    Anyone found a good, retractable USB to iPad cable?

    Good as in, it actually charges from the OEM plug-in adapter, has a retraction mechanism which holds up over time, and a case which doesn't break?

    +1 on this. I will look too, as a retractable cord would be a great idea for me.

    Seido has an iPhone iPad iPad2 Retractable Sync and Charge Cable but I can't find any reviews of it.

    Right, the Orion was targeted for cheap construction in the reviews, which is why I ruled it out.

    The Retrak reviews were from 1) someone who mentioned the retractable cable as a "bonus" part of the product without reviewing it, 2) someone who bought it for someone else and thought it was cool, and 3) someone who thought the construction was cheap and worried about it holding up.

    It's not clear whether the included cable is the iPod USB 2.0 Sync and Charge Cable or not. And that cable is available on Amazon, but not reviewed.

    I found a retailer locally in Southern California (Microcenter for anyone who cares) which carried the ReTrak iPod USB 2.0 Sync and Charge Cable. It was $10. I bought it, tested it, and it works great! Terrific solution.
