    Default Dock Extender

    I searched the forums, and found all sorts of threads covering my problem (docking an iPhone with a thicker case, like my OtterBox Defender), but never really found solutions other than the occasional link to a few cheap cables here and there that get BLEGH! reviews.

    Finally, after a bit of Googling extreme, I found a dock extension cable (also sells on Amazon) that seems to get a lot of POSITIVE reviews. A little more pricey than some, but for quality, it's usually worth it. I'm going to order one this weekend and give it a try. I'm looking forward to being able to connect my phone to the speaker/charging dock I've got at work again!

    Why don't you look into the Seidio Jr. dock? It's was in TiPb accessories Store. May just be what you're after.

    Nice thought, but...

    1) comments on the review state it doesn't work well with cases with a flip-up dock cover, like the otterbox, and...
    2) I want to dock with my speaker/charging dock at work, not just the USB port on a computer. The standard sync cable works fine for that.

    I probably should have made that clearer in my post. Sorry 'bout that, will edit.

    One of the comments on the $5.50 cable was:
    Does only support syncing and charging. I was gonne use this with my iPad, to connect it to my tv with an a/v cable. This does not work. Becouse that didn't work, i tried to use it with my fm-transmitter. That didn't work either. So my conclusion is that it only support syncing, and charging
