Beside our professional cameras, most of us photographers also have a smartphone or a tablet. One convenient way to access photos on the device is by using this USB OTG (On-The-Go) cable. With the OTG cable, we can then connect it a USB flash drive or our digital camera. There are OTG cables available for Android and iPhone users. Typically, there are two connectors on both ends. The one connector is a USB ‘A’ female connector port, which you can use to plug in another storage device like the USB flash drive. The other end of the connector is either a Micro USB ‘B’ male connector or a Micro-USB to 8-pin Lightning adapter.
The USB OTG cable is cheap, yet it’s very useful in most situation. In this review, I’m going to list down the best USB OTG cables you can buy.
