Like the title, I am using this extension plugged directly into a USB 3.1 Gen2 port directly into my motherboard. Don’t use front ports and yes I know this is only USB 3.0 or USB 3.1 Gen1 cable.

While using this with a Oculus Quest for Oculus Link I get a slow battery drain from the quest so this cable is unable to sustain the amperage required for charging while using the Quest. It may be because of my setup. I will know after I receive the Anker 10ft A to C cable.

Caveat: I am using a USB type A male to type C female adapter and a 10ft type C to type C cable. I suspect the additional questionable quality of the adapter I am using is contributing to the inability to keep the Quest fully powered. I will amend the review once I get more cables to test.

Top Critical Review

When used to lengthen the USB 3.0 cable supplied with the Logitech Brio Web Camera, the resulting picture was narrow and grossly pixelated when plugged into a USB 3.0 Super Speed SS port on a Dell desktop. With the seller’s cord excluded the picture was excellent. When a 4 year old USB 2.0 extender was used which was identical length as this cable (16 ft.), the picture was also excellent. So this cable did not even work as well as a USB 2.0 extender that was 4 years old and purchased from a different manufacturer. When I contacted this company they said that I should plug the camera into a power supply which was a ridiculous answer since there is no power supply option for this high end Logitech Web cam. They also stated that their cord did not work in this application (which was obvious) but did not offer to trade it out for a new one or offer to return it. Of course Amazon took it back but the whole experience wasted about a week of my time. Not a true 3.0 USB extender and apparently not even a true USB 2.0 extender.
