Hi everyone



I have looked everywhere in town and I can't find a micro usb adaptor anywhere, the only one I could find was broken out of the box.



If anyone has one, free to a good home or for a couple bucks.

Define which town or location? there are hundreds of towns in New Zealand.


most of PB tech stores have at least one OTG cable in stock.

Ahhhh, the old DSE in Thames would have been the go-to place for that


Have you tried any of the phone shops?

If you're brave enough to be travelling around the district, fighting holiday traffic, & passing by Te Aroha then stop in, hit me up.

One thing about OTG adapters specifically rather than just micro USB -> USB cables, unless you're really lucky you may have to try a dozen or more to find one that works with your phone. I've got one single micro USB OTG cable that works with my thermal sensor, unfortunately it's a Chinese cheapie and I have no idea any more which source it came from or I'd get several more.

What sort of phone and whereabouts are you? I have a couple in a draw somewhere I could pull if you're nearby...

Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

If you are in Auckland by any chance you are welcome to pick one up from me for free. I can also ship it to you if you pay the $3 shipping fee though it might take a few days due to holiday season.
