If you are as annoyed as I often feel about the tiny length of the USB cable that comes with the iPhone then you might find this useful.
Instead of dishing out $18 for an extra USB cable from apple, consider spending just $9 buying the following parts off eBay or newegg to make your own charger of any length you please. I find it really convenient when I know I am near an AC outlet and want to just sit and do stuff on the phone without feeling tethered to a wall or the USB port of my computer.
- 10 ft USB extension for $2.39
- OEM Apple USB sync and charging cable for $2.69
- OEM Apple USB Wall charger (or equivalent) for $3.99
Total = $9.07
