AmazonBasics USB 2.0 Extension Cable #1
What is this?
An extension cord for a USB cable.
Why did I buy it?
I purchased this cable because I wanted to use a webcam in conjunction with my projector to video chat, but needed it to be several feet away from the computer in order to work. The cable that came with the webcam was short, and after a quick Amazon search I realized that I needed a USB extension cable.
Since then I have used it for a variety of other reasons, but just having it around is incredibly convenient. Much like an extension cable for electricity, sometimes you just need a few extra feet to make something work.
