What is USB?
Commonly found on desktop computers and laptops, USB connections are among the most versatile type of connections. USB is primarily used for transferring data between devices, but it also has the ability to transfer power between compatible devices. Currently four versions of USB exist – USB 3.1 (10Gbps), USB 3.0 (5Gbps), USB 2.0 (480Mbps) and USB 1.1 (12Mbps). In most cases cables are compatible across all versions but maximum transfer speed may be limited. For example, a USB 2.0 cable in a USB 3.0 port would only provide a maximum transfer rate of 480Mbps, not 5Gbps. To achieve optimum transfer speeds here, a USB 3.0 cable should be used.

Why use this USB-A 2.0 to USB-B 2.0 cable?
This cable uses USB-A 2.0 and USB-B 2.0 connectors and is mainly used to connect large devices such as printers and scanners to computer systems, but can also be found on a number of other devices. The cable provides a maximum data transfer rate of 480Mbps when both devices use USB 2.0 ports.

Why choose Maplin cables?
The Maplin range of cables features premium construction and specifications, with market-leading cable technology. Maplin cables are constructed from hard-wearing materials with colour-coded, compact connectors available for almost any use. All Maplin cables are quality assured, with a five year warranty across the range.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor value This is a basic spec USB cable of the type that is provided free with cameras etc. There is nothing particularly wrong with it. Only bought this in desperation! For much the same price you can get higher quality cables with gold plated connectors (Nikkai) - but my local Maplin no longer stocks them. So decent product but grossly over priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Nice and robust, giving me that bit of extra reach I needed, after rearranging my computer system and printer.
