    Iphone 5 charger is extremely unreliable. The average life of my chargers last possibly 2 weeks before they plug in with no charge at all. Its anxiety provoking for those who depend on their phone for work and travel.

    Will not charge iPhone after 4 months broken power wire

    • Written by from Felton

    Shoddy design. The cable stresses right where the outer sheath connects to the thicker rubber piece. In my case the red power wire was broken due to the stress at this point. I opened it up and soldered it and heat-shrinked it to fix.

    On the new cable I will reinforce this point with electrical tape. Nothing like a redneck-looking cable on a $500 phone.

    The older cable design was much better, the thicker part of the cable is designed to allow it to flex.

    My charger just broke AGAIN this is the SECOND TIME it's broken. I'm not going to waste $20 bucks on a piece of stupid wire that'll break within a couple of months. DO NOT BUY IF YOU WANTED TO SPEND A $100 ON REPLACING IT EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS.

    Not a very long life span...

    • Written by from Toronto

    The size of this cable is definitely a plus but after only six months of having it, the wires inside have already snapped and now I am out a phone charger... Pretty disappointed considering the older iPhone chargers seems to live on for a very long time.

    Fine, if Apple is going to make poor USB cables like this one at least make them cheaper. my 3rd usb just broke and i just don't feel like buying another one again.

    Had this phone since October and I've had to purchase 4 new cables, truly pathetic product. Apple should invest some time in producing a reliable charger rather than developing Siri, something truly useless. I have used my last 10 % to write this review. My last contract with an apple iphone. Seriously disappointed.

    The chargers are garbage. I can't believe I just recently purchased my iPhone 5S in late December and the lightning cable has already failed me. Apple, you need to step your game up, this is insane. Or at least if you're gonna make bad chargers, don't have them be so expensive!

    Versatilte, not durable

    • Written by from Branford

    I've had this cable a couple of months. Since my iPhone5 uses so much juice, I have to take the cable with me. After repeated use, the cable no longer charges unless I wiggle is around like a set of headphones from 1985. I need to get a new one. At least they don't force you to buy the wall adapter.

    Ugh so over it!!!!

    • Written by from Plano

    So about a week ago I noticed that all of a sudden that my lightening cable for my iphone 5 begin to show wires towards the end that goes into the phone, then the beginning of this week, I noticed that after I supposedly charging my phone overnight, I woke up to only 12% battery life because the cable did not charge my phone. I had to twist and bend the cable different ways to get a charge, I finally had to go ahead and buy another one today, because when I was trying to move music to my phone from itunes, I received a message that the USB on my macbook pro had been disabled and that was due to the faulty cable. I have had my iphone 5 since November 2012 and I had to purchase my third cable. This is ludacris. Maybe with the next generation phone you guys decide to make, make a stronger cable that is more durable and one that will last longer that 2 years. That is all!!!

    Something's wrong

    • Written by from Sharjah

    I'm not happy with the fact that my lightning cables keep not working. I have to move the cable in all different directions for my ipad mini to charge it would charge for about 15 minutes and then stop charging completely.
    This isn't my first time to experience this with my lighting cables, and all my cables are apple certified.

    I have had my cable that came with my iPhone 5s since December. It has worked fine and has had no problems. If everyone would take care of their cables like they take care of their phones I don't think there would be problems.

    For the last month, I have had to bend this cable in all different directions and then hold it in place to charge my iPod. As a result of the bending, the wires at the base have started showing and now I can't charge my 5th gen iPod touch at all. I have had the charger cable for my 3rd gen iPod nano since 2008 and it is still working perfectly. It looks like I will have to retire this lightning to usb cable after only 4 months of use. Not worth the $21 dollars at all, but I'll have to buy another one if I am to continue using my iPod Touch. :(

    Worst Apple product I`ve dealt with

    If I had treated my gf with 1/10th of the love and tenderness I treated this cable with, I would`ve been a happy man. Now I`ve nothing left ! This cable gave up on me, multiple times, and so did my gf. Apple - If you can take one of these problems off my plate, it would be great.

    Hate it. Literally.

    • Written by from Messina

    I have my iphone 5 since november 2012. In less than 2 years I bought 3 or 4 of these horrible USB cables. They work just fine, but after a couple of months they just die, and you have to spend 19.00€ more to buy a new one, knowing that you'll be in the store again very soon.
    I don't understand how a company so good with such quality, must profit on something so stupid like cables.

    • Written by from Westport

    i have 5 chargers in the time of 3 months. i have treated these chargers so well but they havent in return. i am sick of having to by new ones and them not charging properly and then not at all. lease fix this problem i am sick of it VERY! its a shame because i love my ipod but half the time i cant use it because its flat and i cant charge it. the chargers are to expensive to keep on replacing $30 really so lets think $30x5=$150 so i have spent close to $200 dollars just on chargers i should just get a gen 4 or not even bother at all.
