Sony SPA-UL7 L-Shaped 27″ Micro USB Cable (SPA-UL7)
The Sony SPA-UL7 micro USB cable is used to charge your compatible device or transfer data at up to 480 Mbps. The cable features a standard USB connector on one end and an L-shaped micro USB connector on the other. This angled connector makes it easy to connect even when you’re using your device in tight spaces.
In general, there are three basic formats of USB connectors
- the default or standard format intended for desktop or portable equipment (for example, on USB flash drives)
- the mini intended for mobile equipment (now deprecated except the Mini-B, which is used on many cameras)
- the thinner micro size, for low-profile mobile equipment (most modern mobile phones).
Also, there are 5 modes of USB data transfer, in order of increasing bandwidth: Low Speed (from 1.0), Full Speed (from 1.0), High Speed (from 2.0), SuperSpeed (from 3.0), and SuperSpeed+ (from 3.1); modes have differing hardware and cabling requirements. USB devices have some choice of implemented modes, and USB version is not a reliable statement of implemented modes. Modes are identified by their names and icons, and the specifications suggests that plugs and receptacles be colour-coded (SuperSpeed is identified by blue).
