    Iphone 5 chargers

    I have had my IPhone 5s for 9 months and I have went through 6 apple chargers... what is the problem?? I am always super careful with my chargers and they still continue to stop charging after about a month and a half. Before my IPhone 5s I had and IPhone 4 and the two years I had it I only had 1 charger...

    You had one job, Lightning cable ...

    ONE JOB. Broke after 7 or 8 months, pins corroded, no charging, no connection to my mac.

    Horrible, Criminal, Just Plain Awful

    This is one of the main reasons I am getting a Galaxy 5 my next upgrade. For those of you who are more anal-retentive than the rest of us: I never had to use extra care with micro-USB or 30 pins. I shouldn't have to be gentle with my cable because Apple is going downhill in quality. Other reasons I'm ditching the glitch and making the switch: iOS 7 barred us for using lightning cables of superior quality because they aren't authorized; that God-awful U2 album you gave me without asking; and Bendgate. Apple, your quality and practices are turning away even the die-hards. Get it together. Are you nothing without Jobs?

    Lightning fast in turnover

    I've had 2 lightning cables so far, I'm on my way to my third one. I bought the second one this past march and stopped working on me yesterday. I had to bend it in so many ways to charge my phone. I am tired of wasting money on this piece of garbage. I am only forced to give this product 1 star because it won't let me give 0 stars which it rightfully deserves! Get it together Apple!

    Apple lightning cable review

    I have a household of 4. 42, 15, 12, 11 year olds. I have purchased COUNTLESS apple lightning cables in several different lengths....they ALL FAIL! They are WAY overpriced for the quality and length of time that they last!!!! I have extension cords in the garage that I have owned for 20+years that have NEVER FAILED!

    APPLE PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR CUSTOMERS! FIX YOUR CABLES! WE WILL PAY A PREMIUM FOR ONE THAT LASTS 20 YEARS!!!!!! IF YOU CAN ENGINEER AN IPHONE YOU CAN ENGINEER A CABLE THAT LASTS!!!!!!

    DO IT! YOUR CABLES GET ZERO STARS!!!!

    If iCould give less than one star, iWould!

    for the past 10 years my families media life has revolved arounds iMacs,iPods , iPhones and iPads the lot basically, and there isn't a brand that iLove more but there are more than 5 lightening USB cables in the house and only one works without having to hold in a peculiar way!i brought a 2M lighting cable only a month and 2 weeks ago and i already have to spend another £25 for a new one! this problem has been around for ages and not just with the new lightening cables this issue must be addressed as this is an inconvenience for many around the world!

    Cord frays and stops working.

    The outer coating on this cord started to fray after only a few months. The inner wires didn't fare much better and the cord stopped working shortly after. I've owned Apple products for years and didn't have problems like this with the 30 pin cables. for what these cables cost they should last longer. I only gave the product one star because zero isn't an option.

    Lightening Cable poor design

    We have 3 iPads and have gone through 5 cables ,just returned one today at an Apple store ,was told it failed because you must not bend them at the lightening end! .There is no support on the cable to prevent bending ,when will Apple wake and redesign the cable.

    Over priced! Extortion

    The lightning cable is poorly insulated with a cheap soft plastic, which if bent the slightest will break. The cable is priced currently at $25 AUST. Which is pure extortion. Let's be completely honest here. The cable is most likely manufactured for less than $1 and is then sold for $25 to the stupid sheeplike animals they call consumers. Oh yeah fantastic. Brilliant. Superb. Bravo. Thank you Apple for a product aimed for redundancy.

    Worst charger cable out there!

    I have bought several of these cables and everyone of them broke, and I own the iPod touch 5th generation. They're horrible, I don't like what apple has done with this new charger cable. They need to change it or go back to the old one. This one just breaks to easy and only lasts a couple months. Apple needs to do something because a ton of people are disappointed in this product. They need to change the cable to something a little more sturdy.

    Worst charger ever

    I've had to replace at least 15 times within the past year and a half. Ridiculous.

    Lightning Cable More Like Lightning FAIL

    If I could rate this product a zero I would. These cables break so fast and Apple should give a replacement to everyone who purchased an iPhone 5 & up. I have been an Apple user since the first iPhone was released and the 30 pin charger has never given me any problems up until i purchased my iPhone 5. With so much thought and effort into upgrading the iPhone generations, Apple should definitely consider in redesigning the Lightning Cable

    **Another note- from frustration I have opened up 3 Apple chargers once they stopped working and I have noticed that for some reason it is always the little red wire that is always broken and not allowing all of the cables to give the full power into charging the iPhone.
    Apple need to fix these "little" problems before even more people decide to switch from Apple products to Samsung, HTC Android, and LG phones.**

    Poor Quality

    mine has worn-out out after 1 year of usage.
    Apple should really do something since most of the reviews are 1 star and this cable is not a low-cost one....

    NOT HAPPY

    I have lost count of how many replacement cables I've bought. RIDICULOUS. Sort it out, Apple cos it's driving me crazy.
    What's worse is I had to rate it with one star because there was no option for zero stars.

    The lighting connector is too bad

    I love all apple product, bud the lighting cable for Iphone 5 is extremely bad. I bought three original lighting cables and all of them has been damaged.
    Apple should sustantially improve the quality of this cable.

    Shouldn't this last longer than the phone

    why oh why can't Apple create a charger that lasts? Within a couple months, the chargers get a turtleneck, and then quits charging your phone... Micro USB never has a problem. man-up apple

    Buy the cloth one from radio shack

    I have never liked apple cables from the macbook charger to the 30 pin connector and now the lightning cable. they always fall apart really fast. the coating on the cable will quickly split wrinkle and eventually your cable will stop working. this is the only apple product i will never buy. and its way over priced. it deserves a no star and a bad apple.

    Terrible quality.

    I admit I like the lightning part of the connector but the wire and jacket is just plain useless. Terrible quality. It comes apart within a few months. Apple needs to reinforce the jacket at the two ends of the cord. Also, the jacket literally discolored and began cracking off in little bits. These should have lifetime warranty because this is unacceptable.

    And it's worse if you use a case

    I've had a half a dozen cables fail, all at the connector end. It is made worse as I have a LifeProof case which further recesses the lightning connector so am even more likely to tug on the cable instead of the body of the connector. Also, you can't use the i4 to i5 adapters as the lightning end is to short and can't reach the connector thru the case.
    And it doesn't seem to matter if it's an apple cable or secondary brand, the cable that came with the phone failed within a month, and that was before I bought the case. I'm about ready to make an expoy mold to extend the body and provide a better grip or add heat shrink tubing to reinforce the connector/cable interface. You have to be careful as the lightning connector has chips on both sides inside the connector body.
    Definitely a poor design that Apple apparently failed to test and has not address. A slight lengthening of the body, a slight flare and surface texturing would make it easier to remove without stressing the cable where it meets the body (such as when your fingers slip off the smooth connector surface. I'd give it zero stars but the software won't let you.
