Pros

  • The USB 3.0 cable is 32 Feet long, so you have a lot flexibility on where yo want to place the cable
  • Cable has a DC power port and come with a power adapter for higher power usage devices
  • The cable itself is very tough

Cons

  • The cable only has a single USB 3.0 Port

There are a few devices that we use still use a cable to operate in this wireless world, and one of the setbacks that most of us encounter is a cable not being long enough. This can cause problems if you’re trying to place a specific device where you want it to be, especially if it’s a wired device that you’re actively using, such as a VR headset.

In this review, we’re taking a quick look at this Alxum Active USB 3.0 extension cable that is 32-feet long and comes with a power adapter.

Uses:

Alright, despite its highly long length, this Alxum USB 3.0 cable is easy to use. You simply plug the cable into a USB 3.0 port, and you can plug your device into the Alxum cable’s USB 3.0 port. The line’s data transfer speed is 5Gbps, which is the standard; you also won’t lose momentum with the device you have connected to the cable. The cable itself has a 900mA power usage; if the device you’re connecting to requires more power to function, the Alxum cable comes with a 5V/2.0A (10W) power adapter plug into the cable’s power input port.

Our test used the HP Windows Mixed Reality headset, a device that you would need a long length cable to use because with VR gaming you need space and freedom to move around. The Alxum cable provided more than enough length for free movement without worrying about tugging on any wires. When it did come to using the VR headset, we had to use the 5V/2.0A power adapter as the HP Windows VR headset requires more power than the USB 3.0 cable can provide.

Build Quality

This cable’s build quality is outstanding; it has two built-in chips that ensure no line disruption. The triple shielded cable also protects from EMI and RFI for better conductivity. You can bend this cable all you want, and there’s no way that it’s going to get damaged.

Conclusion:

If you need a long USB 3.0 cable to run throughout your house, or if you need it for specific devices such as a VR headset, we recommend this Alxum USB 3.0 extension cable that is 32 feet long. The line even has a 10W DC power input port that lets you connect devices and have them work that would otherwise not work without the DC port.
