Re: Looking for "thick" diameter black USB cables
You didn't mention what connectors you need.
I've never measured their thickness but http://Newegg.com
has some belkin cables spec'd to have lower gauge wiring
than many. They might even be too thick, as the diameter
you are wanting isn't especially thick, IMO. I have several
USB devices with cables about 0.19" diameter, it seems a
fairly common diameter.
However, I just measured a generic cable I have and it is
very close to 0.2". It has a black (vinyl?) covering and
the marking on it reads "28AWG/1P 24AWG/2C". It was "PCMS"
branded (in this category):
specifically the exact cable I measured is this one:
I would expect similar cables from same manufacturer except
different plugs, would be same diameter, except the ones
which are clear see-through vinyl with the visible metal
braid are thicker (including those with the LEDs that light
up at each end, plus I find those with LEDs are troublesome
and often devices won't work using them due to a (load?) the
LED driver places on the signal line).
It might be easiest to just go to a nearby store with a
ruler in hand, though local stores tend to charge an arm and
a leg for a simple USB cable, although paying shipping
online will also erase much of the cost difference if not
combined with some other parts order.
