it believe the cabel is faulty as well
I have to plug my phone into the cable a number of times to get it to charge as well. I have tried multiple new lightning cables with the same result. Not sure what to do??
I have similar problem, and Apple is not prepared for it, only listening to clients with appointments. My iPhone5 bougth yesterday (Serial No. F2LJD9MDF38W) at Best Buy Dadeland Miami only starts charging when has Zero power (I guess). I left the iPhone5 charging all night. This morning the battery was charged 20%, and try for several hours to make it work. No success. I went at 11AM to the store, and with the phone dead, it started charging up to 6%. Ivan Ruiz, an Apple employee at Best Buy told me to go the Apple Store, since Best Buy did not have replacement cables (hopefully this is the problem). I arrived 45 minutes ago at Apple Dadeland Mall, two employees of Apple Mike L and a blond lady (with freckles) told me I needed an appointment, so they can take care of my problem. Mike L reacted and said that he can give me an appoitment at 1PM, and had to wait one hour more. I said that I wanted the problem to be solved now. Chris Gomez jumped into the issue and help me with a replacement cable, but reminding me I should buy Apple Care, since many thing could go wrong with the phone. I refused the offer. I am now charging my iPhone5 at Apple Store. I hope this is the real problem. I have been a satisfied BlackBerry user for almost a decade, and I tried to make the change to iPhone5 yesterday. Let see if I stay with it.
Now, it is 11:15PM and the iPhone5 seems to work fine with the new replacement cable.
Mine connected to the computer fine to activate but when I went to charge it last night it charged a total of 10% in 3 hours. When I unplugged it, it jumped from 30% to 34%. Then I turned over the 6 pin connector and plugged it back in and it began charging very quickly. It went from 34% to 99% in about 90 minutes but would not go to 100%. I unplugged it again and plugged it back in and it immediately went to 100%. I'm really confused if its the cable or the battery meter that is having issues. Any info greatly appreciated.
I am experiencing the jump from 99% to 100% when not connected and then 100% to 99% when it is connected. I also seems like one side of the connector charges better/stays connected better than the other.
All I can say is that I have already made an apointment at the Genius bar for tomorrow and I recorded my problem on a video to show them.
I too got my iPhone 5 Friday battery was almost full when it came, but tried to charge it last night before going out and nothing? Thought it was my outlet socket so tried another room this worked for about 10 mins then stopped,
I phoned Vodafone straight away but was on hold for 45 mins so gave up which killed my battery further, then rang apple who said as the phone is less than two weeks old it's vodafones responsibility, however the apple guy did say if it needs replacing I my have to wait up to 5 weeks as the demand is so high!! Gutted :-( iPhone 4 here we come again lol will let u know the out come.
