    iPhone charging chords dying remarkably fast

    by the name of a user ·

    Hi I’m in need of help with lightning cable charging chords for Iphones. I’ve used probably around 7 over the past 2 weeks, all dying incredibly quickly. The first couple lasted a few days. Then 1 lasted one night before dying. Another one then charged my phone only once. The one after that, I tested to make sure it worked, then I came back into my room to charge my phone and it no longer worked. After only a second of use!

    The chords have no visible sign of damage, they simply stop charging. I’m not sure what the problem is but I’ve tried: changing outlets, trying different blocks, using different brands of chords. And the brands of chords worked before. the last one even died at a different house.

    It’s getting to be an expensive and time consuming problem, most of the nights now I can’t charge my phone at night and it’s interfering with my schedule. Any help or tips would be appreciated, im starting to think its my phone itself but I have no tech knowledge. Thank you.

      Try the cables with another iPhone to know if it’s the cable or the phone that doesn’t work. Any cell phone shop can do it for you, if you don’t have access to a second iPhone yourself.

      I’ve seen this and the user had bought cheap (really cheap) chords.

      Other than that I’ve never seen this issue. A quality chord cleared that user’s issue instantly. Well almost as they did kill the next chord in a few weeks. It took some discussion and they were hanging the phone by the cord due to their circumstances. At first they pushed back with “it shouldn’t be so fragile” but hey, before they began abusing the chord they had 2+ years on the first chord.
