    The real deal never fails here.

    I've never had a genuine Apple charger break on me. I still have early/mid-2000s iPod chargers that work like a charm. These new chargers have been no exception.
    I'm rough on chargers. They get tossed in bags, jammed behind furniture, tugged out of walls sloppily when I'm tired, etc. The one that came with my 6S is in perfect shape, and the one that came with my 5 was in perfect shape when I traded my phone in.

    Avoid third party chargers like the plague. Not only do they break in just a couple months, a lot of them are fire hazards. These chargers can get pretty warm, but not "I can't even touch it" hot like every third party I've ever tried.
    It kills me to spend $20 on a plug, but it's a small price to pay to not burn my house down.

    Pays to get the real thing

    Never had a failure in all the ones I own, and I have a bunch.
    Have tried the "genuine OEM" ones you can get online. Most of them don't work. If they do, they don't work with my Apple products as well as the authentic Apple ones do.
    Word of advice: just buy the real thing from the real company and your Apple gear will stay working like it should. Yes, they are expensive. This is one thing not to skimp on.

    Well built

    I've owned about four of these and they are all still working.

    This is what it is.

    It is a power adapter, not a charging unit. What else do you expect?
    Still, this smooth, cubish white thing works seamlessly well with other Apple devices and do not generate much heat.

    Product works as described.

    Power Adapter works as described. I've had one of these with every iPhone I've purchased over the years, every model since the 3GS, except the 6S which I skipped, plus a few extra, and I've never had one break. I've kept them in laptop bags, purses, and backpacks. Never had one break or bend, never had one overheat or stop working. These things are hefty. My only complaint is they are small enough that I've managed to loose a few over the years, but at the same time the size is advantageous, perfect to throw in a pants pocket or even a clutch purse when theres not a lot of room. Overall, I couldn't ask for a better USB to wall power adapter.

    All 11 still working

    Have 11 little blocks of these in the house ... have been using them since switchover to Apple roughly 6 years ago... have not had a single failure to date. Also... it's worth mentioning I've not had a single reliability-related failure on any apple product I've purchased from apple... this includes 3 desktops, 3 laptops, 3 iPads, 9 iPhones... and counting because we'll be buying the new iPhones this September. Apple gear has worked for our family without effort and without failure. Just works. Probably jinxed us... but the record to-date is flawless.

    Works until it falls apart

    For the money spent I expected a better made item. I try and avoid knock offs because I worry about damaging my iPhone. This item is made with the same quality as the $5 ones sold elsewhere. Very disappointed.

    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 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?

    Apple 5W USB Power Adapter

    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.....
