    Hello and welcome to the Forum. If you searched the threads you will find numerous links where you can get a 3.0 male/female USB extension. They are readily available and inexpensive. Be sure you get a 3.0 as the standard 2.0 will not work.

    As Jeffrey has already replied, USB 3.0 cables do work.

    If you're in the U.S. and an Amazon Prime member, you can pick up a 6' cable that I confirm works for 7.99 (free shipping with Prime)

    Welcome to the forum!!! As Jeffrey stated get yourself a USB 3.0 extension. Check Monoprice for excellent prices and service.

    I think he's referring to a standard extension cord, such as you would use on a lamp or any electrical device in a house. Sure cheaper generally compared to computer cables

    Not a good alternative, especially when on the go.

    I got a USB 3.0 Extension cord for less than $5 from Monoprice. Much better than an extension cord IMO. Amazon and Newegg also have reasonable prices if you do not trust Monoprice.

    I just use a 5' power extension cord that I already had. When you live in a home that was built in the 1920's you're used to improvising when it comes to power outlets lol!
