    Mines been permanently on a usb extension for over a year now due to cabling/positioning of my iPad stand and it's never been a problem. Power supply is in an awkward place.

    Some aftermarket cords are not made to the proper standards. If the cord does not work, it should be returned.

    I took the power adaptor AC plug off and plugged a 'figure of 8' AC power cord in from an old amp I owned once. The adaptor now sits about 3 or 4 foot away from the wall socket and the USB just plugs in as normal. :)

    If you have an Apple keyboard that came with an extender, then you can use that one. I've done everything from charging at full speed to jailbreaking with that keyboard extender.
