Hi all. I'm looking for a short (approx 6 inch) usb cable to charge my HTC desire in the car. So it needs to be a normal type A to a micro cable. Ideally the normal end and the micro would be right angled, if it's only the normal end that would be ok. I've attached a rough diagram to show what I am thinking of. I've not been able to find what I want. I'm almost resigned to compromising but I thought I may have a try here first. Anyone seen anything like it?

Thanks

Love the diagram. Until I saw that I didn't know what a normal or micro USB looked like.

I've seen that one and it's not the one I described. None of the connectors (especially the normal connector) are right angled with the cable coming from the side.

Ah my apologies; I have one like that from my old rechargable mouse.

You'll probably have to buy a Male to Female right angled adaptor or swivel adaptor and just add it to your cable. It's not ideal but you don't really get right-angled USB A's on cables.
