Some pi zero hardware bits

I have been looking round Aliexpress for bits for my Pi Zero.
This works with NO mods needed, unlike the pi B version which needs HDMI bits added to the config.txt (HDMI-VGA)
This works. (Usb hub & card reader)
This works (USB 2 4 port hub)
This works (mini HDMI to normal)
This works but you need to remove the plastic shell or you can't get the power connected.
This DOES NOT WORK avoid (USB hub, OK on a PC)
These look interesting, convert a normal usb to micro usb

Interestingly, I was just looking through the latest MagPi issue and spotted those with a link to Pimoroni's offering, except Pimoroni wants £2 a piece... Shocked

Wouldn't mind a few of those, the not-£2 ones that is, the use of microUSB is getting more commonplace, that and having my Logietech Unifying thing hooked up to my Galaxy S5 phone is highly entertaining... Grin
