I have a product with a USB-A plug that can open to reveal a Micro-B plug:

enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

Any idea how or where to find such a thing? I tried searching Mouser and Digi-Key but don't see anything like it. (Actually, I would like to find a USB-A/Type-C hybrid, if such a thing is even possible mechanically, to avoid including illegal C-to-A adapters with products.)

    \$\begingroup\$ If it's for a product and you can order a few thousand of them you might want to simply contact the brand that made that cable. A digikey rep might be able to help too. I've had them help looking stuff up even for my small orders. They clearly aren't common though. Where did you find the original? \$\endgroup\$ – K H Feb 3 at 3:04

    \$\begingroup\$ @endolith Note to self: next time I want to ask about a part I cannot find, put it as "what part number is this?" and tag identification :) \$\endgroup\$ – Dmitry Grigoryev Feb 8 at 10:22

Not a flip but a slide noname combo USB connector: enter image description here The SilverStone CPU02 cable with a flip combo USB connector: enter image description here

One OEM for these kinds of plug is Rego (thanks to @endolith for finding that).

  • \$\begingroup\$ How did you find these?? I really want one with an A plug and C plug, but I don't know if that is possible mechanically. It might short out VBUS to GND \$\endgroup\$ – endolith Feb 4 at 14:35
