An Effective Solution Where a Long USB Cable is Required
I wanted to use a switch-box to share a printer between two PCs. One PC runs Windows 8 and the other runs Windows XP. The printer was not recognised on the Windows XP PC because of losses in the switch and the length of the USB cable, which exceeded the recommended maximum of 5 metres. After replacing my old USB cable with this active one, everything works perfectly and I can now hot-switch the printer between both PCs. No drivers required - just plug in the lead and you are ready to go. This is a quality product that is worth every penny.
Bought this cable as a reserve and collect item booked over the phone. It's the second one I've had to buy. The first one worked nicely... so my Dad nicked it.
I bought the 12 Meter version @ 29.00 to get a decent signal with my mobile broadband dongle. It worked instantly with no problems even for downloading big files. It did just the job I wanted. Brilliant!
Tried this product as a second option to extend a 3G dongle, i tried three units with no success, maybe ok for other peripherals not 3G dongles.
I ordered this product 1 day and the next day it arrived, that's what I call service, and the cable was just what I wanted. I am a very satisfied customer of Maplin and have been so for some time.
What can I say. It is a 5m USB extension lead. worked a treat. just what I needed.

Will this cable work with a logitech webcam?
If i wanted to extend to 10 m would I need two of these cables or one of these cables and a regular usb extender?
Ray Buck said:
I note that the cable extension will not increase the speed of a usb 1 device, but presumeably the cable will still support a usb 1 device at the slower speed?
Do you stock a 5m standard USB extension cable as mentioned in the 'USB 2.0 Active 5m Extension Lead' description? I can only seem to find 1.5m and 3m extension cables. Thanks, Darren
using a combination of USB2 active extender would I be able to extend a PC mouse up to a distance of 20M from the PC workstation.

usb 2.0 active 5m Extention Would this work with a web camera?
The word Active implies the use of power so does this mean the USB socket in a laptop has to be of a certain specification so as not to overload the socket when in use ? If so, how would I check the spec of \the socket on the laptop.
Can I use your USB 2.0 Active 5m Extension Lead for my Mobile Broadband Dongle?
