Note - this is micro-USB, not USB-C (but we do well a USB-C version here).
The cable removes the need to pull the Micro-USB connector out of your Raspberry Pi (or mess around with sockets/plugs) every time you want to power up/down.
To turn your Raspberry Pi back on again, just click the switch - simple! The switch has a nice rubber feel and a solid 'click-on-click-off' action and includes a little red LED power indicator.
Please Note: This is designed and tested for the Raspberry Pi Zero and Raspberry Pi 3/3A+ using an official Raspberry Pi Zero/3 power supply. It may not work well with smartphones or other Micro-USB chargers/power supplies.
The cable is Micro-USB female one end and Micro-USB the other, meaning you can continue to use your Official Raspberry Pi Power Supply with the added benefit of a power switch.
The entire cable (including connectors) is just ~31cm long so it's never far from your Raspberry Pi.
This cable does not transfer data so it's mostly just good for powering and charging devices, but adding an on/off switch to your power supply is a nice addition and one that we absolutely love clicking!
