I am have a move round in my 'Home Office' & need 2X
USB Extension Cable - Type A Male to Type A Female at leat 5m. I would prefer it 7m if I can hold of one.
I have a look round with google & have only found 5m, but thats pushing it.

Does anyone know where in the UK I can get a USB Extension Cable - Type A Male to Type A Female 7m or more?

Cheers

You can get mail-> female links. Buy three x three metre ones and you have nine metres - should be plenty for what you want.

It is said that there is signal loss with long cables. Be aware of this.

for 5m or longer you really need a "usb repeater" to avoid signal loss.

5m ordinary usb extension or normal cables do however exist and i have 2 spare 5m ordinary cables and 3m extension leads if they are any help. i have one 5m repeater cable and am not using it anymore. i used it with a 3m ordinary extension lead to make 8m in total (plus 1.8m on the usb device cable) and it worked fine on a host powered scanner
