Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

This item will make the distance from my new Amazon Firestick to the electrical power socket 6.5 metres as it comes with 1.5 metre cable. Is that likely to cause any problems with picture quality or the like?

Asked by: John
This should not cause any issue with the picture as it would only be providing the Firestick with power.

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?
Asked by: Ray Buck
yes that is correct
