    Revolting quality, severely overpriced

    This is by far the worst thing Apple has made and I thought the 30 pins were bad.. Not only do they unexpectedly stop working they also seem to completely fail if a tiny bit of foreign material eg, dust, dirt ect gets on one of the copper strips. $25 is ridiculous for a 50cm cable which in < 3 months will be in the bin like the other two are. C'mon Apple if you're not going to make a quality necessity for your products like iPhones, iPods and iPads at least make them affordable to replace and perhaps cut the profit margins down a few hundred percent.

    junk

    Original cable and the one bought here failed.
    Apple honors their warranty, but returning them at the Apple store is a painfully time consuming process which just adds poor customer support to horrible quality.
    I suggest buying Lightning cables from a quality third party manufacturer, or at the very least buying them from a store at which you can return them without an appointment or an hour wait.
    If Apple is going to use a non-standard connector they could at least produce quality overpriced cables.

    I'd give it 0 stars if I could

    This product is so poorly manufactured, not to mention the price of it. I've now gone through 2 cables and I can't be bothered to get another one because it's rubbish.

    4 broke since christmas

    Well, we both got iphone 5's for christmas, and we'd priviosly had iphone 4's for 2 years. I still to this very day, have my 30 pin iphone. 4, origional cable fully working from over 2 years ago. So why do the lightningg conncter break so easily? They loose connection for abit and then just die, and now you expect yet another £15 out of my purse? When working the cable is very fast to charge and i like the both way charging, but seriosly, letting the phone down, bad reviews to all my friends and family! I advise to get the adapter from. 30 pin to 8 pin using the old cable, apple stil steals a further £25 from us, but at least they won't break! Fix it apple!

    Flimsy

    Like everyone else, I have drawers full of 32-pin chargers. The lightning charger, however, doesn't last. The lightning end has become limp and flaccid (within months) and charging my iPhone is a frustrating challenge. The iPhone 5 is great - but it needs power to work. Sort it out, Apple!

    doesn't charge anymore..

    i've had my ipad mini for up to 3 months now and the cable cord doesn't work anymore, i'm not paying £15 if it's going to break again. I see people have the same problem as me, that i have to move the cord to a certain spot so that my ipad will charge. Apple needs to sort out this problem and they should replace the broken ones to brand new ones to the costumers.

    Very cheap quality.

    I bought my iPhone 5 in November last year, and tomorrow I have to go replace my cable for the 3rd time. When will Apple design one of a better quality, that doesn't stop working after a few weeks? I refuse to spend any more money on these cables and will be sending a complaint.

    Lightning Fast Faults!

    I still have at least 8 '30 pin' cables for iPods, iPhones & iPads, which have all lasted all this time, with not one fault.
    Since my partner and I bought each other the iPhone 5 in January, we've had 3 faulty 'Lightning' cables each. Yes, Apple will replace them under the warranty, providing you return the faulty one! If not, they will relieve your credit card of £15.00 and leave you with yet another cable which will break within a month.
    This is clearly a very poor design and one which needs to be addressed by Apple immediately.
    Come on guys. Your quality control is going down the pan here!
