I can confirm that usb mice work but your mileage may vary. I had ome usb mouse which draws little power that worked no issues. My other mouse which draws more power didn't.

Haven't been able to get my pen drive to work in it. Not that big of a deal now days cloud storage is the key :).

I'll test a keyboard when I find the time to dig one out and let you know the results.

I picked up an OTG cable on Amazon for £0.80, plugged in my wireless mouse and the cursor popped right up on screen. Haven't tried anything else yet, but even if its the only thing that works it was well worth 80p lol

Noticed that while connected, if I used the mouse in standby mode the screen woke. Maybe a way to avoid battering the Power button? Although will need to test after its been in standby for 30+mins

Edited out "pooped" for "popped" :)

By the way, left it plugged in and waited 1hr10m then used the mouse. It woke the phone up, so definitely seems like a viable alternate to using power button.

Hi guys, Came across this thread while looking for how to connect an external keyboard to an Oange San Diego. Can DavidSimonH tell me what cable he bought from Amazon please. Also is it possible to get both a mouse and keyboard attached and, if so, how ? Thanks, Steve

Pretty sure any cable would work, there's only 4 connections in there.

Sorry for the late response gbjbasdw, haven't been on the forum for a while. I bought my cable from this listing, the seller I used is no longer selling the cables (and I just got a straight cable not a right angled one as pictured). As BlueMoonRising said, any cable should be fine if you get from a "OTG" listing.

Guys - just a quick update on my very positive experience. I bought a 99p cable off eBay and it arrived today. I first tried a Logitech laser mouse and that worked great. The mouse pointer appeared on the Orange San Diego phone screen and I can use the scroll wheel as well as the left/right mouse buttons. Then I tried plugging in the generic USB Chinese keyboard that came with my generic Chinese Android tablet. This seems to be working quite well in some apps but it's not too clever in my text messaging native app. I then attached a small USB 4 port hub and plugging in both the mouse and the keyboard and happily both seem to work just fine. Many thanks to the folk in this thread and your kind responses. Steve

Is it an unpowered hub? If so what's the power drain on the phone battery like?

Yes it is a unpowered hub. Can't really comment on power drain as I haven't used it enough to form an opinion.
