USB 2.0 A Female/B Female Adapter
This coupler features a female USB A type connector at one end and a female USB B type connector at the other end, allowing you to extend a pair of USB A to B cables. 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.
PROS: Handy for turning regular USB printer cables into extension cables to plug in things like USB memory sticks.
CONS: Not really any that I can think of.
PROS: High quality, reasonable price
Now, I have plenty of USB Extender cables for keyboard, mouse, printer, phone chargers, etc.
What a great way to keep these cords out of the landfills for the time being.
What a great find.
PROS: works great!!!
PROS: Good price, fast delivery!

Now many devices come with cords that have a Male A on one end and a B or a mini USB on the other end.
So, if you want to run a cord from the computer to the top of your desk, and have it available to act as a conduit for several devices, you need some way to adapt the end ot the cord to whatever the new device might be. I found that my external drive had a B termination, as does my card reader, but the pocket pen drive had a different terminal.
Fortunately, Monoprice has a variety of adapters so you can interchange varioyus USB devices.
The problem is to figureout which ones you have. The nice photos in the Monoprice catalog help you figure out the correct one, and the price is so reasonable, you can afford to buy an assortment so that you are allways in control.
