The USB A Male to A Female USB Active Extension Cable allows you to extend your USB signal 16 additional feet.  This allows you to put your printer, camera, or other devices up to 31 feet away*.

This cable uses smart technology to re-condition and boost your signal. For added distance, four active extension cables can be linked together providing a reliable signal up to 79 feet!


  • Length: 16 foot
  • Connector 1: USB Type A Male
  • Connector 2: USB Type A Female
  • Plug and Play—No software needed
  • Bus powered—No external power required
  • Indicator light to show a connection is made
  • Downward compatible with USB specifications 1.0 and 1.1

*To achieve all 31 feet requires a standard 15 foot USB cable along with the active extension. If you have a 6-foot cable already, it would be a total working distance of 22 feet.
