This 18" USB cable is used to charge and tether your Sprint, Verizon, Datajack, or Virgin Mobile MiFi. Not all USB cables are capable of both charging AND syncing data at the same time - this cable is! This is the original 18" cable that is included with the Verizon Novatel MiFi 2200.
This cable has been tested and confirmed to charge AND tether the MiFi at the same time.
This cable can also be used to charge/sync other phones with Micro USB connections, such as the Blackberry Storm, LG Dare, LG Lotus, and many more.
This is a charge AND sync cable. If you are looking for a CHARGE-ONLY cable (for example, if you want to be able to charge your MiFi via your computer without disabling the WiFi), you will want the retractable charge-only USB cable. Since the MiFi 4510L and 4082 cannot be tethered to a computer, users of those MiFis will also need the retractable charge-only USB cable.
