That said I find this surprising. I would've thought the Vox would at least accept a lower charge. I can see myself forgetting my Vox charger at home when I travel. I doubt very much you could buy the appropriate charger while on the road. At least for under $40 or $50 which I would find highly irritating.
Agreed. Another foot or two would've been nice.
My hubby's iPad charger is about the same length. Strange...
...laptop chargers are soooo long...and these are more like laptops than phones, imo. We've both had some funny moments while we're trying to use our devices while awkwardly sitting in a funny position near the outlet where it's plugged in!
