Verified to be 3.5 foot long cable - works with existing wall and car plugs
I just received my shipment of 3 of these cables directly from China. I measured my cables to be exactly 42 inches long. So they I just received my shipment of 3 of these cables directly from China. I measured my cables to be exactly 42 inches long. So they are about 3.5 feet long. About the same as previous Apple charging cables. Really, Apple should make them all 6ft long, which is why I am giving this 4 stars.
Since 3.5 feet is not usually long enough for most uses, search amazon for "white USB extension" from C2G in 3ft, 6ft or 9ft extension cables for about $2 to $5 dollars, which can then be put in between the wall power brick (or car port adapter) and this cable.
Existing power transformers with a USB jack on them (for home or car power port) that worked with your iPhone 3gs, 4 or 4s, should work fine with this new cable and the iPhone 5. 1 amp (1a = 5 watts) is standard for iPhones. 2 amp (2a = 10 watts) is standard for iPads. But it's well known, that if you buy 2 amp (10w) power plug then your iPhone 5 will charge in about 60% of the time. I like the PowerGen brand 10w chargers from amazon for $10. …

SOOO Much Smaller & Better!!!
Yes, they changed the connector. Yes it's kind of a hassle. But that's progress for you & I prefer this cable. No more fumbling in Yes, they changed the connector. Yes it's kind of a hassle. But that's progress for you & I prefer this cable. No more fumbling in the dark - it just slides right in the right way every time. Apple does need to get a few more in the stores though. But love the new cable and love the new design. …

Worst cable ever but great customer service!
These lightning cables are honestly the worst quality cables ever. The end of the wire that attaches to the lightning tip gets wo These lightning cables are honestly the worst quality cables ever. The end of the wire that attaches to the lightning tip gets worn out after only 2-3 months use. The cables just simply stop working! I have been through, no lie, around 10. Thankfully, Apple customer service is top notch and has replaced mine every time they have failed. I actually got 2 replaced today, hence my review. I read online a possible "fix" that I tried as soon as I got back to work after leaving the Apple Store. Get a pen that clicks (has a spring in it), take the tiny spring out and wrap it around the end of the cable. Make sure to wrap it around the raised half inch plastic connector too so the spring won't move. The spring prevents the cable from bending in the critical spot that always ends up failing. It looks kind of ghetto but who cares if it keeps me from having to replace my cable in 2 months. Hope this helps others! If i can remember, I'll update this post in a few months and let you know how it is holding up. …
