:bang:My 14 year old Daughter has the iphone S5 which I added to my plan a year ago. Big problem: What is going on with the Lightening Chargers? This is no joke... In one year I have had to purchase 8 of these charging cords at a cost of $26.00 each. When I ask the "Apple geniuses" at their store, they tell me it must be misuse. (Ok, at first this was plausible but for 6 months I have been watching my daughter use these charging cords and she ALWAYS inserts and unplugs them from the phone base in the most delicate manner.) By contrast I've been abusing and beating the snot out of a 4 year old Android Charger and still it even works great on my HTC M8 WP and never a problem. So am I just 8 times unlucky with 5 original Apple chargers & yes, 3 failures with what I thought would be a better Belkin Lightening charger? They are no better. There's no way I'm the only person having this Lightening charger problem so may times. I could hit a 3 digit Lottery before that kind of bad luck. The problem is so bad I'm about ready to pay the iphone off and get her a Galaxy6 or HTC phone. (Don't get me started on why the iphone screens crack so easy even with a protective case.) I beat the snot out of my HTC and don't even use a protective case! It still works just fine.
