    I want the longest power / sync cord for my Ipad. I found one that is 11.5 or 3.5M at made by a company called Hardcore Electronics. I found it on amazon and ebay. Has anyone purchased one yet?

    I,m not sure about a longer power/ sync cord. I just bought an usb extension cord. It gives me an extra 6 ft.

    I have one, I've used it for sync and charging. It's a heavy gauge cable.

    I have never used a longer cable but I do know that USB's max length is 5 meters or just over 16 feet. So I don' t see why you couldn't use that cable or even a USB extender up to a total length of 16 feet.

    I have not used that one, but I do have the extra long ipad plug from apple and I use that with a 6ft sync cable I got, so far 12ft and no issues, so I say go for it!

    my brother advised me that the USB extension is not meant for charging (something about power losses due to the wires being used)... he saw me using it, patiently waiting while my ipad2 was charging too slowly, hehe...

    there's a griffin brand being sold in the apple store, try this one out instead, it's 3 meters long... my friend took this pic yesterday while in finland.

    Yes, some USB extension cords lead to slow charging, I've found. I had some lying around the house and tried them out.
