    Third party charger I recently bought is not charging my iPhone yet other third party chargers do. It will say it is charging but then the battery keeps decreasing and after it dies it wont turn back on but still says it is charging. I know it is the charger but is there anyway to make this charger work. It does not say "this accessory is not supported" or any of that. Currently my phone is dead and plugged in and shows the red battery blinking as if it is charging. So bottom line, how do I make this charger charge my phone?

    Some 3rd party accessory will work and some won't get past the detection protocols.

    It's always best to stay with official chargers or ones that are mfi certified.
