    Has anyone has this issue happen to them?
    When charging my phone, the touch screen loses sensitivity and I can barely operate the phone, let alone swipe to open. However as soon as I unplug it, it works fine.

    Disclaimer: genuine apple lighting cable, iphone 5 verizon
    Doesn't do this when using my work blackberry USB wall charger with apple USB cable
    Doesn't do it with apple wall charger and cable.

    It Does do this when it's plugged into a dual USB charger I got from amazon. Clearly the dual wall charger issue I presume. Just wierd though

    Must be some kind of grounding problem in the USB wall wart, I actually have a genuine apple one that does this!

    I've had this problem on almost every ios device I've had when using a non apple charger. Idk why but I recommend that you use the original apple charger. Who knows what damage other chargers may be doing to your phone...
