Mini USB

A standard type of USB connector, often found on phones and other mobile devices, for connecting those devices to chargers, computers, TVs, cars, and more.

Most phones use it for charging the battery, and also support one or more types of data connection via the same port.

The small USB socket found on digital cameras, external hard drives, USB hubs and other equipment. Mini USB is much smaller than USB Type A and B but twice as thick as Micro USB (see illustration below). Mini USB and all other USB connectors are expected to be superseded by USB Type C.
