What USB adapter do I need for this internal SSD?

The SSD is from a Microsoft Surface Pro, it's an sk hynix 256gb. This is what it looks like.

I bought an msata 1.8" adapter and it won't fit, the one I purchased specifically is:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075R5975G/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Please tell me one that will fit correctly, right now I am looking at this:
https://www.amazon.com/QNINE-Adapter-Converter-Portable-External/dp/B01MDJ2M9Z

I have counted the pins, and it seems there are 8 and then 18 on the part I'm looking to buy, which matches exactly the number of pins on the SSD I have, so I'm assuming it will work? The other adapter was 7+9 pin.

Will that work? Any cheaper ones you can recommend? Thanks!

No, the one you bought before was "micro sata", for a 1.8" size drive.
Not an mSATA drive.

Slightly different.

Yes, but you see I already bought an MSATA cable, the third link in my original post.

Are you sure the other one I linked will work? Because apparently something needs to be different besides just being MSATA, because the one I bought simply doesn't fit.

Ohh, I see, I was assuming mSATA meant microSATA, but now after reading the wikipedia article you linked, I see it means miniSATA.

Thank you very much for the info!
