    Looking for a short lightning cable which will charge iPad mini or iPhone
    at a normal speed rate.

    I recently bought an el cheapo (normal length) cable from Target and it takes FOREVER to charge the phone with.

    The cable's length should make no difference (over the size range you're talking about). Chances are that you got a bad cable. See if you can return it.

    I already threw out the box and receipt. It was for iPad2.

    I've bought a few 3-1 cables on ebay and they flat out did not work.

    I've had good luck with the Amazon Basics Lightning cables -- two or three of them around the house and in the car, and they all work just fine. I haven't tried Monoprice, but they always make good stuff too.
