Overview

Tripp Lite's 16-ft. USB 2.0 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 16ft. 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 80ft. by daisy-chaining up to 5 of these active cables. The U026-016 provides up to 150mA of power to the connected device. If your device requires more than 150mA of power, it will either need to have its own power supply or need to be plugged into a powered USB 2.0 hub (such as U222-004-R) that is connected to the U026-016. Use a standard 6' 10' or 15' USB cable to reach the desired distance.

Features

  • Extend a USB 2.0 signal passed the 16 ft. (5 m.) distance limitation
  • Works together with standard USB 2.0 cables
  • Bus powered signal booster
  • Daisychain up to 5 cables to extend the signal up to 80 ft. passed the 16 ft. (5 m.) distance limitation
  • The U026-016 provides up to 150mA of power to the connected device. If your device requires more than 150mA of power, it will either need to have its own power supply; or, to be plugged into a powered USB 2.0 hub (such as U222-004-R) that is connected to the U026-016.

System Requirements

  • A USB 2.0 port and USB 2.0 device are required to achieve USB 2.0 speeds. A USB 1.1 port and/or device can be used, but you will not be able to achieve USB 2.0 speeds.
  • The U026-016 provides up to 150mA of power to the connected device. If your device requires more than 150mA of power, it will either need to have its own power supply; or, to be plugged into a powered USB 2.0 hub (such as U222-004-R) that is connected to the U026-016.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most mobile devices use USB cables to recharge their batteries. A USB 2.0 cable can provide up to 2.5 watts of power, sufficient to charge a phone or tablet. The new USB Power Delivery specification can provide up to 100 watts and it’s bi-directional, so a device can send or receive power. So, assuming a laptop requires a 60 watts charge, it could mean the end of bulky power adapters and proprietary charging cables. This available wattage will depend on the hardware and on the capabilities of the cable selected.

Additional FAQs may be available on the U026016 model support page.
