The USB Hi-Speed active booster extension cable will allow existing USB cables to be extended without losing signal quality. These extensions come in a variety of lengths, and can be daisy-chained together for unprecedented USB distances. The typical limitation of the USB signal (without active boosters) is about 15 feet, but this varies depending on equipment.

15F and 30F cables have one booster on the female end, with 50F and over featuring in-line boosters throughout the cable, as well as another booster at the female receptacle. They are compatible with modern operating systems, meet full USB 2.0 speeds, and are powered directly from the computer (no power supply required).

The active USB extension cable is a transparent device, invisible to both the computer and peripheral, and requires no additional drivers or software. It is not invisible to the human eye, however, unless concealed by an invisibility cloak or a bedazzling hex.

Please Note: Because the USB booster draws power from the bus of the host, the UBX2-15 must be oriented properly. The male end of the cable must be in the direction of the computer or powered hub, and the female (booster) end must be in the direction of the device.
