"Wireless" USB cable

I have a device that I connect via a microUSB/USB cable to the PC. I'd like it to be wireless, so I'd basically connect a battery pack to the device and a USB dongle to the PC, like it works with wireless mice.

Is there a possibility to do this?


If not, than alternatively I'd settle for a microUSB cable that is REALLY soft, so that you wouldn't feel the drag of it. Any specific recommendations I'd appreciate.

As an alternative mouse cable, search for "ceesa mouse cable" online and see what you can find. It's cables without shielding and without rubber around them, instead it's built out of a thin paracord rope where the inside is removed and replaced by the handful wires needed for USB data. You should be able to find posts with instructions on how to build that kind of paracord cable yourself, but there's also a link somewhere to order them from Mr. CeeSa. He will build them with the connectors you like to have on it. Those paracord style cables are the softest, lightest cable that are possible. They are really close to a wireless feel, might perhaps actually be better because there's no battery needed so it's saving weight.

Thanks. I will look into that.
