    Terrible Cable

    As is the case with so many other reviewers, the lightening to USB Cable for my IPad broke after just a few months. For what we pay for Apple products, we should not have to pour money into poorly constructed cables. Fix this Apple!

    Just perfect!

    I have bought i phone 5s last year in March and this charger simply works despite me drugging it around at work,constantly moving it about my premises and it simply works. The same apply's for my daughters treatment. She is rather careless when comes to charges,but again it is miraculously not broken yet. I have to get more as they are simply "missing" in our house :-D. I am very happy with it.

    Keeps Breaking!!!!

    Cable is very weak at the point where it connects to the lightning end.... Old-style cables were really tough and lasted for years, but these are quite frankly, pathetic. If you even wiggle them or bend it slightly it breaks inside; i've spent for fortune on these because my kids aren't as careful as me, but then they shouldn't need to be cos the cable should be tougher.... PLEASE apple sort it out! I can buy a 3rd part cable that's 50 times tougher... in fact that's exactly what i will be doing from now.

    Make them thicker!

    Apple is making the wires of their chargers thinner and thinner, Personally I don't care how thick they are so they don't break as often as they do!

    SAVE YOUR MONEY!

    Go ahead and save your money by buying a non-approved cable. These are no better. You'll get 2-4 months from a non approved one, but spend $2-3 on it. Buy ten of the non-approved ones and you'll come out way ahead.

    Steve Jobs is rolling over in his grave. These things are some of the most important apple products made, but they don't last more than a few months. Pathetic.

    I wish I could give zero stars.

    I am convinced that the people who wrote the 5 star reviews were all paid by Apple because these cords are absolutely atrocious. I have personally been through at least 5 of these cords in just over a year and a half with my iPhone 5s. It really puzzles me that Apple charges $20 for an item of such poor quality and does not care enough about their users to produce a product with quality that matches that value. The point at which I lost all faith was when I discovered that my MacBook Pro charge was constructed with the same terrible quality and cost nearly 80 dollars to replace. Apple cares nothing about its users, as it continues to release these cheap products. At the end of contract I will consider moving to a new non Apple phone.

    Very poor

    I use my iPad on a regular basis. I look after my cables but for some unknown reason I have to buy a new lightening cable virtually every 2 months. I do not carry my cable around and I recharge each night. Some comments I have read suggest that you should always unplug holding the end connector and not the wire. I do this and they still fail. However in most other manufacturing anomalies the manufacturer listens to all their customers and tries to resolve the problem. I don't see this happening. I like my 2 iPads bt I must admit, sadly, I may go back to the 'dark side'. Think of something guys, it is only a cable but it really is ...........

    does not last!

    the average life span of these chargers seems to be 6 months! but there's nothing you can do about it because you need one to charge your phone. I hope they fix these soon or at least replace them.

    hate this product!!

    I am so angry, i am currently on my second wire and i am going to have to buy a third as my phone has stopped being charged by the cable. it is really criminal that apple charges you a minimum of 500 pounds for the phone and then charges another 15 pound every time their obviously faulty cable stops working which for me is every 4-6 months . i will never be buying an iPhone ever again.

    And another one...

    I'm not sure what it is about these cords that makes it so they don't last past a few months, but these cords don't last past a few months. Then end where it plugs into your phone gets all bent or twisted and so the wires inside stop working. Apple should just make these cords like they were making the 30-pin, because those things lasted forever. I had my iPod for six years and in that time I needed to replace that cord maybe 2 or 3 times... and never because the cord broke, but because they were lost. I'm so annoyed that I have to pay $20 to replace the cord only to have it break on me a few months from now anyway. They could at least make them cheaper since they're obviously not made well.

    Awful Cord

    The Lightning cords are terrible. My wife and our daughter have an iPhone and two iPads that use these cords. We have been lucky to get more than three months use out of these. The original cords lasted 9 - 12 months. The replacements are garbage. On the other hand the 30 pin cord I am using on my iPhone 4 is four years old an still functions as intended. Get it together Apple. Replacement Lightning cables should be free of charge until you can design a quality, reliable part. If I could give these cords zero stars I would.

    I hate apple chargers

    World's worst phone is iPhone because we have 3 apple products, 2 iPhone and 1 ipad we always found problems using the charger. The biggest problem is the charger and it breaks many times in a year going and coming and the journey and buying it over and over is just a big hastle and a major waste of time. I suggest not to buy it , it's a waste of money!!!

    HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE

    This is the most poorly crafted product I have ever had the misfortune of buying. I bought my daughter an iPhone for her bday in August '14, by December her charger was on its last leg. So, I purchased another one the day before Christmas. My daughter is not allowed to use her phone on school days and shes only allowed to charge it in the living room area (hoping less use of it would keep me from buying another one) its now only February and when she came home from school today she unplugged her phone to find that the usb came off inside her phone. IM THOROUGHLY DISGUSTED! Apple will only replace the original charger the phone came with and the mobile carrier only has a 30 DAY WARRANTY. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE!

    Shoddy product at ripoff prices.

    I have had to replace this cable 3 times, all within 2-3 months of purchase. I do not misuse the cables, but they inexplicably stop working. Judging by these reviews, I am not the only one to have this problem. To sell such inferior products at such ridiculous prices is completely unacceptable from Apple.

    Truly Awful

    Apple's standard seen to be falling. This cord gets a bulge at the end of it and fails to connect reliably after a few months.
