    IPhone 4 USB Charging Cord

    My daughter's apple iPhone cord became defective once again. So I purchased several others before coming to Best Buy. I spoke to a rep in the phone area whom 100% guaranteed me this phone cord would allow us to once again charge our iPhone 4. If not he dai you can always come return it? I brought it home, as with all others this cord did Not work? I went to Apple paid double her phone then worked once again.... I personally have No clue as to why No off brands would Not work with her phone. Or if this is something Apple does? Personally it did Not work do us.... I am sir others out there have had better luck, this was just my experience in an immediate situation. We had to wait several more days to then be mailed one straight from Apple with the Apple LOGO. Again No clue why... best of luck to others. I would recommend this at the least to try.

    Overpriced.

    A parent needed a replacement 30-pin adapter quickly, rendering me unable to use my go-to solution of purchasing cables through Monoprice, requiring me to purchase the Insignia 30-pin replacement cable at Best Buy. While, even at Monoprice, Apple cables are never cheap, because of their insistence on proprietary plugs, $18 is still ridiculous. The cable functions properly, but overall, it just provided one more reason that Android is the superior phone platform: cheaper to replace cables.

    An essential product but expensive & fragile

    This cable is an essential tool for those of us with ipads and ipods. It's expensive and fragile. Unlike cables which are plugged in and forgotten, gathering dust, these are used heavily. Unfortunately, they are more fragile than most similar cables. I have had sever fray after a year or so use.

    Returned first tv due to defective panel. So far on second tv I've had to call Sony support because when I turned on TV I had no sound and it wasn't due to the volume being muted. I had to reboot the tv. Not impressed at all so far.

    They always break

    It doesn't matter which brand you buy none of these cables last more than a few months which is ridiculous considering the originals that came with the devices lasted more than 7 years. They just make junk now and then make it obsolete as well.

    The apple cables are flimsy, and tend to break.

    The apple cables are flimsy, and not made as thick as any other computer or PDA devices. They appear to be made for quick obsolescent so one has to keep buying new cables. Apple needs to make better quality cables.

    Apple makes you purchase this if you want to use your Iphone 6 with older type devices like my Sony radio. I purchased 2 of them and one of them already doesn't work. Too bad as they are way expensive for what they are.

    They were great, until I realized they only work well in the outlet. I have issues using it in USB ports, such as the PC, it disconnects the phone and stops charging when plugged into desktop.

    I needed a traveling i-phone USB and car adaptor. So, I got this double to keep my i-pod charged, too. Unfortunately, this only seems to work occasionally. Hum?

    After two weeks the cable shorted out. Luckily it did not damage the item it was attached to. Best buy did replace the defective cable and the new one is working good so far.

    The cord frays on the ipad end after 6 months. After awhile the wires break & it doesn't charge anymore. This is the 3rd cable I have had to buy for the same reason.

    The wire casing tore fairly quickly but has held up since the original tear. Was replacing another cord that tore. Was hoping it would last longer.

    This charger is ok for short term use. This size charger is hard to find, most phones need a smaller connection.
