    I have this unit I'm trying to get a replacement adapter for - does anyone know what this is?

    It looks somewhat like a USB Printer cable connector, but it's considerably smaller:

    Any help would be appreciated -

    Unfortunately Micro B isn't accurate -

    Make? Model?

    Could be a manufacturers proprietary part - underhand means of tying you to purchasing their eye-wateringly priced replacements.

    When I come across such methods I tend to refit 'standard' plugs and sockets in place of them - but I'm the original skinflint :D

    It's kind of a silly item but it works - it's made by "Power A" and is a PS4 controller charger.

    I'd be up for opening it up and fitting it with a standard USB if it is a proprietary thing - that hadn't really occurred to me -
