    So the cable that came with my Droid is a joke, I think it's barely 2 ft long.

    What are you guys using besides the cable that came in the box? I have another LONG USB to micro-USB cable and tried hooking that up but it didn't charge the phone.

    I ordered a Motorola Cradle for the Droid off Fleabay for 10 bucks but it didn't come with a longer cable. And I know sometimes they say to stay away from some different charging cables because they will hurt your phone.

    So what do you guys do for longer charging cables?

    Monoprice.com is your answer! They sell quality cables with a 100% return guarantee. I can vouch for their 10' cables as I've purchased and use daily two of those at work.

    I've used monoprice.com many times in the past and have had good luck, as have many others here on the forums. I also supply a 6' MicroUSB with my product, the MIKRADLE,, though I buy these in bulk from a different source. PM me if you wish and I can help you out! :) mikey

    +1 for the monoprice.com cables. I bought two gold plated micro usb cables that work great. I think they were $1.50 a piece. The chargers I bought to use with the cables are junk. They total mess with my touch screen, but the cables rock.

    Definitely Monoprice, that's what I was going to suggest. I'm actually about to do the same thing.

    ezeStand offers a 6' Straight Micro USB ($2.99 + $2.95 shipping) or a 6' Right Angle Micro USB Cable ($3.99 + $2.95 shipping) or free shipping if you order an ezeStand.
    Thanks,

    That's exactly the one you need! They are an excellent choice - you will very much appreciate the high quality of that particular cable - that's the one I referenced above. They are an excellent company - these forums prove how popular they are as many here purchase from them. Like I said, I've personally bought many cables there, the only reason I don't buy my large bulk orders is that they don't offer 1,000 bulk quantities (50 pieces is their largest order). Their price is awesome (you can't beat less than $1.50 for a six foot cable, especially one of this ultra high quality)! On small orders such one or two cables, the shipping is also very little and reasonable. I recommend them for all cable needs, including video and hi def cables also. :) mike

    Flo,

    Heh heh! Funny you mention the ten footers. My very first order with monoprice.com was for three 10' cables. Geez, don't know what I was thinking at the time! The stock cable that came with the Droid was definitely way too short, but I went too far in the other direction. So I ultimately ordered six foot cables which worked fine without having to loop all the excess under my desk! The ten footers now are coiled up in a drawer. Monoprice would have exchanged them, but I was just too lazy to send them back! ;)

    On a side note - congratulations on joining the Beta Team! I'm proud of you! Have you been over to the Source lately? I haven't been too active there of late, but with the warmer weather will be stopping in more often. :) mikey

    The 6' Right Angle Micro USB cable is really nice. I like it better than the straight Micro USB cable I have because the plug is large,and it makes it so much easier to plug into the phone.
