    Great product... I don't know what everyone else's problem is

    • Written by from Wausau

    I love this cable. It's a lower gauge cable so it's a little thicker than the stock one and what I'm guessing everyone who says it's so fragile does is puts the cable at an extreme angle right before the connector to strip the wiring. Of course it will break if you stress it and yank it out of the socket or the lightning connector but if you're like me and take care of your expensive apple products you will have no problem. With some other long cheap cables that I've bought the charging speed reduced but this cable preserves the original charging speed if you use an apple charger that came with your phone. Don't listen to the uneducated and ignorant reviewers, if you use this cable normally you won't regret your purchase.

    I have to buy ANOTHER cable... AGAIN?!

    • Written by from Richfield

    Seriously, I keep this next to my bed and on a stand. It should be able to withstand the normal plus in every night.... But the cord cannot!

    The cord is the worst quality I have ever had from a charger... Can you please go back to the ugly black hard plastic so that it stops being destroyed!

    This is the 7th cable I am buying this year alone and it is only July 3rd, 2014!


    I don't want to buy a knock off in case it makes my phone explode!

    Lightning to USB Cable (2 m) 6 ft

    • Written by from Salt lake city

    While the service at the Apple Store was awesome, I'm disappointed in the new cable! The length of the cord is great but seems to have a short when I attempt to plug it into my iPhone 5 from the very first use. I have to plug, un-plug, flip it over, try to plug again before I can get it to work. This has me concerned with the quality of both the cord and my iPhone. This is the first iPhone I've owned and it has been enjoyable accept when it comes time to charge it. I can see by other reviews that I'm not the only customer experiencing problems with this cable and it is rather expensive as well. Hopefully Apple will fix this issue or I may go to another phone over a charging cable!

    Does Not Work Well

    • Written by from Redondo Beach

    I have had to replace my original cord so many times it makes me wonder whether it is worth getting the newer iPhones if they use this lightning cord. I have purchased a minimum of five cords within the last year and one-half since I purchased my phone. This is ridiculous and I have yet to see a response from Apple.

    Apple do you hear our complaints?

    Not bad

    • Written by from Georgetown

    This cable is ok, I've had two in the last two years and they work fine, but they don't last that long. The insulation at the lightning end of the cable usually breaks and splits, and exposes the wires inside. You can wrap the broken bit with electrical tape but that's a bit geeky. It works though.

    The phone is great, the cable is terrible. The cable gets broken internally just beneath the connector ending up with an intermittent connection and eventual failure. My older non apple phones never needed a replacement cable EVER. This lightening cable is terribly fragile.

    Functionally Superior but Quality Deficient

    • Written by from San Jose

    We use iDevices at our preschool, and like the lightning over the old 30 pin cables, but these only seem to last a few months before needing replacement. Can we get a quality upgrade Apple? I can't remember ever having a 30 pin cable go bad.

    why would Apple do this ? Lightning cable no good.

    • Written by from Gurgaon

    So many reviews on the same issue and there's no action on it. the lightning charging cable is a mess. Get this sorted soon. we get it that you have us addicted to your phone, but don't take that too far.

    Worst Charger so far

    • Written by from London

    Its actually one of apples worst models ever. To be honest, they need to make another charger for iPhone 5c and 5s because this cable wire does not last very long at all. Its only been less than 2 months and already im going to have to buy another one; which will be my 3rd or 4th one within a Year and a half. If i never had an iphone 5 i would never use it, i honestly would never recommend it, however theres no other charger/ cable possible to use with an iPhone 5.

    Lighting to USB Cable

    • Written by from Largo

    I have had to buy cable after cable due to them stopping to work properly. One day they work and the next they are broken. I never had a problem with the old apple cords. Hopefully Apple will fix this problem as the cords are not cheap. I could have purchased another phone with the amount of money I have spent on buying new cords.

    Garbage Cables

    • Written by from Highland

    Every single cable I have owned frays and breaks in the exact same spot. At first I thought I was being too rough on them however for the last two I have taken great care to keep them nice and still the same results. The rubber material you use now, APPLE, is garbage and should be replaced with a new more durable rubber.

    I bought my IPhone 5c in October of 2013 and it is now June of 2014 and I have gone through 6 chargers paying almost $100 in expenses. They always crinkle and break no matter what I do. I just got one last week and it is already broken. I cant deal with this anymore. Apple needs to fix this a lot or they are going to lose my support.

    Horrible Charger

    • Written by from Sleepy hollow

    I have had to buy 3 or 4 chargers in the last 5 months. I don't know what is is that makes these chargers break so easily, but it is costly and annoying. The iphone 4 chargers are much better and hardly ever break. Apple definitely should not have created a new charger for the iphone 5.

    Excellent Length!!! Excellent Price!!! Excellent Quality!!!

    • Written by from Orlando

    The 2m length is perfect for charging the iPad or iPhone while you're using it. The pricing is reasonable, it is not cheap but it is not expensive as a third party cable. I have never had a problem with this cable. I find that the majority of reviews are very biased since the reviewers are not using their cable correctly. If they're complaining about a simple cable, I would hate to see their devices. They vent out their misuse and abuse on the cable rather than trying to take care of it. Stop pulling on the cord and pull at the plug!!!

    Excellent Cable!!

    • Written by from florence

    I'm very tough on my phones and this is a big improvement over the 30pin cable. The fact that the port on the phone is so much smaller it has less of a chance to get debris and it might just be me but my iPhone 5 charges much faster than my iPhone 4 or 4s.

    To start, I am not one to write negative reviews but I purchased a new charger about 6 months ago after my cat chewed through my existing one. I made sure to protect the new charger and cord so I wouldn't have anymore issues with my crazy cat. To my surprise the charger has started loosing its connectivity AFTER ONLY 6 MONTHS OF USE!!! I have to fidget with the phones placement until it lands just right in order for the phone to charge. This can take several minutes if I can get it to work at all. There are no punctures to the cord and I don't even coil it tightly. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH APPLES CHARGER QUALITY. For them to provide such high quality in all of their other products I would hope they could produce a functional phone charger that lasts much longer than 6 months. As a previous Droid owner, I can say that every single one of those chargers are still fully functional. SO FRUSTRATED AND DISAPPOINTED :(

    bad quality

    • Written by from San Marino

    Please correct the quality of your lightning to usb cable. I am disappointed at the poor quality of your usb cable. For $29, your usb cable should last at least six months. It is frustrating my iPhone won't charge because of a defective usb cable and I am on a business trip.
