    Geez, I should have had one of you pick some up for me. I ordered mine on Sunday from Apple.com and it's still showing "available to ship 2-3 weeks."

    I feel like I'm living on the edge only having one charger. I usually have one at home, one at work, and one in the car.

    Yeah, I have a million of the 30-pin cables around the house... so I ordered an extra lightening cable from Apple on launch day... and picked up 2 more in the Apple store yesterday... I am comfortable now with the number of cables (4) around my house/car/etc, but not comfortable spending $60 to get here. I keep telling myself that "it's only money".

    I checked on my app, I am weird and decided not to buy through my iphone, they had them in stock at the promenade and then I get down there and they don't have any. I look on my app cart and they had just sold out! So I was smarter this time and ordered one through my phone at the beverly center location. It sucks not being able to charge it at work! my battery is gonna die! The guy at the store told me he sold 20 to a customer yesterday. I think that is ridiculous...who needs 20 lightning cables???!!!

    A black marketeer? It's possible that he has a family plan with up to 5 lines and/or grabbing a few for some friends... or he was just hoarding them...

    Apple has made eBay pull all the auctions for cables and adapters as they are knockoffs infringing on apples patents.

    Thank you for your purchase of your Lightning Adapter

    There has been some confusion with an email that eBay has sent to regarding this item. It was removed due to licensing but I assure you your sale and everyone else's sale is still active and you will be getting your adapter.

    Please Disregard the eBay email as it does not apply to your transaction and disregard if I have already contacted you about this matter. Apple has reported every seller on eBay. Here is the email Apple sent me via eBay-
