    Completely Useless

    • Written by from Paramus

    I've had an iPhone 5 for just over a year and I've been through 7 of these. They stop working constantly and there's nothing that can be done to fix that, and they aren't cheap. iPhone 4 cords are frayed, bent, and/or hanging by one small wire and still work completely fine. I don't how these continuously break. There's nothing anyone can do because this is the only way to charge an iPhone 5 but it's a complete scam. They shouldn't have changed the charger in the first place.

    Inferior product for a brand that boast "superior" quality.

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    There is nothing that I could possibly write that hasn't been already said, therefore I will just add to the justified complaints of a product that is poorly made. These charging cables for the Iphone 5 are simply laughable and despicable. This is coming from someone who takes care of his possessions. I have multiple charging cables, so the fact that I have to replace them within a year of each other is infuriating and annoying. Apple, Do better. You can create cutting-edge technology, but can't find a way to make a more durable charging cable? It makes the company look like a complete joke. I'm sick and tired of it. DO BETTER.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Binbrook

    Approaching two years, I am still on my FIRST lightning cable and absolutely nothing wrong with it. In fact, I ordered two extras when it first came out (one for my car and one for work) and they're all in mint condition still. I have NO idea what you people are doing with your cables that are causing them to break so quickly.

    Cable is worthless

    • Written by from Virginia Beach

    I've had to replace this cable 3 times now. It just stops working. Very upsetting, and whats worse is its not like this is something that you can do without. You need the cable to be able to charge your phone. Apple needs to come up with something that is more durable and lasts. I've also had similiar problems with my cable for my IPHONE 4S, same issue. So in my opinon it is the quality of the product. It absolutely stinks!

    Just read all of the other terrible reviews. Cable came apart right where it attaches to the lightening plug. Total garbage. Wish I could give it 0 stars.

    broke after 7 months!!!

    • Written by from El Dorado Hills

    Wow, never thought I would find a rotten apple in the tree *pun intended*!!!! I bought this phone in November and the charger broke in June!!! It said it could not support accessory!!!!! I tried everything to get it to work, but nothing helped. The same thing happened to my friend! She had to buy a new one. I hope apple can fix it in the next generation of products. Very disappointing.

    Horrible

    • Written by from Milwaukee

    Breaks down after only a few months of totally normal use. I've gone through 2 of them in the past 7 months and now have to go get another, and all the charger does is sit in the same place. In every instance the connection would get worse and worse until finally the lightning head would break. In this last instance the lightning head broke completely off. Its really annoying having to worry about how long each one will last since it's absolutely necessary to have for the phone to not be a really expensive paper weight. It might not seem like much but having to throw away an extra twenty some bucks every few months on a cord gets aggravating after the third time it happens. Garbage

    Works perfectly fine

    • Written by from Plano

    I've had 2 of these ever since I got my iPhone 5. I've used them pretty much every day, lots of the time pulling by the cord, and they are still working great. I don't understand how so many could be breaking after a few days...

    terrible

    • Written by from hillsdale

    these chargers don't even deserve one star. apple really disappointed with this one. i owned my iPhone 5s for a mere 3 months before the charger that came with it broke. now every week or two I'm picking up a new one from all different stores because every charger made for the 5 and up is complete garbage. every single one of my friends have the same exact problem as well. if apple doesn't fix this problem, it could be a deal breaker when upgrading my phone in a couple months!!

    Junk. Seriously. And incredibly overpriced.

    • Written by from Newburgh

    I've had iPhones, iPads, and iPods since the beginning, and all of the cords are still in great shape except the 5s. This one broke in only a couple months, just sitting in the same plug in the same place. The flimsy little wires are broken right by the end of the connector. I am very annoyed that I have to pay $19 for another one.

    Very poor quality

    • Written by from Kingston

    I agree with other comments I am now on my 4th cable it is very week at the point where the lead goes into the plug that goes into the actual device not the USB mains plug end. I have never ever had a problem with a charging lead for a nokia samsung or other android device. Apple you need to design something more robust these leads should last the life time if the device which in this day and age 3-5 years!!!

    Very disappointed in the cord. Never any issues with the phone. I have had the 5 for a year and gone through 4 cords. Apple better do something before it loses out to superior other brands. I would personally never buy this phone or cord type again.

    • Written by from mentor

    My first cord broke about a month ago and I got an off brand one to replace it. The new one was poor quality and broke three days ago so I decided to get the real thing. I ordered a new one that day and was extremely happy with how fast it got here plus the text alerts where very helpful. The first cord broke completely because of me, but the second off brand charger broke by itself. I have absolutely no complaints and highly recommend getting the apple brand to avoid terribly made rip offs.

    Good Cable

    • Written by from EDMONTON

    This cable, due to the connector redesign, is much more robust than the older 30-pin version. My cable has worked fine for nearly two years with my iPhone 5, and it feels stronger than the previous version.
