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. …

Very Poor Quality :(
Before I begin whining, I'd just like to point out that I didn't even want to rate this cable 1 star but I had to in order to post Before I begin whining, I'd just like to point out that I didn't even want to rate this cable 1 star but I had to in order to post this review, which is a joke, just like this cable.
I am SO disappointed in Apple's ability to create a more sturdy and better quality phone charger. I've had my phone for 4 months (4 months!!!) and I've already had to replace the charger. You'd think with all of the money that Apple has made, they'd invest a little more in this product and create a more reliable charger, to show a bit of appreciation for their customers. I am annoyed beyond words. I hate when companies take shortcuts with important products, such as a charger to keep the phone working. I want to cut the cable of my chargers and mail them to Apple's headquarters. Like, seriously, this is a slap in the face. " That's right guys! Just keep buying our $30 chargers if you want to charge your phone. " Unfreakingbelievable.
Apple, why don't you stop bringing out new (and redundant) products everyday and spend more time creating a new and improved "Lightning to USB Cable".....I don't want to hear about another new Apple product until you Ifolks get this cable together. This cable needs to be longer and sturdier. I've had way cheaper phones and never had to replace the charger. This is ridiculous. …
