2 What’s spe­cial about this USB ca­ble is the fi­bre op­tic tech in­side it, let­ting you place a self-pow­ered de­vice far­ther from your Mac than is usual – ei­ther 10, 15, 30 or 50m, de­pend­ing on the depth of your wal­let due to the tech­nol­ogy’s ex­pense. You might spend that much if you have great yet noisy stor­age for au­dio or video pro­duc­tion that you want to put out of earshot. At the de­vice end, the ca­ble has a fe­male USB-A re­cep­ta­cle for con­nect­ing your de­vice’s nor­mal ca­ble – a smart de­sign, since it then doesn’t mat­ter what USB type is on the de­vice it­self. Alan Stone­bridge A well thought-out way to en­sure de­vices don’t have to be sit­u­ated within earshot – but you’ll pay hand­somely for the priv­i­lege.
