SparkFun Cerberus USB Cable

I have been using this multi-cable from Sparkfun for a little over a year now. This cable is the best $7.00 i have ever spent. If you have a few different flavors of ┬ÁC's then you really need to add this to the bench. I don't know what i would do without one.

You’ve got the wrong USB cable. It doesn’t matter which one you have, it’s the wrong one. But what if you could have the right one? What if you could have the right one every time? Enter: The Cerberus.

The Cerberus is a three-headed cable-beast that will ensure that you’re never stuck looking for a USB cable that fits your device. At one end of the Cerberus you have the standard A-type connector, which you can plug into your computer or USB power supply; At the other end are three common USB connectors: B, mini-B and micro-B.

The Cerberus can transfer both power and data just like any USB cable and now comes standard with a USB hub so you will be able to connect up to three data devices at the same time! Thanks to the improvements we made to this Cerberus no longer will you run into issues when transferring large amounts of data (hard drives, flash drives, etc) or connecting Android and other mobile devices.
