Read the thread folks!
I have the same problem and I don't think its anything to do with cable length.
If I connect a lightning convertor to the ycable and connect it to the USB slot I still get the charging issue, if I add the longer 30pin extension I can't charge either.
let me ask this question another way:
is anyone using a cable with the 30pin to lightning connector and able to charge the phone?
