USB 2.0 A Female to A Female Coupler Adapter
This coupler features a female USB A type connector at each end, allowing you to connect two standard male USB A type cables together. It is compatible with USB 2.0 and backwards compatible with USB 1.0/1.1 connections.
Note that the maximum reliable length for standard USB cables is about 15 feet. If you need to extend USB longer than that, we recommend the use of one of our Active USB Extender Cables.
I co-host a large, volunteer based digital media user group in Los Angeles. (You may have heard of us, Digital Media Artists Los Angeles, or DMALA.ORG.)
At every meeting, there's a different presenter with a different desktop or laptop that needs to be patched into the theater's presentation system. Every type of connector is needed at some point or another. I was so happy to find Monoprice.com. There's a large selection with photos. If you need a closer look, you just click to enlarge it.
Over my past few orders I've collected more connectors and adapters that I really care to carry around, but I know I have what I'll need - or can place another order if I don't. The items arrive when expected and the prices are low enough that you don't feel as though you have to jump to four or five web sites to do a price comparison. You don't have to be a group that is run by volunteers to appreciate that.
Thank you, Monoprice.
PROS: Coupler appears to be well constructed and functions properly
CONS: doesn't not work
I bought a couple of these to have in my emergency cable kit. Sure, longer continuous cables are probably better than having a joined cable. But sometimes you just don't have a long USB cable when you need one. But you always have a supply of shorter cables laying around. That's what this coupler is good for: saving the day when you least expect it.
PROS: Small, handy, inexpensive.
Thank you, monoprice, for supplying this.
PROS: price couldn't be better
CONS: hard to find.
