USB Adapters

I have a Wyze Cam v2 camera and needed to extend the power cable due to the location relative to the power source. So, I bought one of Wyze’s 20’ extension cables. Arrrgh! It comes with standard USB 1.1 connectors, which obviously don’t mate with the mini-A USB connector and socket on the camera. Where can I find adapters to make this cable work?

??? That cable is supposed to work with V2, V3, V4 and others. I used one on a V3. I plugged the male end into the power adapter then plugged the original provided V3 Cable USB A end into the female end of the 20 foot ext.
Plug the USB A male end of your original V2 Power cable into the female end of the 20Ft. :grin:

It doesn’t. The camera has a mini-USB connector. The extender cable has regular USB connectors on both ends. Mini-USB to regular USB and adapters are required.

The power cable that came with the camera does not have one USB A end that plugs into the power adapter like this? Plug your existing cable into the camera then connect it to the extension.

Slide the cover over one cable before connecting.

No, the camera has a micro-USB on it - not a mini-USB connector.

My bad, guys. I was focusing on the wrong end of the cable. Of course, the USB connector on the 110 VAC plug is the place to focus a cable extender. Thanks for the replies.


Hope you got all connected.
