#83920 Hi, I have bought Nodemcu development board. But it didn't have any USB cable with it. What type of USB cable is required? Can I use USB cable which are used to connect smartphone to laptop?Will the current and voltage requirements be satisfied?

#83934 Yes you can.

Out of interest some mini cables for connecting Arduino products are just a power cables.

You need a micro and I assume if it is specified for a phone it should transmit data as well.
