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
We have a USB printer and a USB postage meter which we needed to place a bit further away from the controlling PC than the 16' USB cable limit. With the 16ft 2 Port USB 2.0 A Male to A Female Active Extension / Repeater Cable we were able to run both devices from a single USB port. With this active USB extension cable and the 'normal' (~1m) USB cables for the devices, we were able to rearrange the office more conveniently with no loss of functionality from either device.
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.
