    Hey everyone, I have this problem when I'm sleeping and I get a phone call. My charger is next to my bed, but the wire does not allow alot of length to move around while using phone. I usually end up ripping the charger out of the wall or phone. I also tend to fall back asleep with my iPhone in my hand (when I'm really tired), later ripping it out of the wall.

    So I am looking for a longer charger, and found one on eBay. Would any charging/overcharging/iPhone problems occur with this charger? I ask because it is pretty cheap, but is exactly what I'm looking for.

    So would it be okay to use this charger? (I also like the black color)

    Does it sync too, or only charge? Hmm, he only seems to sell white. I'd like black color, white gets dirty/discolors.

    I bought those in white.
    For $20 for 20, I settled for white.

    I had to order some cables from mono price so I ordered a couple USB extensions

    I wish Apple would offer a longer cable, I have the same problem and it bugs the crap out of me!

    It seems legit and it's only like 5 bucks. Just buy it.

    Just bought it. Was just worried it might have charging problems. Is it the charger or the iPhone that stops charging once it gets to 100%?.

    You shouldn't have any charging issues. It won't "over-charge".

    Don't use it when you sync. Sometimes 3rd party cables interfere with the installation, syncing, etc.

    If anything I've heard complaints that longer cables increase the time it takes for the phone to charge. I can't imagine it'd be too much of a nuisance if you leave it charging overnight though.
