    No issues - always works.

    I've been using these cables for years and years and I have never, never needed to buy any other apart from the one included in the package. Always good!

    Super fast delivery

    Ordered a new charger/cable yesterday afternoon and it arrived before 12pm today! I left my old charger in hospital recently- that one was over 2 years old and I've never had an issue with it. My partners iPad charger is now 4 years old and again no issues...

    If you don't look after you're stuff it will break it's simple, for anyone that dosnt know what that means it means pulling the cable out of your apple device with the plastic casing not the wire. I think it's perfect ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Read so many bad reviews but I purchased one about a year ago now. I'm a typical teenager, I sit playing on my phone while it charges, I charge my phone a lot. Charger lasted me a year. Still works fine now however I'm buying a new one because I caught it on a sharp corner and slit the wire and don't want to risk it. Highly recommend though!

    Never had a problem

    I've never had a problem with lightning cables/chargers. I only purchased a new one to work with the Ford Sync in my car. As long as you pull it out with the plug and not the cable then they don't break. I'm still using my original cable from 3 years ago.

    It is your iPhone connector port, not the cable.

    I hate to admit it because I struggled with two cables for months until I checked out the forums. Your iPhone connector port is probably stuffed with lint which may be the reason the cables don't appear to be working.

    Cleaned mine out with the end of a paper clip and wow. Straight into charge mode

    Happy days! Big thanks to the guys on the apple forums who solved this problem for me.

    Only breaks if YOU break it.

    I have had a lot of IPhones in my time, I have bought many of these cables so that I have one for many locations, the Car, Home office, Bedroom, Work Office, travel bag (travel abroad weekly) none have EVER broken - why, because I don't break them like everyone else, if you pull a cable out without holding the end it will break so don't do it.

    Pull the cable out with a bit of care instead of tugging it so hard from the middle and it will last.

    No problems here

    Had my iPhone 5s for nearly two years now, and I'm only now having to replace my lead.
    Although I find £15 a hefty price to pay it lasts. Don't understand all the 1 star ratings, learn to care for your phones and it's accessories.
    I've had so many iPhones and never had any issues! I'd be lost without my iPhone!

    Good cables - I never experienced any problems with these cables.

    I've owned quite a lot of apple devices ranging from the iPhone's, to the iPad's, Mac's etc and I never had a problem with my lightning cables supplied by Apple. Never once did they break. I've noticed tons of people writing bad reviews, however I can only come to a conclusion that people are miss-treating and not taking care of the cable (i.e un-plugging the cable wrongly, stretching the cable, etc.)

    Never had a problem...

    I've seen a lot of negative reviews, which has motivated me to comment. I've had an iPhone 6 since release and a iPad Air. I've got 5 lightning to USB cables, all of which are still working perfectly. I've had an iPhone since the first generation and an iPad 1. I never had any problem with the old connector either and have absolutely no complaints.

    Works just fine

    The vast majority of negative reviews left here have been written by morons who don't know how to take reasonable care of things. Unplug your cable properly (grab the hard plastic part, not the flexible part) and pull gently. Easy. Stop blaming Apple because you can't take responsibility for yourself and your belongings. I've had countless cables with countless Apple products over the last 15 years and not one has failed.

    Cables will last a long time - If you look after them properly

    I have had my iPhone 5S for nearly two years now, and I've only ever had one cable for it, which is the one that came with it, I've charged my phone with it every night and it's been fine, it's traveled with me to Spain, two trips to Greece, Germany, and not to mention using it in long car journeys, it's been flawless, I've never had problems with charging or durability, and it's not as if the newer cables are made to a lower standard than the older ones, because I've had an iPad Air 2 for nearly 7 months and that has also been perfect. My Dad has had his 5S for as long as I have and he hasn't had problems either, my sister has had an iPhone 5C for 4 months with no problems too, I've had more issues with 30-Pin cables breaking than Lightning, not a single lightning cable I've had has broken in the two years that I have been using them.

    The key to making sure they last is by looking after them - pulling the cable out of the device using the plastic surround for the connector is always the way I have been taking them out, I never pull them out by tugging on the cable or by tugging on my iPhone or iPad to remove it. I hope this helps people to look after their cables better.

    They're fine as long as you use them properly.

    This works fine if you do not consistently bend the cable. If you are a person that uses your phone while it is charging, which may then cause the cable to bend at the hinge..you should expect it to break sooner rather than later. The same principle applies to earphones and other connections too. This lighting cable is thin. If you want one you can bend and use at awkward angles, one would suggest to invest in a heavy duty cable of some kind. Also, apple will replace the cable for you if it fails and give you tips on how to make the cable last longer.

    Just perfect!

    I have bought i phone 5s last year in March and this charger simply works despite me drugging it around at work,constantly moving it about my premises and it simply works. The same apply's for my daughters treatment. She is rather careless when comes to charges,but again it is miraculously not broken yet. I have to get more as they are simply "missing" in our house :-D. I am very happy with it.

    Works Fine

    Works fine for me

    I had a chinchilla related incident with my original cable and so purchased a new apple one. Works fine. Plug it in, my devices charge. Admittedly I have a charger at home and a charger at work and so the cable doesn't go on any adventures so maybe that is why the cable wires don't fray or whatever like the other people's. I would rather get a verified apple charger then a impostor one just in case something goes wrong. £15 is a lot cheaper than £499.

    I must be doing something different with my cable because it works perfectly and I have had no problems with it - and that's with daily use for 2 years! Although £15 is a little steep for a mere cable, it does the job perfectly and I couldn't ask for more!

    They last if treated properly

    My mini iPad cable has lasted nearly 2 years and is still working, my daughter and son in laws cables are still working in their iPhone 5s. If treated properly and disconnected by pulling the connector and not the cable there is no reason why they shouldn't give good service. Much better than micro USB in my opinion.

    Great cable miles ahead of its time

    Mine is rock solid , am glad so many people have issues with there's I have spent years of my life fixing devices because people pull on wires while things are charging, it's about time the wire broke instead of the charging socket, and to everyone with broken wires treat your stuff with the respect it deserves what are you 5 .

    2 cables, 6 months and still going strong!

    I've had my 5s for about 6 months now and can honestly say I've found no problem with the cable! It cahrges well, no bends have appeared in the wire. The only reason I bought a second one was for a spare as I'm often misplacing my charger! And after 3 months with using the spare aswell as the orginial I can honestly I have not had a single problem with either, perhaps over use, or placing them to close to heat sources i.e. a radiator or direct sunlight, is what's causing them to break for other people? But I'm completely satisfied with this product!
