Moves USB ports where you want them

USB ports on your computer, TV, external hard drive, and other devices can be hard to reach. This extension cable brings the port to you. When the USB cable you're using to connect two devices together is just too short, this extension cable gives you the length you need. It works perfectly for connecting flash drives and the flip-out USB drives found on some camcorders.

No more climbing under the desk

If you've ever had to crawl on hands and knees to try to access USB ports behind your computer, you need this extension cable. Now the USB port can come to you.

Durable - made for lots of connections

We know that USB devices get plugged in and unplugged many, many times. Because of this fact, the extension cable has gold-plated connectors that protect the cable and the connectors. What's more, the gold-plating protects against noise from electromagnetic and radio-frequency signals, keeping your signal clear with less loss of bandwidth. The AmazonBasics USB 3.0 Extension Cable supports the full USB 3.0 standard with up to 625-Mbps transmission speed, so you can take advantage of the full performance of your peripherals and devices.

How it works
  • Plug the male end of the cable into the USB port on your device (like your computer).
  • Now you can plug in a USB cable from a device (like a camera) into the female end of the extension cord instead of the USB port.
Extra things to know
  • Remember, this is an extension cable, not a USB cable. It's the same principle as when you plug a lamp into an electrical extension cable. You'll be connecting a device with an existing USB cable to this cable, and then this cable connects to the device with the USB port.
Frustration-Free Packaging

This AmazonBasics product features Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging that is recyclable. It comes without excess packaging materials, such as hard plastic clamshell casings, plastic bindings or wire ties. The packaging is designed to be opened without the use of a box cutter or knife and it will protect your product just as well as traditional packaging. Products with Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging can frequently be shipped in their own boxes, without an additional shipping box, saving on resources and reducing waste.

I bought this extension for an external hard drive which I use with a late 2007 white MacBook that is USB 2.0 only. After running benchmark tests it seems like the transfer speed is not affected and everything works just as fine as with its original 3ft cable. Then I tried extending the factory USB-30pin cable of my iPhone 4s and it charges just fine from the MacBook and iTunes recognizes the device. However, for some reason the mains charger will not charge the iPhone through this cable so that's a bit of a downer because I was looking into ordering another one just for this purpose. It might be the cable length or the fact that it's USB 3. So for people who would buy this to extend their iPhone cable from their mains charger, look elsewhere, maybe try 2m ones! Cheers!

I had previously purchased a variety of cables from the Amazon Basics brand and had found them to be reliable and usually of better quality than others sold at a similar price and sometimes those of a higher price. Although not always the least expensive, they are superior to the 'budget' products sold by some, far more reliable and fairly priced for the performance they provide.

There aren't many alternatives in this length and there was no hesitation in making the purchase.

Recommendation.

The amazon basics cables all seem to be very well made - sturdier than most of the ones you get with products. This is no exception, and apart from that what else is there to say? It works fine and transfer speeds don't seem to suffer from the long cable run.

I ordered two because my PC (running linux) and my wife's PC (running windows 7) both have USB3.0 sockets only at the back where there are not at all convenient to use. The cables effectively bring them round to the side or front, with length to spare.

The cables were delivered amazingly fast, and in sensible packaging (only cardboard, and wire ties). They seem to be very solid, much thicker than the 12inch cable that came with my WD portable USB3 hard drive. So the cable won't snake tightly round corners, which is fine for me.

Simple testing of the WD on the linux machine suggested that there was no difference in speed between using only the supplied short cable and the short cable plus 2M extension cable (though I did find the Kingston Data G4 32GB USB Flash Drive much slower than the WD hard drive -- to be expected at such a low price I suppose.)

So far I am very satisfied with delivery, performance and price. But It's too soon to evaluate long term reliability, and I know that cables (especially the plugs) can stop working after a few months.

Well made cable, if a little stiff. I bought two of them and they are really excellent value for money.

This is a very well made, good quality cable that is excellent value for money and works perfectly. The cable is quite stiff, so don't expect to bend it around tight corners.
