    Does anybody know where to find one, is it true they are thicker or some change was made to them?

    I bought two of these Griffin 3 meter (10 feet) iPhone/iPad cables and love them. I hate getting third party cable because they tend to be cheap and break real quickly, but this one is nice and thick, and you can charge and use your device from the other side of the room. Only $20

    As always: Monoprice.

    Nope. Same dock connector cable.

    I have this for my iPad and it works great for me. Pretty long, almost too long but, eh, whatev. Charges fast so that's all I care about.

    The simplest, cheapest and most flexible solution is a mains extension lead!

    I bought a set of 3 6' Sync/Charge cables off Amazon from Cosmos. Including this 4 Port USB Wall Charger which comes with a 6' cable as well. I wish they published the specs on the wall charger but it seems to work just fine for my overnight charging needs.

    Not the cheapest, surely. That would be leaving the iPad closer to the mains socket so the standard cable worked ;)

    I have several iPhone/iPad cables from Monoprice. Normally I am a huge fan of Monoprice but I do not like the Sync cables I got from them. The 30pin side is very bulky and will not fit many of cases I have tried and it has a little retention button you have to push to remove the plug. I don't like that retention mechanism but if you happen to need/prefer that feature then the Monoprice cables would be good option.

    I bought this 6' cable a few days ago on Amazon. It was just $11 & is charging my new iPad just fine.
