New Extra Long 3-meter (10ft) Dock Connector USB Cable for iPhone®, iPad® and iPod® Ensures Optimum Device Charging through Heavier Wire Gauge

StarTech.com’s new USB dock connector cable allows longer length connections for Apple® Mobile Digital Devices without compromising charging capabilities due to thicker 20 AWG wire construction

Lockbourne, OH - July 19, 2012 - StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts has announced the release of a new 3-meter (10ft) Dock Connector to USB Cable (SKU:USB2ADC3M), for charging and syncing iPhone®, iPad® and most models of iPod® mobile digital devices. The cable not only offers a longer connection than is typically available, but also features thicker 20 AWG wire, which helps to minimize the time it takes to charge connected devices, especially over the longer 3m connection length. Many other USB Dock Connector cables on the market use thinner, 28 gauge wire.

The USB-Dock Connector cable also features an innovative tapered connector, exclusive to StarTech.com, which enables a connection to an iPhone, iPad or iPod without having to remove the device from its protective case.

“This unique cable is constructed using a thicker gauge wire than most other cables of its kind, which supports full charging and syncing of popular Apple mobile devices while delivering full power to the device so that charging times are kept to a minimum” said Keith Rodrigues, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com’s Cables product line. “This is especially valuable when charging an iPad, which can draw as much as 10 watts of power. With a thinner wire gauge, especially at a distance of 3 meters, that can become time-consuming.”

Features of the new Dock Connector/USB cable include:

  • High quality, 20 AWG wire
  • Tapered Apple Dock connector, fits into an iPhone/iPad/iPod docking port without having to remove protective gear
  • Enhanced strain relief on the dock connector, which prevents fraying or breaking
  • MFi licensed: designed to connect specifically to iPhone, iPad or iPod mobile digital devices, certified to meet Apple performance standards
  • Durable, nickel-plated connectors
  • Lifetime warranty

The 3-meter (10ft) Dock Connector to USB Cable (USB2ADC3M) is available for purchase from leading technology resellers including CDW, Newegg.com, Amazon.com, PC Connection, and Insight and will also be distributed by Ingram Micro, Tech Data, D&H, SYNNEX and ASI. MSRP for the USB2ADC3M is $29.99 (USD) in the United States and $30.99 (CDN) in Canada.
