so we all know the power adapter with Apple's usb cord goes all of about 3 feet. i need it to go about 7-8 feet. i bought a cord off ebay last year that was usb with an ipod connector, but it took a long time to charge the iPhone; Apple's charged my iPhone fully in the same amount of time as it took this cord to charge it 50 percent. would it be best just to get an extension cord and then just plug the adapter into the extension cord, or what? any suggestions?
