Long Lightning to USB Cable

Do you folks know where I can find longer lightning to USB Cables. 8-10 feet long would be the best.

All the ones I have found have been terrible build quality and even poorer reviews.

Any help would be great. Also I apologize if its a repost but its hard to search for long cables the search results are very long.

I ended up getting the micro USB to lightning adapter to use all the micro USB cables I have. I never found a longer lightning cable when I was looking.

Your best option is buying a male to female standard USB 2.0 cable extension and then plugging the cable that came with your iPhone into that. You definitely don't want a 3rd party 8-10ft lightning cable as their build quality is going to be awful. Even shorter 3rd party cables aren't recommended right now as they still haven't fully nailed down the proprietary setup Apple is using.

Yeah, because they sound like they would be reputable and make high quality products.
