I have had 4 of these in the past month and have had the same problem with each. They work fine until i suspect a wire comes loose I have had 4 of these in the past month and have had the same problem with each. They work fine until i suspect a wire comes loose in the top of the cable (where it enters the device), then it will only work when it is pulled or pushed into certain directions, until eventually it will not work at all. Im sick of wasting money on these cablels. A new cable must be brought out. …

what disaster has to happen. ..

Stop burying your head in the sand, there is some sort of fault with them. Wires coming loose, appliances getting hot, read the reviews for goodness sake. Your appliences are left charging overnight in the bedrooms of 1000s of young adults as well as us oldies. Do we have to wait for a disaster to happen before you look at the problem and replace the? Terrible way to go about things, this is a 00000 STAR rating but that doesn't work either. …

Such poor design and quality, we are being ripped off
In the past year I've bought 2 mini iPads for my kids an an iPhone 5 for myself and we're on our 10 lightening USB cable in our ho In the past year I've bought 2 mini iPads for my kids an an iPhone 5 for myself and we're on our 10 lightening USB cable in our house. The quality of this product Is disgraceful and really goes against everything that I though Apple stood for. Why have Apple not addressed this defect and admitted that it's rubbish quality. There are cheaper and better products out there, I've always been an apple fan but I've spent in excess of €200 on charges in 12 months, it's a joke and apple ripping of their customers - I think this is justice instated were apple are now as a world leader in design, quality and innovation - No were. When is the last time we've seen a new and exciting apple product, the lightening charger was the only totally new design in years and look at what we the customers have to say about it. I wish apple would respond to all of us. …

However, you can only import photos and videos from the USB drive to your iPad. Also if it's a hard drive, it has to be externally powered. your iPad does not supply enough power to spin the discs in the hard drive.
Good luck! …

Will iPhone 5 data USB cable work on ipad 4.
- Asked by Ann Marie A from Manteca
I'm not the biggest tech savvy; but I do know that it will work. Even though it works; since an iPad I'm not the biggest tech savvy; but I do know that it will work. Even though it works; since an iPad 4 needs much more power than an iPhone 5; it will take much longer to charge since the iPhone 5's charger doesn't use as much power. I have also heard that it is not healthy for devices when you use chargers that aren't necessarily created for them. I wouldn't take this risk though, you should just purchase a separate charger that will help deliver the appropriate amount of energy to your iPad. Good luck! :) …
