    Horrible terrible charger!

    • Written by from Fort lauderdale

    I got my iPhone 5 just a few days after it's initial release date. Probably 1-2 weeks later my lighting cable started going bad, I noticed that the lines on the metal started turning black!!! Within a few weeks, the charger just stopped working! I had to get a charger immediately
    Because now I was stuck without a charger...so I went to cvs and paid about $40 for a new charger, after that it all just spiraled out of control, I am probably on my 15th charger,
    I always get error messages, saying that the accessory is
    Not supported!!! I have spent more money on chargers than what I have spent on my phone, it's completely ridiculous! I think that because of this problem with the chargers, it has caused my phone to malfunction and die at 20% 40% and sometimes 60% saying that it needs to be charged. I love my iPhone, but this hassle with the charger and now the battery dying is making me really upset, and regretful about my phone.

    Absolute Trash

    • Written by from Dartmouth

    If I could rate this garbage in the negatives it is what you would get. Phone won't charge AGAIN. 3rd cable burned up in a year meaning I will have to make AN APPOINTMENT(!) with your rude & arrogant teenage IStore "genius" to be lectured about the correct use of a charge cable to have my AppleCare fulfilled. My wife is on her 4th. Unbelievable. That along with the forced update on the phone as well as numerous other headaches with your products guarantees that we will NEVER purchase an Apple product again - which currently inventories as 2 MacBook Pros, Apple TV, 3 JunkPhone 5s, 2 Ipads and a 27" Display. The moment my contract is up you guys are gonzo!

    Cord for my iphone 5

    • Written by from Baytown

    The cord for my iPhone 5 that I've only had for three months stopped working. Everyone has been talking about how their cords look wrinkled where they connect to the phone and that's exactly what mine looked like before the wires were exposed and quit working after three months. Very poor cable.

    Not attached properly

    • Written by from Sherwood Park

    Just cheap junk. Already not working. You can see where the connection is no longer attached. Would be better to buy a knock off. There might be some quality then.

    low quality

    • Written by from Hartsdale

    Fragile cable! I've had 2 begin to fray at the connection point of the cable and phone plug. I'm very disappointed in Apple with this cable. It's also over priced but with out the usual apple quality.

    Extremely Short Life Span

    • Written by from HAZARD

    Unfortunately, this cable has the shortest lifespan of any Apple cable I have ever used. And I have practically used them all. I am on the 3rd cable since purchasing the iPad Mini this past Christmas and I even used electrical tape and a plastic tube to increase the longevity of the cable. Sadly, this evening, the 3rd cable has malfunctioned. I will have to purchase cable number 4 tomorrow.

    Lightning to USB Cable

    • Written by from SAINT JOSEPH

    I prefer the smaller foot print of the new lightning connector as compared to the 30 pin connecter.... I like the positive connection and the fact that it’s universal so there is no right or wrong way to plug it in. However, there is a huge, huge, huge flaw with this design. With the 30 pin connector, you could grasp the connecter itself to disconnect the device. With the new lightning connector, it is so tiny, that you have almost no option but to pull the cable to disconnect the connector, especially if you use a protective case. So that being said, try as I might to be careful as possible, I am on my 4th lightning cable in as many months... They simply pull apart, and at $19.00 a pop the problem is adding up quickly.

    Awful

    • Written by from Atlanta

    I just got the iPhone 5 as a Christmas gift (2 months ago) and the cord is already scrunched at the lightening end and I have to hold it in some awkward position UNTIL TODAY to the point where it wont even charge at all! Apparently a lot of other people have this problem because when I went out to buy a new one, they were all sold out. I think this new cord was not a smart idea and I for one do not want to continue to pay $20 every two months for this.

    Very disappointed

    • Written by from Esko

    I have had my iPhone 5 for about 4 months and the cord barely works anymore. It only charges if its bent a certain way. It's annoying because the old style of USB on earlier models lasted forever and I never had problems

    This cord is not worth 19.99! It is cheaply made, and break very easily!! Haven't had it 3 months yet and needs to be replaced!

    Weak.....

    • Written by from Marham

    Got it 7 months ago. a week ago it made a bunch of sound and it is turning black. The wires internally twisted when i open it as it stopped charging, the noises turned out it is shorting out. I gave it 1 star because I can not give it 0 star.

    I wish I could give zero star.

    • Written by from Kankroli

    The cable hardly lasted me two months and the replacement cable worn out within 4 weeks. Firstly the necks of the cable gets worn of and later the phone shows you error messages and then you need to learn a new art of finding the sweet spot where the phone charges by tilting, revolving or balancing the phone at the 'sweet spot' where you can get it to charge.few days later that wont work either and you'll have to go shell out more money for a new cable. I'm quite sure apple made a fortune just by selling the overpriced cables.

    My review in a word.. Pathetic.

    Cords breaking

    • Written by from Temple

    I went and bought 5 new cables for my iPad and 2 iPhone 5s. It has been 3 months and only one cable of that group still works. It is so frustrating. If I had bought a knock off brand I would understand but I bought these from Apple. This is a major problem to me.

    Junk!

    • Written by from Ishpeming

    These cords are even worse than their 30 pin connector cords were! How can they make such great phones and can't even get a simple cord right? I've gone through 4 of these cords for my phone. I always unplug by gripping the base, not the cord, and doing so gently. They get $20+ for every cord/adapter just to make their product work with the rest of the world's STANDARDIZED equipment. Pathetic.

    WOULD RATE ZERO STARS IF OPTION

    • Written by from Tucso

    I lost count of how many times I replaced the cable itself, I'm currently on my 3rd USB cube... this could have been the data / charging cable of the future (reversible plug, quick charge time), but its poor quality and remarkable failure rate will only hold it back!
