Currently the description reads: Coil length: 4.9 in (12.5 cm) and Cable length: 39 in (99 cm). The coil length looks accurate when compressed, but it is a coil, so it is variable length. Is the Cable Length the length of the second cord, or both cords when they are connected? And is the cable length measured when the coil is compressed or extended? If I was buying this (considering it) I would not want the coil extended at all, because that would look silly in my setup, so what matters to me is the length of the straight cord, after the heavy connector in the middle (which I do not understand the purpose of, other than to be a weight to keep the cord on the desk).
So, my main question is, what is the length of the straight cord (ignoring the coil section)?
