    Make them thicker!

    • Written by from Penarth

    Apple is making the wires of their chargers thinner and thinner, Personally I don't care how thick they are so they don't break as often as they do!

    Lightning Cable Failures

    • Written by from Toton

    Why on earth do all these reviewers keep complaining that the cable fails after a short period and now they have bought 3 or 4. They come with a one year warranty get them replaced for free. What is wrong with you people?

    Anyway about to buy one for my grand daughter who is fed up with buying cheaper fakes that fail.

    Have bough these before and they seem to work ok although they get a bit raggedy after a couple of years.

    So far so good

    • Written by from Burton-on-Trent

    My wife has 2 iThings using the lightning to USB leads for data/charging. So far no problems after 1-2 years. For the last 3 months her phone is charged using the Apple charging base which may be helping, but the iPad is always charged (not especially protected in the kitchen) using the bare lead. Note that the plug is pulled out at the plug, not by pulling on the lead.

    Cables dont last long

    • Written by from Coventry

    Excellent cables to charge your iPhone properly and fasting than the fake ones however after a few months they tend to start coming apart by the connection into the phone. But from talking to others apple chargers have always had this down side.

    Surprised it lasted 7 months from the reviews!

    • Written by from Coventry

    My original charger lasted 7 months which I very shocked about as my friends with the 5 or 5s chargers haven't even lasted that long! Was perfectly fine until a couple of weeks ago I noticed it wouldn't charge in certain angles then finally it completely stopped!! There a a crease of the wire at the top where it plugs into the phone but Can't tell any damage so obviously it is something inside the wire case! Apple please sort your chargers out and make them as good as the older iphone 4 and lower you've had enough complaints to sort this!! Going to try get a replacement on warranty as this is no fault of mine !! 3 stars becus it lasted as long as it did!

    Good and Bad

    • Written by from East Grinstead

    This charger works well but I'm on my second one since i bought my iPod. The charger charges my iPod a lot quicker than my old iPod used to charge but the downfall of this product is that it is easily damaged and no matter what you hear from good reviews about there being too much dust in the charger port it is not the case and I clean this everyday as I'm OCD and my charger doesn't work well anymore and need to buy a third one which is ridiculous.

    Good and bad

    Somehow, I think some have been designed correctly and some haven't. What I mean is when I got the fist four (one was bought from the apple store) , they all broke until I got the fifth one My god it seemed like multiple time stronger and it's lasting like five times longer than the other. This one was bought just before mid 2013 until now and it might look damaged (like most bought cables) but my divides
    charge fine. These all were lightning connecters and so thats how I think some are designed correctly and others incorrectly, but I think most are incorrect because most of my cables broke but now I know some people are having the same problem as me, so I think it could be better by making a thicker wire.

    yes maybe the cable is a bit weak but only if you don't take care of it. my solution to this is to put a spring from a pen on the end of a cable to stop it from kinking. THEN IT WONT BEND and i promise you your chargers will last for longer

    Ok but.........

    • Written by from CARDIFF

    Surprised at most comments as had my iPad since xmas and have charged it most days and cable works perfectly. But...... Agree that the cable is much too short. Would like Apple to explain why they could not make it at least 1 1/2 metres or introduce a 2 metre version. Is it because it might affect the charging capabilities.

    Alright but to short!

    • Written by from Corby

    Its alright but when i want to use my iPad the charger always falls out. It chargers perfectly fine and I've had it for over 5 months and no problems. It would be fine if it was longer maybe 2m or 3m.

    Too short!

    • Written by from Ashton-Under-Lyne

    The cable has worked fine for me, with both my iPhone 5 and my iPad mini. However the major drawback is it is far too short!! Come on apple it's time you made a range of sizes so you can talk on the iPhone when it's charging, and so that you can charge an iPad in the car while kids watch films in the back.
