    Do you have a USB Cable you dont think you could do without, a favorite if you will?

    My Favorite is a 6 in 1 USB Charging Cable (Well it does data for the 30 Pin iPod connector too) but its a charger for

    USB Mini B
    PSP
    NDS / GBA SP
    DSLite
    DSi
    iPod (30 Pin)

    Most of my stuff gets charged through that via my HP USB Wall adapter :) (that provides 1A so I can charge 2 things at once :D )

    I got one of those :) Well... 7 actually. I used to sell them on ebay. Used to have a black one too which also did data over mini-usb and had an additional connector for DLi/3DS - dunno where that one went

    I probably have like 15 USB cables, at least 3 of the completely custom deals (I hate those cables as they work with precisely one device each...) If companies would stick with the main 3 sizes, I think USB would be awesome and I would probably only own like 5 or 6 cables instead of the grocery bag I have now.

    My PS3 charging cable. I'd be knackered without that.

    well there's a lot usb type cable out there
    but... these 2 type are so popular, in my opinion represent what UNIVERSAL means in USB.

    left one is popular thanks to nokia (though I really don't know what first device using that type), and the right one, well.. almost smartphone is using that kind of type to charge/transfer data.

    I dont really have a right hand USB cable, but I do have a small HDD that I carry in my pocket everywhere, it features a full USB port, So I can drop data on it from almost anything. Its pretty cool but it doesnt work with my phone since it acts like a drive when its in file transfer mode.

    I guess the double full port cable I use on it would be my right hand.

    I do have one favourite USB cable... because for whatever reason, it's the only one that my Wii HDD recognizes - without it, the games do show up but immediately freeze upon boot because the drive goes into Sleep Mode for whatever reason.

    I always carry one A-to-mini-B and one A-to-micro-B cable with me. Because that are the types used everywhere. I need to add an OTG cable to that selection though.
