I did this for my wife's iPhone charger. It worked great for several months but then the cord started to fray where the spring ended. Guess I need to find a longer spring.

Cheap and elegant solution :

Apple will replace the cable during your first year .... I've had mine replaced twice since Feb 2014 at the Apple store

It's called a strain relief , it helps from fraying the cable Apple is notoriously known for this, good instrucable

Best idea ever, I've gone threw probabialy 15 iPhone cables because of shorted out ends!
