Anybody tried this if so any recommendations?


I am going to check Amazon and Ebay but if anybody has this setup and has recommendations shoot away...

Would love a extra 3 feet if possible on existing cable :cool::cool:

i have a few laying around from other electronics--no problem here--if anything, it might take a LITTLE longer to charge, but not by much. but as far as syncing goes--no problems experienced.

I only use Cat5 USB Extender solutions. I have purchased a few units from KVMSwitchTech in the past and they work great. I would recommend checking them out as they offer a wide range of USB Active Extender cables and Cat5 USB Extender solutions.

If you want something aesthetically pleasing that matches the cable, Apple's keyboard extension cable should work. Apple designed it to only work with its keyboards, so it has a metal notch in the plug. You can still insert the cable if you do so at an angle, but it's a bit hard to remove, so you might want to flatten the notch with some pliers.
