Handy if you have tablets and phones with a micro usb and want to connect them to a monitor or TV

Inaccurate title. This is a Micro USB to (full size) HDMI cable. Useful if your phone supports MHL.

Is micro HDMI the same fitting as mini USB on phones? It looked slightly different when I last saw one. Heat either way at that price!

That's right my wife rang me from the town and told me about one of these so I said get it. It turned put to be HDMI to micro USB. Don't think there is even an application for one.

MHL is what you need to Google, I believe.

Micro HDMI isn't the same as Micro USB

Would have been great for Hudl's if it was Micro HDMI.

No, but devices with MHL support can output HDMI over MicroUSB.

This is why the Android world is crap, too many vendors coming up with too many weird standards.

not compatable with my Moto G

Please change the descrip to "Micro-USB to HDMI Cable".
Should work on phones which support MHL

yes slightly wrong title but hot anyway. I've been looking into these as I've just started using shoebox and this is the easiest use with it.

Some laptops feature micro hdmi and I used one to hook up a laptop to a tv so that's one application for you

Yep, quite correct,
bought one of these for use with a SJ4000 cam, as it was labelled as micro HDMI,
but it most definitely was not micro HDMI
Title really does need to be changed - unless yours really is micro HDMI

My old Sony Arc S has micro HDMI, it s different from micro USB.
I actually have it connected to my TV, and stream movies from my Nexus tablet to the phone wirelessly. The movie has to be 720p,not 1080p, the phone cant handle the higher rate.

HDMI to micro USB? what an idiot made that label?

Its only good if it can charge device otherwise is useless. Usb has nothing to do with hdmi unless device is MHL 2.0 compatible.

Wouldn't waste your time with cables from pound land! All I wanted was a 3.5mm male to 3.5mm female cable - got two, both were shocking quality and went straight in the bin!

MHL is what works over Micro USB. The easiest way to tell the cables/adapters apart is the fact that they need external power - most often from a USB source, while HDMI doesn't.

Don't waste your time buying cheap craply made cables and go to a proper cable store!!!!!!

I bought a charger cable the other tday in poundland. It didn't charge my phone at all. I wouldn't waste my money on this one.

Yes, would much rather pay over the odds for cables that only fit one manufacturers devices... until they change the format again!!!

They have sold micro hdmi to hdmi in the past. I bought one for my son's hudl a few months ago. They do sell out of these quickly though.

Totally; I bought some iPhone chargers from Poundland in the past and the soldering on the plugs (which inevitably failed) was absolutely shocking. I'm surprised they didn't destroy my phone. Never again!

can find it on the website was going print the page out so somebody else could go and get it for me

Does this work for the Galaxy S4? It supports MHL.

I thought MHL requires external power supply too, I am surprised that a passive cable like this one works with Samsung phones.

To be fair the pack does specifically say Compatible with Micro USB devices Samsung, Nokia, HTC, Blackberry mobiles and tablets.

The Z3C is Sony right? X)

Not the same 'Connection' at the non-full HDMI end ..... so no. :-)

Tablets, & Phones BOTH use a different HDMI 'Connector'? .. so what is not hunky dory with 1 Device, is more often then not gonna be applicable to another Device instead, etc?, so .....

They both have their uses still?. :-)

Which Poundland did u find these at OP? .. u never stated?, lol. :-)

I think you've misunderstood what a deal is. If you can buy something … I think you've misunderstood what a deal is. If you can buy something cheaper in one place than it is available elsewhere then that's a deal. Under your argument if a pound shop was selling, for example, Castrol GTX for £1 when it's £20 everywhere else then that wouldn't be a deal either when it clearly is.



Exactly ..... :-)
