Shopping List: USB A-to-Mini-B Cables

You might experience problems with the white USB A-to-Mini-B cables from Modern Robotics. For these and many other cables, I recommend purchasing from Monoprice. In general you should use the shortest cable that works, so 1.5ft is a good choice for connecting the Core Power Distribution Module to the other Core Control modules. If you order black cables, you’ll never get them confused with the ones supplied by Modern Robotics.
