Ordering yet another cable
Well, I am now online ordering yet another cable for my daughter's iphone 5. This is at LEAST the 4th or 5th cord I have ordered Well, I am now online ordering yet another cable for my daughter's iphone 5. This is at LEAST the 4th or 5th cord I have ordered for her in the past year. All of a sudden, they just stop working. If it was some $5 cord that I got at the dollar store, I would understand, but this is an Apple product. NOT what you would expect. . .and for there to be no acknowledgement from Apple that these cords do not work when reviewer after reviewer says the same thing is just so. . .un-apple-like. Usually, they are so responsive. Is anyone listening at Apple? Figure out what is wrong with these cords or compensate the consumers by replacing them for free. …

You pay the price you get the quality
I have bought amazon.com junk lighting connectors I ordered two of them at once and got them in the mail one was broke on arrival I have bought amazon.com junk lighting connectors I ordered two of them at once and got them in the mail one was broke on arrival and soon the other broke. So finally I bought this cable which is the same length as the ones I purchased elsewhere and you can feel the cable difference. Worth the money to have the longer cable.
Downside- apple should send these with the device...
Worth the money …

Breaks at lightning speed
I think it is called "lighting" because it breaks in a flash. Even though I have been very careful with it, it stopped working aft I think it is called "lighting" because it breaks in a flash. Even though I have been very careful with it, it stopped working after a couple of months. Please believe the one star reviews because they are all correct. I bought the longer cord from the Apple store, not online. Apple, please fix this problem and be loyal to your customers, there is obviously a problem. …

Poor quality charging cable. I'm thinking of switching to Android.
Plain and simple, every iPhone charger casing is extremely flimsy and fragile. With it's ridiculous pricing and most of it's 3rd p Plain and simple, every iPhone charger casing is extremely flimsy and fragile. With it's ridiculous pricing and most of it's 3rd party competitors inability to create a solid charge Apple leave little choice but to buy there over priced 800% or more profit margin product. This would be okay if you only had to buy it once or twice over the period that you own the phone, but when you spend hundreds of dollars on a fairly quality device, no one wants to continually and it seems like endlessly spend $20 on a very much needed accessory. I've tried everything! I've tried buying multiple cables for my home, car, and a portable one to dramatically reduce wear and tear. Over the last 4 months or so, not one but all of my charger have started to wrinkle and the base of the cable that connects to the phone. Two of the three have completely exposed wires. A few years back, I would purchase 3rd party chargers for my iPhone 4 and they worked like a charm. Apple charged about $20 and I bout 3 for about $8 and had almost the same issues, but I also wasn't paying that large overhead for one item. I'm thoroughly disappointed with Apple's quality when it comes to their charging cables. It's like getting stuck in a black hole and spending endless amounts of money on the same product and it's getting tiring. My Android user friends don't have this same problem and their phones are pretty amazing. I'm thinking of switching just because of the charger issues. The Apple Cable is fast and reliable when it isn't broken, but the life of this product is short lived. …
