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. …

I can't believe that when I buy one of Apple's flagship products like my iPad Air 2 it comes with this totally inadiquate cable. I can't believe that when I buy one of Apple's flagship products like my iPad Air 2 it comes with this totally inadiquate cable. The cable quit on me after just 1 week.
So I ordered some considerably better quality cables from 3rd parties only to find out that Apple have done something to prevent these cables from working. It's just ridicules. If you're going to stop high quality cables from working with your product then you need to make your products with that level of high quality.
It’s like buying a Ferrari then fitting it with the wheels of a 1970’s Lada. …

Constant source of problems, frustration and added expense!
They quit charging our phones after 3-6 months. I have four iPhones that use the lightning cable and I must have purchased 20 addi They quit charging our phones after 3-6 months. I have four iPhones that use the lightning cable and I must have purchased 20 additional cables over the past 18 months. I've purchased Apple and numerous knock offs, including The Friendly Swede with lifetime warranty, but they all go bad after a short time. It took three email exchanges and me sending them pictures to get a replacement with The Friendly Swede, so I gave up getting a warranty replacement when the others from them went bad.
There must be something wrong with the design for ALL of the manufacturers to have so much trouble building something that will last. I was considering switching from iPhone anyway, but the constant problems and added expense associated with these cables has pushed me over the edge. I think I will switch my family to something else when I upgrade our phones. …
