Top Positive Review

It works. I mean what else can I say? It’s a USB extension cable. It’s not going to make you more attractive to the opposite sex (or same, if that’s your thing…) It’s not going to buy you a beer, put it’s USB shielded arm around your shoulder and commiserate you for not being attractive. It won’t drive you to the ball game to hang out with your friends to forget your worries. And it certainly won’t bail you out of jail when you do something stupid like drink too much beer, scream at geese in the park and chase them into the water. I mean what kind of a friend is this USB cable anyway? I give it a place to stay, it uses my computer all the time, and I think it’s eyeing my SCSI ports. And after I rescued it from the depths of a warehouse somewhere! I mean that’s friendship for you isn’t it? And I think it’s eating all my popcorn too!

But yeah, it does what I need it to do. What else can I say?

Top Critical Review

It serves as a usb extension so helpful if you really need the length but I tested the power being delivered through the cable and it essentially cuts the power draw of my usb powered devices by half. Tried it with 3 different power sources on a few different devices with the same results. For example my phone was charging at 1.8A at 5.21V and after adding this cable it cut the power draw down to 1.0A at 4.67V. If all you really need is a plug extension then this will do the trick but just keep in mind you won??t be able to charge certain devices optimally. I haven??t tested transfer speeds but I can only imagine the results may mirror my findings.

Customer Questions & Answers

Since this is 3.0 will it backwords work with 2.0?
Answer: If your PC has a USB 3.0 port this cable will work with a USB 2.x or USB 1.x device on the other end.

However if your PC only has USB 2.x or USB 1.x ports this cable will not work.

I have a piece of equipment that comes with a 10′ cable, but I need it to be longer. Will this cable cable be applicable for this type of application?
Answer:

Yes, that’s precisely the purpose of an extension cable. But this would make your total length 20 feet. You’ll get signal degradation but it will probably still work. If you’re counting on best performance, use an active (repeater) USB cable or a USB hub. Consider a single 15′ or 30′ active USB cable instead of a stand??

Can this work to extend the charger cable for a go pro?
Answer: It extends any standard USB 3.0 cable. If that is what is used to charge a GoPro then yes.

Would it work if I plugged a flash drive in it?
Answer: It works great. It works on USB 2.0 and 3.0. So, yes, it’s perfect for any flash dive. But the computer it’s plugged into must have USB 3.0 capability and the cable must be plugged into the USB 3.0 (Blue) port to enjoy the extra speed of USB 3.0.

Does this cable work with the oculus rift & sensors, recognized as usb 3.0 port?
Answer: I just received the 10′ cable and it combined with the Amazon 10′ display port cable and it does not work on the Rift S. I tried two different gaming computers. One with a1660ti and the other with a RX 5700 XT.

Does it run 3.0 both directions? Many are 3.0 male to female but is this also 3.0 female to male?
Answer: Yes. However, if you are on a 2.0 device it will only allow the 2.0 to run thru.

One cable is perfect the other one dont work
Answer: None of mine worked

will this work with a 9.7 iPad?
Answer: If it’s USB, it’ll work!
