    I wish I could give it 0 stars

    So I am now on cord number 5 after a year of having an iPhone 5. These cords are by durable at all and within months of getting a new one the next one won't charge my phone. So frustrating.

    Stops working VERY Quick

    I've had 3 Apple brand lightning cables and all three wore out and stopped working in less than a year. Guess what, I still have my iPod cable from 2005 that works like a champ. What's up with this Apple?

    Shoddy quality

    Come on Apple, if you expect me to pay £15 for a cable then at least make it have decent build quality. Why on earth would I buy the genuine product when it breaks in no time at all, I may as well buy the cheapy knock offs as they last just as long and cost pence each.

    So cheaply made!!

    I got my iphone 5 in September 2013. It is now June 2014 and my sixth charger just broke!! I have only had one apple brand charger but it went out very shortly after getting my phone. I am tired of having to spend money on them!! Apple needa to do something to make them better and quit breaking. I only had to replace my iphone 4 charger once in 3 years. Apple, please make it better!

    Worst cable design by Apple

    I went through 6 cables for two I phone 5s we have at home and none of them work. 4 of those are from apple and two from another supplier. It has been 1 1/2 years. Had been loyal to apple for 6 years now. I do not think I will be continuing to do that on the phones atleast. The older phones were far better compared to the newer designs.

    Worst Apple Product

    I have liked all the Apple products and service I've had or used, but this charger is just terrible. I just replaced this cord a week ago and already while I'm charging if I move my phone the charge gets disconnected and reconnected. When I replaced it the Genius Bar guy told me not to bend the cord at either end (kind of a "no duh" tip, if you ask me) and I made sure not to. No better luck. Also, I know of this happening with at least 3 other people's cords. So will Apple recall these and get me some that work, please? Honestly, it works enough, but it is frustrating.

    worst charger ever

    I got my iPhone 5c in December and so far I have been through 3 charger. I Have to spend time playing with the cord for it to work. The original iPhone charger were much better and lasted much longer.

    Listen Up Apple

    I'm so sick of this charging cable that I'm ready to dump your products and get something else. Improve this garbage cable, give loyal customers who've been forced to buy several of these per year, just for the pleasure of owning your small-screened phones, a complimentary cable with the new design. Please tell me that quality and innovation didn't die with Steve Jobs- he would be ashamed of this cable- a product is as strong as it's weakest link- and over 1000 1-star reviews should tell you that the consumer has identified that weak link.

    ���� worst charger ever

    After like 4 months my charger just stopped working, I guess it bends the inner cords easily at the plug in to your phone, I've gone through 2 chargers already. It's annoying that when I do find the right position for my phone to charge I can't touch it.

    Short lived

    Had my iPhone 5s for 8 months and I'm now about to buy my 4th USB cable. This is really annoying because I've been extra careful with my last one and it's still stopped working like all the rest

    These cables wear out fast!

    These cables are very disappointing. They wear out extremely fast from normal use. The cable begins to bunch up near the end that connects to the phone and eventually they don't work at all. I have already gone through three of them and I have only had my phone for one year.

    Bad bad bad bad lightning cables!!!!

    Had to replace 3 cables so far for 2 iPad Airs and iPhone 5 and 5S so far. These cables are expensive and they don't last as long. Terrible cables from Apple. My older 30-pin cable lasted much much longer on my older 4S than these new and supposedly improve lighting cable! Every disappointed in these lighting cables. Bad bad bad quality cables!

    Terrible product

    Wish apple made its usb cables as good as its other products. They dont even replace the cables even if it is in warranty, saying that since it is physically damaged we wont replace it. If you are putting such a high price on your cables it should last for more than a year atleast.

    Apple should replace these for free

    I have bought two lightning cables in addition to the 1 that came with my iPhone 5. Both that were purchased are "certified'. But in less than a year they have all deteriorated (at the iPhone plug side)! I first noticed the rubber/plastic part wearing down and exposing the wires. I thought it was just that 1 but now I've noticed all 3 of them are experiencing the same wear/tear. I am very disappointed Apple! Please make them better. :-(

    Waste of money!

    I've had my ipad 4 since November and iphone 5 since just before Christmas, my ipad cable lasted for 3 months and my iphone cable lasted just 3! Since then I have purchased 4 more which have all broken. I'm sick to death of forking out for these poxy cables when the ipad & iphone were so expensive to begin with. Apple really need to rethink these lightening cables because they are a joke! If I didn't need my iphone to Facetime my other half in the Army when he's overseas (better call quality than skype) I would go back to using my Android, at least their chargers don't fall apart every 5 minutes!

    Criminal

    I have purchased an ipad mini (for personal use) and been given an ipad air (for corporate use) within the past 2 months. Both of these new style charging cables, fresh from the box, have stopped charging my devices. I would have been less upset if I thought it to be potentially a one-off problem, however, this issue appears to be a fundamental flaw with the product rather than an outlier event. It should be criminal for a company to produce premium priced devices which are fitted with non-industry standard peripherals. This would be excusable if the cable actually worked (let alone provided a tangible benefit over-and-above industry standard). Why Apple has delayed recalling the cable is a mystery. It is not enough to be able to walk into a shop an replace every 2 months. This costs me £4.40 in tube fare and takes an hour of my time (priceless).
