I've been looking for a standard 30-pin charge/sync cable that is a bit longer than the ones Apple provides (between 1.5m and 2m would be perfect).

I've already purchased several of these on eBay and all of them are either:

a) very crappy quality (ie: connectors are a "snap together" design that falls apart within a few weeks of use), or

b) are not actually capable of charging an iPad from a wall charger as they don't provide enough current.

Looking are reviews on Amazon it looks like many of the cables sold there suffer from these same problems.

Can anyone recommend a good quality 30-pin cable supplier in the UK? Must be capable of *charging* an iPad 2/3 from a 10w wall charger!

Just get a USB extension cord and use the existing quality Apple cable.

Some USB extension cables don't work with the ipad 3 & maybe 4

I had to get a long 30 pin cable for my ipad 3 ,search amazon & read the newest reviews
