The optical cable is compatible with existing USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports on cameras, storage devices, printers, displays and other peripherals. The longest USB 3.0 copper cables extend to 10 meters, but have different connectors and built-in signal repeaters to extend data transfers. They retail at 110$ for cable type A-to-A. Standard USB 3.0 A-to-A copper cables mostly extend to 3 meters, are under $10 on Amazon.
