    Infuriating. Why isn't Apple doing anything about this?

    • Written by from Portland

    So angry and disappointed. How many abysmal reviews will Apple get before they address this incredibly expensive and infuriatingly simple issue? These cables are garbage and stop working for no reason. I'm sick of replacing them. Everyone else is obviously sick of replacing them. Get your act together, Apple. If you're going to force people to buy expensive proprietary accessories, they should actually work.

    I would give ZERO stars if I could

    • Written by from Melrose

    What is up with these chargers?! I am on my 4th one now and they just STOP working. It's incredibly frustrating and as other have said it is very UN-apple like for them to not acknowledge the problem or back their product. After a couple months, I plug it in and it's buzz buzz charging buzz buzz not charging then I get a message that the accessory is not compatible...um it's an APPLE product. Then they stop working all together. I've been an iPhone user for the past 5 years but this issue with these chargers has me reconsidering iPhones. I also think the fact that they won't properly charge the phone is killing my battery much quicker. Totally disappointed with Apple.

    Does not fit ClamCase for iPad

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    Since this is an Apple product, I assumed it would fit my iPad Mini with the Clam Case. The original lightning cable that came with the iPad works just fine with the ClamCase. I needed a longer cable, but surprise! The pin head is shallower and fatter (just slightly enough) than the original and does not work with a case. I'm having the same issues with audio jacks that don't fit either my iPhone 5S (with an Apple case) or iPad with the ClamCase. I do hope Apple starts to make its OWN accessories so they fit the cables. I'm not giving up my ClamCase, but I won't buy another overpriced Apple cable or phone case since their own products don't fit one another.

    Terrible product!!

    • Written by

    Well first, i would like to give the product no stars. I have spent over $200 total on your lightning connectors that break in a week. The 32 pin connectors were perfect. I feel like downgraded chargers. I noticed it was thinner than the older ones so that makes them more likley to break. If it is called the "lightning" connector, why does it take longer to charge! it has DIED on the charger before and i honestly think it is a waste of my money. I think you need to make major improvements.

    Great charger longer and better!!!

    • Written by from Coalinga

    I purchase this charger a couple of months ago because my original charger that came with my iphone 5 broke so I decided to buy a new one from the apple store because I was tired of going through many cheap ones I purchased off amazon. So I decided to purchase the 2 m size and I was unsure at first when I purchased but once I received it through mail and tried it out I was very happy with the purchase & it was worth every penny. The cord is way longer than the original one you receive in the box and charges your phone/ iPad way faster. So if you are unsure about purchasing this item I really recommend you do because you will be pleased with the end result.. I myself should have purchased 2 because in my home every one fights to use this charger to charge there phones. :)

    Terrible quality

    • Written by from La Porte

    I am now replacing both my 1m and 2m cables for the 3rd time. The quality of these cables is terrible. The length of the 2m is nice for nightstand use but the cable separates at the end that plugs into the phone and the wires are exposed. For the price of these cables, they should last forever!!

    If I could rate this 0 stars I would. These chargers are so expensive and are horrible. They break within a month of having them even though I am extremely careful. This has to be my 10th cable I have gotten this year. It's getting to be a little ridiculous and almost makes me want to switch to android so I wouldn't be spending so much on these cables. Come on apple... step your game up.

    Charges phone fast and long time battery

    • Written by from Bemidji

    I'm online again to buy another charger, this is the third charger I'm getting. Apple needs to do something about producing durable chargers. The chargers only last for about a few weeks. The chargers are too expensive to buy a new charger every other week. I've spent close to $100 on buying new chargers in less than 3 months. It's a BIG SLAP on Apple for not been able to produce a common charger that can satisfy it's customers. JUST TOO SAD!!!!

    Quality is not an act, it is a habit. Quality + Brand = Peace Of Mind

    • Written by from Surrey

    Bought this one at apple online store and after 6 month no complain so far. In past I have spend many $$$ buying lightning connectors. they are very low grade material with compatibility issues. Go for this product if you are looking for quality and peace of mind.

    to much money

    • Written by from Henderson

    I have already spent over $150 on the phone cords alone.
    I really wish apple did not change it to the lightning, my ipod cord from over 2 years ago, works perfectly fine. these cords maybe last a month or 2.
    I have bought different ones from apple, amazon, belkin. just seems like nothing will work for my iphone 5, it would be much cheaper to just get a different phone

    These chargers are a rip off. I have been through around SEVEN chargers now after only a few months. I have tried this product, as well as the amazon knock off product, but neither work. This product has caused me A LOT of frustration and money. I am one very unhappy customer, and have honestly thought about switching phones just to save money in buying more and more chargers.

    Poor Quality Lightning to USB Cable

    • Written by from Amarillo

    This cord lasted 3 months. It will not charge my ipad at all. I will look for a better product to charge my Ipad if one exists. I think the cord connector is flimsy and looks to be stretched where it connects to the plug.

    iPad charger cables too Flimsy

    • Written by from Poynette

    The cables really stink, they are too Flimsy either they break off at the head or the wires come out. I've bought over $200 worth of these and they always fail eventually. I've tried Belkin and a couple other ones too and they are no better. I've had iPad Air since the first day they were available and my only complaint is the charging system.

    You limit the type of cables that can be used, and then you sell us junk.

    • Written by from Mars

    I have had this cable for just over 3 months. Yesterday, out of the blue, the cable stopped charging my phone. I love the length, but the product should last longer than approximately 100 days. I have this cable by my bed and use it at night to charge my phone. I have not abused the cable, twisted it, or otherwise neglected it. I expect better quality from Apple. If you're going to require Apple accessories to be used with Apple products, at least sell us a product that lasts, especially for the price.

    Long Enough

    • Written by from Gardena

    I purchased this 2-meter cable for primary use at the office. It is long enough to be plugged-in from the power source at the floor all way up to my standing desk. Good quality cable, so far.

    You can return a broken one! Don't keep repurchasing!

    • Written by from Fairfax Station

    As with many of the reviewers here, our iphone 5 cords don't last very long. However, it's good to know that their products are covered for a year. You can take broken cord into apple store with receipt and they will give you a new one.

    If you keeping buying new ones, they will never fix the problem (they're making too much money off us). As long as we are returning them every month or two (which is about the amount of time they last), they'll lose money and fix the stupid cord.

    I have to buy ANOTHER cord because mine has stopped working AGAIN! I'm not a repeat customer becuase the product is good, I'm a repeat customer becuase I have no choice if I want to charge my Iphone 5. I've purchased my last Apple product. If this 4th cord fails, Im simply getting another phone...that isn't Apple. Ive got a MacBook pro and an Ipad and I've long been a loyal Apple customer (since 1985) , but I'm done! Showing this level of disrespect for your customers isn't a way to build a base of supporters. I'm tired of tossing out $30 for a cord that stops working after a few months becuase you think you have us over a barrel. You don't!

    Like everyone says, the cords just suddenly stop working. I am beyond angry! I have an iPad and absolutely love it...but have absolutely HAD it with buying new charging cables! I do not yet have a smart phone, but for sure, I will have to choose something other than an IPhone due to this problem. You lost me, Apple. Shame on you for not fixing this problem. Shame.
