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. …

Cheap and terrible!

I'm getting a new phone in two weeks and I am really debating on if it will be worth my sanity to get an iPhone 6 because of the l I'm getting a new phone in two weeks and I am really debating on if it will be worth my sanity to get an iPhone 6 because of the lightning charger. I've had my iPhone 5 for 2 1/2 years and I've gone through 4 official Apple brand lightning chargers and countless cheap chargers bought online. It is beyond ridiculously how easily these chargers break. I can go 3-4 months with a charger before it just stops charging my phone. And it's not like the cheap "non-official" chargers are any better. Bought one literally a month ago and it stopped working just the other day. It is very frustrating to the stupid notice that says "this accessory is not compatible." Apple needs to do something about these chargers. It makes no sense to have to pay $20 every couple of months for a new charger. I guess it's time to switch phone brands until Apple can release a better quality product. …
