10ft IPad cables

I keep trying to find some of the 10ft 30pin>USB cables that will work reliably with my iPAD, as well as 10ft Lightning>USB for my iPad Mini. Has anybody found any? I see a lot of cheap ones on ebay, but the reviews on most of them are not very good. As much as I hate to say it, I would even pay Apple prices if I could find some, but it looks like they are not available even via the Apple store. Thx.

Why not just use an extension cable? I started using this one and all of my family members requested I order them one as well. We've had no problems.

I agree with this. I use a standard USB (Male -> Female) extension cable. It has worked well every device I have ever had.

My mother-in-law came to visit recently & had a 15 foot 30-pin cable with her. It looked to be good quality. The plastic ends were not cheap looking and the cable was pretty thick.

Good call! I actually had never thought of that, makes perfect sense. I do appreciate it.
