    Fire Stick 4k

    I have an Amazon fire stick 4k. I want to add more storage and also use a bluetooth wireless mini keyboard with the fire stick. What type of cable do I need to accomplish those 2 things I want to do with the stick?

    That device only has an HDMI connector for plugging it into an HDMI port and a micro-USB power connector.

    To connect a Bluetooth keyboard:

    (Note: the II may be an ll if that link does not work.)

    Increase storage:

    JDC2000, I was looking for the type of cable that I need to connect 2 usb devices (usb drive and bluetooth wireless keyboard). The cable in the increase storage link would only be able to connect 1 usb device?

    To add a USB flash drive, you'd need a Micro USB Host OTG Cable. You can just search Amazon for "Micro USB Host OTG Cable". Just double check the comments to verify that it works with a FireTV stick.
    Just one example:
    https://www.amazon.com/AuviPal-Micro...9840672&sr=8-3
    Note that the FireTV Stick can only read FAT32, not NTFS or exFAT drives.

    For Bluetooth, you should be able to pair the keyboard. It should be similar to pairing Bluetooth headphones. You'll have to look at your keyboard instructions on how to put it into pairing mode.

    Why would you need another USB port for the Bluetooth keyboard? If you really need another USB port, you'd need to get a USB hub.

    Midknyte, for the keyboard, it says "Bluetooth Connection 【 NOT INCLUDED BLUETOOTH DONGLE 】". I suppose that means that it does not require a dongle to communicate with the keyboard?

    Would any brand micros USB hub OTG cable be fine such as the one in link below or are some brands better than others?

    Yes, you would use Bluetooth. I already posted the link of how to pair BT devices.

    I can't really comment about specific brands, because there are so many out there. That's why I said to look in the comments to see if it works with FireTV4K.
