Product Highlights
  • SuperSpeed USB 3.0
  • Tethering Cable

The 16' TetherPro USB 3.0 Active Extension Cable (Black) from Tether Tools is a tethering cable which offers fast and reliable transfer of images and data. The TetherPro Premium SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Extension Cable is an active extension device that allows for longer tethering distances without worrying about signal errors or corrupt data transfers.

Up to four active USB extensions and one passive 15' (4.57 m) USB can be daisy-chained together for a total of 80' (24.38 m), thus avoiding any drop-off in signals.

With the TetherPro USB 3.0 Extension Cable, signals and data transfers going in and out of the cable are buffered to ensure consistent signal quality, meeting USB's highest electrical and timing specifications.

The set-up is simple, you just need to plug the male end of the Active Extension Cable into your computer and then plug your camera or other device's USB cable into the female end of this Extension Cable so the repeater is closest to the device and not the computer. For longer distances, you can simply insert additional Active Extension increments into the chain to achieve the needed distance.

                  I got this to replace some lost tether cables. I've always used the iogear USB 2.0 powered extension as a tether cable. I have a new MBP with USB 3.0 and thought I'd try this out. I haven't had the opportunity to see how well it works for a 3.0 USB device yet. Seems OK, it's a bit more expensive than other so I'll see how well it holds up.

                          Excellent transfer speed - quality construction - choose this one (the active extension cable) to tether a range of camera brands and types using the proprietary tether cable that came with the camera plugged in to this - the TT Active extension cable - and then the TT into your computer.

                          Backwards compatible with USB2 - this USB3 is fast and well made.

                              I have a Blue Snowball USB condenser mic that I move around alot to record various things (vocals, drums, etc...) and my existing usb cables weren't long enough.for a while i was getting by with putting a powered hub in between, but i felt like the hub was adding to my latency a bit -- felt like i was experiencing more drop outs and what-not. so now i've been using this active cable and it works great... seems a little pricey for what it is, but it works!
