    With iOS 8.0.2, devices are charging themselves if you bend them enough.

    Seriously: you probably just need to restart your iPhone. One other possibility, but extremely rare, is that you are using a non-Apple charger which doesn't work anymore under iOS 8.0.2.

    Must depend on the charger as I just charged mine with a third party non-authorized charger. I did get the notification that it was not a supported cable, but it still charged fine (all the way from 20% to 100% with no issue like it has in the past). I do have an iPhone 5 though, so it could be related to the device type as well??

    Yep ... the charger works on our 5c running 7.X.X... worked on our 5s running 8.0 ... worked on our 6 running 8.0 ... but now that the 6.0 is running 8.0.2 its not charging anymore. I'm not updating the 5c as it would not benefit from Yosemite's continuity/handoff.

    Back to the car charger ... its non-Apple and its as if the charger is dead, but its not because it charges the 5c ok. To make things even goofier ... I have a 8600 ma charger that I use on aircraft/trains/boats or in airports ... and it charges the 6 ok ... but only after I connect and disconnect it once???? - go figure that one out. The 8600 ma charger worked perfectly on iOS 8.0 .. no need to disconnect/connect again to make it work. I'll keep 8.0.2 on the 6 ...

    Mystery solved to my satisfaction ... close this thread, please.:apple:

    I was warned non-Apple stuff probably wouldn't work when I updated. I tried to buy Apple stuff but no stores within a 100 km radius stock any. I'm sure many other people experience the same issue. I had to buy non-Apple headphones and a car charger kit. It was guy who sold me the headphones who told me. So far the headphones work fine; I haven't yet tested the car charger but I might tonight when I leave work. If it doesn't, fortunately I still have a spare Apple cable, I just have to hope it works with the bit that plugs into the 'lighter socket'... I'm using a 4S.

    You can order stuff from the Apple Store via the web and it'll show up at your door. Or you can see what Apple is selling and order it from Amazon if it's cheaper on Amazon. No need to walk into b/m store. I live in the boonies and order everything.
