    Overpriced junk

    • Written by from Orlando

    Expensive and breaks constantly. I've bought five already in the past six months. Seriously, Apple? People expect more from you. Total disappointment.

    Appalling quality

    • Written by from Manchester

    Now on to my third lead in just over a year. I am astonished that apple have failed to get this right, a good quality charging lead would seem to be a pretty basic requirement.

    The reason I will no longer buy another iphone again.

    • Written by from Lasalle

    The worst thing that can happen to apple products. This cable and connector ruined my experience with apple. I used to buy Iphones every year but since the Iphone 5 i was hesitant to get the 5s after having changed cables an actual 11 times since I got the iphone 5 on launch. The cables were all left at home and always had problems charging after a few weeks , I tried dealing with the problem and not making a big deal about it but now these cables and the ways you gotta move them to make them work have damaged the connector of my iphone and now I have to change the Iphone for even a new cable to work on it, will I buy another iphone because of a cable? Never again if it will be a lightning connector Iphone. Never again.

    disappointing durability

    the construction is super flimsy. My other USB cables that I have had for longer are still in great shape and yet this one is already breaking..

    Cable stopped working

    • Written by from Houston

    After some months I was having issues for my iPhone 5 to charge, I knew it was the cable because depending on how you move it, it will work or not. Some day it completely stopped working, after taking the cable apart, voilà! One of the internal cables was cut in half. For the record, I keep the cable in the bedroom and never ever take if from there. The cable had the minimum work load a cable may have and never took it outside the room. 'The chain is as strong as the weakest link.

    Disgraceful quality

    • Written by from Ypsilanti

    This product deserves 0 stars. The last one I bought was broken right from the box. They last about 3 months even though I try so hard to be gentle with them. They are unusable for my disabled young adult. He is now forbidden to charge his own iPad as his poor motor skills result in a new cable almost immediately. Apple was a leader in accessibility but what good are all those clever adaptations if a person with poor motor skills can't charge their own device. Shame on Apple!!!!!

    Dissapointed very disappointed

    • Written by from Grand Island

    ugghhh the terrible quality of this cord. Considering the fact that i am the only one in my family that has a lightning cord it really isn't fun when you don't have a back up cord. I have only had my iPhone 5s for 4 MONTHS not even and the cord breaks and on top of that i think my iPhone 4 phone charger charged faster than this cord and also had a better battery holding. if you do end up getting a this cord at least get a few because it doesn't last long just saying

    If it was possible to give 0 starts I would.
    I have just had my 7th lightning cable fail!
    I implore apple to address this problem and send a revamped version of the cable to every customer for free.
    If this continues, there is no possible way I will stay with apple and I'm sure countless others will feel the same.
    The iPhone and it's cable (especially) need an overhaul!
    Please buy a cheaper 3rd party alternative elsewhere as this is expensive and just as useless.

    1. These are too short. 2. They do not last at all!! All of them stop working after awhile because of the wires inside keep breaking. With how much a stupid cord costs, these should be made to last!

    They work like they should

    • Written by from Madison

    I bought my iPod touch 5th gen and a charger just in case on March 19th, 2013, so a little over a year ago. The charger still works fine. Im not sure how this product is receiving 1 and a half stars. My charger was stationary in my room so nothing broke off and no wires were exposed. The wire itself is thick and slightly hard to bend, much harder to bend than the earpods. I assume these chargers would break after months of wrapping around so i think its best that you leave your charger in a stationary spot. In other words, leave you charger in one spot and it should work perfectly fine.

    Expensive junk.

    19 Euro's for a cable that breaks after some months is a joke. I have bought 2 new ones in the meanwhile. Rubbish.

    Can I go lower than 1 star?

    • Written by from Verona

    Concept is great. My devices last a long time, but not these.. I'm up to 3 cables and one port that's fried.... I care for my stuff, and am an engineer.. I know what is "user" and what is "product"... Pretty soon my phone won't charge at all.. so less than 2yrs, and my phone will require $269 repair for a design fault? I've got Tons of Apple products, but this doesn't please me.

    These cords are a joke. I've had my phone for a little over a year now and been through about 5 of them. Nearest apple store is over an hour away so it's cheaper to just pay than drive to have them warrantied, even when I have they've tried blaming it on me saying I don't know how to unplug the cable from the phone. I will start exploring other brands

    Another bad charge cable

    • Written by from Portales

    I just picked up my 3rd Apple charge cord since January. I know a lot of people are having trouble with them but I thought I would ask the question if it possible is a bad run of cords?

    I moved over to IPhone in January and love this phone. For 10 years I used Samsung phones, well, one HTC and a moto, and found this phone to be just what I was looking for. I'm not sure how long I am going to stay in love with a phone that requires and new cord every other month????

    Since I live in the sticks an Apple store is a long way off, 100 miles. My local Radio Shack stocks the IPhone cord so at least I can get a new one. They really weren't to keen on replacing the last one so I just bought another one.

    Amazing phone!!!

    I've had to purchase 3 cords in 3 months because the outer coating splits, exposing the wires inside. This has never happened with previous iphone cords.

    Pretty Great

    • Written by from Billings

    I don''t understand all these fools who are giving this cable one star. As long as you don't twist the connector to shreds, these are pretty durable. And you really can't beat a reversible design. I also love how lightning can provide enough power to charge my Phone and my Pad, unlike my roommate's Android devices with micro-USB.

    Don't read the one star reviews. This cable is excellent.

    Just bought my 3rd cable in six months

    • Written by from Denver

    I got this phone in January and this is the third cord I have bought for the phone. My USB cord for my IPhone 4 never broke and I had the phone for years. Not sure if getting the IPhone5 was worth it with the cord breaking every few months.

    "This cable is not certified"

    • Written by from Hanover Park

    Wow, Apple's own cable magically becomes not certified?

    My iPhone was the last Apple Product I will ever buy again.

    Amount of iPhone 4S Cables I've replaced? 0. And I had the same cable for my iPod Second Gen, iPod Video, and iPhone 4S.
    Amount of cables I've had to replace for my BlackBerry? 0.

    I hear Android uses the same cable as the BlackBerry. Might be nice to go to a company that uses an industry STANDARD
