Extend Your Reach With This 9-foot Charging Cable


We’re all used to the three foot cable that comes with our iOS devices. iPhones, iPads, and iPods all ship with this short cable so you can sync with your computer and suck some juice out of the wall. Unfortunately, three feet is often far too short to be useful. There are other solutions — power strips and usb extenders do work, but they aren’t exactly fun to pack and unpack. It would be much more convenient to just have a longer iOS charging cable.

The PowerLine Cable available on ThinkGeek is just that. It is a single cable that works on all of your iOS devices. It’s just like your official cable except that it is three times the length — nine feet long. If you want the extra room that this gives you, you’re going to need to drop $15.99 USD. Shipping, as always, depends on where you want it to go.

Finally, you’ll be able to get your cord to reach to your nightstand. Hell, now you can surf while you’re charging on your couch. This is especially useful for those of us who have to travel and rely heavily on the power outlets of strangers. Trust me — this is worth the sixteen bucks.
