simplycam - USB connector size

The USB cable that comes with Simply Cam is too long for me. Does anybody know what is the connector type for the camera side of the USB cable?

It's a USB Micro connector. You can find confirmation here if you want an "official" link:

Edit: Why not just coil the cable instead of buying a new one? It won't hurt anything to do so.

@worthing​  - it is coiled now but I need to plug in 2 cameras in one outlet and the outlet has a plastic cover or box and both cables rolled up will not fit in the outdoor outlet box / cover. 

I found a 16" USB cable with mini USB on one side on Amazon and will be testing when it arrives.
