Connect and power your external hard drive via USB on systems that lack sufficient power via USB!
Can't power your external hard drive via your computer's USB bus? The OWC Y-Type cable provides a convenient and flexible solution. This handy cable attaches to two USB ports on your computer to supply sufficient power to an external bus powered storage solution.
Designed with an additional length of cable between the plugs, you can now utilize USB ports located on opposite sides of your computer. While a perfect compliment to the OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro
, this Y-Type Dual USB 2.0 A to 5 Pin Mini B Cable will also work with many other computers and bus powered external hard drives.
