Tripp lite’s 65-feet USB 2.0 active extension cable is a bus powered extension cable that can be used to increase the length of a device cable without the worry of signal loss and potential performance problems. USB limits a cable’s length to 16 Feet. Any length above 16 Feet requires the use of an active cable such as this one. This cable has a signal booster built in. The overall cable length can be extended up to 131 Feet by daisy chaining up to 2 of these active cables.
