I have had 4 of these in the past month and have had the same problem with each. They work fine until i suspect a wire comes loose I have had 4 of these in the past month and have had the same problem with each. They work fine until i suspect a wire comes loose in the top of the cable (where it enters the device), then it will only work when it is pulled or pushed into certain directions, until eventually it will not work at all. Im sick of wasting money on these cablels. A new cable must be brought out. …

The cable made for break
I'm really angry today , my usb cable broke again , last night I was suddenly ill and I decided, rather than calling ambulance in I'm really angry today , my usb cable broke again , last night I was suddenly ill and I decided, rather than calling ambulance in this time , I will make an appointment with my gp in early morning,
putted my phone on charge, I found in the morning it's only 2% , tried to call my gp and the phone turn off , when I managed to charge the phone again and it's too late, I had to go emergency.
The cable like new but inside broke , it's luck of quality . It's shame of apple after that long time they couldn't produce a quality charger!
Finally I phoned apple customer care, they are happy to replace. But I'm not happy with it, I said send me a pair of UBS cable one as spare as one break I can use , because you don't know any time it could be break.
Or sell the cable with under £5,,
why apple sell it for £15, it even doesn't worth for £5.
I want to say to apple ,, this cable doesn't cost to made more than £5 pound includes all cost as ready to sell, so why you sell it for £15, people use this cable use to charge iPhones not sumsung phones, make customer happy by supplying accessories with minimum price , this way apple can be more popular. People already paid a lot with main device. What else you want? Touch the sky ! But don't forget you might fall down to ground at any time. Also don't forget the past!
Best advice guys don't trust it, always keep a spare cable .. …

There's no damage to the cables at all whatsoe I have 2 iPads less than a month old and both charging cables just stopped working. There's no damage to the cables at all whatsoever they just stop working. These are poorly made and not worth anything!

I have had the apple iphone 5 for 5 months now and have bought Atleast 5 chargers. I am careful and try not to bend them. But they I have had the apple iphone 5 for 5 months now and have bought Atleast 5 chargers. I am careful and try not to bend them. But they still end up breaking. I use it for maybe a month (or less). Then I will plug it In one day and it will say "this accessory may not be supported on this device" after that, I can charge it. But only at like 3 different angles. And then one day, it will completly stop working. I have always been happy with apples products but these USB cables are the worst product I have seen. Such poor work for such an amazing company.
If they keep this up for the iPhone 6, I may not even get the iPhone 6.
But we will see what happens when they make the new USB cable for the iPhone 6. Very poor work, apple. …
