Meenova USB 3.1 Type-C to MicroUSB 2.0 OTG Adapter

Meenova USB 3.1 Type-C to MicroUSB 2.0 OTG AdapterI’d mentioned before that you don’t have to sacrifice your Micro USB cables or USB OTG devices when upgrading to a phone with USB C connectors, but the last batch of adapters I got failed to work with my FLIR One, meaning I was out one expensive tech toy that I actually use (ok, I didn’t buy it, but I did bring it back from CES 2016 and used it quite a bit).

On the advice of FLIR One I ended up purchasing a pair of Meenova USB 3.1 Type-C to MicroUSB 2.0 adapters and can report at this point that I have not found anything they don’t properly do. My USB OTG devices work properly, I can charge using my car charger, and overall other than the problematic detail of them being so small I have to keep them away from a baby, they do what I wanted.

The price tag on them is a little higher than I’d hope for for a half inch hunk of plastic and metal, but they work, feel solid, don’t fall out of the USB C or drop the Micro USB, and that’s about as much as I can write about an adapter.

Evidently, much like my HTC 10, the adapter is not truly spec compliant so you might want to be aware that it’s mentioned in a review on Amazon that charging through this thing isn’t recommended by Google’s Benson Leung. That said, Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 violates the USB C spec as well as a few other things that we’re all doing now, so take that as you will.

Having charged and USB OTGd spec-uncompliant with no issues I’m a madman teetering on the brink.

What’s also cool is finally for once on the HTC brand I can plug in the FLIR camera the right way without having to use an extension cord and turn it around.

They’re running $9.99 at the moment on Amazon, have a 5 star rating, and for once I don’t really doubt the ratings. This is about as good as you can make this product.
