This is a 1.5m long cable with a full size USB A plug on one end and a micro plug on the other.
The micro format comes in addition to the full size and mini formats. It's smaller (as per the name) than any other USB connector so far and has an asynchronous insertion force - basically, it's easier to push into the socket than pull out. This makes is mechanically very secure, and stops accidental disconnections - perfect for equipment which needs charging.
There's no coincidence that this type of connector is now the world-wide accepted format for mobile phone chargers. It's also used on the Netduino and one or two other bit sof kit we stock
