    Hi, just noticed the charger isn't always charging unless you jiggle the wire a bit. Have been extra careful with the charger too... Anyone else had this yet or do you charge from docks etc?

    I'd replace it, so you don't end up with a bigger problem should you get a short somehow.

    Agreed. I had this loose connection on my car charger and days later, it shorted out and filled my truck's cab with smoke.

    Not to mention it burned the board on the bottom of the iPhones connector input.

    Wow, good advice! Thanks
    I quite fancy the stands charger rather than the plug in wires...
