    What makes you think it might charge it faster? The longer the cable length, the less current will reach the end due to the natural resistance of copper, however small that is.

    So the fastest charging cable will be the shortest you can find. This 10ft cable will charge much slower than the standard one.

    I have a similar 10ft cable which while plugged into my iPad 3, charges it slowly, but if I'm using it at the same time, the charge rate is about the same as the usage rate, so it doesn't charge it, but it prevents the battery from draining further during use, maintaining the charge level, it'll gain a percent or two very very slowly if the screen brightness isn't too high.
