Amazon has pretty good one for $7. Should be the first one that pops up on the nexus 7 charger search

Just searched, I found one charger that says it only works when it's off

And I found a cord that's 40ft long but it's just for the nexus s on amazon

I've tried several USB extension cables (USB male to female) and none will deliver amps enough to charge while using...

Just use reg USB to USB . put that cable from charger to supplied cable. Works perfect. Forget the micro crap: female to female 6 foot works perfect

I don't get how it could only be for the Nexus S. I've only seen one Android phone that had anything other than a standard microUSB cable for a charger, and that was my brothers DROID Eris. If the cable is microUSB, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work.

With that out of the way, I have a USB extension cord I got years ago for some other purpose, and it works just fine with all of my devices. It effectively gives me 8" because it combines the two. I would just get something like that.

I have both a Nexus 7 and a Nexus 4, and I have been playing with the inbox chargers and cords which came with them.

The N7 has a 2 A charger and a short cable, while the N4 has 1.2 A charger and a slightly longer cord. Both cords appear to be the same external caliber.

The N4 charges fine with any of the charger/cable combination. However, the N7 charges well only with its native charger/cable. For example, with the N7 charger/N4 cable, it won,t charge at all when being used, and took 8 hours to charge 50% when off.

The small difference in cable length can,t account for this huge difference. I would be interesting to see others' experiences with 3rd party cords.

I basically use whatever cord is handy. I have Kindle cords and cords from various phones...I haven't noticed a difference. My N7 was delivered to my office and I've never brought the charger and cord home, in case I needed to charge it there.

Yes, apparently I hoard chargers and cords....:)
