Default Micro / mini USB adapter

So I am looking for and adapter to fit the micro/mini slot on my tablet. The reason being that when my tablet is in the keyboard folio case, I lose access to the one full sized USB port this device offers. I know that when I connect the OEM cable to my Pc I can transfer files Willy nilly and plug in my flash drive. However what I would really like is to have a full sized port available to me on the road when I have the tablet in the keyboard folio case. I did of course check Lenovo.com to see what accessories they had available, they don't have what I am looking for.

I do have a cable that goes to the I want and will allow me to plug in a flash drive. But it is 6 feet long. Hardly portable.

So if anyone has any ideas or recommendations, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks.

Thanks. Not sure if I like the idea of a dongle like that adding weight + flash drive to the port. I did find this one though:

Hey Temetka, you told about the Adapter here. I bought one from ebay, but my TPT does not recognize any device on that micro USB Port, I'm a little bit frustrated, is it that cable defective or TPT really does not support USB Host on micro USB Port?

Have you got Folio and a Hard Drive working simultaniously at the same time?
