    3' is the chic distance to be from an outlet. It is a design feature. The IHunch.

    Ah ... missed it, lol.


    The cord doesn't even reach my bed that's right next to my night stand. Had to get a longer cable.

    OP should get quality 3rd party lighting cables. I've have quite a few up to 6 feet. Rarely use the supplied cable.

    Insignia makes a 10 ft long one that is the greatest purchase I've ever made.

    I wonder if Apple sells replacement charging cables for the Apple Watch, because the one that came with the watch is long..I'd say a good 6' or more

    Yep, if you want to use it while charging, you'll need an extension.

    I bought an oem, authentic lighting cable from the Apple Store that is pretty long. I think 6 feet. It's plenty long from the wall outlet behind my bed to my phone in my bed :)

    Who stays with only his stock cable? me...

    Two 3 footer for the car and my mobile gears.

    A 6 footer for the daily dresser charging, AC is a little ways down there.

    A 10 footer for the iTunes box which sit tucked in a closet, when I need to cable-sync.


    But I do Thnx Apple for the super soft, supple, feels super Monster premium cable, and that's sarcasm too.

    Just curious. Why a 10ft cable vs putting the charger on an extension cord?

    That's the way we use it. Apple charger to a 2ft extension. Just using standard USB cable

    The phone doesn't care, the human however, if doing this half-sleep may hit 100/200v. :)
