I need to charge my phone while driving between jobs just to make it through the day. Is everyone carrying their lightning cable with them?

I leave a spare in my office and plug my phone in during the day. I did this with all my phones, whether it was the iPhone 4, Droidx or Nexus One.

Haven't needed to charge during the day
But I do have a cable at home, at work and in the truck

I make it through the day without any issues... not even close

I went into the Apple store and purchased a second cable and Earbuds for the car. The battery isn't great for how much i use the phone and I have been caught short a few times.

Charger

I don't care my charger. My phone is lasting at least 14 hours without needing charging.

where from?
eBay... just search. I would link you to the listing from where I got mine, but for some reason, the price recently changed to $93.99. I think it is a typo after the seller probably meant to raise it to $3.99.

Either way. I see all sorts on eBay in the $4-6 range.

I have a similar, single jack, one from Belkin and I really like it.

For me I'm carrying it around, as everywhere around me where I'm at in Maryland don't have any extra in stock.

My 30 to lightning converter finally marked as shipped from Apple yesterday, so hopefully tomorrow or Friday I will finally have a second charger.

I also ordered one of the glowing lightning cables from iPhone5mod.com, apparently they have them in stock so I ordered one before Apple stops them from selling them (which I'm sure they will with all the patent bs going on).

I bought one just in case but I leave it at home since I saw this i5's battery lasts me around 10h use + 2 days stand by. Awesome.

One at home, one in the car.

I've never had to use the one in the car but knowing it's there makes me feel better. :D

So far I've been pretty lucky with medium gaming, heavy texting, light surfing/downloading and light calling. I usually have at least half my battery by the time I get home around 5:30pm. Usually unplug from charging around 6:30am...

I always carry a cable into NYC when on business. Sometimes, the trains stop working and there's hours of waiting at the end of a long day.

That's quite impressive.
