they do make these... but I am not sure where you can get one. I got one that is about 10 inches, I got just so that my Bluetooth adapter can sit on my desk instead of under.

We sell them all time at work.

USB 2.0 Extension A-A Male to Female Cable.
Normally sold in 2m, 3m and 5m lenths.

I would not bother with anything beyond 2 meters as USB can only travel a total 5 meters with out the assistance of an Active USB Repeater.

And prices for an Active Repeater USB1.1 or USB2.0 not worth the expence.

I got a few.

KEYBOARD, MOUSE, PDA, and a SPARE ONE just incase I need to plug some thing else in.
I have an old (4 years old) full tower case with no front panel USB
