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. …

Monopolizing the iPhone charger market
My wife and I have gone through numerous charger cords I know why you don't change your charger cord. you want people to have to My wife and I have gone through numerous charger cords I know why you don't change your charger cord. you want people to have to buy your terrible designed cords that break and lose their charge after so long. my wife purchased another brand that suppose to charge iPhones but, the charge was very slow. I have friends who have Samsung and LG phones and to my knowledge they don't have this problems with theirs. so like I said I know why you don't change your design but, if you want to keep customers please design a better cord that won't tear apart and kink very easily. …
