Hi everyone,


I'm trying to find a source for what seems to be a rather rare USB cable.


On one end I'm looking for an L-shaped USB 3 Micro B connector (this connector is kind-of "segmented" into two halves). Preferably the cable will exit to the right when looking at the pins, although a left-oriented one would also be acceptable.


The other end needs to be standard USB A. And if that's not enough, the length is also a problem: This will be inside a small Raspberry Pi case so 15 cm would probably be overkill - the smallest I've been able to find is a whopping 60 cm and there's no way that I'll be able to fit all that in there.


The only place I've been able to find one of these is AliExpress (link has pictures), which shows it as "no longer available".


Does anyone know where else I can get one of these? An NZ supplier is preferable but at this point I'll take what I can get.


Thanks :)

I can't see one from a local supplier.  Can you possibly find just a right angled adapter from Aliexpress or similar and then use a common straight cable?

That's a thought. I'll just wait and see whether anyone else has any ideas though :)
