So I'm starting to think this "digital" charger Apple decided to go to was a big mistake. Direct me if there is another thread on this. I've only used my charger when it is plugged into my laptop; I leave it on the charger every night. This morning my iPhone would start charging, then stop, then charge again. I started to think maybe there was a cut in the cable, there was not. I then questioned, maybe my phone is a defect, or I got a defect charger. I then look at the "digital" authorization part and it is showing some SERIOUS wear. Many times now I have to unplug my iPhone and get a cloth and clean the auth. part to get it to charge. I never took a good at the auth. part since I got it, since there was never a need. I ask everyone to look at their auth part on their charger and post their impressions. Is anyone else experiencing this? In the pics I show the full cord, with no visible cutting damage. Then both sides of the auth part.
