Where to buy parts to make custom usb cables
« on: Fri, 16 November 2018, 12:49:38 »
Hi all! As the title says, I want to get into custom USB cable making and I'm trying to research places where one can buy parts.

So far my search has turned very little results, as many listings on Aliexpress and Banggood are not good enough.
I just wanted to ask the community if they knew of any sites or vendors that might sell bulk USB cable and connectors.

Thank you all!

Checkout Zap Cables and 1up Keyboards. They're usually where I get my USB Parts from. If in a pinch, you can always try eBay or Amazon.

I used to make cables. Have a lot of unused parts. Send me PM if you would like to buy some USB connectors, Techflex sleeving, heatshrinks and cable. At very reasonable price of course.  ;)
