      Very disappointed with quality of this power adapter

      My wife and I bought two brand new iPhone 6 devices in October 2015. Each came with a 5W USB Power Adapter. Since then we have gone through 3 of these adapter My wife and I bought two brand new iPhone 6 devices in October 2015. Each came with a 5W USB Power Adapter. Since then we have gone through 3 of these adapters. They just don't seem to last more than a couple of weeks. I use a surge protector power bar when I am charging my phones to protect from power spikes. I don't want to use the cheaper clone adapters advertised on the Internet, as I always prefer to use the actual adapter made for the device, but the quality of these Apple plugs is pathetic. I have had a 12 W USB Power Adapter which came with my iPad 3 for over three years now and never had a problem with it. Apple please do something about this. I am getting fed up with having to go to the store to exchange the defective plug for a new one over and over. (Thank God I bought the extended warranty with the phones - although that was to cover the phones themselves and I never expected to have to keep on using it for adapter replacements!!!) Does anyone have any ideas as to why this keeps happening?

      Poor quality for an apple product. I’m on my third charger now. Apple charges a high price for their small accessories like chargers and cords. They need to up Poor quality for an apple product. I’m on my third charger now. Apple charges a high price for their small accessories like chargers and cords. They need to up their quality or give some kind of warranty on their small accessories!!! I started to buy aftermarket accessories and am finding them to be of higher quality.

      Not a happy xamper

      My 2nd charger in just over a year's time has died. You would think a product as expensive as this would be of better quality. But..... My 2nd charger in just over a year's time has died. You would think a product as expensive as this would be of better quality. But.....

      Died after 2.5 years.

      My original iPhone 5 Watt 1 A USB charger died after 2.5 years. As of past experiences with other phone USB chargers, a 5 to 7 years lifespan was expected.

The onl This adapter came with my iPhone SE over two years ago and has not failed me once. I use this block to charge everything. Are use it to charge my iPad. The only problem is it takes a few hours. However, it’ll charge my phone in about one hour. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to buy a cheap and high-quality phone charging adapter.

      good for the long term

      these chargers charge pretty slow, but the build quality is amazing, and it falls and gets thrashed all the time, but it still holds on with barely any scratche these chargers charge pretty slow, but the build quality is amazing, and it falls and gets thrashed all the time, but it still holds on with barely any scratches. This is really costly just for a plug, but if you compare it to others that are half the price, you will happily purchase this one. i bought two of them last week because my old one that lasted 5 years finally died. in summary, don't mind the price, because the quality will make up for it, even though it charges your device pretty slow.
