AmazonBasics USB 3.0 A-Male to A-Female Extension Cable
Moves your USB ports to 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. If the USB cable which you are using to connect two devices with eachother is just too short, this extension cable gives you the length you need. It is great for connecting flash drives and flip-out USB drives that you see 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. The USB port can now come to you.
Durable - made for lots of connections
We know that USB devices get plugged in and out many times. This is why the extension cable has gold-plated connector ends that protect the cable and the connectors. The gold-plating also offers protection against noise that comes from electromagnetic or radio-frequency signals and thus keeps your signal clear with less loss of bandwidth. The AmazonBasics USB 3.0 Extension Cable supports the full USB 3.0 standard with a transmission speed of up to 625 MBps, so you can take advantage of the full performance of your peripherals and devices.
- Extends USB connections between your computer and devices like printers, digital cameras, video games, keyboards, mice and flash drives up to 3 m.
- Gold-plated connectors for signal protection and corrosion resistance.
- Features USB 3.0 A-Male to A-Female connectors.
- Dimensions: 9.8 feet / 3.0 m
- Transfer Rate: up to 625 MBps
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.

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.
There aren't many alternatives in this length and there was no hesitation in making the purchase.
Other lengths and also the Extension cable have also since been purchased and put to excellent, although not always constant, use. Quality and value for money is excellent.
I was able to use this to extend my USB card reader, which is attached to the roof of my desk, all the way to the back of my PC easily. The length is perfect without it needing to be any shorter nor longer.
Overall very useful for when you need a USB device at the front of your PC while keeping your setup looking clean.
These are also a cheaper option for lengthening charging cables, rather than buying a new cable, especially in the case of Apple Lightning cables, which tend to be relatively expensive even if they are third party.
The cable is thick, but not too thick, so it should be fairly durable over time.
Overall, a good USB 3 extension cable, which transmits power, data, and is durable.
Thanks to this cable and a USB 3.0 hub I now have on desk access for my various USB 3.0 odds and sods such as a few external hard drives and USB thumb drives. If you are reading this I am sure you already know that there is no comparison in speed between USB 2 and 3 it's like night and day and when I buy any USB gear I deliberately make sure it's USB 3.0 as it's super quick compared to the older USB platforms.
I ran various speed tests on my USB ports and then with using this cable and there is no and I mean zero speed loss by using this cable which I was impressed with.
The "basics" part of the name made me think it might be cheap and nasty but it feels and looks very well made and actually feels like a premium product or as premium as a USB cable can be!
