    My amazon charger is breaking. I thought it wood be better than apple's but I guess not.

    I was thinking maybe I should just buy apple brand from best buy and also buy the accidental warranty so that when it breaks I could replace it...

    I said the flat version not the standard round ones.

    ----------


    Yes they will replace it. I've had very good customer service from them.

    I bought one from Amazon,it proved to be waste of money:( It heated up to a burning temperature when you touched it, and it didn't charge accurately.

    How many times do they replace it?

    ----------

    I see that there is also a retractable flat cable from monoprice for a dollar and forty cents more on amazon. Does that not break also?

    And does monoprice replace your broken cable even if you bought it from amazon and not directly from them?

    Perhaps instead of the quest for the unbreakable charger you would be better served to examine your use of chargers ;)

    I have had the 3GS, 4, 4s and the 5 along with 3 iPad versions and never broken a single charger
    They are actually quite durable when used appropriately

    What exactly is breaking?

    You say charger, so I assume your USB wall plug. Is your cable fine?

    No cable is unbreakable. Tech Armor is tough and has lifetime warranty.

    Is there an unbreakable charger


    I'm backing you up on tech armor. I have 4 of their 6' lightning cables and none if them show any wear... Taken care of...

    My entire family now uses them. I got tired of replacing cables. Apples are good for 6 months tops before they short out.

    That's not to say the Tech Armor will never fail, but if it does, they replace it very quickly and without hassle.

    If you buy warranty for the Apple cable, would they replace it every time it breaks? How much would be the warranty?

    The warranty for the apple cable is for 1 year. Just say I got my iPhone 8 months ago. Easy exchange.

    At an Apple store?

    Even if you happen to buy it from Best Buy?

    That what I learned that many people did here on MR. The Apple Store guy asks when you got the devices and if it is less than a year, they will replace the cable.
