ALFA USB 3.0 Extension Cable 16 Feet (5m) Type A Male to Female


Pickup available at 2251 NW 41st Street

Usually ready in 1 hour

ALFA AUSBC-5m-3 is a 5m (16 feet) USB 3.0 extension cable. This is designed for use with our USB 3.0 capable USB devices including ALFA AWUS036AC, AWUS036ACH, and AWUS1900. This is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 devices. This has special shielding to insulate against power loss- you will notice out of the package it is quite a bit thicker than standard USB cables.

Why having a USB 3 extension cable is important if you are extending a USB 3 device:

USB 2.0 ports and cables limit data speed to a maximum of 480 mbps. This is fine for 802.11n Wi-Fi devices that communicate no faster than 300 mbps. But for today's newer 802.11ac Wi-Fi receivers like ALFA's AWUS1900 USB 3 Wi-Fi USB adapter, which transmits up to 1900 mbps, you need a USB 3.0 compatible extension cable. USB 3 cables allow for data transfer up to 5 Gbps, so you can take advantage of the full speed of your device. If you use a USB 2.0 extension with AWUS1900 instead, your data throughput will be limited to 480 mbps.

AUSBC-5m-3 can be used with any USB 2 or USB 3 device including printers and keyboards. But it is most advisable for use with our high speed USB Wi-Fi receivers from ALFA Network, or other manufacturers such as D-Link and Netgear, to ensure you are getting full speed from your Wi-Fi device. This allows you to place your USB device up to 16 feet away from the computer. If your computer is located away from a window, use this cable to put your Wi-Fi adapter closer to the window for improved reception.

Bulk/High Value Order Returns

For non-defective returns over $500, a restocking fee may be deducted from the refund to cover bank or card processing fees.
