Size Name: 9.8 Feet/3.0 Meters
I bought this cable for use with a T-Mobile broadband dongle: it does not work for this purpose! I can only assume that the cable is not sufficiently shielded or the voltage drop is too great for this use. So I instead purchased a different (longer, 5m!) USB extension cable, also via Amazon, that turns out to work perfectly for what I need. You can find this alternative listed as: "USB A male to A Female Extension Cable 5m" by CDL Micro.

I made the assumption that I would be able to use this cable as an extension for charging my mobile phone (Galaxy S3) since the charger is USB based. It seems that the voltage drop is too much and thus won't carry enough current to charge my phone.

Works great for a data, not for charging.

Size Name: 9.8 Feet/3.0 Meters Verified Purchase
I had hoped I could use this extension cable to charge up my Kindle Fire at the same time as using it instead of relying on the titchy cable supplied by Amazon. However the charging ability drops substantially with this extension cable plugged in.

Works fine for transferring data but look elsewhere for a charger extension...

Size Name: 3.3 Feet / 1.0 Meters Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is an excellent quality cable, which functions perfectly, and has a nice design (black with the amazon logo in orange). Amazon Basics is a welcome range of high quality, reasonably priced computing basics and essentials which deserves to be very popular.

Just one criticism, not about the product itself but about the packaging. Frustration free packaging it may well be, but it's incredibly wasteful and has a huge carbon footprint. My cable, which measures 100cm long by 0.50cm thick, (and can be coiled around a little and fixed with an elastic band without damage) was delivered in a very large box, so large it came by parcel force van. When I saw the box I thought it was a huge encyclopaedia inside! Inside this large box was another, almost as large, box which contained the cable. I'm sure my little cable would have fitted perfectly into a jiffy bag, saving packaging and also fitting through my letterbox rather than being treated as a large package! If amazon sort out the issue of wasteful packaging, they have a perfect, truly award worthy range of high quality, affordable computing basics. Just make the packaging a bit more basic, too!

Size Name: 3.3 Feet / 1.0 Meters Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The extension cable arrived today and I used it in conjunction with my web cam. The problem with my web cam is that viewers write to me and ask can't I move it back a bit. Well, the lead was stretched to its limit. Now with the extension cable in use, I can use the web cam a further metre away and everyone is happy!
The quality of the image is still acceptable - any fault is actually with the web cam and its software, certainly not the extension lead!
I highly recommend the purchase of this extension cable, even as a standby, because there is bound to come a time when you'll want to use the USB port and find the existing cable on the peripheral equipment doesn't reach...well, with the extension cable - now it can! Worth every penny!

Size Name: 9.8 Feet/3.0 Meters Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a very simple item which is designed to give you an extension to your USB cables. I use a wheelchair and my base unit is close to the floor and I cannot reach down that low to plug my ipod and camera in, so this has been a lifesaver and has prevented me from having to bend down. So many products come with short USB cables and this fixes that problem without slowing down the connection.

This is well made and looks like it will stand the test of time. I am VERY pleased with my lead and recommend it to anyone who is struggling with the ever increasing number of products with ridiculously short cables!

Size Name: 9.8 Feet/3.0 Meters Verified Purchase
This USB extension lead does part of the job I wanted it for (extending the miserly 1m lead that comes with a Samsung Galaxy Tab) admirably, so I no longer find myself accidentally unplugging my tablet from its charger. It's a basic black lead - but Amazon did still manage to integrate their logo twice over.

However, the male ends of device leads don't seem to plug fully into the female end of this - leaving about 5mm of metal exposed when pushed in as tightly as they will go. I don't know if it's this gap or the simple fact of the extension cord being present but there is some drop in power vs using the mains lead directly. Whilst the extension presents no problems for charging my tablet, not enough power gets through to allow my Samsung keyboard dock (which uses the tablet's charger lead as its power supply) to work.
