Very selective device – 5M USB Power-Boost Extension Cable Reviews

posted by djdfy on 11/27/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Good build quality
- Shield cable
- USB 2.0 compliant, copy from my usb-flash shows at least 18 MiB/s
Cons:
- It overheats and turns off when connecting my working Huawey E1550 GPRS modem. Well, that modem has problems with passive extenders also.
- It overheats and turns off when connecting wireless receiver from my Oclick 404MW optical mouse.
Other:
Looks like this cable and SKU-55612 use same chip, but I have no problems with latter.
Bottomline:
Works with not any USB device.
Maybe I received a defective item.
