It's a 10m USB cable! But it isn't perfect
on December 6, 2010
First off, this is a LONG cable. 32ft/10m, whatever system you use, this is a nice long cable. By all accounts, it's a self-powered cable, but it wasn't a perfect cable.
I had mixed results when trying to use this on a Davis Weather Station. It would work for an hour or 2, and then the computer would report a loss of communication with the device. Unplugging it and plugging it back it would fix this issue. Now, I am not going to completely fault the cable, because the David weather systems are notoriously bad USB devices.
Now, for the part that confuses me. I had an old USB powered hub that I hooked up between this cable and the weather station cable. Since I've done that, it's worked flawlessly, or at least significantly better.
All this being said, it is one of only a few really long USB extension cables. I will get it again if I need something over 15ft, I just hope it works better on my next device.
