Simply push and slide open the product “core,” to access and extract two USB cables – One is a mini-USB cable, which enables users to connect or charge mobile devices like digital cameras, external hard drives or cell phones, without carrying an extra cable. The other is a standard USB cable for connecting the Core4 to your PC or Mac – so the cables go wherever it goes.
