    15 pound a month to charge your iPhone

    Had my iPhone less than 4 weeks, on my 2nd lightning cable now... This cable is actually worse than the "L" connector power adaptor for my MacBook. Unfortunately I cannot recommend an acceptable replacement as I haven't found one yet. but when I do I will be using it instead.

    Apple Accessories were pioneered with an 18 month expected product life cycle, this particular accessory appears to have an 18 hour life cycle.

    way too short

    Apple claims to create human centered designs but they continue to offer ridiculously short charger cables, that may work while you set aside the device while you charge it, but will not work if you want to work on the device while you are charging it. Apple, where is the human center in this design? Offer charging cables that are 6 feet or 9 feet long.

    Forever breaking!

    I have gone through 3 cords in the last 8 months! Now my phones on 7% and I can't charge it until tomorrow when I can get a cheaper one, since they seem to last longer! The wires always break!!! You should work on improving the design of where the cord meets the plug in bit as the wires always break.

    Garbage.

    3 cables, going to be 4 soon in just over a year.

    Great product! Just the absolute best if you love dumping money on subpar cables.

    I will be looking at alternatives when my contract is up.

    Poor Quality - If I could have I would have rated it no stars.

    I know this item is a frequently used item and is susceptible to wear and tear however this is now the 3rd cable I have had to replace in less that 12 months. Come on Apple, Use some of your innovation and "amazing" design and make the cable more durable.

    Expensive product with no quality.

    Within a year, i have gone through 2 wall chargers and three cords for my iPone5.
    This is very disappointing, since these parts are very expensive. Do they even tested their products for a while before introduce them to the public?
    There is no excuse what so ever for Apple to make such inferior products. This is showing me that Apple no longer cares for the quality of their products.
    I am now purchasing Galaxy s5 and forget apple products forever.

    Worthy of a class-action suit

    This cable is terrible for the price. I'm careful and this is still my fourth cable in a year. Apple really needs to step up its game, bad enough the phone is four-five hundred I don't need to spend another hundred on cables to charge. Should be unlimited replacements for the duration of the phone.

    the worst chargers ever made,

    the worst chargers ever made, i've bought 6 lightning usb cables already and it always break i even put spring to the end so that it will not break but unfortunately they are doing this so they will profit more because of their low grade lightning USB... Thinking of switching to Samsung or Sony... WORST CHARGERS!!

    Very bad quality product

    I have only ever bought official Apple accessories for my phone especially when it comes to chargers and cables. This is because I know the cable for charging is important and using a cheap after market cable can be very bad for the phone and in extreme cases blow up your I-phone. So I have spent lots of money just for the apple cables but they keep breaking on me. I have had 3 now and all 3 are breaking at the end where the wire connects to the lightning tip. It is so disappointing to keep on buying cables and have them break...!!! Apple really have to buck up or I will not be buying from them any longer. I have had I phones since the i phone 3 and that’s gonna stop if there are no improvements. Its not even as if i mistreat
    the cable......its at my office desk and all i do is plug it in everyday and i dont even pull it by the cord.....!! Apple, you better shape up or ship out....!!! how can they produce such good high quality products but have bad vital accessories like this???

    Terrible

    I've had two of these break in the space of a month. Both times the connection became loose next to the lightning plug.

    Disposable product?

    It's obvious that these charging cords have a flaw. I'm here to order a replacement cord for the same reason as everyone else who has left 1 star reviews. It has a design flaw which leads to it failing after a few month's wear and tear. I do not treat it badly. Why would you mistreat a cord that you need/depend upon? Apple should read these reviews and change the design, not to mention refund us for the costs of buying replacements!

    Broken, just like most people's I know

    The 30-pin connector end of the cord is frayed and metal/wire is exposed. Almost all of my friends who have the 5 have had the same problem. Ridiculous.

    NEGATIVE 1 STAR IF I COULD

    i have 6 cords in a drawer and NONE of them work! I currently have 4 apple devices at my house and the only way to charge any of them is on a docking station. I am seriously considering going back to the a house of Droids because I refuse to spend anymore money on a cable that is sure to fail!

    Just awful!! :-(

    Usb to Lightning cable breaking

    I'm surprised to be honest that given years of using apple products the I have to keep buying new cables for my 5s phone. I thought apple were above all that and their products used the latest and best design features. This usb to lightning cable is worst charging cable I have ever used on any item. Apple you need to go back to the old one or make one that lasts. I have gone through 3 in the past 9 months with just normal home charging.

    Lightning Wire

    I don't think I've ever written a review on anything before, but this cable angered me off enough to get me to start. Seriously? I have been using apple products ever since the G3 (or whatever it was called) came out. I have never experienced anything like this. There is only a limit to the amount of times I'm willing to buy the same charger with its redicilous one month expiration date before I just have to get a different phone.

    It Breaks Quickly

    I bought my iPhone last December. The charger works very well and I expected it will prosper a year or more, but it didn't. It suddenly broke today and there's no reason why. I hope apple improves their charger quality.

    Terrible Cable

    Awful cable. I've fried three of them in 6 months. Why? I shouldn't have to spend gratuitous amounts of money to charge my phone. Offer replacement cables, you're the ones who screwed up.

    cables continue to break

    I am so tired of having to buy new lightning cables every few months. We have multiple iPhone 5s in our house and the cables seem to become weak right below the area where the cable is connected to the lightning connection. The white shielding on the outside is not damaged, but it's obvious when you jiggle the cable that the problem is in that area, due I guess, to stress on the cable from normal use. At $20 a pop, just for the cable, I'm sick of constantly having to buy them. Conversely, all my old 30 pin cables still work. All of them. And I have acquired at least 8 or 9 over the years. Build a better cable with more reinforcement below the connector and better protection of all that super specialized circuitry. Please. It is ridiculous for a cable to be this delicate for a MOBILE device.
