Nokia's Pop-Port connector (discontinued)

Sony Ericsson used a proprietary connector called FastPort from 2005 to 2009.
The second, third, and fourth generation iPod Shuffle uses a TRRS connector to carry USB, audio, or power signals.
iriver added a fifth power pin within USB-A plugs for higher power and faster charging, used for the iriver U10 series. A mini-USB version contains a matching extra power pin for the cradle.
Apple has shipped non-standard USB extension cables with some of their computers, for use with the included Apple USB keyboards. The extension cable's socket is keyed with a small protrusion to prevent the insertion of a standard USB plug, while the Apple USB keyboard's plug has a matching indentation. The indentation on the keyboard's plug does not interfere with insertion into a standard USB socket. Despite the keying, it is still possible to insert standard USB plugs into the extension cord. The protrusion can also be shaved off with an appropriate blade, or crushed with locking pliers.
Apple also uses a proprietary USB 30-pin dock connector on its iPods, iPhones, and the iPad.
HP Tablet computers use non-standard connectors to transmit the USB signals between the keyboard/mouse unit and the Computer Tablet Unit.

Some digital cameras have their own USB connectors, like the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT2.
The Army's Land Warrior system uses standard USB signalling with 15.6 V power using a rugedized Glenair connector.
