Sometimes it’s the little luxuries that feel the best. Like a great burger, or a big shower—or a USB cable long enough that you don’t have to worry about rolling over in bed and unplugging it.

Extension cables are great because they’re so universal. Sure, you could replace every single cable you use with one that’s 10 feet long, but think about how many cables that is: at least one each for your phone, computer, tablet, camera, headphones, speakers, smartwatch, game console and controllers...the list goes on. Instead, just grab an extension and use it as you need it.

You may notice a few different USB types in extension cables. USB-A is the older (but still the most popular) version, that rectangular one that has to be plugged in right-side up. But there are different versions of USB-A; look for USB-A 3.0, the newest and fastest version—these are usually blue inside. Don’t worry about compatibility, since it’s backwards-compatible with older versions of USB-A.

One thing you don’t have to worry about with USB extension cables is compatibility. They’ll work with any operating system you can throw at them—Windows, Mac and Linux—and will be compatible with any wall charger. But you will generally lose some power with longer cables, so these are best for gadgets that don’t require all that much power to begin with.
