      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.

      Not a happy xamper

      My 2nd charger in just over a year's time has died. You would think a product as expensive as this would be of better quality. But..... My 2nd charger in just over a year's time has died. You would think a product as expensive as this would be of better quality. But.....

      The real deal never fails here.

      I've never had a genuine Apple charger break on me. I still have early/mid-2000s iPod chargers that work like a charm. These new chargers have been no exception I've never had a genuine Apple charger break on me. I still have early/mid-2000s iPod chargers that work like a charm. These new chargers have been no exception. I'm rough on chargers. They get tossed in bags, jammed behind furniture, tugged out of walls sloppily when I'm tired, etc. The one that came with my 6S is in perfect shape, and the one that came with my 5 was in perfect shape when I traded my phone in. Avoid third party chargers like the plague. Not only do they break in just a couple months, a lot of them are fire hazards. These chargers can get pretty warm, but not "I can't even touch it" hot like every third party I've ever tried. It kills me to spend $20 on a plug, but it's a small price to pay to not burn my house down.
