      Very disappointed with quality of this power adapter

      My wife and I bought two brand new iPhone 6 devices in October 2015. Each came with a 5W USB Power Adapter. Since then we have gone through 3 of these adapter My wife and I bought two brand new iPhone 6 devices in October 2015. Each came with a 5W USB Power Adapter. Since then we have gone through 3 of these adapters. They just don't seem to last more than a couple of weeks. I use a surge protector power bar when I am charging my phones to protect from power spikes. I don't want to use the cheaper clone adapters advertised on the Internet, as I always prefer to use the actual adapter made for the device, but the quality of these Apple plugs is pathetic. I have had a 12 W USB Power Adapter which came with my iPad 3 for over three years now and never had a problem with it. Apple please do something about this. I am getting fed up with having to go to the store to exchange the defective plug for a new one over and over. (Thank God I bought the extended warranty with the phones - although that was to cover the phones themselves and I never expected to have to keep on using it for adapter replacements!!!) Does anyone have any ideas as to why this keeps happening?

      Poor quality for an apple product. I’m on my third charger now. Apple charges a high price for their small accessories like chargers and cords. They need to up Poor quality for an apple product. I’m on my third charger now. Apple charges a high price for their small accessories like chargers and cords. They need to up their quality or give some kind of warranty on their small accessories!!! I started to buy aftermarket accessories and am finding them to be of higher quality.

      All 11 still working

      Have 11 little blocks of these in the house ... have been using them since switchover to Apple roughly 6 years ago... have not had a single failure to date. Al Have 11 little blocks of these in the house ... have been using them since switchover to Apple roughly 6 years ago... have not had a single failure to date. Also... it's worth mentioning I've not had a single reliability-related failure on any apple product I've purchased from apple... this includes 3 desktops, 3 laptops, 3 iPads, 9 iPhones... and counting because we'll be buying the new iPhones this September. Apple gear has worked for our family without effort and without failure. Just works. Probably jinxed us... but the record to-date is flawless.

      Pays to get the real thing

      Never had a failure in all the ones I own, and I have a bunch. Have tried the "genuine OEM" ones you can get online. Most of them don't work. If they do, they Never had a failure in all the ones I own, and I have a bunch. Have tried the "genuine OEM" ones you can get online. Most of them don't work. If they do, they don't work with my Apple products as well as the authentic Apple ones do. Word of advice: just buy the real thing from the real company and your Apple gear will stay working like it should. Yes, they are expensive. This is one thing not to skimp on.

      This is what it is.

      It is a power adapter, not a charging unit. What else do you expect? Still, this smooth, cubish white thing works seamlessly well with other Apple devices and It is a power adapter, not a charging unit. What else do you expect? Still, this smooth, cubish white thing works seamlessly well with other Apple devices and do not generate much heat.
