What is this component???


I found this in my charger box and for the life of me I have no clue to what it does?? Can anyone tell me how I would use it and what program it coincides with it. Any help would be most appreciated.

Thx in advance.

That is to connect it to a PC. The temp probe is the other wire with the black tip that contains the thermocouple.

Agree that it's certainly NOT a temperature probe but rather a USB programmer/interface for an ESC, charger, etc.

Here's a thought - Plug it into a computer with an appropriate USB mini cable and see what driver pops up.

The chip on there is a usb to ttl converter. I would also go with likely ESC programmer

I have the same port adapter; I'm pretty sure it is the charger to PC USB adapter for data logging.
