Semi-functional - some loss of power means not all devices work,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AmazonBasics USB 2.0 A-Male to A-Female Extension Cable 3 m / 9.8 Feet (Personal Computers)
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.
