    Disappointed and frustrated

    • Written by from claremore

    I've gone through about five iPhone 5 chargers now & my new one just now has stopped working, getting very frustrated with this & I can see everyone else has too, fix the problem. This is ridiculous.

    3rd one just broke

    • Written by from San Diego

    Not sure if the cable has less structural integrity than the 4's... But, my 5's charging cable keeps breaking. It's so frustrating I'm planning on using a 4 cable with an adapter to mitigate any risk of this happening again. I am beginning to believe these aren't isolated incidents after reading the reviews.

    • Written by from Davie

    Apple be accountable for the great products you make but also take responsibility and provide a solution when your products do not work!!!I
    I currently have 6 Iphone 5 chargers and none of the chargers work!, this is hundreds of wasted dollars. I was shocked at the number of customers with the same issue. Apple FIX the problem!!!

    Better quality please?!

    • Written by from DECATUR

    My iPhone 5 is my first iPhone and it might be my last if apple doesn't do something about this charger... Or at least they could warn us when we're buying an expensive phone that we'll have to pay an additional $19 every 3 months to get another poor quality charger.

    Continually fails

    This will be the third cable in less than a year. Not up to Apple's quality.

    Different Lengths

    • Written by from Garden City

    I noticed some reviewers complaining about the cord being too short and wanting one 5 or 6 feet long. Cant they see it comes in .5 meters, 1 m, or 2m? (2 meters being over 6 feet long!). I LOVE THIS OPTION! I wish every manufacturer made this option available.

    EPIC FAIL

    • Written by from Orange

    For a company that prides itself on quality, this one's an epic fail. I've been a loyal customer since the first iPhone and the cables always seem to break apart near the ends. PLEASE MAKE DURABLE CABLES!! Maybe then people would stop buying from other manufacturers and you can stop wasting money putting chips in them.

    Break very easily

    I expected more from such an expensive phone as IPhone! The charger breaks every 3 months and always in the same spot!! Apple should fix this...I can't believe the poor quality of a $20 charger...

    dissapointed

    • Written by from Kingston

    I'd like to say that I was going to buy a replacement cable for the mine that broke, however after reading reviews, I think I'll just stick to my mophie case that uses a different adapter. How can you expect anyone to purchase these products with so many negative reviews? Reviews of poor products are going to bring an end to this company

    horrible

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I've gone through 4 cables since the release of the iPhone 5 apple really needs to fix this problem. I'm starting to hate the iPhone due to constantly having to purchase new cable to keep it charged.

    On my 10th....

    • Written by from EAST NORTHPORT

    Very upset with the overall design of the Lightening Cable... I have had many issues and always the end result in buying a new cable.. I absolutely love the idea of the lightening cable and its simplicity and bi-directional insert. However.... to have such a flimsy cable be on the the market is ridiculous... even WORSE is to have APPLE SUPPLY IT! Would be better making it out of metal from the top to about 3" down so the stupid thing does not break. ALL of the cables that went bad had the same issue, loose connection and having to wiggle and fight with it to charge. I would appreciate something would at least hold up to removing and inserting into the phone from the same company... Bad on Apple....

    On the + note i LOVE MY iPHONE 5!

    Gone through 5 cables!

    • Written by from London

    I don't particularly abuse these cables and all of them have failed in the same place. I've had to switch to other chargers with flat cable design. As always with a fault in design, I think apple should do something about it!

    I'm a bit fed up with the charger failing at inappropriate times!

    WARRANTY

    • Written by from Norfolk

    Ok, so despite the reviews i got this charger today, because well, what else am i going to do? i got my iPhone 5 in jan. 2013 and used the original cord it came with for a very long time, and the last few months/weeks of its life is when it was not taken care of properly (due to someone else using it) and that's when it finally broke. it lasted probably longer than 6 months. Anyway, not many other reviews are talking about the warranty it comes with, it has a 1 year warranty and you get the receipt through E-mail so you don't lose it. I'm sure that when this charger goes that they will try everything they can to say it was my fault and not give me the warranty but well see. So as long as you take care of it, like don't just rip it out by the cord, only unplug it by the plastic pieces and don't bend it/be careless, then it should last you a while and should be covered by warranty.

    Faulty cable.

    • Written by from Princeton

    I like the idea of a pin that works backwards or forwards, but it's not worth the issues the cable causes. I'm only able to charge my iPhone 5 (purchased in summer 2013), with an old iPhone cable using a Lightning adapter. I had problems with the original Lightning cable early on, with my Macbook Pro giving me a notification that it was using too much USB power and dropping the charge. Because of that, I purchased a new Lightning cable, but it gave me the same problem and it had to be returned.

    Recently, I was sent a replacement iPhone via warranty, and it included a new cable as well. It worked for about a day, then finally, less than a week later, the Lightning pin actually broke off from the rest of the cable after gently unplugging the phone. This is a problem that absolutely needs fixed ASAP. Perhaps it is with newer iPhones, but from the sound of friends and family with the 5C and the 5S, it still gives them problems - often right out of the box.

    Poorly made cables.

    • Written by from Greenville

    I am a fan of Apple products and I have been surprised by how poorly these cables have performed. My family has three I-Phone 5s and one I-Pod 5. Four out of four cables failed. Two in less than a year, and two at 13 months. Apple should fix the problem and replace the cables at no charge to the customer. They will only replace the cables that are less than a year old. Their products are expensive compared to the competition and in the past I didn't mind paying extra because their quality and technology were so good. I'm sorry to say that it appears to no longer be the case. The only reason I didn't give the cable 0 stars is because 1 is the lowest rating I can give it.

    This Is a Joke of a Charger

    • Written by from Lewis center

    I am so upset with Apple. Not only is the charger very short, but it breaks incredibly easily. I still use my iPhone 5, and I am not kidding when I say I've gone through 7. They always break in the same spot.

    Bad design

    • Written by from Malverne

    I have had to buy multiple replacement cords for my daughters phone since they have had the 5s. I still use my original 4s cord that I have had for years. Thought it was the teenagers being rough on the charger cord. Reading others expierences with same I see it is not them. I have been replacing every 3 months.

    I hate this cable, it's so poorly made!

    • Written by from Amherst

    I have owned FOUR of these cables now and they all break in the same exact place. I have tried going to off brands but I the whole thing about it not being compatible with my phone so it won't charge. It makes me so angry since they are $20 a pop! I'm about to go buy TWO MORE. Apple, I expected more from you!
