    Here's a 6 ft USB to Micro USB cable for $0.81. It has good reviews from people who have used it with Android phones.

    Some long USB cords/extensions may prevent the phone from charging optimally (if at all), even though they may still work to transfer data.

    Most aftermarket micro-usb cables will allow charging but not data transfer regardless of length.
    I have a 7ft cable that works like a champ to charge, but won't connect the phone for data transfer.

    I once added a USB extension cable, and it charged VERY slowly.

    I took the opposite approach. I use a 6 foot long extension cord.

    Way back when I first got the OG Droid I thought the same thing, so I bought a Rocketfish 12' USB A/A Extension Cable from BB for about $30 and it works great for charging and fast data transfer. I really like having that extra cable, allows me to move around my bedroom or computer room without having to worry about a short cable being pulled out the USB port. Now, it is working great for my Droid 4 on Webtop, PC Mode and USB Mass storage.

    I charge my MBA from my nightstand so the power supply without the extension works best for me.

    I just use a usb extension from an old mouse I used to have and it works just fine for my original droid, might not charge 100% the way but a charge without it every month or so and a battery calibration works just fine
