    Anyone use the Amazon Basics iPhone charger? Read a lot of very good reviews, but have also seen some about melting their charger and phone. Pretty hesitant to buy due to that, any feedback?

    I have had one about six months and use it with my iPhone 6 and have had no problems at all.

    I have one as well. It works fine being apple certified. The only issue is that it has a large end which makes it less compatible with cases...

    Seriously?

    If you believe a MFI Certified charger melted someone's phone, I have a piece of land in Zimbabwe to sell you.

    Had one for ages for my iPhone 5 and used it no issues for charging and also worked connecting my phone to the usb socket in my car which is particually fussy about what cable is used!

    I have a couple and no issues here. Been using them for a couple years now. I prefer the amazonbasics charger vs the original. Just be aware the lightning end is a little larger than the original so it may not be compatible with certain cases.

    Bought a few of the long 6 foot cables and only encountered one problem, The insulation is very stiff and they can not be coiled tightly. Unlike the factory originals they will fail if coiled.
