A working usb extender – 5M USB Power-Boost Extension Cable Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

It provides enough power and indeed has a chip in the black box which repeats the usb data and makes it operate over longer cables. You can basically have 10 meters with this if you have 5 of cable on the other side of the black box in the cable!
The plastic cover breaks easily. (definitely doesnt handle stepping on it) Probably can't be used outdoors since the repeater is not water tight, but nowhere does it say you could :)
Good cable, good connectors. Nicely built and definitely long enough.
If you need usb extension this is what you want.
