My snooze alarm went off this morning. As I reached to my night table to silent my Harpsichord by touching the snooze button, a strong electronic burn smell accompanied several dual vibes (the ones that happen when you plug your phone in and its on vibe mode) occurred. I jumped up from my bed to notice smoke coming from the end of the cable just before the lightning connector! Is this a known issue? This is the cord that came with the iPhone5 when I purchased it. I noticed the second cord I purchased from Apple store two months later is reinforced at that section. Was there a recall that no one mentioned? Thank God I unplugged it before it damaged my phone or worse, set my bed on fire; considering I usually put it under my pillow once I hit snooze.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1
