Just add this extension cable for an extra 3.3 feet of convenience.

The cable features a Male A connector on one end and a Female A connector on the other. Typically, the Male A connector plugs into your computer and the Female A connects to the cable you need extended. Check your device manuals to make sure this is the connector you need.

I ordered a pair of these to extend the USB connections from my PC to my keyboard and mouse and for that they work great.

This cable did exactly what I needed it to-- extend my iPhone cord so I can charge it while lying in bed!

Please be aware that this is NOT a longer USB cable. It is an extension cable with 'Type A' connectors at BOTH ends (male and female) - meaning that this cable will NOT connect 2 devices by itself. It will only work with and extend a 'regular' USB cable that has a 'Type A' male connector at one end. 'Type A' is the type of connector that would normally plug into your computer or laptop USB port.

These being said, I found it quite useful with peripherals that come with permanently attached cables that are not as long as I wish they were. I am using mine with a Logitech Driving Force GT Racing Wheel and with a T-flight Hostas joystick on which we can use a longer cable.

There's not much to say other than everything is done right, including the price. It is USB 2.0 certified and connectors at both ends appear to be gold-plated and solidly built. This is important because, unlike a HDMI cable that you usually plug it in at the back of your equipment and it's likely to stay there, USB cables tend to be plugged in and out many times and this is even more so the case with an extension cable.

While USB cables are clearly a commodity item these days, AmazonBasics cables do have a couple of advantages over the competition.

- EASY RETURN - I know because I had to return quite a few items for various reasons. Amazon makes it very easy and, if you are returning the item because it came defective or damaged Amazon pays for shipping.

- WARRANTY - these wires come with a 1-year warranty.I am highly confident that Amazon will be around to honor its warranty and I'm not so sure about vendors I know less.

- QUALITY ASSURANCE - I've never had any problems with 'cheap' USB or HDMI cables but it may be reassuring to have Amazon's name on a wire.

Put it atop your desk and no longer have to duck underneath into the dusty morass full of transformers and cables and crap to stick something into your PC's USB port. No more banged heads on underside of desktop.

Just stick this baby into USB, place it of duct tape it to the top of your desk, and voila--sync your iPod, use your flash drive, and place media files from your camera all right there in front of you

Worth it's weight in ice packs for the bruised rear of your squash.

amazon basics did not skimp out at all on this product. nice heavier gauge wire. quality USB connectors with strong plastic housings. i thought the amazon basics logo and it's placement was actually nice. made it seem like some thought went into how this private brand would be marketed.

i would buy amazon basics again,

I ordered this product because I needed an extension cable for my keyboard so it would reach to the pull out tray on my desk. Every physical store I looked for a suitable cable had the item, but at twice the length and FIVE TIMES the cost. I didn't want to spend close to $30 so I checked out Amazon, and very happy I did. This is the perfect length, connecting my keyboard and desktop without dragging on the ground (an important point, since my cat likes to chew cables and cords); and also a great price! No problems with it as of yet so I'm very pleased.

This cable transfers power to my HTC EVO, but my Windows 7 computer doesn't recognize the phone as a Removable Disk. Works fine without the extension.

The AmazonBasics USB 2.0 A-Male to A-Female Extension Cable in it's 3.3 foot (1.0 Meter) length is an excellent, no-nonsense product and one worthy of the AmazonBasics name that many of us have grown to rely upon. Right out of the package, it does exactly what is expected.

Likes:

+ Supports the 480-Mbps communication speed of the USB 2.0 standard
+ A-male to A-female extension cable; adds additional connectivity between devices
+ Gold-plated connectors; long-term connector reliability
+ AmazonBasics 1-year limited warranty; no-hassle returns if defective

Before we go any further, it's probably best to clarify what this cord is, and what it isn't. The best way to explain this would be to use a lamp or other household electrical device as an example. If you have a lamp and find that it's too far from a wall socket to plug in, you don't need to rewire the lamp. It's far easier (and more economical) to just get an electrical extension cord, plug the lamp into the extension cord's female receptacle and plug the extension cord into that wall outlet. It's that simple.

This USB 2.0 A-male to A-female extension cable works the same way. It extends the reach of a USB 2.0 device between the computer, for example, and the peripheral; nothing more and nothing less. For instance, if you have a USB 2.0 accessory that is too far from the computer, this cable will act in the same fashion as the extension cord on that lamp.

Have had the occasion to buy a few different AmazonBasics cables since the brand was introduced, and in each case, the product has performed exactly as the product specifications indicated.
