Hi,
I brought the nexus wireless charger so I could use it in my car as a car charger alongside my infiniapps holder. I have everything mounted ok but I cant seem to find a cable that will allow me to connect to the charger without the dreaded red light.

I brought the portapow one from amazon which was meant to allow high amperage, but after needing to hack it so the plug would go into the charger (silly design) it still didnt work - so now I have a 5 dud cable lying around.


The difficulty is that the original cable is not long enough - my belkin charger for the cigarette lighter is ok - and Id rather not have to wire in another cigarette lighter behind the dash - so any 2 meter confirmed working cables that can be shipped to the UK out there?


Thanks!

Two meters? That's a heck of a length of cable - are you sure you really need that much?

I've had good luck with the Monoprice USB cables. The "28/24 AWG" ones supposedly have the thicker (24 AWG) wires for the power than the usual cables on the market. I have several of the 6' (~2m) ones that I use at my desk when doing dev work. They aren't floppy like the cheap cables, so I don't generally use them in the car or other places where strain on the USB connector could be an issue.

Their International page suggest that they are available through Amazon UK.
