      I purchased this one to replace one I have used for several years. The old one has been walked on, sucked up in the vacuum, and tied in knots, but has always worked perfectly. It took sharp puppy teeth to finally do it in. Highly recommend.

        Comments about 5m USB 2.0 A Male to A Female Active Extension Cable (16.4ft):

        I used this cable to extend the USB functionality between a touch screen monitor and a powered USB hub. I needed to run the cable from the monitor (hanging from the ceiling) to an adjacent wall, down the wall, across the floor, and finally to the powered USB hub. This cable run allows an uncluttered installation of the monitor AND reliable performance of the USB connection.

          Connected the USB cable between my computer and the cable for my camera and the extended connection worked perfectly. Connection was about 19 feet and it worked as well as with just the camera cable.

              Q:

              Does it work with my iPad charger?

                A:

                It would not be ideal for that application. Since this is an active extension, it will not supply the full 2.1Amp needed to properly charge the iPad. It would allow it to charge but at a much slower rate.
