      Seriously APPLE?! Fix the problem!

      As with the majority of the reviews this product is far subpar. I enjoy Apple products as much as the. Ext person but these light ing cord are rediculous. I hav As with the majority of the reviews this product is far subpar. I enjoy Apple products as much as the. Ext person but these light ing cord are rediculous. I have had my iPhone 5 since it came out and it works fine dispite use and abuse plus an otterbox... So i guess thanks Otterbox! But these cords are useless. Every one from apple has broken within months and all third-party chargers that stay together end up quiting and i get an "accessory not supported" message after using the stupid thing for weeks every single day with no issues. All i can figure is ur updates mess up the connection somehow. I would glad to pay more for a charger if it worked longer than a few months, even though I think $20 is too much for a flippin charger... I want quality over quantity and will pay for it if I have to.

      Charge cables are never an issue with any of my other audio or video equipment. NEVER.

I'm a pro in video production so at any given moment I have a dozen or two pieces of equipment to keep powered and charged. Charge cables are ALWAYS an issue with any Apple product be it laptop, phone or tablet. Poor design, poor quality control, and obviously engineered to fail often. Seems desperate to me that the second most valuable company in the world must supply poor quality and then REQUIRE their licensed inferior design to carry 5v at 2amps through 2 conductors frequently unsuccessfully. Shame.

      Terrible Product

The rubber that protects the cord is tearing, and revealing the wire within the cable. Also, the USB Cable will not charge my phone so I have to position it correctly intruder to charge my phone. Im tired of buying new cables every month and I suggest that Apple should make there cables out of a better material so it does not tear.

      Tear up easy

      They easily tear up. Don’t last long. I had my iPhone for a year and went through at least 6 chargers.

      Really?!?

      I brought 2 cables from Apple within months they are damaged. How though? Because my wire is all in contact and my phone just doesn’t want to charge. Popping up I brought 2 cables from Apple within months they are damaged. How though? Because my wire is all in contact and my phone just doesn’t want to charge. Popping up with “this item may not be accessible.” And I know full well 100% it’s an apple charger and not some cheap scam. I brought it from an APPLE STORE. What is wrong with your chargers? Please fix them. The don’t last long so you might as well buy one from Poundland or something that lasts about the same but so much cheaper. Not worth your money.

      Worst in Accessories

      I have been a very avid user of Apple products, but the original accessories never last long. Cheap Knock Offs from China last longer then these original charge I have been a very avid user of Apple products, but the original accessories never last long. Cheap Knock Offs from China last longer then these original chargers. I just use 1 cable in 1 location only, i.e I have separate cables for my car, office and home uses, and take very good care for my accessories, still I am forced to keep changing my charging cables every few months. I hope Apple considers these problems seriously and develop a charger cable which is more reliant and longer lasting.
