>USB Extension Cable
USB 2.0 active repeater with premium 5m/16ft cable
Connect any USB 2.0/1.1 device with no performance compromises
Commonly used for gaining cable length to printers, USB displays, game console controllers, etc.
Standard USB Type A male to type A female connectors
Shares available USB power between cable itself and attached device
Connect USB printers, displays, adapters, keyboards, etc. from across the room with this 5 meter / 16 foot USB 2.0 active extension cable. This cable uses the same electronics and gauge of cable as our popular 10 meter version, but stays within USB 2.0's maximum standard length of 5 meters.
No drivers required on any OS (functions as a one-port USB hub using built-in drivers). Works at full performance with all USB 2.0 and 1.1 devices. Bus powered devices which require USB 2.0's full 500mA per port (such as USB wireless adapters) may require a powered hub between cable and device, because the cable itself consumes approx 66mA out of 500mA, sharing the remainder with the attached device.
Not recommended for devices with high power consumption requirements. This cable will not charge iPads, iPods, or iPhones.
Not recommended for home theater appliances such as TVs, receivers, Blu-ray players, etc.
