    Well i've had 4 chargers all from apple. They have all broke. I've had to purchase 3 of them (one i got with my phone) i am going to take one back on the warrenty.

    But does anyone have a recommendation of a different iPhone charger because the apple ones clearly break to easily. I'm not bothered about the price i just want a good charger!

    I've also had mine for 2 years and it's working fine.

    Are you sure you're taking good care of it?

    Just saying you had to have tried pretty hard to break the charger because I am still using the one that came with my ipod in 2005

    Thank you but i've tried my friends with the same one it takes ages to charge.

    ...

    I've not been careless, when i put it in my bag for school it just seems to get wrecked from getting caught on my books, gym stuff etc when getting it out.

    Any other recommendations?

    Put it in a different part of your backpack because I almost broke my charger a couple time from having for textbook sitting ontop of it until I moved it

    I break these all the time! Usually from charging them in a position like a hook.

    There could be a problem with your battery.

    My battery is fine. I would just like a different charger as they don't seem to last me. They may last other people but i've gone through 4 in 8 months!

    I solved that issue from buying headphones through a store that has an unlimited warranty on everything (Costco) and when they break I return them and buy new pack.

    buy chargers from 5below if you have thoes stores around you. They might even have an online store not sure tho. Dont feel like lookin it up but you can buy colored iphone cords there even for under $5

    The newer model iPhone charges (the triangle shaped ones) are pretty decent and as they're flat then they're harder to break. Saying that, UK plug prongs are pretty much indestructible (if that's the problem). Otherwise [Click here to view the link] looks alright, 10x of them so even when you break them you still have spare :tongue:
