The AmazonBasics USB 2.0 A-Male to A-Female Extension Cable with Gold-Plated Connectors lets you extend your USB connection and offers full performance for all your USB devices. If you need a longer USB 2.0 cable to connect a peripheral that's out of your computer's reach, this extension cable is just what you're looking for.
USB Extension Cable for Convenience
Whether due to space, convenience or décor, sometimes you need a longer USB 2.0 cable. If you need to extend the reach of your USB peripheral - such as a mouse, VoIP phone or printer - this extension cable from AmazonBasics is the answer.
The cable features an A-Male connector on one end and an A-Female connector on the other. Typically, the A-Male connector plugs in to your computer and the A-Female connects to the cable you need extending. Check your device manuals to make sure this is the connector you need.

Top customer reviews
I bought the USB cable along with the USB extension cable and was pleasantly surprised to see that both combined immediately allowed for the full charge to reach the Samsung tablets, so the Tab 2 could actually BE charged (it couldn't get a charge at all before unless I used a dedicated Samsung cable and wall adapter) and the Tab 4 charged in 50% of the time it took with the generic cables. Because it's also a decent enough cable to allow the trickle-charge, I'm also able to get an additional couple of hours from each charging cycle.
So far, I've used both cables combined to charge:
Samsung Tab 2
Samsung Tab 3
KitSound Manhattan headphones
PlayStation 4 controller
All of which have charged perfectly, and have provided better battery performance than they did with generic non-branded cables.
just get it as you won't find better for less!
Works great for a data, not for charging.
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.
I am very happy with this purchase. Although it's only a piece of wire, it is essential to operate my printer. The AmazonBasics cable is sturdy yet flexible, the connectors have a look of quality and, unless it's a coincidence, my oldish printer seems to work more reliably.
I had previously bought an AmazonBasics USB 2.0 A-Male to B-Male Cable 6 Feet / 1.8 m for my camcorder and all I have said above also applies to that cable. A very good product at an affordable price. The product was packaged adequately in environmentally-friendly cardboard.
