I don't have an iphone, but my wife does now. Can't you charge those things with a regular usb cord which are pretty sturdy? I could ask my wife, but she's out in the kitchen. Probably within earshot.I can't tell you how many of those little cords I've bought for the kids iphones at 20 bucks a pop. I swear they're designed to fail. The last one I got i duct taped the ends right out of the box and it still only made it a few months.......
I'll send her a text and see what she says.
