    "Once you go Mac you never go back" - no longer is true.

    If you could give less than one star I would. Apple's cables are a joke they are not durable at all. I have bought at least 15 chargers in the past 14 months.

    Constantly having to buy new cables because the company cannot make durable products is so frustrating and infuriating not to mention their condescending staff in Apple stores.

    I have two macs, ipad, two iphones and apple TV. However I have decided that I am going to leave Apple.

    The saying "Once you go Mac you never go back" - no longer is true.

    This is extremely disappointing

    Fix your charging cables

    If it was up to me I would label all these lightning USB cables 0 stars. I have been an apple user for 4 years now and the only reason I have not moved to PC is because of the new iPad pro which makes paper usage for my company documents obsolete. Through out the years I have seen so many chargers brake in the 1st month. At first I thought it was the way I was treating it, so I had been purchasing cables for every room and every location I could be in that way I have the minimum amount of interaction that would make the charger loose its ability to do what it was made to do which is power my device that I bought. Even after trying this for many months I still had them loose its ability to power my device unless the phone was positioned at an angle. If I wanted to go through this I would of bought an antenna TV. If any one reviews these I would say fix your dumb chargers. Stop being so freaking cheap and invest on more durable wiring.

    Be really careful!

    The charger is only good if you take really good care of it. For someone who has to constantly share the cable, it's really bad quality. After a few months of use the charger gets bent, it stops to work. Then you'd have to twist the cable in weird ways to simply charge your phone.

    No issues

    I don't understand all the negative reviews. I've had mobile Apple products for 15 years and I've never had a problem with my chargers, this one included.

    SMH

    As much money we the consumers spend yearly on your extremely high in price products, you all at Apple should produce chargers that would last longer then a month. I've had my IPhone for a year now and I've had to purchase a total of 12 chargers within that year. I've had to pretty much purchase a new charger every month. Apple products are the best but your chargers not so much. Sorry not sorry....

    A disgraceful product

    I am so tired of replacing iPhone/iPad chargers. We have in our house 6 apple products but never more than 2 chargers working at a time
    It's about time Apple designed a cable that is built to last.

    I have spent a fortune on cables and I am seriously considering changing to an android phone if the problem with cables isn't fixed soon.

    Come Apple sort this out. Instead of working on another iPhone get some of your technical guys to fix this issue. Or at least make the price of replacements a lot cheaper.

    Are you willing to buy a new cable every 6 months?

    Because that's what will happen. I just don't understand how Apple can build and iPhone in all it's complexity and fails to bring a reliable cable to us.
    It's just a cable! Why can't you build one that actually works for a while??

    Simply the Best Lightning Cable Ever

    I bought this 0.5m usb lightning cable for my 64gb space grey iPhone 5s, to plug into my macbook air, but then i also bought the £35 new designed apple lightning dock stand, but i didn't want too much cable clutter around my desk, so this is the perfect cable for my macbook air to my iPhone 5s, its short, simple, and very reasonable length, which is plenty far to go around from the back of your macbook to you iPhone, if i could post an picture i would have explained it more, but unfortunately theres no way i can show it to yo, but it works perfectly and its amazing, its an must buy for all macbook, pc, laptop user or even for your car. :-)

    hopeless cables

    Apple cables are very poorly specified. The strain relief is insufficient and the cable sleeve wears easily. They have been like this since I first had an iPhone 3G. Lightning cables have not improved the reliability at all. I am constantly throwing out failed cables and buying replacements.

    It really is time Apple addressed this. It's a joke.

    Consider changing to Android

    I've never previously owned a phone that lasted longer than the charger. But my I-Phone 5 has just been one long story of terrible cables. The one that came with the phone just stopped working after a few months. I've tried cheap ones, which periodically get blocked by Apple. But today my patience has been blown. Having bought two expensive chargers which were sold as certified in an attempt to avoid 'cable not certified message' they both stopped working at the same time. No doubt some upgrade that I've not been warned about. If Apple can't produce a charger that works then it is totally unfair not to let you buy one that does. I've now got a dead phone with no means of charging. I was considering buying the new I-Phone when it comes out, but I will seriously consider changing to a phone with a reliable power supply as that is basic.

    Poor Quality

    Had my iPhone 5c for only two weeks and the charger has already broken! The wire has come out of the actual charging component that fits into the phone, exposing the copper wires. Very dangerous! Turned it off straight away, preventing a possible serious accident. Not impressed, Apple.

    Disgraceful

    Cord after cord after cord stops working after only a few months. Absolutely disgraceful Apple!!
    Must be how they make the lightning as the 30 pin cord from my iPod Classic is the same one (never replaced).

    Flimsy and Poor Quality

    The cable started fraying within a couple of months. This wasn't a one-off, the replacements did not fare any better. Not up to Apple's usual standards. My iPhone 4 cable is still fine. Interesting, considering the two sit side-by-side and the iPad cable is not subjected to additional wear and tear. Much less, as a matter of fact.

    It's simply a case of a poor quality product.

    Poor engineering design

    Might want to consider and arrange customer priorities when designing a product. You seemed to have poorly evaluated the customers needs on cable specification of life expectancy. Have bought several cables now didn't realise there was a monthly subscription fee of one cable per month for charging my phone.

    This wont come as a shock

    I am now on my 5th cable in 15 months. My phone spends most of its life sat charging on my work desk, so its not unusual usage. Yes Apple will "occasionally" replace the cable FOC, but put simply, the cable is not fit for purpose. Unfortunately I cannot foresee a change to this issue, as its all about the %'s of faults with Apple. It would however be useful if they could at least reduce the price of the cables to reflect the quality of the product.

    Horrendous

    Appalling. I've gone through 3 cords in the space of 6 months. Very flimsy, and breaks down with regular use. I would give this product 0 stars out of 5, if I could.
