    Very poor quality

    I agree with other comments I am now on my 4th cable it is very week at the point where the lead goes into the plug that goes into the actual device not the USB mains plug end. I have never ever had a problem with a charging lead for a nokia samsung or other android device. Apple you need to design something more robust these leads should last the life time if the device which in this day and age 3-5 years!!!

    Horrible Disappointment

    Very disappointed in the cord. Never any issues with the phone. I have had the 5 for a year and gone through 4 cords. Apple better do something before it loses out to superior other brands. I would personally never buy this phone or cord type again.

    Excellent

    My first cord broke about a month ago and I got an off brand one to replace it. The new one was poor quality and broke three days ago so I decided to get the real thing. I ordered a new one that day and was extremely happy with how fast it got here plus the text alerts where very helpful. The first cord broke completely because of me, but the second off brand charger broke by itself. I have absolutely no complaints and highly recommend getting the apple brand to avoid terribly made rip offs.

    Good Cable

    This cable, due to the connector redesign, is much more robust than the older 30-pin version. My cable has worked fine for nearly two years with my iPhone 5, and it feels stronger than the previous version.

    Tired of buying these

    My third cable is now on it's way out. My iPhone 5 is about a year and a half old. They just stop working and I have to twist and maneuver the cable until it picks it up, it's ridiculous for a £15 cable. My 3 year old iPad 2 30 pin cable still works perfectly.

    My cable and the charger rarely move from the plug socket beside my bed so it's not even like it's being jostled about and yanked around.

    I'm a huge Apple fan and I love my iPhone but I am so disappointed with this cable.

    Why I no longer want an iPHONE

    I have always loved the stability of Apple products, so when the opportunity for me to purchase my first product came, I wasn't cheap about it. I bought the iPHONE 5s and to my shock and awe, it did not come with a charger. WHAT THE WHAT?? So I bought one separately at the AT&T store. God help me if I haven't had to buy 8 more lightening cables since then. To make matters worse, whether they are Apple certified or not, they all have stopped working. 4 Apple certified and 4 noncertified cables since January 17th of 2014. I can't take it anymore. I am leaving Apple very soon and switching back to a brand that doesn't require me to add charger cable to my grocery list every month.

    POOR QUALITY Lightning USB cable

    For years I have purchased many apple products to include iPods, iPads, iPhones, mac book and even an iMac. Every single Apple portable device USB power cable falls apart. I have many friends and family co workers and they all agree the cables are very poorly made and in many cases the cable sheathing wears out or bunches up and eventually you end up with a wire with sheathing peeled back and metal wires exposed which will eventually not be usable. I have had to replace at least 15 Apple USB charging cables for various Apple devices over the years at approximately $20 bucks a pipit adds up. ITS RIDICULOUS I purchase the iPhone 5S and already the cable is frayed and unusable. SO I BEG YOU APPLE DEVICE ENGINEERS AND DEVELOPMENT TEAMS FIX THE POOR QUALITY CABLES SUPPLIED WITH YOUR GENIUS DEVICES!!

    Poor quality

    When you see an Apple product you think it would be high quality. The lightning charging cord however is unbelievably horrible. Looks slick but does not last more than a month. On my 9th cord right now.

    Apple should do better

    My charger stopped working after 4-5 months of regular use. I bought a replacement but not from Apple because even if the cheap charger stops working in a few months at least I didn't break the bank. Apple really needs to step up the quality and stop forcing people to shell out even more money for their products.

    Terrible Quality

    These lightning cables do not last long. They stop working after about 3 months, cable end either breaks or just don't work anymore. I have already purchased 4 lightning cables in the last 8 months (1M, 0.5 M, 2M), all have the same issue, poor quality. These cables are costly, $20, and 2M is $30, but it does not mean that they are good. I have old iPhones cables which still good for 3-4 and more years. This Lightning to USB Cable should be recalled and re-designed.

    Very Poor Quality

    I have had to buy several of the chargers which are constantly breaking. We should be allowed free replacements rather than having to pay more, unreasonable amounts of money! I really do hope Apple step up with a stronger, new design for the next chargers.

    Listen to my words please

    I know many people are very dissapointed with the new chargers apple has sold. I have foun that most of the complaints are probably due to the customers straining the chord (basically tugging on it so hard that the a problem with the wires occurs). A week ago I looked up on the internet how to fix this problem. It literally takes 5 minutes and can be done with household products. Just wanted everyone to know!

    I want my cable for free after terrible experience!

    Apple produces great items but this cable is not one of them; it seems to be a cheap Chinese knock-off but it came in the box with my iPhone 5. I expect Apple to step up and start replacing this failing item with new (an better quality) cables for free. We are the customers and we deserve respect and we need to start getting what we pay for.

    Worst most frustrating product ever

    Apple, I love your devices, I do…but this is a disgustingly poor product. I thought it was just me who had gone through multiple cables for some reason but no, looks like this is the same for everyone. My cable has broken several times now, and when you feel a broken one they feel really hot which must be unsafe. I was about to buy ANOTHER one of these stupid things (though it sticks in my craw to reward Apple for bad behaviour) when I read a review that said use a 30 pin to lightning adaptor instead. I had one of those luckily and now i can finally charge my phone again. So thanks v much to whoever gave that piece of advice, you've just saved me £15 x infinity. I do not intend to ever get another iPhone again because of this rubbish disappointing charger. So, for the sake of your remaining customers Apple, if you care about anything except money, sort this out.

    PS it won't even let you rate the product unless you give it 1 star. I'm amazed that it is averaging 2 tbh...
