Saw this on Amazon and figured it was worth a shot. Says in the description it's guaranteed to charge and sync. They're 3 ft long (I believe the official Apple ones are 3.5'). Just in case anybody's interested http://www.amazon.com/2pk-Pin-light...354208814&sr=8-2&keywords=Butterfly+lightning Edit: Sorry about that. Copied and pasted the link from my shopping cart rather than the product page. This one should work Edit for review and pictures: I got both cables yesterday wrapped in individual sealed bags. Right off the bat you can tell the charging end (opposite the USB) is larger than the standard Apple one. There is no problem with it fitting and even though it looks larger with the naked eye this is probably just my eyes playing tricks on me as it has no problem fitting snugly into the phone exactly like the Apple one. It isn't too tight and it isn't too loose either. It is exactly 3 feet 4.5 inches long while the official Apple one is 3 feet and maybe 4.7 inches long. So it's slightly shorter than the Apple one. I have it charging my phone right now and it has been for about 20 minutes. The phone isn't getting hot and this works for both wall charging as well as USB straight to a computer. Unfortunately, I'm at work now and my work computer doesn't have iTunes so I can't comment on syncing with it yet but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Windows recognizes the phone being plugged in so I assume iTunes would too. Here are some pics to show the end that goes into the phone. I'm taking the pictures w/ my Iphone 5 so right now I don't have any way to show how the plug fits into the phone itself. I'll try to get one of those up later on tonight or tomorrow. If you guys have any questions just ask. In the first picture the "copy" cable is on top and in the second one the "copy" cable is on the left.
