    Terrible quality

    • Written by from Deal

    Just bought my second cable after my previous broke after 14 months, which seems to be quite good in comparison to other reviews I have read on here. Same issue, the wire begins to split at the lightning end of the cable, which soon becomes unusable. I taped mine together in hope of keeping it longer, but the inevitable result was soon having to spend £15 to replace it. Have kept the year warranty that comes with it, but I fear it will break after this has expired again. Sort it out Apple, I don't want to have to keep replacing these, especially for the ridiculous price that is charged!

    Apple USB cables are absolutely rubbish I have only had my I pad a few months and I have had about 7 or more USB chargers they are very very disappointing .they need to make there USB chargers stronger. In my opinion USB chargers do not even deserve 1star rating they are rubbish they brake very easily

    Garbage!

    • Written by from köln

    I'm from germany there are only a handfull of apple stores in germany, I would've to travel 450+km to get to an apple store just to show the apple guys there what I already know, the Apple Lightning Charger Cable is pure garbage!
    -100000/10 I can't use my Ipad anymore and there is no way for me to visit an apple shop without taking a day of from work just to travel there.
    A 600€+ Ipad can't be used anymore because the Cables are garbage quality and your phone support won't admit what everybody here already knows.
    ###k this!

    NOT HAPPY

    • Written by from Leeds

    I have lost count of how many replacement cables I've bought. RIDICULOUS. Sort it out, Apple cos it's driving me crazy.
    What's worse is I had to rate it with one star because there was no option for zero stars.

    Worst cable ever!

    • Written by from Bournemouth

    I have had 4 of these in an 8 month span and the latest one has now just quit after just a month! There is something fatally flawed in these cables given all the bad reviews yet nothing seems to be being done! I have always been wary of buying non-genuine cables, but now I have no choice, I cannot afford to keep replacing these this often. Seriously not what I expect from an Apple product.

    Fix it please Apple

    • Written by from Castletown

    I like to have Apple products, but I can't accept the prospect of needing to repeatedly replace this cable, have had it in use for a year, but expect longer from cables, I don't misuse them and I am from Yorkshire! I buy quality to avoid needing replacements, all this charging is hard enough on the planet. So to Belkin I will go......shame on you for feeling able to continue to offer such a poorly reviewed item....your customers don't feel cared for....

    Poor quality charger

    • Written by from Newcastle upon Tyne

    6 in two years seems better than most reviews but this is a disgrace Apple!!
    Instead of an Apple 6 they need to sort the lighting cable out first
    One star is too generous for this product

    Awful product.

    • Written by from Sidcup

    Flimsy and useless - barely lasted more than a few months before it stopped working. It's unacceptable that customers are forced to pay for a new one time and again.

    1 Star is too much

    • Written by from London

    Luckily for me I had 3 wires replaced during my one year warrenty, My wire's starting to act up again, and I'm not looking forward to splashing £15 on something so rubbish. And the fact that you cant use non-original cables is annoying, talk about MONEY for apple, will never buy an iphone or anything apple related any time soon after i replace my iPhone 5 soon!

    • Written by from Leeds

    This doesn't even deserve 1 star! I've had 4 of these since I got my ipad air which can't be more than 4 months ago! The head of the cable where the lightning charger is, is so tiny and because it's so difficult to pull out of your ipad, the wires eventually come loose. Even when you're 100% careful and only pull the plastic and not the wire, it only takes about 2 weeks before it becomes loose on its own! I've bought a knitted cable wire for £3 that obviously isn't an apple product that worked fantastically for a while until my ipad started saying it won't work because it's not apple certified!!!! £15 is a disgusting price for something that doesn't work! Sort it out Apple for god's sake!!!!!!!!

    Poor Quality Cable

    • Written by from NEWMARKET

    To be fair our two iPhones are about 10 months old and the first cable has just failed. The cables stay in the same place and are used quite carefully but both connectors show signs of metal degradation, am buying 4 from a 3rd party for £6 so we'll see if they last. The originals are very poor quality and I'll reiterate what others have said on here, you don't expect this from Apple when you pay a premium for the products, Steve Jobs would not have been happy.

    Extremely disappointing product for Apple. Each lightning cable will barely last before breaking, on my third in the 10 months since I have had my iPhone 5s. Would give Zero stars if I could.

    So sick of replacing this piece of rubbish

    • Written by from London

    Apple here are some VERY VERY basic facts -
    1. kids / teens (and adults) want your products
    2. Kids / teens (and adults) are constantly plugging in and unplugging their ipods, ipads and iphones
    3.The leads and plugs NEED TO BE ROBUST
    4. Your lightning plugs and their junction to their cable is ABSOLUTELY RUBBISH. It is flimsy, fiddly, and constantly needs replacing, no matter whetther it's an "original apple product" or third party, it's EXACTLY the same poorly thought out cheaply made piece of junk.

    Almost everything else comparable today uses micro usb which is infinately more reliable, Apple, sort it out.

    • Written by from Manchester

    You'd think after paying 500 pounds for an iPhone they would make a strong charger which would last at least a year, I've had my iphone 5 for nearly a year and I've had over 10 lightening cables because they all just stop working! So disappointed when my phone breaks I will not be going back to apple for a new phone waste of time and money!
