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.


This cables uses a male USB-A 3.0 port to female USB-A 3.0 port, which allows you to extend an existing connection or move a USB connection point to another location without the hassle of moving your computer. This cable 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. The maximum transfer rate of this cable is 5 Gbps when all devices are USB 3.0 compliant.

The info says this cable can be used to extend connection to upto only 5m. Why not 6m, since a standard USB 3.0 cable can be upto 3m, therefore 3m Normal + 3m Active = 6m ?

Asked by: USBuser
Yes this should be fine up tp 6 meters.
