    Hey guys. Do any of you guys know where I can purchase genuine iPhone 5 lightning chargers? I mean doesn't have to suuuuper cheap just as long as it's not like $20. I'm tired of buying fake ones that always stop working.

    I wait til they go on sale. The last OEM I paid $8 for. Not gonna tell you how because the Apple authorized seller my change store policy. But it can be done.


    You can try Marshalls. They have Sharper Image chargers (USB and adapter) for $14.

    Genuine as in made by Apple? Or do you mean certified? Monoprice has certified Lightning cables in various lengths at a much lower price than Apple.

    Chargers?

    well a charger that works very well similar to apple's haha. I've noticed something about all chargers that suck and are fake. The actual connection is 2 metal pieces instead of 1 whole piece. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1395248486.447134.jpg
    compared to the other one I have (Long charger that I borrowed from a friend.) ImageUploadedByTapatalk1395248600.097635.jpg

It is 2 pieces of metal instead of one solid piece like the one on the bottom. (Bottom one was borrowed from a friend and it's one of those really long chargers). That top one died today lol doesn't even work anymore

    Got to the marketplace on these forums. There's a guy selling chargers and cables oem. He seems to have good feedback and it's cheaper.

    His user is farseide. Pm him.

    Yup I got the Apple lightning to USB cable for $8 that retails for $19 from an authorized Apple dealer. Took some shopping and coupons but I got it for $8.
