This extension cable actively buffers the incoming and outgoing signals to ensure compliance with USB's 2.0 specification for electrical and timing minimums. You can connect up to 4 active extension cables end-to-end to achieve up to 65 feet total extension! Both low and high speed USB devices will function equally well with this extension.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superfish from Usual Superb Product and ServiceI 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by B from Active USB CableConnected 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Senior Programmer from Active Extension Cable WorksI bought the extension cable to connect a Canon MF6550 Multifunction because I needed a cable longer than the standard USB 2.0 5 Meter maximum. The Canon driver would not install until I worked with Canon Tech Support who suggested using a 6 foot USB cable to connect the system to the Multifunction. Once the driver was installed I connected the system to the Multifunction using a combination of the extension cable and a standard 1M USB 2.0 printer cable. This cable combination has been and is being used successfully with text recognition, scanning and printing applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Midwesterner from Extends USB distance limitI have two USB-connected printers that are too far from the hub to work properly. These cables perfectly address that problem. If you have that situation, I highly recommend this solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Madman from Excellent cable.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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doug the SmartBoard Expert from Solid ChoiceProduct is being used to extend the length of the USB cable supplied with a SmartBoard. It must be an active connection in order to extend the length. Cable works as expected and comes with a lifetime warranty. I had to use the warranty on one cable and the company stood behind the warranty. No complaints so far.
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.
