    Very disappointed with quality of this power adapter

    • Written by Nicholas S from Calgary

    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.

    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.....

    Hi Apple,

    I bought a new Apple just one month back. Now my mobile is not charging with the Apple charger thought it is a brand new. In the review I found most of the users are having the same problem.

    Barely lasted a year

    This has to be the worst charger I've had since owning apple products. It has only been about a year and it just stopped working. I am sure I can find a cheaper one that will last me at least as long as this one. Very disappointed in the quality.
