    Same terrible issue with lightning charger

    We have 3 apple products that use these chargers and I am on my 17th cable!
    These are so bad that I have now started keeping spares of theses as you never know when ones going to break or stop working
    I would also like to say to a previous review about taking care of these chargers that no matter how much care you take these are just not built to last
    Tried tested and just short of a T shirt now!

    Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeese Apple do something about this issue

    Worst cable I ever owned.

    The cable has disintegrated just below the collar where cable attaches to lightning connector, from normal light use, I am gentle with such things. Second cable that's done this. Bad design and low quality insulation material. Way over-priced in the first place. C'mon Apple sort it out and give us an Apple quality cable. I'd like a couple of new ones please. New design, new insulation material, reinforced collar, thanks.

    One of the Worst Apple Products Ever

    When I first got this charger with my iPhone 5s, it worked perfectly. Then it suddenly broke after being bent. I then brought more of these and the same thing happened. Other chargers do not work either due to the newest update blocking them.

    Very angry at Apple for this.

    Absolutely horrible

    The end of the lightning tip frays within weeks, even with DIY solutions only last few weeks, this is the worst cavle of all time and now with the IOS7 filter on 3rd party chargers, we are stuck with these POS

    NOT HAPPY No durability whatsoever

    Live had my iPhone 5 5 months and I am already on my second lightning cable, with has now also fallen prey to the same fate as those before it. The quality on these things is terribly the wires underneath the connection between the lightning cable and the male connecter fail leaning you unable to charge your phone. Something seriously needs to be done. Can someone start a petition or somethig. I don't usually go out of my way to write reviews but I did to complain about this product.

    NOT HAPPY

    Charger ends gets broken easily

    The charger cable works perfectly fine, whether you use it on your computer or connected to a wall plug. Unfortunately, once the charger gets a crimple at the ends, particularly the one that's connected to your phone, make sure to have a replacement soon because that thing won't work in a couple of days! :( I feel like I spend too much money for something that won't last that long. The cable isn't designed well for something that takes a beating everyday. Apple should make a better cable (idk, thicker cables?) or just redesign the whole thing.

    Very poor product

    Cable is of a really bad quality. Have gone through four of them in less than a year. Wires become separated from the adapter. Never had any issues with the old 30pin connector.

    Worst charger in the world

    The charger is no good and they only last a couple of weeks. I've been through 4 chargers and they all end up breaking in the same spot. So something needs to be done and get this problem fixed fast!!

    Not worth the price

    Apple chargers are all ridiculously overpriced for such poor quality. These chargers develop holes after a few months and are too short.

    How many 1-star reviews needed before Apple fixes this?

    If I could give it less than one star, I would. I bought my iPhone 5s ONE MONTH ago. I started receiving an "unsupported" message from my 2012 Honda today - it stopped playing music, both iTunes and Pandora, and would not charge. Nothing fixed it - restarting, resetting, etc. both car and phone. After unplugging my phone a few times, just as gently as I always do, it RIPPED in half where it plugs into the phone. I called support and was told that I was receiving the message because there was something wrong with my CAR, not the cord that had broken in half. I had the same USB cord for my 4s for TWO years and never had a problem, whether in my cars or in my house. Seriously, when is this issue going to be fixed? Ridiculous.

    Terrible Cable

    As many other review has stated; these cables are absolutely terrible. I've purchased both official Apple cables and aftermarket cables. The aftermarket cables are holding up far better than the Apple cables but they still aren't great. The real irony is that most electronics die before the charging apparatus does and I'm on my 8th cable in little over a year. Terrible technology Apple. If someone was fired over Apple maps someone definitely should be fired over this cable. Fix it Apple.

    Bad Cable

    Today is the 31st and I have officially gone through 3 in this month alone contemplating leaving my Iphone as this is never a problem with other phones. And im convinced that the only people leaving good reviews on this cable work for apple.

    Lightning cables are absolutely horrible

    I have had my iphone 5 for almost a year now and I am on my 8th charging cable for it. This is not cheap at all because each cable costs around $20. If you aren't looking to spend money do not buy an iphone, especially one in the 5th generation. Apple has done absolutely nothing to fix their product.

    Really Apple?

    Like other reviewers have stated this cable is absolutely terrible!!! I've never had an issue in the past with the old cables. So of course Apple comes out with a new cable with a built in chip. Now we're all stuck being forced to spend a ridiculous amount of money on a cable which will break in a couple of months. Bravo Apple, Bravo!! Apple needs to just swap out these awful cables for free until they remake them all together.

    Breaks after a few months

    Great when it works.

    But what is up with the quality? After a few months they wrinkle up right before the lightning end where it connects to the phone, and I have to bend the wire around for a few minutes until I get the perfect angle for it to charge. A few days later, it completely DIED. I disconnected the wire to see what was up and noticed smoke coming out of it?

    Dear Apple, if you're going to make a chip that forces us to only buy your cables, MAKE THEM RIGHT.

    Terrible.

    The quality of this cable is disgusting. Even more so given the price. It doesn't matter how much care is taken with it, it will stop working. I am curious as to where i stand with taking them back to the apple store instead of having to keep replacing them.

    Apple should be ashamed

    I bought my iphone 4 it will be 2 years in May got Ipad for Christmas about 1-2 yrs ago.. We have gone through at least 10 charging cables within the last 2-3 months.. Ridicules .. As expensive as these items are you would think Apple would make a cable that don't break week after week.. I guess their way of making more money.. I have never had as much problems with cable, phones etc than i have had with Apple products.. Next time around i don't see myself buying any more apple products.. I am really disappointed in there products considering their price and all the whoop tee doo about Apple.. I would not even give a star for any of these products..Sorry Apple but... You really aren't worth it.

    Come on apple... Really?

    Since I've bought my iphone 5 in June 2013, I've went through over 10 chargers. When I had my iphone 4, I used the charger that came with the phone, the 30 pin connector, and it lasted me over a year. I honestly have to say that if you do not announce something about you guys fixing the chargers at your next keynote, I will be quitting apple products and buying a Samsung Galaxy for my next phone. Thanks apple for making me waste more than 200 dollars on chargers.

    Poor quality cord doesn't work any more

    I bought my iphone only 3 months ago and now, BOTH of my lightning chargers are broken. I would prefer to give no stars but that's not an option. Apple, I expect a refund of 30 lightning chargers for the frustration caused here. And next time, make a better charger
