyone know if its a low powered cable and therefore charging phone will be super slow with it?

  •  

    Turn on and off the NES and SNES mini?

  •  

    I always wanted one of those for my mk808, shame the power connector is mini USB

    •  

      You can buy adapters to convert it to whatever you need.

      •  

        I thought so, but after 4 years in mastering the art of contorsionism to reach the switch on the power point, now I'm just waiting for a decent deal on a new android box.

    These work, but just be warned - 1m is too short to be useful, with these kind of cables, really.

  •  

    I don't get it, it says coupon is for registered users only, I created and verified an account but still can't get the discount price.

  •  

    Whoops wrong thread!

    •  

      Just checked and it is still US$0.99

      Check and make sure that your logged in, nothing else is in your cart and shipping option selected.

    I tested mine today with my phone and unfortunately it does not support fast charging

    •  

      Got mine today as well. Yep doesn't support fast charging (from a Samsung fast charger) but charges as fast as a normal charger which is good enough for me. Not as bad as some of the really cheap cables which take like eight hours to charge a phone.
