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. …

Disposable cable, non-disposable price
I've been through three Apple brand lightning cables this year, and they keep breaking. I plug them in carefully, and make sure to I've been through three Apple brand lightning cables this year, and they keep breaking. I plug them in carefully, and make sure to never pull them out by the cords. I'm super mindful, almost reverent of how delicate they are, and still, they manage to break somewhere inside the cable and stop charging my devices. I love my iphone, and I'd like to keep using Apple's products in the future, but the lightning cable is GARBAGE. My knockoff cable cost me $8, and lasted the same amount of time, so I'm not sure the real deal is even worth the cost anymore. Shame on you, Apple. Have you seen the reviews of this product? There are over 1000 1 star reviews for this product. Get it together, Apple! And while you're at it, your ear buds never stay in my ears. …

My wife and I both upgraded from 4 and 4S respectively to 5C. The phone is fine, the recharging cable it the PITTS! The plastic My wife and I both upgraded from 4 and 4S respectively to 5C. The phone is fine, the recharging cable it the PITTS! The plastic on the connector is cracked, and the rubber on the cable is split and bunched up. I might be able to understand this if I rough-handled the product...but I don't. I am very careful. After reading all the reviews it is obvious that this is a poor product. I just looked at the replacement price of $20 and consider this a scam. Apple should recall the product and provide a new, re-designed cable at their own expense.
PLEASE, FIX IT, APPLE! …
