      Disappointing

The cable I had with my iPhone 4, I had for 2 years with no problems at all. So I find it very strange that the lighting cord can stop working so easily. Even the cord for my first generation iPod touch which is 6 years old and it still works. Now I have to go buy another cord and spend more money to keep using my phone. I hope the issue gets fixed soon because I don't want to keep buying new lighting cords every 4 months.

      Unreliable, fragile

      It's unfortunate that this cord is so necessary. I've gone through three different lightning cords in the four months I've had my iPhone 5. All three have ine It's unfortunate that this cord is so necessary. I've gone through three different lightning cords in the four months I've had my iPhone 5. All three have inexplicably stopped working. Each has gotten a short in the cord where it meets the lightning end though I've been careful to leave them straight, treat them gently (especially since the first failed). With my current cord, I have to hold the lightning end of the cord in a certain direction to get it to work. On top of that, when it happens to short out, it interferes with the electric current, disabling linked ports. i.e. when it shorts out in any of my computers' USB ports, the other ports become inactive as well (disabling my external hard drive and USB mouse); when it is plugged in a charger with multiple outputs, the other outputs become inactive as well. After buying several chargers, three iPods, three iPhones, and an iPad, I had amassed ten of the old 30-pin connectors. All ten work just as well as they did when I brought them home; I took it for granted that I never had an issue with any of them.

      Flimsy

      Not up to usual Apple quality standards. Breaks down with normal use.

      Poor insulation

      These charging cables need significantly more durable insulation. I do not use these chargers roughly, yet the insulation frequently breaks as it's poorly made. These charging cables need significantly more durable insulation. I do not use these chargers roughly, yet the insulation frequently breaks as it's poorly made. Apple needs to 1. drastically reduce prices of these units because of the frequency with which I have to buy replacements and/or 2. switch vendors. Whoever manufactures this garbage needs to have their contract with Apple terminated.

      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 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 u 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.
