    I'm looking for the slim charger cable like the one that comes with iPhone4 which works with the bumper but only for a fraction of what Apple would charge. I don't think the ones at monoprice work with the bumper. Should be the same length like the Apple cable or a bit longer.

    I've got the monoprice 6' cables and I can confirm that mine do NOT work with Apple's bumper. You can push it far enough to make the most tentative of connections, but any movement of the phone afterwards breaks the connection. Pretty disappointing, especially since my speakers cable doesn't fit into the headphone jack opening either.

    Will probably be selling the bumper. ;(

    I've been trying different cables around the office here with my buddies iPhone 4. So far, the only exact fit is the Apple cable. The rest don't fit well or need to be forced (not good). We even have a knock-off eBay cable that looks almost exactly the same as the Apple cable, but it's barely too wide.

    I expect more companies to make bumper-compatible ones now.

    EDIT: Turns out, some eBay sellers are saying their cables are identical to the OEM ones. And cheap.

    If you look in the following thread you can see there has already been a 2 page discussion on this very topic. i Purchased some cables from Ebay and Meritline (still waiting on the Meritline cables) and confirmed that the cables i received from Ebay worked. The links are in the thread.

    thanks for the link. I also just received THIS cable which works perfect with the bumper. It's extremely short but perfect for mobile on-the-go charging.

    I ordered a few cables from this guy and even though they look like the newer apply USB cables, they do not fit an iPhone 4 with the bumper on.
