    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.

    Worst Charger Ever!

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I have had to replace this charger because it did not work for some reason and I am thinking of switching to samsung if this continues. Brakes after normal use. Worst product I have ever used!

    Terrible!!

    • Written by from Midland

    I can't believe how terribly made the new lightning cords for the iPhone 5 and 5s are! I think this will be the very last iPhone I will buy. I didn't have my iPhone 5 a year and the cord came apart and stopped working. I have had my iPhone 5s for exactly a year now and guess what? The cable is messing up. I am glad to See everyone is having this exact same issue. It's sad to see how downhill apple has gone. Upgrade time Comes and I will be getting a Samsung.

    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

    Horrible Disappointment

    • Written by from Columbus

    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.

    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!!!
