Having looked into your query, I can confirm that the Belkin USB Extension Cable - 1.8m will be able to extend your current USB cable that you use between your scanner and laptop. However, you could not use this product alone to do it as 1 end of the cable is for extension purposes only.
HI Marty, This cable is an extension cable, rather than a USB cable. One end is a standard USB, and the other is a connection to plug a Micro USB into, rather than a Micro USB itself. To replace your existing cable, you would need a Micro USB Data Cable. Hope this helps.
