Which OTG cable for the YOGA Book Android ?

2017-02-19, 6:49 AM

Hello 

 

I'd like to use an OTG cable with my Yoga book android. 

 

The main purpose is to connect it to a MIDI music keyboard through a MIDI to USB cable.

But I could also be interested in connecting external USB drives.

 

I've read that cheap OTG cables are sometimes not fully compatible or functional 

 

Is the Yoga Book fully OTG compatible ?

Which OTG cable brand and reference is known to work with the Yoga book ?

I couldn't find such lenovo genuine cable in the shop for this device.

 

Thank you

Hi yodelaye,

 

Thanks for posting!

 

I don't believe there should be issues using an OTG cable on the Yoga Book. A user reported on this site that it is compatible and they used this OTG cable to do so, but I'd imagine most cables would suffice. Although having said that, according to this site, USB OTG is not compatible, but how trustworthy that is is unknown.

 

I'd like to see if anyone with the Yoga Book has had a good experience with certain OTG cables though.

Hello 

 

just a feedback after having bought the 2 cables :

> OTG cable does work (its the one you linked above) : Delock Kabel Micro USB Typ-B Stecker gewinkelt - USB 2.0-A Buchse OTG 11 cm

> Roland UM-ONE mk2 USB MIDI Interface does work by me too

 

Both successfully tested with the apps USB MIDI Monitor from the play store

 

Thanks
