The Iogear 39' (11 m) USB 2.0 Booster Extension Cable uses active electronics to amplify the USB signal beyond the USB 2.0 specification of 15' (4.5 m). It does this with no loss of data integrity. The Iogear USB 2.0 Booster Extension Cable extends from the host and provides another female "A" connector for longer distance USB needs.

The cable is transparent to the host and the device and it is compatible with any O/S or USB accessory. It is ideal for applications that require distance, for example placing a printer in the office or home where more users have easier access. The cable is plug-and-play and requires no additional drivers to set up. The solution can also give you the ability to daisy-chain a maximum of three cables together in order to reach up to a total of 117' (35 m) of USB high speed connection.

      First of all when I was told that I could only use a 10 foot extention USB cabel or I would loose data on the transfer. That meant that my laptop would be right beside me when I shoot in teather mode,that ment no movment. I saw this on Scott Kelby's web suite as part of the gear that he uses. I looked into it further and found that you can join three cabels together for a 117 ft. with no data transfer lose that gives me alot of room to move around. I don't like cabels around my camera but the cost of a wireless transmitter $800. or 3 cabels [$] for the the amount that I would use the wireless the cost is not justified. I am impressed with this product I couldn't waite to try it out. It takes less then 3 seconds on my desktop and less then 4 seconds for my laptop with no data lose.I shoot in raw and used a Nikon D3X my D3S should be faster. I purchased 1 the first time and now I have purchased the second one. 78 ft. gives me lots movment.

      It did not work with Canon 5d m3 and Mac

      I have tried it with the the USB cable packaged with the canon 5d m3 connecting camera to laptop and it did not work. Used two other cables, still same problem. Money wasted!

        Comments about IOGEAR 39' (11 m) USB 2.0 Booster Extension Cable:

        This cable's first use was at a photo booth this weekend, where a large number of strangers spent seven hours walking on it. It's fine, and never missed a beat all day. No dropped data, no disconnection, and only mild scuffing on the cable jacket.

        There's a lock feature built into the socket, but it only works with specific IOGear cables. Nice, bout it would have been perfect if it could mate with any USB cable.

          Comments about IOGEAR 39' (11 m) USB 2.0 Booster Extension Cable:

          This successfully transmitted a signal from a medical device that 6 other online products could not do, helped me tremendously save face with my customer, and if this didn't exist don't know what I would have done. I recommended this to the manufacturer of the device itself. Special circuitry or something this has to transmit the signal, when others the signal dies! Fantastic product.

                We use this product in our office to connect the printer to the computer. I don't really have any problems with it.

                I don't know if this applies only to my printer, but the thing I found annoying is that the USB end of the cable I needed to stick in the printer did not directly connect- the USB on the cord and the port on my printer did not match up. There needed to be another USB (sold separately) that could be used to connect them.

                  This has worked beautifully for tethering my 5Dmk2 to my MacBook Pro during studio shoots.
                  The freedom to move while still tethered has been liberating.

                  I have tried cheaper brands and they have failed very quickly.

                  This has been going strong for a while now and has a warranty that puts my mind at ease.

                  I'm very glad I purchased this.

                    This extension cable is the best out there. Do not trust cheap @wannabes, I tried them. This thing is running between my house and detached garage for a woktenna. I ran it inside pvc piping between my structures for weathering here in Houston,TX and it's bare inside garage to the back. Still working flawlessly for almost 2 years, 16 hours a day. Superb quality!

                                I love the product and will always buy product from B@H. I have never won any thing in my life; but It would really help if I won a 1000.00 dollars to in crease my photo supplies and to add to lower my over all cost for my next major purchase. THANK YOU

                                  Got this for use with my c910 webcam as part of a multicam setup. It works just fine. I will probably get one or two more.

                                      I have a USB web cam on a 6 ft cable at the end of this 39 ft extension cable and it works fine. I was impressed with the free delivery which was to be 2 to 5 days. It arrived about 9am on the second day.

                                        If you shoot tethered, do not screw around, buy this cable.

                                              We tried a USB extension that used RJ45 but the throughput was not enough to send HD video via a webcam. This extension works great. We recently purchased 2 more to daisy chain and run a HD webcam in a conference room. Works perfectly.

                                                Comments about IOGEAR 39' (11 m) USB 2.0 Booster Extension Cable:

                                                First of all when I was told that I could only use a 10 foot extention USB cabel or I would loose data on the transfer. That meant that my laptop would be right beside me when I shoot in teather mode,that ment no movment. I saw this on Scott Kelby's web suite as part of the gear that he uses. I looked into it further and found that you can join three cabels together for a 117 ft. with no data transfer lose that gives me alot of room to move around. I don't like cabels around my camera but the cost of a wireless transmitter $800. or 3 cabels [$] for the the amount that I would use the wireless the cost is not justified. I am impressed with this product I couldn't waite to try it out. It takes less then 3 seconds on my desktop and less then 4 seconds for my laptop with no data lose.I shoot in raw and used a Nikon D3X my D3S should be faster. I purchased 1 the first time and now I have purchased the second one. 78 ft. gives me lots movment.
