Top Positive Review

I originally purchased this to use with a keyboard that had a very short cable. I ended up just using a different keyboard before this arrived, and I liked the keyboard so much that I’m just going to keep using this. I do, however, play my Xbox on my computer so I don’t disturb others here in the house. The wireless adapter for the computer is being used by someone else, so this extension was just what I needed to stay connected to my computer without having to be so close to it. My tower is on the floor a bit of a distance from where I sit, but that’s not an issue with this extension.

I have purchased many cables before, and they would always fall apart after a few months. A few years ago, I began purchasing these AmazonBasics cables wondering if they would be any better. So far, every single cable by them I’ve purchased still looks and performs like brand new. Even the HDMI cables, which usually break off at the end with other brands; they are still solid. Now that I have this USB extension, I’m going to buy a few more to sort of custom install in some of my custom furniture (usb ports in the coffee table to charge and connect to the tv without always having to move the tv, etc) throughout my house. This and all of the AmazonBasics cables are simple, inexpensive, but not “cheap”. Keep up the good work!

Top Critical Review

I got the 10 footer and no matter what I try using it with..it just won’t keep a solid connection. I was using it to connect a printer and it just keeps connecting then disconnecting if you even slightly move the cable. Tried it on an external Blu-ray burner and same thing. It’s almost as if it’s too long of a cable to be able to keep a solid connection to anything that requires power. Be cautious. Price is right but not if you can’t use it.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can these transfer data? Say if I were to plug a flash drive into the female end and the male end into my pc.
Answer:

Yes, this cable will transfer data; BUT you must make certain that the connectors on each end will match up with your flash drive on one end and the USB connector on your PC. Keep in mind, this product is an “extension” cable, hence a male on one end and female on the other, which is generally used to Extend another ca??

Has anyone tried these on the Sega Genesis Mini controller?
Answer: Male to female extenders work great.

can i use this on my ps3 headset to etxend mine very short ?
Answer: If your device has a USB connection you can use this. Can you use an extension cord on a lamp with a short cord ? ? ?

why does the search screen show this item at $4.99 but when I select it, the price goes up to $8.99?
Answer: The search results must be showing the price for the single 1 meter cord (4.99). If you look at the product page you are able to select different models available, the default or first model selected is the package of two 1 meter extension cords at 8.99 as a total price.

Is this ok to use with an iPhone lightning cable?
Answer: yes, it acts as an extension of your USB Iphone cable.

If I’m using this with a apple usb iPhone cord will this slow down my charging speed?
Answer: Charging your iPhone with a USB cable is using different codecs compared to exchanging data between 2 devices.Therefore you will not be able to notice any significant difference using a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 cable in your case.

Should this be used with wired mice?
Answer: It is only one cable, so I don’t think it would be helpful for more than one mouse. Should this be used, or can it be used? Your question doesn’t make any sense.

Hello, can anyone tell me is there a major difference, between a usb 3.0 and a usb 2.0? thank you.
Answer:

usb 3 is an upgrade on the older usb 2 standard. usb 3 runs much faster in part because its cable has more wires in it. usb 3 uses a blue connector base pad inside of the plug and the older usb 2 normally use black or white. This cable extends the usb 2 port on the side of your computer to some point 9 feet away. u??
