    Hello people of the forums!
    Im looking for an answer or maybe just some insight to the following issue.

    My parents have the iphone5 and have been through FOUR wall chargers ( the small white cube adapter) since January. Typically they work for a few weeks then die. Anyone have any idea whats going on?
    Bad batch of adapters??
    Maybe its the phone??
    It doesnt get hot while charging or anything.

    Thanks;)

    Are they plugged into surge protectors or straight into the wall outlet? Maybe some bad wiring in their house. I've had a couple Apple brand charging cables go on me but never ever had a problem with the plug.

    Same here. I've seen the cables break but never the plug itself. They may want to have an electrician check their house out!

    They had an iphone 3gs, and 4s with no probs. ever since the 5 it's been downhill....but..
    Good advice. Thanks!...I'm thinking it's the electrical, or the phone somehow.
