Not only are these great for privacy and security concerns, they’re also good for use with devices that automatically sync when you plug them into a computer. With the data lines off, you can use them while they charge. These are the most useful thing you never knew you needed!
They’re super easy to use. The USB Extension Cable with Data/Charge Sync Switch comes with a USB A socket on one end and a USB A plug on the other. The USB Micro B Cable with Data/Charge Sync Switch comes with a micro-B USB connector on one end and a USB A plug on the other. In between each is an in-line switch that you can set to either “Data” or “Charger”. When Data is set, both D+ and D- data lines pass through. When Charger is set, they are both disconnected.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
