Charging iPhone 5 with USB Extension Cable?

Hi,

Are there any risks with charging an iPhone 5 with a USB (Female to Male) extension cable? I'm charging it straight from the wall socket, and it charges fine, but I'm wondering if it can damage my iPhone.

Thanks.

No damage from my experience but it took longer to charge.
