    I now need to buy a fifth cable...

    I have an iPad 3, an iPad mini for my son and an iPhone 5s. So far the only cable still working is the iPhone 5s cable.
    I have replaced the 2 iPad cables once each already and 2 months ago the mini cable again stopped working. Earlier today the cable for my iPad 3 stopped working and will no longer charge.
    This is ridiculous that products as expensive as iPad have such shoddy charging cables. I have no choice but to buy another cable as no doubt the iPhone 5 cable with break in the next month.
    Apple, read the reviews and sort this out....

    Cable smokes

    Like other reviews. This cable awful. I was charging my phone in the card with the wall cable and it started to smoke. Never mind the fact that the cable outliner had already split and I was already having to hold the cable a certain way for it to charge my phone.

    WORST CABLE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

    Be prepared to replace your charger every 3 months that's what I've been doing for 2 years and apple is not being very helpful in resolving this issue I am sick and tired of this I now am seriously considering leaving iPhone for good!!!!!!!!

    Very poor design and quality

    This is among the worst moves Apple have made. The design is poor, the quality awful and the price is high. Not what I expect from Apple and personally I think Apple seriously need to address this. If I could give 0 stars I would,
    Apple, please sort this out, listen to your customers, I think you'll find the majority agree it is a poorly designed, overpriced step back from your usual attention to detail. I believe a serious re-think and a move away from this form of connector should be very high on your list for future models, no wasting our time/money trying to fix it and no ignoring what the majority of your customers want. The Lightning Connector is not a success and unlikely ever will be; accept this and do what you do best and solve this problem in your usual way with a new elegant seamless design please.

    Disappointing

    Despite taking great care of this cord after reading about how fragile they are, my cord didn't last more than a few months before the plastic cracked and wires were exposed. Taping up the end gave it a few more weeks but it was unreliably charging, looking like it was charging to begin with but then saying 'Not Charging'. It's really annoying that such a simple yet essential component can't be relied on, and is so expensive to replace. Great money spinner for Apple.

    Actually horrible

    I've gone through 4 this year. They should replace them for free.

    I wish there was an option for Zero Stars.

    This cable is utter garbage, I bought an iPod 5g 6 months ago, and I have gone through 2 of these cables. Plz don't waste your time buying this product. I'm not replacing my brooking one. I think I will just got for a third party charging dock instead of wasting my money again.

    And Dear Apple,
    Fix your cables plz!

    Ridiculous

    I'm so over buying these cords for my iPhone 5. I've had my iPhone for a bit over a year and I've been through 9 and the one I have now doesn't work anymore and I bought it 8 days ago. I don't misuse them, they are kept in great condition and stored correctly after use. It's not just me, I have many friends also. As this is happening to everyone, the demand for them is high and get more expensive. I've spent $180 on cords so far and I'm about to go out and buy my 10th. I'm over it!

    Terrible!!!

    I have been through many of these cords for my iPone 5. I wish I could go back to the 4s. These cords are expensive garbage! Hope they can get something figured out on how to improve the quality of this product.

    Designed By APPLE, or China?

    Apple, how many reviews does it take for you to change your design/supplier? The cable is $20! Would it be that much harder to add a few dollars into the actual quality of the cable after the chip? Even if it was $25, but heavy duty and lasted, it would be worth it. This needs to be fixed before the 6 is released. Fix it!

    Cheap

    Going on my forth cord. The end keeps binding. Apple products are so expensive but made cheap.

    Poor Quality

    I've bought so many cables for my sister and I that I've lost count. We go through them about once every couple of months. They bend after constant use (I charge once or twice a day) and just stop charging. It's starting to feel like it's the most expensive part about owning an iphone. Apple needs to do something about it before it starts losing customers.

    Terrible

    If i could give no stars i would

    The old cable for the 4/4S lasted nearly 2 and a half years. I've had this a matter of a few months and its stopped working. Seems everyone is having the same problem with the cable coming loose at the lightening end.

    An absolute joke to charge hundreds of pounds for 'top of the line' tech, and then not even be able to switch it on without shelling out £15 every few months!

    Sort it out APPLE!

    And the Apple Round Puck Mouse Awad goes to.....

    Oh dear, oh dear. This is the Worst product Apple have forced upon us for years and as I've been an Apple user since the Apple II Europlus (look it up) . The cable is flimsy (I'm on to my third in 7 months ) , unreliable and a rip off. What on earth were they thinking? Garbage. No stars at all.

    Awful!

    I'm on to my second cable now and i'm going elsewhere to find a cheaper one. The quality of this cable is horrendous, within a week of getting a replacement from Apple, my second cable broke. It has happened to many of my friends who are equally as annoyed. SORT THIS OUT!!!

    3 Cables on one year

    Like everyone else here, Apple needs to address the poor quality of its Lightning cable. I mean i have an iPad mini, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C and their 3 lightning cables got screwd. I really can´t keep buying lightning cables for al my devices which I use a lot. Apple DO something!

    Broken cord

    After reading reviews of the lightning cable, I realize that I'm lucky that this lasted me about six months. I had no problem with it up until today when it just stopped working. It looks fine, but won't charge. I read that they can be replaced at the apple store if it's still under warranty, but the nearest apple store to me is four hours away. I'm really not enthused with having to spend 19$ on a new cord, but since I need one ASAP that's my only option. Apple really needs to fix these cables; having to buy a new one every few months is ridiculous!

    2 out of 4 are dead

    Have 4 of these that are less than or barely a year old, and 2 of them are completely dead. 2 came with iphones, 2 I bought separately at $30 a pop. I think 1200+ people on here rating a product 1 star, means you have a problem, Apple.
