Not long enough

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I looked for the size of this cord before I ordered it, and even emailed to ask how long it was... I received an automatic email but no answer to the question. I needed this in a hurry so I went ahead and ordered it, the diameter is really small and not long enough to do much of anything with it!!
