USB 2.0 extension cable female end This is the female end of the USB2.0 Extension Cable and the brains of the operation. This is what delegates the USB signal when connecting several USB2.0 extension cables in series or connecting one peripheral USB cable to the extension. The standard USB cable length is about 5 meters, the USB extension cable or data extension cable as it is sometimes called does as it's name implies and extends or repeats the length of the standard usb cable, or the length of data signal to its destination peripheral or hub. This particular cable is 16 feet long.

GM-800-5M USB 2.0 Extension Cable Testimonial

SIMPLE is as SIMPLE does! All you have to know about USB is how to plug it into your USB Port and the usb2.0 extension cable takes care of the rest. I tested this with my PhotoSmart printer and it's 5 meter cable. I was in the living room and the printer in the kitchen, about 20 feet away. I very simply connected the female end of the repeater to the USB printer cable and the male end to my laptop, printed a document in no time flat just as if I was connected directly to the printers USB cable. This opens up possibilities for me as I work out of my living room.

This is a home office must and will certainly allow you more options when it comes to setting up a home office with your USB peripherals. I would certainly recommend this product to those who need to extend their USB cable and signal.
