    I've been using an extension since my 4.

    Best thing I started doing since the cable just isn't long enough sometimes

    While I can't speak for the iPad 3, USB extension cables (I use 10' ones) work just fine with my iPad 2.....

    My extensions charge all the iPhones I have including the 5, but will not charge my iPad 3. I guess the cable can't negotiate the higher power draw with the adapter + extension cable.

    I'd like a spare chord+plug in charger for my ip5. Should I not be irritated that at the Apple store, they are $19 each for a total of $38? I would have imagined they'd be $19 for both. :(

    Just buy a regular long 30 pin cable

    That's what I did
