    disappointing

    The cable lasted a little over a year of normal use, bedisde, charging my iphone every night. The part of the cable just below the lightning jack seems worn out, apparently from bending (again, normal use, honestly), and now the connection drops randomly. So I have to replace it. For twenty bucks you'd expect the thing to be a bit more durable.

    Rubbish

    We have at least FIVE of these cables. They are all broken.

    The Least Durable

    If you're looking for a cable that would last a week, Apple's lightning to USB Cable will surely be just the thing you have been searching for all your life!

    Hopeless

    Like almost everyone else here my lightning cable got crinkled up at the lightning end hence stopped working. Hasn't pealed or anything just a little crinkle. Talked to the guys at Apple seeing as I was nearby and they just said I abused it and that's why it doesn't work anymore. That's just a load of rubbish. How come everyone has the same problem. Does everyone abuse their chargers? Don't think so. I've got a 30 pin charger from an original iPod Touch and it's still going strong. Get you act together Apple and stop ripping everyone off. The chargers are poorly made and everyone knows it.

    WORST WORST QUALITY CORD EVER MADE

    I have been through several of these cords in the past few months. What a waste to have a phone with a charger that barely lasts a couple of weeks. I have had my iPad for 3 years now and I have never changed the cord. Something must be done about this grossly inferior product. I will never buy another iPhone again once these are the cords that charge them. Sorely disappointed!!!!! I give it zero stars but 1 is the lowest they have.

    I was excited about the new charger, but WOW.

    Barely works. I'm going to try a new one to see if there's just a flub in my cable somewhere. Having a phone you can't charge reliably means I'll be switching to Droid if this continues. What an epic failure, Apple.

    This Cable is TERRIBLE

    I have 3 iphone 5s in my house. So far I have probably gone through $200 worth of cables. There is no difference between Apple cords and imitations. They are all BAD. They only work for a couple of months or days and then break. The only thing I have that has consistently worked is the adapter cable, but for $29.99 that's a pretty ridiculous price. I am very disappointed in this product. At this moment I have 4 cables and only one works. It is wrapped with electrical tape because in addition to the obvious problems, the construction is so weak that unless you keep everything pin straight, the plastic around the wires wears away...

    Poor product from Apple

    These cables kink easily and break in short order. I'm not rough on them, and have not had any other cable ever break, from any manufacturer. These are defective and should be recalled, especially for the price charged

    Garbage!

    I have had to buy three of these since upgrading to the iPhone 5. Never had a problem with the old design!

    It doesn't last.

    I have been through so many of these cords in the past couple of years. The old cord that I had with my iPhone 4 was much more durable and lasted. I have had my iPhone 5 for a little over a year and have been through 4 cords.. this is getting pretty expensive and I think Apple needs to start backing their product. I can keep affording to purchase a new cord every couple of months. It's getting pretty ridiculous.

    Terrible

    I can only use a charger for about 2-3 months before it breaks at the pin. FED UP TP THE BACK TEETH Apple don't care they get income but I'm a pensioner and can't afford it. It is also a design fault as the lead is so short. If you use a connector to extend it then the charge takes HOURS. Not at all happy, I am going to try and find a docking station or charging mat. SHAME ON YOU APPLE. Oh if you could give less than 1 star I would have!

    Worst piece of #%€*

    3 feet is 2 feet to long or 3 feet to short. At home 3 doesn't let you sit more then a foot away from the wall. In the car it won't reach the back. This wouldn't be such a problem if this thing lasted as long as the phone. But nope The quality is absolutely abysmal if you use your cord more than once a day you going to need to buy a boat two of them to get you through one year. The cord where's out right at the very tip phrase the metal in the inside and periodically lights on fire I would give this zero if I could but I can't. Ps I've never had one problems with my USB micro that's 6 feet not one. Build a better cord.

    Iphone 5 chargers!!!!

    I have probably spent 200.00 in chargers!! this is outrageous!! We have had our iphone 5's since about February or around there and have had to buy a ton of charges. There is nothing wrong with the cords, we don't yank on them or misuse them. When we go to plug in the lovely charger, it won't charge the phone. Just beeps off and on. Until they completely won't work, I have literally been able to hold them to the phone and sometimes bend the cord a bit and it will charge for us. This is not ok! I know the Iphone 4 chargers weren't this bad. I am writing because guess what, another one of my chargers have gone bad, and I got it less than a month ago! FIX this problem!!! This is not worth having this phone if I am spending 2 and 3 hundred dollars a year on chargers!

    Extortion

    $25 AUD for <$1 worth of parts and production while eliminating third party compatibility is extortion. So disappointed in Apple; serious blemish on my perception of the brand. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

  • 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Terrible

    21$ for USB cable so expensive.. In 1 year already bought 3rd..
    stops working after 2-3 months.
    Not expected this from apple, After so many complains still not trying to improve quality.
    Its better to use 5$ compatible duplicate cable.

    Plzz fix this issue.!!!!!!!!

    worst charger ever..!!

    i have bought about 4-5 chargers from past one year just because it breaks at the ends And doesn't charge anymore. Was a big fan of apple products, now considering the quality of products I feel instead Of spending money on chargers and iPhones would have thought of other phones. It's just a waste of money spending on chargers.Don't ever buy this product.

    Very Poor Design

    Ive had iPhones since 2007 with the first model. I did have to replace the usb cables after a few years but always did so with new phones. I've got 3 lightning cables, all of which breaking at the point where the cable meets the attachments (exposing wire). I brought them to an Apple Store (as suggested by a friend who had his replaced in a similar condition) and the "genius" told me they were broken and not covered under any warranty or anything. Needless to say, I spent $20 on another cable but from a T-Mobile store. The cables are much thicker and feel sturdier.

    I'd imagine the same design used on the 30-pin cables is not practical for the thinner lightning cable and suggest apple address this issue.

    I hate this cord and the monopoly of Apple

    This cord is a piece of garbage. I have had my iPhone 5 for 2 years and gone through 4 of these cords because they always break. I am not rough with these cords but unfortunately they are made just like everything else from this generation, cheap and made to break.

    Apple, get your selves together.

    You have over a thousand complaints, step up your game! C'mon, I was hoping I could get a decent charger from here but, guess I was wrong. You guys disappoint me.
