    Had my iPhone 4 charger for over 3 years and still use it to charge my iPod. Have had the iPhone 5 now for almost a year and its already shorted out. My three roommates have also had 3 different apple brand chargers that shorted out.

    Not worthy of the Apple name

    • Written by from BURIEN

    Apple needs to step up and get these made to a more reliable manufacturing standard.
    Attention to detail is where Apple usually shines.. In this case they do not.

    garbage

    • Written by from Timisoara

    None of my original cables work anymore. But the worse thing is that I upgraded from 6.1.4 to 7 and none of the aftemarket cables are accepted anymore. So...I am stuck with one big chunck of useless plastic....
    NEXT STEP...SELL IT AND BUY SAMSUNG, HTC OR BLACKBERRY...NEVER AGAIN APPLE!

    I love this cable.

    • Written by from Uncasville

    I love this connector/cable. I love that it's reversible. The old 30 pin connector was not and you had to turn it around if you did not have the right side to connect. I think this is very sturdy also. The 30 pin connectors were not as sturdy. I have no complaints.

    POOR QUALITY Lightning USB cable

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    For years I have purchased many apple products to include iPods, iPads, iPhones, mac book and even an iMac. Every single Apple portable device USB power cable falls apart. I have many friends and family co workers and they all agree the cables are very poorly made and in many cases the cable sheathing wears out or bunches up and eventually you end up with a wire with sheathing peeled back and metal wires exposed which will eventually not be usable. I have had to replace at least 15 Apple USB charging cables for various Apple devices over the years at approximately $20 bucks a pipit adds up. ITS RIDICULOUS I purchase the iPhone 5S and already the cable is frayed and unusable. SO I BEG YOU APPLE DEVICE ENGINEERS AND DEVELOPMENT TEAMS FIX THE POOR QUALITY CABLES SUPPLIED WITH YOUR GENIUS DEVICES!!

    Terrible Quality

    • Written by from Saint Petersburg

    These lightning cables do not last long. They stop working after about 3 months, cable end either breaks or just don't work anymore. I have already purchased 4 lightning cables in the last 8 months (1M, 0.5 M, 2M), all have the same issue, poor quality. These cables are costly, $20, and 2M is $30, but it does not mean that they are good. I have old iPhones cables which still good for 3-4 and more years. This Lightning to USB Cable should be recalled and re-designed.

    Poor Quality - Died after 3 months even while looked after :(

    • Written by from Montreal

    Love the phone, hate trying to charge it with these horribly made cables. My cable died after 3 months and i had even been trying to take care of it cause i knew how flimsy they are. Apple should be replacing these free of charge rather then charging over 20$ a pop for a cable!!

    Garbage.

    • Written by from Hamden

    This cable is junk. I have never had a cable die on me like the ones made for the iPhone 5. I bought generic ones on eBay a while back, just to have extras. I thought they all died because they were cheap but then my original one started doing the same thing. I've only had it just over a year. Apple needs to figure this one out ASAP. $20 a pop is not cool.

    Disappointed and expensive!

    • Written by

    I have an iPhone 5 and my son has an iPhone 4 and I must say we both LOVE our phones except for the garbage cords they come with!!! In the past six months my son has gone through 3 cords and I have gone through 4 myself. To be on the 4th and 5th cords simply because they are cheaply made is absolutely ridiculous! To realize we are close to $200 in just cords is awful. I think it really stinks that brand new these phones are $500+, yet they can't make a cord that lasts the life of the phone. Is it really necessary to have to repeatedly buy the same accessory over the WHOLE life span of your phones?? I suppose it is of we want to charge our phones!

    Poor Apple product...

    • Written by from Bisbee

    I got my iPhone 5 last September and already my cord doesn't work. At first I thought I had just been more rough with it than usual and that's why it had quite working, but after reading all of the other reviews, I realized that it was in fact just the cord. I got my iPod classic six years ago and the iPod quite working (last year) before the 30-pin adapter did (and it's still of use), so I'm really surprised that Apple made such a flimsy product, especially in comparison to the 30-pin adapter, which never gave me any problems. I'm buying the cord again because I have to if I want to be able to use my phone, but I really hope Apple is working on making a more durable cord so we're not having to buy them every 5 months, regardless of how much money it's making them.

    STUPID!

    • Written by from Oslo

    I got my iPod touch 5th gen. 32GB as a gift, it's not really a gift if the stupid charger breaks the 3rd month of use! When I charge it, it goes like this (Charging-3sec.-NotCharging-3sec.-Charging-3sec.-NotCharging) It is so irritating! I want a new DURABLE cable when I get a new one with my warranty! Shame on you Apple! You can do better!! My brother has had a 30pin connector for two years and it works perfectly!!

    The 2 meter is not as flimsy

    • Written by from Germantown

    I've been though a few of these .5 m, but the 2 meter cable has a thicker cord and appears to be holding up a lot better. I will be buying the 2 meter if another .5 meter one breaks.

    One word - TERRIBLE!!!

    • Written by from reedsville

    My family all went and bought 4 phones together. Which means we got 4 chargers. Even 2 months has not passed when mine gave out. When the 4th month mark hit another one gave out. The other 2 were a little better. At 7 months both were falling apart and had to be taped together by duct tape! Although, duct tape fixes everything, It did not take long for the 3rd charger to give out. We only have 1 charger left, and if I could only upload a picture: you would not recognize it!!! This is the reason why I have to buy another brand new charger in hopes it will last me longer than the others! Also, everyone who used these chargers where very careful and gentle!! Now I have to pay 80 dollars for only 4 chargers!!!

    The newer, the worse.

    • Written by from Ann Arbor

    I've seen in the high rated stars that all the people that have had the lightning cable have had it for about a year or more. When I see the one star ratings, I see that those people including myself have had the lightning cable for only about 6 months at most, usually now ranging between 3-4 months truthfully. I would like to say that Apple probably purposefully made the cords cheaper and cheaper as the iPhone 5c and 5s along with the newer iPads to get a better and much higher profit as people now begin to transition. A year ago, the iPhone 5 wasn't so so popular and wasn't used as much because people were still very content with their versions of iPhone 4s and whatnot. This has become a very big deal for many people, and I ask of Apple to change it.

    A very dainty, low-grade cable.

    • Written by from Springville

    The cable that came with my iphone 5S lasted me only 4 months then stopped working. You wouldn't expect such a low-grade cable to be sold for this much money.
