The maximum length a USB cable can extend for a printer depends on several factors, such as the quality of the cable, the USB version, and the power requirements of the printer. In general, the maximum length for a USB cable is 5 meters (16 feet and 5 inches) for USB 2.0 and earlier versions, and 3 meters (9 feet and 10 inches) for USB 3.0 and later versions. However, using a cable longer than the maximum length can cause signal degradation and power loss, which can result in poor printer performance or even failure to function. In such cases, using a USB hub or an active USB cable can help boost the signal strength and extend the cable length beyond the maximum limit.
