These are awesome. The length is great because you dont have to sit right on the outlet to use your phone while it's charging. My husband was recently in the hospital, and I could plug this into the wall and it would reach his tray table by the bed. Also, the braided cord makes it safer to use your phone while it's plugged in, because it won't bend at the phone like most regular cords. And my daughter said her cats can't chew through these as easlily as the plain plastic ones. Great deal for 4 cords.
