6ft USB 2.0 One B Male to Two A Male Y-Cable

Product Description

When a standard USB cable cannot transfer enough power to operate an external device, such as a portable 2.5in hard drive, you need a USB 2.0 y-cable. Simply plug this cable's USB B end into the device, and then plug the two USB A ends into open USB ports on one PC or Mac. This cable then pulls power from both USB ports, and thus increases the output to the external drive.

The red molded hood on the auxiliary USB A connector enables the user to quickly distinguish between main and auxiliary power. Foil and braid shielding reduces EMI/RFI interference, and twisted pair construction reduces crosstalk for high speed, error-free data transfer. This cable is compatible with USB 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 specifications.

Please Note: This cable is not designed to split USB signals to multiple computers. The two USB A connectors are meant to plug into USB ports on the same computer.

      Comments about 6ft USB 2.0 One B Male to Two A Male Y-Cable:

      I bought this to use as a "Y" cable, but one end is not a full USB cable, it is only for getting power from the usb port. This is useless as a "Y" cable. Both of the Male "A" ends need to be fully USB compliant for this to be of any use. Do not buy this to use as a "Y" cable, it will not work.

        This cable is working great for me as a replacement for the much shorter one that shipped with my ultra portable gear head dvd rom drive. Cables to go was the only place I could find this cable.

                A:

                This Y cable will not work as a switch. You would need item 30505 in order to connect one USB device to 2 computers.

                No-only a single data cable and a single power cable.
