iPhone 5 Cable issues

When I have been using the car charger to charge my iphone 5 at some point, it can be hours, days or weeks of using my lightening cable will just stop working. I can't charge or sync with it, either on a computer, AC or DC. I have used the cable that came with the phone and cables I have purchased off line. This just started happening a couple months ago using the same car charger I've had. Has anyone had the same issue. I've gone through about 7 cords now.

When that many cables aren't working, I'd start suspecting the phone is the problem.

I would agree. Have Apple check out your phone.

I would agree, but it just seems strange that it seems to be only happening when it's plugged into the car charger and not other ways.

What car charger are you using? Is it one specificly stated to work on the Iphone 5? The charger that I use for the verizon Iphone 4s I have will not work for my personal Iphone 5

I don't think so. It's been a while since I bought it but I purchased a new one that states it is for use with the iPhone 5 and it has done the same thing.

Re: iPhone 5 Cable issues

I had this happen once with the Apple charger (tried both of my Apple Lightning cables)  and I noticed I did not get that solid click when inserting the lightning connector so with a magnifing class I noticed lint in the port and took a flat wooden toothpick and cleaned it out then both cables worked with everything.
