    I'm looking for a couple of USB to Micro USB Cables. Would really like to find them with a 90 degree corner at the micro part so the cable runs down the side of the Droid instead of sticking straight out.

    Igo parts are sold at Rat Shack. They have a micro to micro 90 degree tip (female to male). So in a pinch they would work but I'd have one more piece to lose!

    As for the Igo cables, they're about 10" long. Worthless unless charging at your desktop. I want a 3~4 footer for the car and another for the office.

    I found them online, was hoping for local retail like a national chain.

    Not to be a Smart Aleck, but Google is REALLY my friend, for making this phone (with Verizon)

    Hey flomaster, that site's pretty awesome but 13 bucks for a five inch cable? All the ones I've found on other sites only have 'left' angle cables, have you guys seen a cheaper 'right' angle cable?

    You can up the size, if you don't want the 5 inch one (and up the price too). I'm planning on buying a couple of the 6 foot ones.

    I'd certainly be interested in them for a lower price. Wish monoprice.com carried them - 3-5 bucks would be their price.. cuskit

    Perhaps we can all send Mono-price an email asking them to carry this style cable.

    Hey, all! First post on the forums. I came across this post in my search for the same "angled" micro USB cable. Ideally, I'm looking for one with a "Droid-right" bend so it would be convenient for both the car mount and the homemade travel stand I plan on making out of a paper clip (modeled off of Dean and Ying's Blog - iPhone Paper Clip Mount).

    While the following Amazon product is listed as "right angle" (which it seems it might be by "normal" USB standards), for us Droid owners this means left angle. One buyer uploaded an image of the bitter end in protest.

    Still, this one seems to fit the bill (two buyer reviews are satisfied with the cable itself which looks like it also charges, and there is a relevant review from a Droid owner).
    I think $10.15 is still steep, but until more manufacturers start looking to the innovative (not to mention lucrative) product ideas suggested on these forums, we beggars can't be choosers! :)

    AMAZON.COM - Startech.com 3FT Right Angle Micro USB Cable



    Cheers!

    Thank you, Tomoid!

    Definitely a much better deal for the length and price, and thankfully your post caught me before I'd gone to the Amazon shopping cart. Still, this is a left angle cable by Droid standards. I'm next going to try reverse psychology on Google and search for "left angle micro usb" in order to find a "Droid-right" cable. :)

    Thanks for the follow-up!

    Cheers,

    Yesterday I ordered one of the cables from Buy.com. I just did a close up view of the micro end and see it looks like a left angle they have pictured.
    From other places I have looked it seems we need a "right" angled plug.
    So I will know next week how this one will work out for me.
