  • Suggestions for iPad 2 dock extension cable

    I'm helping a friend search for a dock extension cable for the iPad 2. He's looking to get a desktop speaker system for the iPad 2, but I am thinking that they are not widely available right now, while ones for the iPod/Phone are abundant. And with the size of the iPad 2, docking it on one of those speakers looks like an accident waiting to happen.

    I usually just check with Monoprice for a cheap solution, but they have none (or at least my search yielded none). Amazon listed a few, but some of the reviews are not very good, or the damn cable cost too high (e.g., > $15). With about $100 already spent for taxes, cases, and screen protectors, I'm not looking to spend too much more.

    So without having to wonder if a cable would work for the iPad 2 or not (Apple is notorious for making slight changes to sell more), can someone recommend an extension cable that is iPad2-compatible (support the 10 W charging, synching, audio control, and other iPad 2 normal functionality).

    Thanks in advance.

      Thanks, Michael. The dock may work (not sure if the iPad 2 will fit with this cover on). I'll have him stop by the Apple store to check it out. I'll have to see if those iPod docks support an auxiliary in or not. I'm not sure how much sound quality is affected by using the auxiliary vs. the 30-pin input.

      The cable is a bit expensive (not surprisingly). I'm just looking for an extension to plug into a docked speaker like these:

      Perhaps I'm being short-sighted, since I've not used an iPad before.
