    I really don't want to get caught up in buying a crappy aftermarket lightning cable that destroys my iPad. Are there any reliable manufacturers that sell a longer lightning cable? Does Apple make one?

    Thanks for the reply, I just checked out the apple store and there's 32 one star reviews... Not a good sign. Maybe I'd be better off buying an extension cord for home use.

    I use a generic USB extension cable. It has worked well.

    My cousin uses a longer one so she can keep her toddler's iPad charged in the backseat to keep them quiet on a drive...

    She just got some USB extension cable to plug into her usb car charger...she had to use a cigarette lighter one though...since the built in one was just too slow...

    But then sometimes there are areas where you wish there was an outlet...

    I just got 5 generic lightning to 39 pin adapters on amazon for $10 and they only charge no music or sync. You get what you pay for.

    I bought a supposedly Apple certified cable from groupon, less than two weeks later it just stopped working. Ugh
