Example of previous generation USB connector brain-damage.
  • A single USB-A connector couldn't draw enough power, so they added a second USB-A on a Y cable to get extra power.
  • The Micro-B connector didn't have enough space for the extra pins for USB 3.0 speeds, so they added a kludge to the side of the Micro-B making this "micro" connector freaking huge.
