      TOO SHORT

      I would like to see Apple offer multiple length options with this cable. I need a longer one: 5-6 ft for charging and a shorter one 6"-1 ft for connecting to my I would like to see Apple offer multiple length options with this cable.

      horrible

      ive had this for just over 3 months and the cable near the lightning end is all scrunched up and now it won't charge my phone unless i spend 5 minutes maneuveri ive had this for just over 3 months and the cable near the lightning end is all scrunched up and now it won't charge my phone unless i spend 5 minutes maneuvering the phone into a specific position so that it will charge and then i can't even touch it otherwise it will disconnect. i like the idea of the lightning over the 30 pin, but in terms of quality and implementation, i am very disappointed by this piece of s product i received.

      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 are about 3.5 feet long. Abo 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.

      Dreadful Product

      Only Apple would be arrogant enough to design a cable like this. The strain relief on the cable ends is clearly inadequate, as cable after cable fails. I suspec Only Apple would be arrogant enough to design a cable like this. The strain relief on the cable ends is clearly inadequate, as cable after cable fails. I suspect it's designed exactly as Apple intends, so all us iPhone/iPad suckers are forced to buy new cables on a semi-regular basis.

      Vastly better than other competitors

I skipped 1 or 2 of the S versions of the phone but for the most part I try to stay with the newest model. The cable has always worked great for me. I currently have 3 lighting cables from previous phones. They all work great. My oldest one is starting to come apart but it's around 3 years old. I have never had a problem with charging slow or plugging in the cable to my phone. Just so you get a feel for how I use my cables. I like to have multiple cables for charging throughout my house and in my car. I'm constantly on the phone for hours at a time so I need to essentially be connected to a charger throughout the day. I've used many other brands of cables and they are not even close to the quality of Apple's cable. No other cable has lasted more than 1 year without falling apart. I'm at the point where I exclusively by Apple cables. They are not perfect but much better than any of the competitors. As far as the length is concerned, I think it's perfect. Any longer and it would be a mess. However, Apple does offer longer cables.
