Since ios 7 apple have made it very cumbersome to charge the iphone. I like to charge mine at work, and after using a 3rd party lighting cable without problems for a long time, ios7 made it very clear it hates that cable. The constant unplug/replug, warnings, etc. I gave up and purchased an extra original cable. I charge it via an un-used laptop docking station, solely for the UBS power. However the phone now informs me this device "might not be supported". Until i click "ok" - IT STOPS CHARGING. Meaning, if i dont see this, i would think my phones is charged when its actually not. Seriously apple - enough allready, just let us charge our damn phones using whatever cable and usb power source we want. Rant over.
