Micro USB Charger?

I have an Orange San Diego, and the charger which is supplied with this handset is too short in length. Could somebody recommend me a genuine micro USB charger which would fit through the back of me bed and under me pillows? Current charger length is 1m I think. Thank you

Go to Tesco. Buy a cheap one. Or Argos...

And they'll likely have similar length cable although the OSD is rather short.

Don't think you need a new charger just a longer cable tbh. Can't you swap the cable out for another you have?
If not work out the length you need the cable to be and order one from ebay or amazon. We haven't stalked you and measured the distance from your socket through the bed and under the pillows, honest..

The samsung chargers seem to have a long lead. Such as the one supplied with the galaxy mini.

True, I'm just looking at a micro-usb charger I'm using, and it's got a Samsung Logo on it.
Could've come from an SGS2...

His bedroom must be massive...

In the real world though I have found that cables of 3m length have made charging take longer.

So, can I ask: why are UK/Irish cables on electric kettles about 6 inches long? It's been puzzling me for 20+ years. Not just awkward, but a boiling kettle is nothing you want that close to a powerpoint - know whatta mean?

Because trailing leads from a kettle full of boiling water would be extraordinarily dangerous for small children. If they reach up and pull on the lead, they'd end up with a couple of litres of boiling (or very nearly boiling) water on their head, a short lead helps to prevent this happening.

Got part of the cable on mine wrapped around the base unit that the kettle connects to or it's too long...
