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 USB-A to USB-A cable?
This cable uses a male USB-A 3.0 to male USB-A 3.0 connector, and is uncommonly used to connect devices that use a female USB-A 3.0 port in place of micro or mini connections. This cable provides a maximum of 5 Gbps when both devices are USB 3.0 compliant.

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 4 out of 5 by from Very good throughput speed. I needed USB 3 cables in order to extend the reach to peripheral equipment. As the equipment was not within easy reach, I needed cables of sufficient length and with rapid throughput speed. The cables I bought met every criteria and have solved a problem I was beginning to think would be too difficult.
