    Native Union Cable

    Just bought several of these for Christmas gifts. They are all going back. They don't work! When you connect, they either state that it doesn't recognize it or not charging. Why is Apple selling these if they don't work?

    The Apple Genius was wrong.

    He said these were tried for months on end before apple would endorse them. This has not worked once, straight out of the box it did nothing, didn't even register on the battery icon. Nothing, complete waste. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

    I would rather have an ugly cable that works

    Looks great, but stopped working after 6 months.

    0 for 2

    I purchased two of these charging cables, one failed in 3 months, the other died after 6. For the cost of these products you would anticipate far greater quality.

    Broken since first use

    We bought the 10 ft for the iPhone 7 because the braided protective sheath seemed like it would help the charge cord last longer than the white plastic ones that the phone comes with. The connection isn't right and will beep and stop charging and then start charging again and so on, returning today.

    lasted three months

    I thought this was a good bet for quality. It seemed so well made and packaged. But 3 months exactly and it doesn't work at all. It hasn't travelled much and I take pretty good care of my stuff. Especially if I pay a premium price for it. If I can't buy quality accessories from the apple store where should I go? very disappointed

    Trash

    This product didn't even last me a month. It is complete garbage and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. About a week after receiving the cording on the outside had already snagged and was fraying and now the charger will only work when placed a certain way. Exteremy dissatisfied with this product.

    Overall, not worth purchasing.

    I purchased this cable less than a year ago. Initially, I was pleased with the design and nifty leather strap. It seemed to be packaged and branded well.

    However, the leather strap did not last long. The stiffness of the cable has lent itself to fraying, and, the actual functionality of the cable is now nil.

    I would not purchase this cable again. While it is visually appealing, it isn't worth the price increase over an Anker or Apple branded product.

    I gave the cable two stars because it was attractive and worked for a short duration of time.

    Not charging

    I brought this cute cable less than a year ago. Twice it went bad. Only 3 months after I got it, it was not "recognized" by the iPhone. I had no idea why but received a replacement from Native Union. Then now, 8 months later, the cable stopped charging again! It would go on and off. The charging symbol may be on but it is not charging at all! Very frustrating! I thought I bought this as a "upgrade" from the regular Apple charging cable but it turned out to be more problematic than I expected. I read on their website that their users had similar charging issues. I just wrote to their customer service again. Hope they can resolve this... (not sure how since they have already replaced the cable once and it is still not working).

    Connection Issues

    Bought this today and doesn't hold a connection. Will return tomorrow. Buy an Apple cable instead.

    Big Let Down

    This cable really appears nice. The cable clip is nice too. I've used this cable for two weeks and now it has an intermittent connection problem. The internal components and workmanship of this cable are inferior to what you expect from a charge cable.

    Extremely poor quality

    I bought about 20 cables for my company. Some are the XL one and some are the standard 1.2M belt cables. About half of the cables either not able to recognised by iOS devices or the charging status will keep changing when I using the belt cable.

    I doubt why it will selling at the Apple Store. The quality is horrible and my company decided to switch back to the original Apple lightning cable flimsily.DONT BUY any native union product. It totally don't worth to buy it. You will regret of what you have bought anyway.

    Broke my iPhone

    I bought this product from a Apple Store to use in the house so that I could keep my apple cable in the car. After a few weeks I noticed that the apple cable keeped popping out. Took this cable back to the Apple Store where the 'Genious' agreed that it was the cable that had probably caused it but I would have to take it up with the manufacturer (very helpful). Well neadless to say they ignored my email and I have thrown this cable in the bin. I now have to use an elastic band to stop the apple cable from falling out and my iPhone hadn't seen a full charge for 3 month. DONT TOUCH THIS PRODUCT!!!!

    Great Cable

    Solid cable for my iPad Pro. It's nice to have a wrap on it to keep it held together when I store it in my Grid-It. Solid connection ensures my device is connected and charging!

    Rubbish

    This is aesthetically pleasing but as the saying goes "Fur coat and no knickers". It's as unfit for purpose as the Apple lead. Broke within a few months of use.

    Great story,

    Not Durable

    This cable looked durable but it's not. Soon broke. No better than the cheap Apple cables. Expensive too. Ugh.

    Cable good quality, not compatible anymore

    One star for Apple, five star for Native Union. Have had the cable about a year and it doesn't show any signs of wear, but now Apple has decided it's no longer compatible, tried it on two iPads and two iPhones and get the same error.

    Very disappointed , $80 down the drain

    After doing research through the Apple Store and reading ALL of the reviews and top rated status on different cables, I decided on this cable, thinking finally a cable that won't die on me in a few months as I've had the worst luck with my past cables ranging from the actual cable that came with my iPhone 6, eBay purchases, store bought Belkin cables and now I regretfully say Native Union. The reviews I read were highly recommending it, that there is no other cable for me. So I loaded up my cart with 2 of these and thought my charging troubles were over. I received my purchase a week later in July, super excited, it worked brilliantly, but then last month, 3 weeks before the end of August, I kept getting the "this accessory may not be supported" and may not it did. Knowing that phrase all too well, I thought it may have been my actual charger adapter so I changed it, same message came up. So here I am today looking at reviews to purchase another load of cables as I'm getting rather annoyed with this and I see all these bad reviews. How about, before making another iPhone, work on making a charger cable that lasts more than a month. I've had my Nokia cable since I was in high school and it's still working like brand new. I will be looking into a refund and then look at another source for charger cables
