Extension cables


Sometimes your cable's just aren't long enough. to solve that problem you can purchase extension cables.

You just have to make sure that the cable you purchase supports what you need. For example, an extension cable for a pen tablet is very easy to Purchas because a pen tablet doesn't require much power or data. However, if you want to use an USB-C extension cable for a pen display, you may need to ensure that is supports sending enough power or a display signal depending on hwo you intend to use the cable.

To better understand the needs of connecting a pen display see: Connecting a pen display.

The extension cable I use for pen displays

I use a 2 foot UseBean USB-C Extension cable. This product has worked well for me. I have run up to 4K@60Hz using this extension cable.

I used it in these ways:

  • With a Huion Kamvas 22 Plus: I connect it to the USB-C end of a Huion 3-in-1 cable.

  • With Wacom Cintiq Pro 16 (DTH-167): I connect it to the the USB-C cable that came with the Cintiq.


Be aware of how deeply the port is housed in the pen display

The specific USB-C extender above has a USB-port that fits into some pen displays, but some other pen displays have their USB-C port deeper inside and this cable cannot fit into those areas.

For example, this extender does NOT go deep enough to fit into a Huion Kamvas 13.
