    The one that came with the phone is too short in length or to put it in another way I'm used to longer cables. I can see Apple does not have one.

    Apple cables have always been woefully short. At this point, buy a USB extender.

    I find the power cords for the MacBooks, Mac Minis, Airport Extremes and Time Capsules are pretty long, sometimes seemingly too long.

    Sorry, I did only mean the apple supplied dock connector cables with iDevices.

    Not a very good idea. The charging is atleast 50% slower than the regular lightning cable.:(
