    Recently my iPhone 5 seems to intermittently stop charging even though the connection to the cable seems solid - This happens using both a USB connection to a PC and to a wall adapter.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue? I've tried several different cables (all official) with similar results

    Had a similar problem. Check the lightning port. Most likely you need to clean it. It's a magnet for lint and dust.

    Clean the lightning port and it should start charging :)

    Yes it is defiantly the lightning port. Most likely lint stuck in it.

    Well further to this I did give it a clean out and it worked for a little while but now the whole thing has packed in no matter what I try my phone won't charge :(

    Will have to send it in, funnily enough the same happened to my iPhone 4! I seem to have a habit of breaking the charging port on iPhones!

    Do you have any cotton wool buds or a PC keyboard vacuum? That might remove whatever is stuck in there...

    If you have an apple store near you, you can go and ask them to clean it out.
