    I was wondering why my phone wasn't fully charging and discovered it was the lightning charger.

    Turns out it was not staying connected properly and did better with one side facing up and required a little jiggling to get it right.

    I have a Genius Bar appt tomorrow and assume they will exchange it but haven't seen many other complaints about this issue

    Yeah, I think it's shorting out as well.
    No rhyme or reason, just happens sometimes.

    I'll report back after my Genius Bar appointment tomorrow.

    Other than the charger issue, been a bump free ride with the new phone and its hanging out in just a bumper.

    Swapped for a new cable at Apple and was told the problem is more common than I thought.

    Mine shorted out one day. Thank goodness my wife was home or we might have had a fire. It was plugged into the wall, with no phone attached. started hissing and sparking. 3 of the contacts on the lightning connector had blackened and shorted out. Called apple and they sent a replacement with a return envelope right away got it in 2 days via fedex.
