    Lightning plug broke after a few months

    I purchased this cable to charge my iphone X faster than the standard USB > lightning cables. I usually keep the cable and power brick plugged into my kitchen island outlet and am very careful with my electronics/accessories. Recently I plugged my phone in and noticed it wasn't charging. I tried several outlets before I realized the lightning "tab" (for lack of a better term) is wobbly in the cable housing. Something is definitely broken and no amount of cable-fu has fixed it. I'm going to need a new one, but they're so expensive. This shouldn't happen after only 4-5 months of light use. This is the first time I've had problems with an Apple cable of any type, and needless to say I'm rather disappointed.

    I expected a better quality cable from Apple

    Apple's major branding point is "you pay for quality." They did not follow through on their brand promise with this product. I've had to replace the cable twice in 1 year. It's definitely time for Apple to reinvent the charging and connection process.

    Apple needs new rubber

    Apple lightning cords and power cords all fray at the end. Sometimes in a few months or at least in a few years. The rubber cracks and peels back exposing the bare wire. I'm really surprised that Apple has allowed this problem to go on for so long. What's with the lack of motivation to address this?

    Lightning end is bad after 1 month

    Like title says, after a mont mh the lightning end got a weird kink and now the cable has to be at certain angles for the cable to work.

    Not worth the price

    Typical of Apple, they always think about their pockets only and don't care about costumers. I literally bought an iPhone 8 plus 256 GB and they don't ever bother to add fast charging cable in it!! The old 5 watt wall brick and the same cable that doesn't support fast charge! So I had to buy them separately and the cable started to peal off after 4 months! You guys make your cables so cheap in material and their price doesn't justify the quality!

    The WORST

    Hi, Not sure what Apple's problem is with their cables, but they are the WORST! They never last, always get a "this device is not supported" message, a green color around the tip of the charger and they are way too short. Apple, stop being cheap and fix these problems! We pay enough money for the iPhone and we deserve accessories that work and last. After all, we are paying for them.

    Works greak a few months and fails

    Works great a few months and fails at the cable to lightning connector interface. The have been having this same issue for years with all Apple lightning cables. They need to beef up thier cables with strain relief at the connectors. There are better generic alternatives for usb to lightning cables that I buy. Not sure about usc-c to lightning (these are still kinda new).

    Nice cable.

    This is a nice cable, no doubt. There are only 2 issues for me. One is that it's kind of pricey for a 2 meter cable. I see a lot of people saying they can get 3 for the same price from others, but I would still trust Apple and get their product for safety. The second kind of issue is the quality. To be honest, I've seen people use their lightning cables. They just put the end on a hard surface, while browsing on their phone, which obviously is going to rip the rubber. Be realistic, if you just put your phone to charge on the desk, or maybe use in your hand without rotating and playing with the rubber around the end, nothing's going to happen realistically. Still, they have to work on their cables to make it more resistant.

    Worth the money

    Must have if you own an iPhone X and also a new MacBook which most importantly comes with the usb C wall power adapter. If not probably not worth the money buying the adapter too. Enables fast charging and it really is noticeable how much faster it is. Its brilliant.

    Love the lighting charger.

    It’s the best to me, haven’t given up on me since day one. I’d recommend it to anyone that’s looking for a faster charge. I’m constantly busy and it’s doing it’s work to keep my phone charged fast at all times!5stars for sure

    Fast Charging iPhone X

    I recently bought this cable along with the Apple 29W charging adapter, the combination of which I'm using to charge my iPhone X. My experience is that this combo will charge the iPhone X about 30% in 30 minutes (going from 50% to 80%). The claim is that this combo will charge 50% in 30 minutes, but those tests were testing going from 0% to 50%. I know from experience that iPhones charge more quickly when the battery is almost dead, so that may be accurate.

    Overall I'm happy with the (albeit expensive) purchase. I decided to get one fast charger for my home and have a slew of regular chargers floating around. Occasionally I need to charge quickly between coming home and leaving again, so this will work well for that purpose.

    Cable broke malfunctioned within a month - Apple replaced

    Without a visible damage, cable malfunctioned - poorly designed product. I keep my receipt safe since I am afraid it might malfunction again within 1 year warranty period.

    Pricey

    If you thought your wallet could finally get a breather after forking out £919 for your new iPad, you were wrong. The supplied charger is abysmally slow with it taking up to 7 hours to charge while the iPad is in light use. You have to spend another £85 to get this cable along with the USB Type C charger - albeit, it does the job well. Now to spend nearly £300 more on the first party keyboard case and Pencil :0

    Does the job. Premium price.

    Useful if connecting from MacBook (USB-C) to iPhone or iPad. Bought predominantly for fast-charge of iPhone 8/X using 29W MacBook adapter. Yes it's expensive & as with all Apple cables, if you look after them, they last. You might find genuine ones sold from Apple, fulfilled by Amazon from the Amazon website. 4/5 purely because of price.

    Terrible quality

    This product deserves less than 1 star. I have had TWO of these chargers in less than a year. I take very good care of all of my cables as well. I have never had a problem with any other cables except this. My cable completely stopped charging my laptop - leaving me (a college student) with a dead computer and exams to complete online.

    Thank you for nothing Apple. Not worth the money they ask for.

    Great cable for fast charging

    I absolutely LOVE this cable!

    Definitely changes your usage experience when you can fast charge your iPad Pro, as opposed to charging it with the slow charger that is included with it.

    I can now charge my 10.5" iPad Pro faster than I can drain it. Hallelujah! :D

    No issues after almost a year

    A lot of people are complaining about the quality of this cable. I bought mine some time in the fall of last year, and I've kept it curled up in my backpack, often in unsafe ways. I've run over it with my chair numerous times, and it still works just fine. I've even unplugged it by tugging halfway down the cord because I was too lazy to go unplug it properly. I've basically done everything they say not to do to keep cables in good condition, and this thing has held up despite having that same low quality feel all of Apple's stock cables have. I don't know what horrible things people have done to their cables to have them not last long enough, but 1 year of the bad treatment I've given my cable is enough that I wouldn't be mad if it broke soon (though it shows no sign of breaking). Of course now that I've said this, I'm sure it will break any day now just to spite me :P.

    Fast Charging, Long Lasting (with a little care)

    I have had the 2m cable since the week it hit the shelves, I carry it in my bag every single day to work, and I use it to charge my devices no less than twice per week. I have never had a single problem with this cable or the USB-C 29W Power Adapter, and I cannot recommend this combination highly enough for anyone with an iPad Pro - the whole experience changes when you can charge it faster than you can drain it.

    I have tried a lot of third party cables and they frequently form internal faults that prevent the device from holding a constant connection. Since I have had cables in the past crack and fray, I NEVER pack this cable while it is still connected to the 29W Adapter, and this simple disassembly seems to be enough to prevent problems.

    This cable is so valuable to anyone with a more powerful device, and with a little care will last a long time. Absolutely worth $29!

    Garbage quality cable. Dead in less than 60 days.

    In November 2016 I bought a 29W USB-C charger and a 2m USB-C to lightning cable to fast charge my 12.9" iPad Pro. It worked fine for around a month, then started giving trouble now and then and now, less than two months later, is completely dead and won't charge any device I plug it in to (I've tried two iPhones and two iPad Pros). Apple charges a ridiculous price for these "genuine accessories" and the quality control is absolutely appalling. Disappointed beyond belief.
