    Weak Cord

    • Written by from Garland

    Lightning USB Cable is just that quick hit of lightning and it's done. The cord breaks at the connection to the phone just with normal use. Apple please make a better product.

    Too much money for such low quality!

    • Written by from MURFREESBORO

    I have had my iphone 5 for less than a year and I now have to buy a 4th cord! For $20 this is ridiculous. Very low quality. Apple makes such good products but their cords/chargers are horrible. Please work on this Apple!

    Multi Lightning Connector Packs and Poor Cord Quality

    • Written by from Seymour

    Like all other owners of Apple iOS devices I am making the transition from the old Apple Connectors to the new Lightning Connectors. It would make sense to provide multi cord packs to upgrade all the additional chargers we seem to have accumulated over time. It would seem only third party manufacturers are providing such a product. I am always reluctant to purchase non genuine products such as cords as genuine ones seem to last longer. This was certainly true with Nokia before I made the transition to iPhone a few years ago.

    I must admit though the quality of Apple cords is disappointingly poor in comparison. The cord fatigues rapidly where it enters the connector and the wire fractures inside the insulation. Considering the amount of use these cords have, upgraded cords are in order!!!

    Cheap Design

    • Written by from winchester

    Horribly designed. Mine broke within 6 months of buying my iPhone 5. Everyone I know who has the iPhone 5 has had their charger break within this time period of regular use. This is ridiculous.

    Third cord already!

    • Written by from Clarendon Hills

    This is the third cord I've ordered for my daughter's iphone 5 in six months. She was convinced that something was wrong with her phone that it was breaking all of the cords, but now that I see the other reviews, I see that we are not alone. With all of this negative feedback, I can't believe that Apple hasn't tackled this and fixed it yet. I think we should all get free cords.

    Poor quality charger

    • Written by from Rolling Meadows

    Like most others reviewing this product, the sheathing on my cord broke open right below the lightning adapter, exposing the wires. It is only used in my car and therefore has not had much wear and tear at all. It happened randomly and all of the sudden, I smelled a strong burning smell in my car and this is a very dangerous issue. Now I am forced to buy another charger for 20.00, knowing that it is probably going to happen again. For the amount of money apple charges for their products, they should be high quality, and more importantly not pose safety hazards.

    Charger cord

    • Written by from Baltimore

    I am very displeased about the charger cords. I've had my phone almost 10 months now and I have got through 2 charger cords. I never had this problem with my iPod charger. Either Apple fixes it, or I'll go back to being an Android user. Because I will not pay another $19.00 for a lousy charger to break in under a few months.

    Charger not accessible

    • Written by from Conyers

    I just bought this charger before the Ios7 update and a week after that it started to not work. I don't see why this happens, when it's a apple charger. Just a waste of 20 dollars. I'm really thinking about selling my product and switching to a metro or something.

    worthless

    • Written by from Seattle

    come on apple, you can do better than this. the sheath of the cord is shredded, making charging impossible unless i just so happen to angle the plug-in just right after cursing at it for 15 mins. you guys need to fix this

    Is anyone happy with this product?

    • Written by from Ottawa

    My first cord frayed, my replacement just stopped working. My cables have lasted about 6 months each, so I guess I'm doing better than a lot of others.

    Very disappointed.

    • Written by from calera

    I have recently (in the last few months) updated my iPhone 4 to the iPhone 5. I have one charger next to my bed and it has not moved since I bought the phone. Now, all of the sudden, the charger just stopped charging. I still have chargers from the first iPhone and various iPods that work perfectly fine. It is sad that Apple, who is supposed to be the best, would make such a product that breaks so easily. Now that I have provided most of my family with their own iPhone 5, I am going to hate telling them they will have to spend more money just to provide another charger for their phone. Very disappointed in Apple and their lack of ability to continue to make their products last. If you want to be the best, do not make a product that does not last more than 3 months.

    Very frustrating- I give it no stars

    • Written by from Beulah

    My first cable that I got with my new iphone broke at the base of the plug into the phone connection within a few weeks of normal use. I thought maybe I had gotten a faulty one but after the new one that I thought was expensive and strong did the same thing a few hours ago I am not very happy and feel that apple needs to improve their product and send me a couple new cables until they resolve the issue.

    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!

    Apple needs to fix this!

    • Written by from Dillsburg

    I am just over 1 year with my iphone 5 and within the last 2 weeks I have had 3 out of 4 cables stop working. They are all splitting under the head like everyone else's. I leave it plugged into my bedroom at the nightstand and it lays flat every night. Not sure what else I could do to make it work. Very irritated that I have to buy yet another.

    Awful and overpriced

    • Written by from Apex

    The charger is extremely unreliable. It is extremely overpriced and i would not reccomend getting a iphone 5 5s or 5c because of how flimsy unreliable and overpriced this charger is. I am extremely dissapointed and i need a third charger after careful care of the first two. Ive only had my iphone 5 for about 6 months now and i regret it terribly.

    I have had to buy a new lightening cable every month and a half to 2 months. It would always short out and need to be held at a certain angle to work. Yet the old charging cables would last for year.

    wears out fast

    • Written by from Chicago

    This cable is a real work of art.. the plastic cracked and eventually exposed the wires.. it's very odd because all I do with it is plug it into the computer. Sure, I do transport it in my bag, but have always treated it gently.
    Like other reviewers say, I never had this issue with all the changers I had for the other iphones.
