OWC Y-Cable

USB 3.0 Micro-B to Dual Standard Male A

Connect and power your external hard drive via USB 3.0 on systems that lack sufficient power via USB!
Can't power your external hard drive via your computer's USB bus? The Other World Computing USB 3.0 'Y'-cable provides a transfer rate of up to 4.8 Gbps when connected with a USB 3.0 compliant host and device. Twisted pair cabling and shielded construction ensure this USB 3.0 cable meets or exceeds current USB 3.0 SuperSpeed standards.

Molded strain relief protects ensures years of trouble-free data transmissions. An additional USB type-A connector allows the cable to be connected to two USB ports (2.0 or 3.0) for maximum power and performance.

While a perfect compliment to the OWC On-The-Go Pro USB 3.0 Storage Solutions, this "Y" Type Dual USB 2.0 A to 5 Pin Micro B Cable will also work with many other computers and bus powered external hard drives.

Rating: 3/5 ok for a few models May 11, 2015 I was SOOO EXCITED to get this and then realized it only really fit my old macbook pro with usb ports on the same side. my latest one (that I use the most) has one on each side. BIG UNHAPPY FACE I wish the split would accommodate reaching around a laptop to another port
