    So I had this 6ft USB and charger for my phone for the last 2 years and finally, it's crapped out. It did the job for a USB from a generic company other than Motorola. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a long USB for my bionic that will last longer and won't mess with my phone or battery since I have another year til I can upgrade. Help! I might need to start using tape with how I need to maneuver and position the phone and charger.

    Amazon and Monoprice.com are 2 sites you can get inexpensive cables from. I've bought from both of them, and haven't had any problems. I also have 4 wall chargers, 2 vehicle docks, 3 extended batteries, a battery only charger, 2 external batteries for charging, and the lap dock. I'm scared to upgrade since I'll lose all my accessories!

    Walmart has a 10' micro-USB cable that they sell for about 20 dollars. I've got one and it works like a champ. I believe that it's made by Belkin if I remember right.

    May I ask why you have so many chargers and batteries? Even when I had the Bionic, I only had 2 regular batteries, 1 extended battery and 3 charging cables (1 for home, 1 for work and 1 that I have in my purse I'm over at my sister's and need to charge my battery over there. Just curious.

    The Bionic was/is my first smart phone, my last phone was an LG enV Touch. I've had extended batteries for my last two phones even before I got the Bionic, though. My first ext batt for my Bionic is now 2 years old, so it's lost some of its ability to hold a charge, and I just ended up buying the last two on sale for $25 each.

    And charging cables, those are cheap and universal, as long as your phone uses a micro USB port, so why not have lots! I have two chargers for work, mine, and a "loaner" I can lend to forgetful co workers. It even has interchangeable tips, so it can charge an iPhone!

    I guess I have a strange fear of my phone's battery dying, and missing some important call from/about the family. When I'm at work, I'm gone for 24 hours or more at a time, so I like having that line of communication.

    I got it from a special promo from Costco and since then I've been lazy to upgrade it. I think it's been 2 years since I firs got it and it still does the job for what I need it for. Until it starts acting up I'll think about upgrading it other than that I've got 2 batteries and it still makes phone calls and connects to the internet.
