Default Magnetic Charging Dock - Cable Length

Does any one have the DK31 charging dock?

How long is the cable? It looks dinky and some Amazon reviews say the same.

How long are we talking? 20cm, 30cm?

I've got it, and it's not too long. About 60/70cm.... I tried an extender but that didn't work so in the end I just rearranged my desk a bit. It's much better than having to open the charging port each time.

I have it too, and indeed, the cable isn't very long, so it takes a bit of rearranging things around because of that.

Ok, thanks folks. If it's 60-70CM, I could probably work with that.

I looked at that cable Duncs, I'm more interested in the Dock aspect of it though. It's pretty difficult to prop my phone up against anything at a decent angle when using the Dual Shock controller, the dock looks like it will do the job perfectly.

I have the dock and it is great. You are right though, the cable is not too long. I would say 60-70cm. If you want I can have a proper measure and come back to you.

It's cool, thanks psyxologos. I've already written my letter to Santa so providing I'm on his good list, I'll be getting it anyway.
