    Terrible

    Like all the reviews on here I'm sick of buying ridiculously expensive cables that have a v short life span - shame on you Apple

    Worst Ever

    Its inconceivable that the cheaper phone charger last longer than an Apple charger. This issue has dramatically increase my urge to stop using iPhones. I have changed chargers at least twice a year in the last 7years. unacceptable bearing in mind the cost.

    cable and cable insert both unreliable

    I had an Iphone 5 and an ipod 5 and the charging ports on both of these died after 1.5 years. the lighting cables themselves are also very unreliable and break continuously, the old 30 pin chargers are a million times more reliable, Apple should just do something similar to the micro USB as these are very simple and reliable, obviously Apple wants to be the monopoly so if they just make it a slightly different shape but the same principle, i will by a newer phone again, in the mean time I am using my Ipad 3 and have recently bought the iphone 4S which are the last apple products with the 30pin charger.
    they could also get around this by doing wireless charging. something needs to be done as these are really bad PR for Apple and more should be done to handle the publics originations.

    SERIOUS FIRE HAZARD

    MY TWELVE YEAR OLD WOKE UP TO A SMOKE FILLED ROOM,
    HER CHARGER WAS ON FIRE. although no serious damage was done it could have been a lot worse if she hadn't been awake. She woke at 3 am. I cannot say if we would even have had a house right now if she hadn't woke up. it derves no stars but that was not an option.

    The reason to change to android

    This is the only charger from all phone brands that can not last more than few months. Why why why and why? We pay a lot for a stupid phone, which will eventually change to a new version after a year and then face this ****? I was always a fan of Apple, but excuse me, I bought maybe 6 pf these charges already and I need a new one again! Cmon! Apple, please, if you changed those EarPods to wireless, do the same with your charger!!!!

    Lightning Cables - Quality Issues

    Lightning cables are of poor quality in my opinion. The connection into the phone deteriorates really quickly to the point of failure. You will see what looks like oxidation on the connection points, the charger will work intermittently, and then it will stop working altogether, all within a few months. This has happened on every single one I have owned, probably over a dozen individual cables. No water contact, no mistreatment.

    Apple iPhone charger has stopped working again!!!!!!

    Seriously this is my third charger cable this year... you need to sort it out Apple. The cable was working fine last night then I went to charge my phone today and nothing. I am starting to lose patience with Apple and their products and i have been a customer since the first iPod.

    How to burn your house down

    My cable worked great initially, then a connection must have come lose inside the casing and it would only work intermittently, and the phone kept vibrating through the night as the cable worked, then didn't, then did ... but most importantly, I was charging my phone in the bedroom one day and when I went upstairs to get I could smell really bad burning, and the cable was actually burning at the end nearest the device. Had I left it any longer, it could have set fire to something and burnt the house down. So so dangerous .... APPLE, PLEASE, YOU NEED TO DO SOMETHING TO IMPROVE THESE CABLES.

    About time Apple designed a cable that works!

    About to buy my son a 3rd cable! I've always been an Apple fan and we have a lot of their stuff but this is putting me off & thinking of buying something different when I upgrade in February. Fed up of being tied into monopoly - these should last more that a couple of months and Apple should care enough about customers to fix this problem.

    If I knew how to score 0 stars I would.

    What happened to apple quality.

    Both my wife and I have iPhone 5's, the phones are great but these cables are such rubbish. The originals both broke after less than a year and I've been using non-apple brands since. Now I am trying to install a backup onto my iPhone and can't. Reading around its possible to non-apple issue charging cable that is a problem. I am reluctant to buy another apple one though as I know it will probably be broke in a few months. Samsung is looking better all the time.

    lightining charger cable

    I doubt anyone one from apple ever takes these revues seriously, and frankly I would never even bother to write one, but this issue is just too infuriating.
    Like many apple users I own a lot of apple gear, 3 imacs, 3 iphones, 1 ipad, and consequently spend a fair bit with apple, generally happy with the products.

    I suppose this has lead to an arrogant complacency at apple, because the lightning charger is a product which should NEVER been launched. I still have an Iphone 4 which from new the old 30 pin cable still works fine even if battery life has decreased. in the period since I owned my iphone 6s I have replaced the cable no less than 8 times, and now even a brand new one has to be levered in some way to make it work.

    APPLE !!!!! THIS IS A BAD BAD PRODUCT !!!!!!!! I WOULD LEAVE MINUS !) STARS IF THAT WERE AN OPTION

    I've literally spent hundreds on chargers!!!!!!

    Apple need to fix this problem with charging their devices. How come my 2 year old Samsung charger still works, but Apple chargers don't last longer than 4 months I've tried many different brands and bought numbers original Apple cables. But this time is a joke bought my cable and it says it's not compatible with my device smh. Beyond angry not buying no more Apple product until this problem is fixed. Lonely boycott but your not getting my money again!!!!

    Doesn't last long

    Anyone who's had an apple charging cable knows it won't last very long. You pay 600 pounds for a phone that comes with a poorly made charger that won't last a year, (sometimes not even 6 months), no matter how careful you are. A decent charger is really the very least you could do, Apple. Shame on you.

    awful. € 25 for 1/2m !!!!

    Seriously apple, if your customers are to spend between € 300 and €1.2500 on a new Phone, tablet or phablet, the least you can do is supply them with a decent cable.

    The things need to be charged twice a day...so a little flexibility would go a long way! they all fail after 6 months.
