Overview

The USB3AAEXT5M, 5-meter Active USB 3.0 Extension Cable, offers one USB type-A (male) connector and one USB type-A (female) connector, and provides an active extension of USB 3.0 devices of up to 5-meters (16-feet).

An all in one cable for overcoming distance restrictions as well as power source limitations; the active USB 3.0 extension cable incorporates bus powered active circuitry to ensure performance beyond the length limits of standard USB cables.

(5 stars) WORKS GREAT !!

By:
If you need USB 3.0 5m away, this is the cable to get! It ships with a power supply, but on a new iMac, that PS is not needed. The blue LED makes it super-cool.
