What is and where can I find the longest cable mentioned in the title. Longest I could find was 16'4" (5m) (external link). Is that the longest they make?

You could always use a USB extension!

5 meters is the maximum length cable allowed by the USB spec (external link).

Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

You can also maybe use a USB to Cat5 Balun.

How long do you need to go?

You can use repeaters with a series of USB cables. I've managed four OK - ie 20m.

I was actually just hoping to keep my options open. A 16 footer should do for what I want but I was wondering if there wasa a long cable I could buy and just make a giant service loop if I needed to go longer.

I use something like this all the time

I can go several hundred feet without troubles usually but for some odd reason not all of the Baluns work with every USB port to be extended?

I have to carry 2 or 3 different models on the truck to be sure I have one that will work on any given job.

I can't really explain it but when I get the right one they work fine.
