(USB On The Go cable) popularly called USB OTG is a cord that enables mobile devices get access to one another. Traditionally mobile devices could only connect to a PC by USB, but USB OTG makes it possible for devices to connect directly to any electronics gadgets and computer peripherals.

And that’s not all USB OTG can do. By enabling your device to act as a USB host – that is, to be the boss of other devices that you connect to it – you can use additional hardware such as storage, keyboards or even musical instruments together with your device.


You can even connect to storage devices such as USB sticks or external hard drives with USB OTG. Using a file manager on your device, you can directly access data on an external storage device and play movies or music without having to store them on your device as my University of Ilorin friends usually used theirs. Alternatively, you can use it as a non-cloud based backup storage option for your photos, music, and other files from your smartphone.

If you fancy making music on Android, USB OTG enables you to connect devices such as MIDI keyboards and controllers, audio inputs for instruments and vocals and various controllers that can turn your phone or tablet into a serious music-making machine.

Very Simple to use

it is plug and play, no need of any set-up.

its compatible with most android phones.

Now you don’t essentially need a laptop to view what is stored in your flash or external hard-drive. you can do it “On-The-Go”.

It can works well with all Android devices WITH custom ROM/Kernel that support USB Host mode.

U didn't tell us about the very big disadvantage,
1. When usung otg, your battery power get sucked by the connected device and there is no way to connect ur charger while working with the otg as the otg data cable has taken d space meant for charging the device

I used it first, when I was using my Nokia 603. few years back. then the cable was so scarce I overpaid for it
now, it's not more than #500

Tho looking at the connection i think it is wired in a way that only the data part of the otg goes to the phone then the power part is taken care of by the charger, tho that wont make sense as it defeats the purpose of on the go... The amount of things connected are too much.. I'd rather have a bluetooth mouse, a bluetooth keyboard, Bluetooth headset then my otg cable would be strictly for a gamepad and a thumb drive

It's funny how you jump to conclusion. Buying and selling is what I do. it's business, not selling off of my personal properties.
