What is maximum distance between the two USB-A ...

What is maximum distance between the two USB-A sockets? And the key question, will that work in an airliner to draw power from USB sockets in two seats?..
Asked by: Vadim
The approximate distance between the 2 USB-A connectors of this cable is 3 feet. This distance should allow the user to plug-in each USB-A connector to a power source without straining the cable. While USB-A voltage should always be 5-volts, we cannot comment on the current that is available at each USB-A port of the airline equipment is use, as this probably varies per airplane. As an alternative, you might consider a USB-C-to-USB-C cable along with a portable USB-C power bank / battery.

So, do the two USB-A connectors plug into those on a PC and the USB-C end plug into the recorder to power it? If so, could I use this with an external USB powerpack that has two USB-A out connections to power the recorder and phantom powered external mics for a period of several hours? (Instead of using Sony L-mount batteries?)
Asked by: Ross
Hi Ross, You are correct: the two USB-A connectors would plug into your computer and the USB-C end will connect to your MixPre 3/6 to power it. Yes you can also use a USB Powerpack to power your MixPre-3/6. Just in case here are additional powering options for your reference: https://www.sounddevices.com/tech-notes/mixpre-3-mixpre-6-powering-options Thanks!
