Joe from West Hollywood, CA
Sabrent USB Hub

Joe has a USB touch monitor. How can he plug it into a power adapter to go over 15" away from his computer? Leo says that the biggest challenge may be the length of your cable. Monoprice sells one that's 32' long and has a dongle on it that amplifies the signal. You'll also need a USB hub that can get you the power, but you may lose too much signal to get the data.
