USB-C extension cable doesn't work

Post by Jeff H »

I have a Selore hub to use on my USB-C port to connect VGA, 3 USB-A inputs (plus 3 video ports I don’t use). The USB-C cable from the hub is only 7”, so I bought a USB-C extension. It’s a "6 foot type C USB 3.1(10Gbps) Extension Cable Charging & Sync Compatible", brand name Urelegan (Amazon).

Trouble is it works for the VGA, but not for my corded mouse, external HD, or flashdrive. All those things work well together without the extension.

I’m going to return it, but is there something I need to know about how to choose an extension that will work?
