All our “passive” USB extension cables use 28 AWG cable, making them flexible enough for all types of applications, as well as being able to deliver the power required to charge today's portable devices.
These cables are USB 2.0 rated (also known as Hi-Speed) and capable of a data transfer rate of 480Mbps, making them compatible with all USB 2.0 devices. Our extension cables are available in a range of lengths and colors; this is ideal for color coding your equipment! Use the different colors to identify your printer, hard drive, scanner, printer, etc.
Don't forget! Passive USB extension cables are unpowered. Therefore you cannot exceed a combined length of 16ft, which is the maximum distance specified by the USB standard.
For example, if you purchased a 10ft extension cable and plugged a regular 10ft USB cable into that, you would have an overall length of 20ft, 4ft longer than the USB standard allows!
