Suitable Longer Cable for Official Keyboard?

Wed Jun 26, 2019 9:32 pm

I've just purchased the 4 B, along with the official keyboard and mouse.

I like the keyboard, however, I am finding the cable is a little too short for my requirements and, none of my spare micro usb cables appear to be suitable (ie. It refuses to function).

So, is there a specific type of cable out there that I can purchase that will work? I presume the integrated usb hub probably necessitates a cable with special sauce?

Thanking you in anticiaption :)

Ok, so the cables I have laying around the place must be pretty dire!

I ended up chancing with these and they work just great and they suit the colour scheme!

Watch out for "charging cables". I have one here and there are no DATA wires in it. All it has is the +5V and ground wires. I forget what device it came with. Luckily it has a sticker on it telling me its only for charging. ;)
