    16ft 2 Port USB 2.0 A Male to A Female Active Extension / Repeater Cable

    Get three, three, three functions in one cable with the Monoprice USB 2.0 Active Extension/Repeater/Hub!

    You can extend the length of your USB 2.0 cable an additional 16 feet with this cable. It comes with a USB A male connector on one end and a pair of USB A female connectors on the other.

    When extending USB cables beyond about 15 feet, you can suffer from signal strength reduction. The further you go, the worse it becomes until you get poor (or no) valid connections. This cable includes a signal amplifier, which will boost the signal strength so you can extend further without signal loss. It draws on USB power to provide the boost or can use an optional AC adapter (not included) for the power it needs.

    This cable is also serves as a 2-port USB hub. Each of the two USB A female connectors can connect to a discrete USB device and the cable will manage data signals in the same way as any other USB hub. The cable can be used as a passive hub or active, using the optional AC power adapter (not included) connected to the repeater unit, allowing the cable to drive power-hungry USB devices, such as portable hard drives or for phone charging.

    The repeater unit has two LEDs, one to indicate when an external power source is connected and the other to indicate when a valid USB data link is established with one or both of the hub ports.

    The optional power supply will have a power rating of 5 VDC at 1A. The connector size is 3.8 mm barrel and a 1.3 mm pin diameter. PID 2220 AC Power Adapter 5.0V/1.0A is the correct adapter to use for this cable.

    Do I need the power supply if I simply want to use it to connect two different computers to the same printer?
    Johnny S on Mar 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, if you want to use both ports.
    Where do you plug the power cord into the 2 Port USB 2.0 A Male to A Female Active Extension / Repeater Cable? I have an ASUS BluRay DVD Reader/Writer that needs 2 USB 2.0 ports. One for data and one for power. I tried using a 4 port hub but since it doesn't have it's own power supply it wasn't powerful enough. I don't have any room on my desk so I need a cable that is at least 7 ft to reach. Thank you for your time and help. Be blessed! Amanda

    Works as designed...
    Worked with a non-powered KB and mouse exactally how I planned. MP saved my show budget $1000s.

    Works great for KB/M
    I bought this to use for a keyboard and mouse. It is for a living room pc setup so I can sit on the couch without having to worry about cords disconnecting or batteries running out. I am running this without the powered adapter and it works great! Response seemed the same while gaming and have not had any issues so far!

    PROS: long, but manageable. powered adapter optional. sturdy build quality.

    CONS: none!

    Second Time's The Charm
    First cable was dropping its connection. Emailed MP and they shipped out a replacement immediately and followed up with emails from their tech reps. Not only is MP's price unbeatable, their service is outstanding as well. Wish our government worked this good.

    USB devices work
    Everything works as planned now I just need to hide the cord

    PROS: Works exactly as advertised

    CONS: The greatest part of this is its weakness. It's a 12 foot cord. Where do you put it while not in use so that it will not be seen. I would love a retractable version of this.

    Help you to go farther
    I bought this cord so I could use my computer for gaming on the Big Screen TV. I wanted to be able to use my Merc Stealth Gaming Keyboard and Zalman FPS mouse in the other room playing Battlefield 4 and other computer games using my 55" screen. This does the job and I can play without having to move my computer. Works Great

    PROS: feels and looks like quality

    CONS: none I can see.

    Works really well!
    I bought these so I could play games while chillin in my bed. The cable, being only 16 feet, may have been my only issue, but there is a lot of lenght. I also use them for web cams in my conf rooms for video chat. Great value and quality product. :)

    PROS: Long! Also has LED indicators to let you know if it is working, and it is always working. Used it for keyboard/mouse and webcam.

    CONS: You can't eat it.

    Silly me bought thinking it was just a USB male to 2 USB female cable
    Should be explained a bit better ...maybe if the power adapter had been in the picture ..say as an accessory for an extra amount ..I might have figured out my mistake ..which did cost me 8.99$ to rectify .

    PROS: High quality

    CONS: Silly mistake on my part buying the wrong type of cable

    Great cables
    What more can I say, buy these, you won't regret it.

    PROS: Works with no lag

    Thicker cable than other extensions

    CONS: None

    Great when it worked...
    9 dollars was kind of a lot to spend on this but I wanted something that could be boosted. I think I'll just get a passive one next time...

    PROS: Worked great for 10 months, then it died out.

    CONS: Red power light turns on, green link light does not.
