I am wanting to splice a new usb head to a piece of equipment (a AT&T MObley). The original head is toast. Are all USB heads the same?

I have a Mobley but not a clear understanding on your project effort. My USB receptacle is still okay after many years of seldom use.

My Mobley usb connector, at the head, is broken, wires torn out. I want to get a new usb head head and replace old by connecting wires from new head to usb wires from Mobley adapter

As far as I know the Mobley is meant to plug into an OBDB2 connector which is not USB. Are you talking about an adapter cable?

There is a door and behind it is USB micro on my Mobley. I have never used it.

I wish I had bought two instead of one of those Mobley Adapter cables for USB and/or 120 AC use. If still available I may buy the one in Moderator's photo. Just ordered it. Thanks

If you read through that thread it says that power can not be applied using the micro USB socket. You need an adapter like the one 1492 posted.

I think the OP wants to avoid a new adapter just because the plug is worn out. I would think he could look in a drawer for any vintage USB cable and cut it and splice it onto his old one. Cover it with a little shrink wrap and it'll be good to go. This link has a nice explanation of the different USB types.
