    Hi,

    I just bought the new iPad. I'm looking for a 6' usb cable, to charge my iPad with? I seem to only find 4 footer, but need a six footer.

    Thanks, Jerry

    Over a certain distance cables signal strength begins to drop off, I guess anything longer than 4ft creates issues, you can always buy an extension usb cable.

    Maybe try an active USB hub with own power supply. The iPad need more current though.

    Cable

    I have two of these. Very good 10 feet and very solid. Plus great price.

    I grabbed one off of amazon for 99 cents and it is an extremely high quality cable (suprisingly for that price). No noticeable charge reduction, if any at all.
