    Piece of shit charger!!

    The iPhone 5 came with one cable to charge with. But I plug my phone in in my room, downstairs, in my car, etc etc... So I got two extras.
    Is it just me or do these cables suck? One of them is totally fucked and days it's having a power surge when plug into my laptop. Another one, the ends look all screwed up. I have one more that is still good as new. But I haven't even had them 6months!
    My other cables for my old iPod and such seemed to last forever, whatsup with these pieces of shit -_-

    Idk what the deal is here.
    The end that plugs into the phone seems like the plastic bunches up there, then proceeds to rip.
    Looks like the same thing is happening to my last good one.
    And these bitches ain't cheap... Considering all they really are is a "fancy" USB cable with an annoying end.

    I've actually never had a problem with mine. I even used to charge my shit with cords that had parts sticking out. Probably not safe but oh well lol.

    My laptop charger, however, is a total piece of shit that I've replaced twice.

    Can you get them replaced for free? Apparently a lot of people have been having the same issue and I think they at least cover the one that comes with your phone for up to one year under your warranty according to what people said on this thread:

    Not sure though ^u^;

    Yeahhhh, it probably costs them even less than that. They got all the Chinese sweat shops spitting em out like crazy I'm sure!

    tyty @Lorn !
    I have the warranty and everything one it, so ill have to look into that! It's not TOO much money, but if I can save myself that 10bucks, sounds good to me lol
