What type of mini usb cable is utilized?

I notice that the new Sansa Clip Zip that I bought for my wife uses a different mini usb cable than the Sansa Clip I own. What is it actually called? A micro usb?

I am looking for a spare cable for her unit as she travels and will need a separate charger.

Yes, it’s micro USB. It’s pretty much the new standard for portable electronics.

Note that you also can buy mini=>micro USB plug adapters; e.g. on eBay at around $1 shipped.  Good if you already have miniUSB cables around and don’t want to keep 2 similar-appearing cables around.

Thanks a lot. I thought that was what it is but wanted to make sure as this is my first encounter with the micro:).
