    Programmed to Fail

    • Written by from San Antonio

    In buying this product I had hopes that I wouldn't have to keep spending money on accessories but instead I would just be able use an adapter on my current micro-USB products. Unfortunately that couldn't be the case. Within 3 months of use I get the error message "This cable or accessory is not certified". And it's not just a bug with my product, since I've gotten it replaced over 3 times! All of which have broken within 3 months. I've finally given up on this product.

    Third party adapter, but restrict third parties.

    • Written by from Mount Vernon

    I've had an adapter for my iPad for a year, worked great on iOS 6 and 7. However, I bought a new iPhone and all my lightning cables broke, 1 aftermarket, 3 Original. I lost my adapter and bought a new one because my cables stopped working. I started using it for two days and ever since I have this warning “This accessory may not be supported”. I have already gotten three such warnings (one of them when I typed ‘three’. It just doesn't work, this is a fail on Apple's behalf, give us an adapter for a third party cable and not allow use of it. Shame, shame,shame, Apple.

    Zero Stars...Too Flimsy & Doesn't Work Half the Time

    • Written by from Studio City

    This could have been a great product...but it is so flimsy that the metal lightning connector bends and breaks off super easily. I've had tow now....first one broke off completely, second one bent at almost a 45 degree angle from the base (just from lifting up the iPad while charging). Not only does it bend and break easily, half the time I did try to use it I got comparability warnings about not working with my device (and it would stop charging altogether).

    Don't waste your money on this....I thought it was a super efficient way to re-use existing micro USB cables I had...but it's been a complete waste of time and money, and is super frustrating to see something of this shoddy quality sold by Apple.

    Who designed this cable, a 3 years old?

    • Written by from Newark

    Who ever approved or design this needs to be fired! Horrible design.. no reinforcement on the wire to the adapter end part! a few twist and the 4 small wiring can break off! people who are aware about the exchange will keep buying new ones, not knowing they can go to apple n get replacement because of the 1 year warranty when u buy the iphone 5 or ipad..
