    i was looking for a way to extend my ipod usb cable since i dont have a wall adapter and was wondering what you guys thought of this one:

    is it too long or will the ipod be able to charge from it fine? i can get it for 4.49 so thats why i was looking into it. does anyone know of a cheaper cable that is a little shorter?

    Dont think there is a cheaper cable...
    But go to the site www.monoprice.com
    They have like 1.71 shipping and SUPER MEGA cheap cables...
    Got a PS2/3 component cable, $20 in stores, for like $4 shipped.
    Shipping is slow - maybe a week and a half - but its so cheap what do you expect.
    VERY reliable and SUUUUPER cheap
    That goes for anyone who wants any cables - I mean it check them please you owe it to yourself.

    The way I figure, you need a computer to recharge it. You also need a table to put the computer on. So why not just plug the iPod in and leave it on the table ? Don't you have any room for a device that small ? Tidy up !

    You also need the computer to be turned on. So why not charge it WHILE YOU'RE ACTUALLY USING IT ? That's what I do almost every night - for about 2-3 hours I'm on my computer and it's always charging my iPod.

    And the stock cable does it's job very well.

    I understand what your saying but have you thought hes in a sort of situation like me? I rather surf the net on my ipod its really enjoyable and I do it at night while on the phone with my mates my ipod charger works extremely well but it won't reach my bed so I have to get up and sit up in a cold chair its not very enjoyable and i might as well go on my computer
