    Lasts very long but breaks after 4 years

    • Written by Kateland V from Alhambra

    These Apple Lightning cables works like a charm, and I had one for 4 years already. These Lightning cables last quite a long time, but after 4 years of use, the outer coating of the cable breaks. Even though it still works on my iPhone! Thanks god Apple has improved the cables this year with the Lightning cable materials more durable- and less potential to not be broken.

    Works great but needs a new design.

    • Written by Christopher N from Charlotte

    The charger for my car needs to be replaced at least once a year because of the poor design. I usually sit the phone in my cup holder which causes the cord to bend to the left or right. By it doing that the wires on the inside basically get torn and damaged causing it to stop working properly. What also helps me is that I disconnect the cord from the base and not the cord. The Apple store told me to do that to prevent damage to the cord. If the cord was made thicker to help with everyday use, this cord would be great. Besides the design, the cord works great for charging. On a dead battery, I get at least 50% power within 30mins.
