Bus-Powered Signal Booster and High-Speed Data Transfer
The U042-025 features a bus-powered signal booster (no external power source required) in the middle of the cable that extends the range of the USB signal, allowing you to overcome the typical 5-meter limitation. This allows USB peripheral devices, such as printers, scanners and card readers, to be located up to 25 feet from the host computer with no loss in signal quality.
With its superior design and construction plus data transfer rates of up to 480 Mbps, the U042-025 is ideal for multimedia and other high-end applications that require fast, clear transmission that is free of line noise and other interference. The U042-025 also provides 250mA of power to a connected device. If a device requires more than 250mA of power, it will either need to have its own power supply or be plugged into a powered USB 2.0 hub (Tripp Lite model U222-004-R, sold separately).
Superior Quality with One-Year Warranty and Environmentally Responsible Design
The U042-025 is constructed of top-quality materials. Premium double-shielded cables with tinned copper braid and aluminum Mylar foil feature twisted 28/24 AWG data lines for maximum EMI/RFI protection and signal quality. Molded connectors and integral strain relief guarantee durability and long life. A flexible PVC jacket makes the U042-025 easy to install, even in tight corners and other space-constrained areas.
The U042-025 is manufactured in compliance with strict RoHS specifications, reflecting Tripp Lite’s commitment to environmental responsibility. For peace of mind, it comes backed by a one-year warranty.
Top Customer Reviews
Don't get this if that is your intension. However, this wire seems to do fine for more passive products like an mp3 player or thumb-drive... and maybe a printer.
But for devices that need to give rapid input like any input device it is terrible and unusable.
if you plug a gamepad or keyboard in and press any keys... it will detect about 10% of your keypresses.
Notice that the people who have happy reviews are mostly using self-powered devices (like printers), and the people who are unhappy have more power-hungry devices (like the guy with the portable hard disk).
This is a clever product and serves a very useful purpose, but Tripplite doesn't provide enough guidance about this limitation.
(And I am looking at a FaceVsion webcam, which unhelpfully reports that it uses "USB 5V" power - yeah, I knew what the voltage had to be: tell me what the current demand is!!)
1.- Works at USB 2.0 speeds.
2.- Plug and play connectivity (didn't need any set up other than connecting it).
3.- Sturdy construction.
4.- It even looks great.
Good luck in making your choice.
When I found out Triplite was made in the USA I jumped on board and it worked flawlessly and continues to work flawlessly. Buy it, spend the extra $ and don't waste your time fooling with other brands.
No trouble so far with the replacement cable.
Purchased this 7 months ago and started using it 3 months ago. The USB device doesn't get moved much. The cable became unreliable disconnects for no reason without touching it. I have to jiggle it to get a reconnection. Moved the device closer with a different USB cable and don't have any trouble. Trouble proves to the cable. Tripp Lite gives this product a 1 year warranty... HOWEVER... Their web site REQUIRES a Serial Number to get an RMA. There is no serial number on the cable so there is no way to get an RMA. Tripp Lite is probably the only company on the planet that doesn't have a toll free number and playing email tag is not worth my time. I have always trusted Tripp Lite products but recently their quality seems to be dropping.
