I need a longer one: 5-6 ft for charging and a shorter one 6"-1 ft for connecting to my MacBook for syncing and updating. Don't know why this hasn't been done much sooner!

  • 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.

    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.

I don't even wind any cables while I store them away (but rather accordion it). This cable still gets "knotted" over time near the connecters somehow. I have done my own troubleshooting and have discovered the following: The cable seems to get knotted regardless of what I do. The last one ever since it went from the 30 pin to the lightening also began splaying and tearing right at the knot. Observing my use, it seems that because the lightening connector "grab" area is much smaller than the previous 30 pin connector "grab" area, I tended to pull the cord out more by the cable than the connector "grab" area. Over time, this turned into a splayed mess. Apple stated that they will replace any cables that begin to knot while on warranty. They replaced mine and so I'm a happy camper. I will give this 3 stars because they replaced it without fussing about...but the actual cable is a 1 star. :/

For those of you who are more anal-retentive than the res This is one of the main reasons I am getting a Galaxy 5 my next upgrade. For those of you who are more anal-retentive than the rest of us: I never had to use extra care with micro-USB or 30 pins. I shouldn't have to be gentle with my cable because Apple is going downhill in quality. Other reasons I'm ditching the glitch and making the switch: iOS 7 barred us for using lightning cables of superior quality because they aren't authorized; that God-awful U2 album you gave me without asking; and Bendgate. Apple, your quality and practices are turning away even the die-hards. Get it together. Are you nothing without Jobs?
