    Cables dont last long

    Excellent cables to charge your iPhone properly and fasting than the fake ones however after a few months they tend to start coming apart by the connection into the phone. But from talking to others apple chargers have always had this down side.

    We're buying a new cable every 4-6 weeks

    The failure rate of the charging cables almost criminal.
    Speaking of iPad 5.

    I strongly recommend taking a good look at what the competition
    Has to offer with regards to tablets that won't require the upkeep
    That the iPad needs.
    I find Apple to be more "sizzle" than substance.

    5s charger

    6 months with the phone already bought 7 chargers for it . They all broke at the same place. The last one I bought I decided to put electric tape around it and still broke after 2 weeks. Very disappointed with this .

    Simply awful

    I have bought countless replacements for these little chargers and I'm sick of it. They break constantly and it's not even like I'm misusing the product or not taking proper care of it. Pathetic for a quality brand like apple to produce something like this. The old chargers worked fine and I would rather have one that works than one that's smaller and breaks all the time. Don't fix what isn't broken. I'm expecting a free replacement.

    Poor quality

    I prefer the design over the old one as it's much smaller, and reversible too. But the problem is the build quality. I've looked after my cable well, but the outer sheath has come away near the connector. I've put some tape around it but I think it will stop working soon. I got the cable with my iPhone 5 so it's less than 2 years old. My friend's cable stopped working last week and hers is just 15 months old. I talked to the manager at Apple Ginza but he would not replace it. Just told me I should buy a new one - at 2000yen! If it's so expensive, the least Apple can do is ensure it's quality. Very disappointing!

    Very durable if you treat it GENTLY!!!

    This new cable is much much better than the old 30-pin cable. It is very nice that it is reversible. A lot of people are saying that the cord near the lightning plug eventually shrivels up and stops working. Well, mine has been working perfectly ever since I got it with my iPhone 5S in May. As long as you treat your cord gently, it won't break!

    Wasted to much money

    All of my 6 chargers have broke! All in 1 year, it has poor quality and should only be worth $7-10. Apple needs to fix the charger!!!

    So easily broken...

    We have used three chargers so far and they all broke within the first 2-3 months; the third broke within 2 weeks! They are either very fragile or very poorly made. And with the amount of money they cost, they really should be upgraded. There is no point to a phone if it isn't charged. I would give this zero stars if I could.

    Absolute rubbish

    Original stopped working after 4 months, the replacement after 8 months. Off to Apple tomorrow to see if they will replace the replacement under warranty. Absolute rubbish quality.

    Charger...

    This charger is horrible. Fix the problem. I have spent lots of money for a small cable that keeps breaking. So what's the point of having the iPhone 5s anymore when it's always dead and a charger keeps breaking. Please fix this problem

    Within weeks you are in the apple store paying £15 again !

    Had my iphone 5 since it first came out , i cant count the amount of money i have had to pay for a new wire. £15 each time . Each time i have been careful to make sure the wire does not twist or comes loose . DISGRACEFUL ! I am student and depend on my phone so i have no choice but to buy a new wire . There is numerous cheap websites ' EBAY & AMAZON ' where people sell cables for as little as as £5 but they last a couple of days . There is no way of solving this problem unless apple decide to make a change and fix the problem .

    Very poor quality leads

    These Apple lightning leads are of extremely weak design I have had two genuine ones and both lasted just a few months before the cable started to come away from the plug at the item charging end in my case the ipad. They are not cheap £15.00 a go. I have tried buying them on ebay but the non apple ones last for even less time. Come on Apple design a good solid lead because the current ones are unfit for purpose.

    Cable is poorly made

    Phone is great, cable is not. I've been an apple user for over 6 years. I have 6 kids and multiple, 30 pin apple products, all without problems. Apple switches to the Lightning plug and I had to switch all the cables as we upgraded phones, IPads and Ipods.

    The problem is the Lightning Cable does not hold up at all with average use. My kids range in age of 22 to 16 and all of them have replace cables and I try to rationalize that they are younger and usually more abusive to the cable.

    I'm a 52 year old man with five lightning cables and three have failed in 10 months or less.

    Its a poor design and Apple needs to own up to it.

    no problems for 2 years

    I have had 2 of these cables since the iPhone 5 first came out. I keep one at home and one in my car adapter. I have had no problems. I love how fast they charge my phone and transfer data. I just bought a two meter one for work. I have no idea what the fuss is. Trollers?

    bad

    I am on my third lightning to usb cable. I have had the one I am using currently for about 3 months and it is already starting to break. I am looking how to file a warranty claim but they do not make it easy for you to or maybe not even possible. Definitely a waste of money to buy the apple lightning cables.

    Splitting Cable Cover

    TOTAL FAIL!!

    Title says it all!! My daughter has had nothing but problems with her Ipod touch and charging cords. We have replaced the cord several times. There has to be something better!

    1 stars because there isn't a 0

    Terrible product! Everyone I know including myself has had to keep replacing them! The wires inside aren't protected enough and get bent easily and stop working. They last a few months at best. They definitely need to create a new cable.

    Breaks easily. Worse than a Schindler elevator.

    This cable came with my iPod touch 5g when I got it as a gift for my birthday. I took care of it but after 1 year it started to bunch up at the lightning connector part and a month later it finally broke altogether. And when I plug it in to the computer it shorts out the usb port and stops working until I restart the computer. I have a micro usb to lightning adapter and that one started to not work today. Apple should improve the quality of this cable or just dump the lightning connector and go with micro usb. If I could rate 0 stars I would.

    Glad I have an HTC as my phone.
