WS Review Product Description



The worst part about USB devices?


They're ALWAYS too short. Always. Sure, it might not be the biggest problem in the world if you're just charging something, but what about USB transfers? Or USB-powered desk gadgets like fans or lights?

You need REAL distance.

It's that simple!

Whatever USB cable you were using, plug the connector into this thing and BOOM! It's now 16 feet longer!

See, most extension cables are what are known as "passive" cables. Not only do they generally cost you signal strength, they can only go a maximum distance before they simply don't function anymore.

This cable is an ACTIVE one!

What's so special about that, you ask?

Regular USB 2.0 has a ceiling of 16 feet if it's unassisted. That means that you cannot go beyond that distance.

BUT this cable is what's known as a "Repeater." This means you can hook up an existing USB cable to it, let's say an 8' cord for the sake of the description, and get a total length of 24' WITHOUT compromising on signal strength!


This has a device that boosts the signal automatically! So it actively "pushes" your data through!

I'm using one of these right now, actually!

Here at the office, we have this photo printer setup.  But there was a problem: there wasn't any room left for it on the desk.  We decided to run the USB cable up the drop ceiling, which we would NEVER have been able to do without the proper cable. 

If it was just a regular, 'passive' USB extension cable, guess what?

The signal strength would have been compromised because of that 16' limit!

But using this one, we were able to turn that 8' USB extension into a 24' extension and maintain a FULL strength signal!

It was amazing: sending data to the printer from that distance worked just as if it were right next to it! The 480Mpbs data transfer rates did their magic, and all we had to do was connect the two USB cables!

Let's put it this way:

You need a USB extension cable. And you don't want to get stuck with a useless one.

Active extension cables are "top of the line" so to speak, and work with everything!

This one is only $22.97 for a limited time only!

Grab it and never suffer from short cables again!
