    today I had my iphone at 23% of battery, I plugged it in my puro car 2.1 amp charger
    and it didn't charge.
    I bought this charger 4-5 month ago and it always charged my iphone without problems, although the light on the charger was on (and the charger working correctly, it charged my tom tom) the iphone WOULD NOT CHARGE.
    what is the problem?

    p.s. before the puro charger I had a chinese charger that worked for 1 month, then suddenly it stop charging my iphone just like my puro today, and I threw it away, the chinese charger wouldn't charge my iphone if the battery was below 25%, just like the puro...:mad:

    Done any troubleshooting? Does the device charge on other chargers? Do other devices work with this charger?

    Wayyyy misleading thread title...

    Charge it up with the official charger to at least 50% and then try it.

    ok guys, it was the fu****ng chinese cable that broke
    I'm sorry for this discussion but I was worried because it broke the same way for the second time and I thought it was iphone-related:eek:

    Maybe the charger died. I recommend this one:
    Anker 18W / 2.4A + 2.0A (3.6A max) Dual Port USB Car Charger for Apple Android and USB-Charing Devices - The First and Smallest Adapter to Provide Simultaneous, Full-Speed Charges to iPads and Smartphones [Black]

    Make sure you are using an Apple Certified cable.
