Moves USB ports where you want them

USB ports on your computer, TV, external hard drive, and other devices can be hard to reach. This extension cable brings the port to you. When the USB cable you’re using to connect two devices together is just too short, this extension cable gives you the length you need. It works great for connecting flash drives and flip-out USB drives you see on some camcorders.

No more climbing under the desk

If you’ve ever had to crawl on hands and knees to try to access USB ports behind your computer, you need this extension cable. Now the USB port can come to you.

Durable - made for lots of connections

We know that USB devices get plugged in and unplugged many, many times. Because of this fact, the extension cable has gold-plated connectors that protect the cable and the connectors. Plus, the gold-plating protects against noise from electromagnetic and radio-frequency signals, keeping your signal clear with less loss of bandwidth. The AmazonBasics USB 3.0 Extension Cable supports the full USB 3.0 standard with up to 625-Mbps transmission speed, so you can take advantage of the full performance of your peripherals and devices.

How it works
  • Plug the male end of the cable into the USB port on your device (like your computer).
  • Now you can plug in a USB cable from a device (like a camera) into the female end of the extension cord instead of the USB port.
Extra things to know
  • Remember, this is an extension cable, not a USB cable. Just like you’d plug a lamp cord into an electrical extension cord, this is the same principal. You’ll be plugging in a device with an existing USB cable into this cable, and then this cable connects to the device with the USB port.
Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging

This AmazonBasics product features Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging that is recyclable.

This is a well made, sturdy, albeit somewhat thick cable.

I bought it so that I could extend both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 cables. I.E., you can plug this cable into a USB 2.0 port on a computer and attach a USB 2.0 device or cable to the other end and it will work fine.

To be clear: you can attach a USB 2.0 phone cable to this extension cord, plug it into a USB 2.0 port on your PC and you will be able to both charge your phone and transfer data to and from it (at USB 2.0 speeds).

You can, of course, also plug this cable into a USB 3.0 port on a computer and plug a USB 3.0 device or cable into the other end and it will work fine.

Posting this info since some other reviewers were questioning this. The USB 3.0 standard is designed to be backwards compatible with USB 2.0 (and even USB 1.1).

The USB 3.0 connector is designed so that the extra pins needed for USB 3.0 are recessed, and they won't be used if the cable is plugged into a USB 2.0 port.

USB 3.0 is a superset of USB 2.0, so why not purchase an extension cable that will serve both types of devices and ports?

Size Name: 9.8 Feet/3.0 Meters Verified Purchase
I purchased this for an external USB 3 JBOD enclosure I will need for my PC.

At the moment, I haven't received the JBOD enclosure, but I tested this cable with an Intel X25-V 40GB SSD in a MSI Coolmax HD-250TN-U3 USB 3 enclosure using a PCIe x1 Renesas 2-Port (EVGA EU30) card and saw HD Tune 2.55 return the following stats for a 4MB Block Size:
Transfer Rate:
Min: 134.6 MB/sec
Max: 149.2 MB/sec
Average 144.5 MB/sec
Access Time: 0.1 ms
Burst Rate: 73.6 MB/sec

This was with the SSD having 12.2 GB free of 37.2 GB.

When the SSD/enclosure was attached directly to the EU30 without using the extension cable, I saw the following results:
Transfer Rate:
Min: 138.0 MB/sec
Max: 149.4 MB/sec
Average 144.2 MB/sec
Access Time: 0.1 ms
Burst Rate: 74.5 MB/sec

My conclusion: No real speed loss when using the extension cable.

Other observations: The cable is nice and thick; the male/female ends feel strong and unlikely to break even with thousands of insertions/removal

UPDATE: When I used the extension cable with the NST-640SU3-BK enclosure, the disks would appear and disappear in Windows. Removing the cable fixed the issue.

Size Name: 9.8 Feet/3.0 Meters Verified Purchase
This is a topnotch cable. Very good quality. Be aware, while usb 3.0 devices are usually backwards compatible you are not going to be able to buy this cord and connect it to a USB 2.0 port and have it work. I have had experience first hand with this happening to people and want to get this message out to who ever I can and maybe save someone the cost. But other then that one foot note, this item is excellent and the seller was right on the ball and got it out asap. If you need one I would go for it. I will come back to this seller in the future when I need these. Enjoy and God Bless.

I was having a problem with synchronizing 2 usb 3.0 drives to where only 1 file would copy and then nothing else would happen. I had rebooted 4 times and it would still only copy one file. I replaced this cable with Cable Matters SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Type A Male to Female Extension Cable in Blue 10 Feet and the problem has been corrected.

Let's keep this simple. Don't worry about "why" it works like this, just know that it does.

* USB 3.0 is up to 10x faster than USB 2.0.
* You'll use this cord to make a product you already have reach further away from your computer's tower or laptop. It can help you connect with the printer on your file cabinet or allow you to walk around the room with your webcam.
* By lengthening the distance the signal must travel from your device to your computer, you will lose a small percentage of efficiency (up to 5%).
* You "must" use this product in a 3.0 port. Do "not" put it in a 2.0 port.
* You "can" plug 2.0 items into the receptive end of the cable. Only older flash drives and scanners/cameras will pose compatibility problems.
* This cable has sturdy construction and will last for years.

What does "A Male" and "A Female" mean?

The label of "A" in computer cables is the name for full-size traditional USB plugs; "B" is the label for minis, such as goes into a cell phone.

"Male" refers to the pointy end of a cord that plugs into something else. "Female" is the hollow end that surrounds the "male" end of another cord. All the ports on your computer in which you insert cords are female adapters. A flash drive is an example of a male adapter.

Nothing really special here. The cord feels like a good weight and is the length listed. Works great and seems like it will hold up well.

Size Name: 6.5 feet/2.0 meters Verified Purchase
I recently bought a USB 3.0 Hub http://www.amazon.com/HT-UH008-Bus-Powered-Detachable-Charging-Strip-Shaped/dp/B00ECTYKWO/ref=cm_cr-mr-title which had a very short USB 3.0 cord. I added this extension cord to my hub, and everything worked as if my hub were directly connected to my desktop. The build quality of the cord is thick, and so far doesn't have any issues. Overall, I would buy this cord again if I needed another one.

Pros:
+ Doesn't interfere with being connected to my USB hub.
+ Thick cord, not flimsy.

Cons:
- None, does everything I need it to.
