16ft 5M USB 2.0 A Male to A Female Active Extension / Repeater Cable (Kinect & PS3 Move Compatible Extension)

Extend your USB 2.0 connections beyond the normal maximum of 16 feet with this USB 2.0 Active Extension/Repeater Cable from Monoprice!

The normal maximum length of USB 2.0 cables is 5 meters, or about 16 feet. Beyond this the strength and timing of the signals can get out of tolerance and the USB connection will fail. This extension/repeater cable contains active electronics, which recondition and boost the timing signals to ensure that they stay within tolerance.

The repeater gets its power from the USB 5VDC bus, so no external power adapter is required. Multiple repeater cables can be daisy-chained together to get even longer USB cable runs.

This cable is compatible with the USB version of the Xbox 360 Kinect* and with the Playstation 3 Eye camera!

*Note that this will only work with the USB version of the Kinect for use with the older Xbox 360 systems and that the separate Kinect power cable must be used to power the Kinect sensor. This cable can only extend the data connection for the USB Kinect.

  • Cable Length : 5M(18ft)

  • Downstream connector: USB type A Female
  • Upstream connector: USB type A Male

Pros: quality cable, good price, works perfect

Cons: none

I needed a longer USB cable to connect to a Wifi antenna. This cable was used to extend the cable from the antenna. It works perfectly.

TERRIFIC USB cable extender

Pros: - Plenty Long
- Great price
- Works well across multiple platforms, accessories and interfaces

Cons: - None yet

I purchased this USB extension to connect a Logitech G29 to a Playstation 3, which works PERFECTLY. I have since used the extension to connect an external USB 3.0 SSD to a USB3 hub, and an external USB 2.0 card reader to a Windows 10 PC. Both also worked flawlessly.

Just about every configuration I've used this extension cable in it has met or exceeded my expectations.

Another great product at a terrific price from Monoprice. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a USB (repeated) extension to search no further.

Thanks again Monoprice!

Pros: Great cable, even greater price

Cons: None

I was concerned that the length,which I needed to extend my remote shutter trigger would be too great. Asked tech support about it and was told it should work. It did, nothing more to say about the product, more to say about Monoprice a fantastic company offering great products and great customer service.

Not for charging good for flash drives

  • 8/18/2015 7:16:51 PM

Pros: Works well for a flash drive

Cons: Does not work well for charging a tablet

I bought this with the intent of charging an Android tablet. The wall adapter supplies 2000 mA of current and works fine with other USB cables, so I assumed this product would just extend the distance that I could be from the wall charger. This did not work. The device did claim to be charging, but the % of battery life remaining kept decreasing. I removed this cable and the device's battery immediately began to increase.

I did have success using this for plugging in a flash drive, so I suppose this will be the new use for this cable.

Thank you for your review and I am truly sorry for the inconvenience. Since this is an active extension it might not fully extend the power of the wall adapter. Can you please let me know the length of the run you are using as you might just need a standalone cable that will work better for charging. Let me know thank you!

Thanks John. I am using this 16 foot extension plus a 6 foot USB to MicroUSB that I know is functional. The total length would be 22 feet from the wall charger to the tablet.

Hello James,

Thank you for your response. You may just be running too long a length for 2000mah, did you see if it would at least trickle charge? As I think this is how it is with USB and getting a replacement, would have the same result. Let me know, thank you!

Pros: Had Items in stock and ready to ship. Shipped immediately. Received items quickly. Good quality. Absolutely unbeatable prices

Cons: None

The cable was exactly what I needed. It was in stock and shipped right away. It arrived two days after the order was placed. I plugged it in and it works perfectly. The price was fantastic and the service was excellent and the product first class. Sorry, but I couldn't find anything else wrong.

Items were the type that could be found in brick and mortar stores (and even this brand in those stores) but the selection here was excellent, the price (even including the tax and shipping) was far below anybody else. I received the items within two days of placing the order.
