I'm trying to use this extension cable to charge a dongle for my internet but it isn't working. I've tried to charge my phone with it also, but I get the same problem. Any thoughts as to why this may be?

Asked by: Jack7
Unfortunately, this would be impossible to diagnose through an FAQ, I would suggest returning the product to a store so the store staff can take a look at this product for you.

Your overview says "can be used to passively extend your connection up to a maximum of five meters, however a larger distance can be covered with help from an active USB repeater cable", however - it's a 12m "active" cable. Do you need anything else with?

Asked by: Dom Beken
No this would be fine on it's own.
