    Poor Design - 85% Failure Rate

    I have 6 devices that use this cable and so far 5 of them have failed. Thats a 85% failure rate. I refuse to drop $100 for cables that are doomed to fail.

    Great

    I don't know what all the bad reviews are about. Ive had mine since it came out with the iPhone 5 cane out, and had no problems. It works better, is more compact and even looks better

    If I could put ZERO STARS i would.

    This is literally the worst possible product I have ever had the unfortunate displeasure to own. Not only have I spent well over 100 dollars on replacing this stupid thing but it never seems to work no matter how many I get! If they could make a more reliable piece of NECESSARY equipment it would probably make me reconsider getting a samsung phone but because I am so tired with the endless issues especially coming from chargers- I'm done with apple.

    Absolute GARBAGE

    Can I rate this 0 stars!? This is the 7th cord i've gone through in a year, it even burnt the insides of my new phone so they already replaced it with a new one! Thank god it didn't start a fire! I don't get why apple isn't fixing this SERIOUS problem.... THIS IS STUPID already apple.

    Spending more on cables than the Ipads! Please price them as disposable.

    My family of four has about 9 Apple products that use this cable (phones, ipads, mini ipads,). I have to buy these in bulk because they don't last. One of my daughters also uses this for an external small battery to keep her gadget charged when she is traveling and the wear and tear on the cable from being carried around means we are lucky if it lasts a month. These lightning cables seem more likely to quit working than the older cables did. We also like to keep one cable plugged in at home and use another for when we are traveling. So I end up buying 4 to 6 of these every month or two. And the reviews you find on the cheaper generic versions made by other companies are even worse -- so you go with Apple since it's the best option available. Too bad it's still not any good. Never mind that you have to buy the plug separately. For this price, Apple should be able to come up with a cable that lasts. Are they even reading the reviews? Because they are uniformly negative. Apple -- we love the gadgets. But the accessories are a disaster. If you can't make them last longer, how about pricing them as the disposable item they are.

    Weak Cord

    Lightning USB Cable is just that quick hit of lightning and it's done. The cord breaks at the connection to the phone just with normal use. Apple please make a better product.

    Too much money for such low quality!

    I have had my iphone 5 for less than a year and I now have to buy a 4th cord! For $20 this is ridiculous. Very low quality. Apple makes such good products but their cords/chargers are horrible. Please work on this Apple!

    Multi Lightning Connector Packs and Poor Cord Quality

    Like all other owners of Apple iOS devices I am making the transition from the old Apple Connectors to the new Lightning Connectors. It would make sense to provide multi cord packs to upgrade all the additional chargers we seem to have accumulated over time. It would seem only third party manufacturers are providing such a product. I am always reluctant to purchase non genuine products such as cords as genuine ones seem to last longer. This was certainly true with Nokia before I made the transition to iPhone a few years ago.

    I must admit though the quality of Apple cords is disappointingly poor in comparison. The cord fatigues rapidly where it enters the connector and the wire fractures inside the insulation. Considering the amount of use these cords have, upgraded cords are in order!!!

    Cheap Design

    Horribly designed. Mine broke within 6 months of buying my iPhone 5. Everyone I know who has the iPhone 5 has had their charger break within this time period of regular use. This is ridiculous.

    Third cord already!

    This is the third cord I've ordered for my daughter's iphone 5 in six months. She was convinced that something was wrong with her phone that it was breaking all of the cords, but now that I see the other reviews, I see that we are not alone. With all of this negative feedback, I can't believe that Apple hasn't tackled this and fixed it yet. I think we should all get free cords.

    I had this lightning cable with my iphone 5 and after a short time it just break so easily! I spend more money in buying this cord and i didnt get a satisfactory service or quality for this! I already replace it and unfortunately it doesnt work again..please make some modification in this lightning cable for it to have a good quality and for us to continue our patronage for your products!!

    Poor quality charger

    Like most others reviewing this product, the sheathing on my cord broke open right below the lightning adapter, exposing the wires. It is only used in my car and therefore has not had much wear and tear at all. It happened randomly and all of the sudden, I smelled a strong burning smell in my car and this is a very dangerous issue. Now I am forced to buy another charger for 20.00, knowing that it is probably going to happen again. For the amount of money apple charges for their products, they should be high quality, and more importantly not pose safety hazards.

    Charger cord

    I am very displeased about the charger cords. I've had my phone almost 10 months now and I have got through 2 charger cords. I never had this problem with my iPod charger. Either Apple fixes it, or I'll go back to being an Android user. Because I will not pay another $19.00 for a lousy charger to break in under a few months.

    Charger not accessible

    I just bought this charger before the Ios7 update and a week after that it started to not work. I don't see why this happens, when it's a apple charger. Just a waste of 20 dollars. I'm really thinking about selling my product and switching to a metro or something.

    Not the usual Apple quality

    Disappointed with how easily this cable can become unusable with normal usage. On my third cable in under a year. Please make these cables more durable Apple!

    Broken Already!

    My iphone 5 is months old and already the cord is broken. If you're going to have such poor apparatus at least reduce the price so it doesn't cost everyone $25 every time they have to replace it!
