I recently purchased 2 iPhone 5's and two Lightning to USB cables in addition to the ones that came with the phones.  We tried to use the first L to USB with the power adapter and it wouldn't work.  Then today I tried to use the second L to USB in my macbook pro and it came up with the USB too much power error, so I tried to use it with the power adapter and it wouldn't charge.  So I got the L to USB that came in the phone box and it works with my laptop and the power adapter?  It just seems weird that 2 out of 2 cables wouldn't work.

 

Items used:

MacBook Pro 17" Mid 2010

iPhone 5 (2 different ones)

Lightning to USB Cable (sold separate) (2 different ones)

Lightning to USB Cable (included in phone box)

iMac

5V USB Power adapter (2 different ones)


iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.2
