Most consumer electronics devices will not work with our USB adapters. We currently sell two USB adapters for Vernier and Texas Instruments products.
Easy to Go! Adapter (MINI-USB)
This adapter is to allow the EasyTemp or EasyLink to connect to a computer for use with Vernier software, such as Graphical Analysis 4, or Texas Instruments software, such as TI-84 SmartView or TI-Nspire computer software . It has a USB Mini-A receptacle and a USB Standard-A plug.
Most consumer devices will not work with our adapters because they generally use USB Mini-B. A USB Mini-B plug does not work with a USB Mini-A receptacle and a USB Mini-A plug does not work with a USB Mini-B receptacle.
The USB “standard” is unfortunately confusing with two types of mini plugs. One more consideration is that there is a special type of USB mini receptacle, which is a USB Mini-AB, which is a mini receptacle that can accept USB Mini-A and USB Mini-B plugs.
