    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)
    • Cable wire size : 20/28 AWG
    • Downstream connector: USB type A Female
    • Upstream connector: USB type A Male
    • Data transfer rate : 480/12/135 Mbs
    • Windows XP, Vista & 7 compatible, Mac compatible

    I need some clarification in the description it says "*Note that this will only work with the USB version of the Kinect for use with the older Xbox 360 systems". Do does that mean the cable can't be used for anything else? I wanna use it for a USB Audio setup. From my PC to Stereo System.
    Timothy T on Jul 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It will work for that. This is stating that if you want to use it on connect, then it will only work on the older Kinect as I believe the newer ones need usb 3.0.

    BEST ANSWER: I honestly don't know the answer to your particular problem, but I can tell you that I had a problem with an auxiliary keyboard hookup on my 5'X10' CNC machine and this cable solved it. Even with a lot of my woodworking machinery running in the shop and the CNC cutting pieces, I haven't had a problem.
    Will this cable work to extend the range of a Bluetooth speaker?
    A shopper on Aug 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Only if you plug your Bluetooth doingle into it and stretch the cable out, but I don't think that is what you are after.

    Works great! Would definitely recommend
    I bought 2 of these, plus a normal (non-active) 16' USB extension cable. I had a USB device in one room that I needed to connect to my computer in another (about 40' of total cable length needed).

    I thought I'd try these since I had nothing to lose as they are inexpensive.

    To my surprise they work very well. I haven't noticed any difference in performance at all.

    If you need to extend your USB distance I definitely recommend trying these.

    PROS: They work, inexpensive

    CONS: None

    Plug and Play!
    I bough this to connect a printer and scanner to a computer where the cables need to be at least 20 feet long in order to route them behind the furniture and keep them hidden. I previously tried passive extension cables, but they were intermittent at that distance. I installed these active extension cables along with the 2M cables that came with the devices and they are working perfectly.

    PROS: No configuration necessary. Worked first time. Hardly more expensive than a passive cable.

    CONS: The ends with the active circuitry in them are quite a bit larger than a typical USB cable. I had some difficulty routing it through tight spaces.

    Consistent quality
    In an effort to determine how best to charge and sync 80 tablets in fixed locations, I bought three 8751 cables (5 meters each). I wanted to test the effect of length on both amps and data transfer speed. (I had received conflicting information.) For what it's worth, length definitely effects charging time of a tablet. The one meter cable received with the tablet will charge it from zero to 100% in about 3 hours. With 15 meters (3/8751's) added to the one meter cable, charging time increased to about 22 hours. On the other hand, 873MB in 412 files transferred in the same amount of time regardless of the length of 1 meter or 49 meters. I got consistent results over several tests which indicates to me that the quality of the cables was consistent.

    Further, the price was right!

    Works perfect!
    Using to extend a USB connection to a printer about 20' away. This cable provides a reliable USB connection where other long (non-repeating) cables have failed. Great product!

    in some cases we are using 2 of these cables to accomplish 100' and the camera pictures are perfect

    PROS: work perfectly:-)

    CONS: none

    Works Perfectly!
    Wanted to connect a DDR pad to the computer tower which is pretty far away. This extension cable with the repeater works great. Pad works and responds perfectly. No delays or loss of signal due to long length.

    My first stop for any cable needs.

    PROS: Cable works great, tech support helped pick the correct cable for what I needed. Quality was better than expected for the price paid.

    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.

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

    CONS: None
