The 6-foot USB A to Mini-B 5-pin cable is an accessory or replacement item for the Compact LCD and the Magstripe LCD signature pads. These pads each ship with original cables in the box so you do not need to purchase a cable when purchasing a pad. The Compact LCD ships standard with a 3-foot USB cable, so you
may want to consider purchasing this item if you need a longer 6-foot cable. The Magstripe LCD ships standard with a 6-foot USB cable.
