This 50ft. USB 2.0 Extension cable allows you to extend both USB and USB 2.0 cables an additional length (50ft.) for placement of your single device with no Data Loss in between. It has an additional male USB plug to give an extra 300ma of power across the cable, this will power most USB devices.
The active 50ft. USB 2.0 Extension Cable is not a passive cable and does not exhibit Data Loss across its connection. It has a patent pending ASIC chip inside that buffers the ingoing and outgoing USB signals. Passive cables themselves have the risk of data loss because they cannot pass the signals efficiently when connected. The Active Extension Cable acts as a single device port hub, increasing the distance between your computer and USB devices. The Gearmo 50ft. USB 2.0 Extension cable meets USB specifications and works with low-speed and high-speed USB devices.
