I have yet to find a decent lightening cable for my iPhone. I was hopeful with this one as the issue I usually have is the cable itself freying and breaking. However, about a month and a half ago I started having problems with it. I found that my phone wasn't charged after being plugged in all night. Then I realized that unless the charger was plugged in on one specific side (and even then it wouldn't always work), it wouldn't charge. Last night I went to unplug my iPad after realizing it wasn't charging and the connector broke off in my ipad. Now, I know I can be hard on my chargers, but I've never had one break like that. I'm very disappointed as I paid over $40 for this cable hoping to get quality for the price. I will be emailing the manufacturer as well.
