The DIY Color-Coated Detachable USB Cable Kit contains all the pieces you need to assemble your own custom detachable USB cable, including a color-coated GX16 detachable connector (color availability will vary). Why in heck would you want to assemble your own detachable USB cable? Cuz, it’s fun. And it’s cheaper!
All DIY Color-Coated Detachable USB Cable Kits include:
28 AWG, four-core shielded cable, cut to length
Two (2) USB connectors
One (1) 5-pin color-coated GX16 detachable connector
Pick whatever connectors and cord colors you want! You can also add double-sleeving material and solder if you prefer (additional costs apply).
Please note: These kits come unassembled and you’ll need your own tools to assemble the cable. And if you didn’t add solder to your DIY Kit order, you’ll need to supply your own solder. These are not “No Solder” kits. They are “Solder” kits. You will need solder. And if you burn yourself, that’s on you.
Additionally, in the event that the mis-assembly of a DIY cable causes damage to any device or PC it is plugged into, Zap will not be held responsible. If you are unclear about assembly or have any questions about the DIY Kit, feel free to shoot us an email first or ask around in our Discord.
