    hi guys!

    i would like to ask if you know where i can buy -- short of resorting to the online apple store -- the 0.3m version of the apple watch magnetic charging cable? i have scoured greenhills and called the branches of local premium resellers (powermac/btb/dw) but they only have the 1m or 2m versions. the longer versions are somewhat unwieldy for travel purposes.

    thanks for any advice! :)

    thanks! :)

    i wonder why the local resellers are not stocking this. they say "it's out of stock", though i can tell they never had inventory of the thing in the first place. "naubos na po sir eh." as if naman selling like hotcakes ang apple watch para magkaubusan ng accessories. ;)

    the online apple store takes at least a week to ship the item. and the included charging cable kinda reaches all the way to pagudpud from manila based on length. :eek: so it could be a hassle to bring it to the office or the like if ever you need to charge the apple watch.

    apple should have been more compliant with the MFI standard, so that third-party charging cables can be used for the watch...

    Oh, there's a 0.3m version pala. Then I'd also like to get a hold of one as well. I find the 2m cable included in the watch too long for me and was driving me crazy until I got a Nomad Pod. But for some of my straps that won't sit properly on the Pod (3rd party link bracelet), this 0.3m version would be a nice spare cable to have around

    If anyone's seen this recently, please do let us know here ASAP. Thanks!

    i didn't know there was a 0.3m version also... i should have passed by the apple store in osaka last week... i resisted the urge to visit the store so i would not be tempted to buy the iPad pro 9.7"... hehehe...

    using the nomad pod also, but having the same problems as i am using a lunatik epik... a workaround would be to remove the cover of the nomad pod... will be on the lookout for one...

    I'm in Japan now, and I'll be back end of April. I can bring him a few. PM me if you want any?

    Haha, I hope this doesn't come across as selling but as a public service!

    ^Not at all. I did the same thing when a lot of us needed those micro to nano sim adapters. I bought it in bulk and with the Mods' approval, sold it cost to cost as a public service.
