If you bought your phone in September, it should still be under warranty and the cable covered. There isn't (or wasn't) a need to purchase another one. And why did you pay $52 for an item you could purchase from Apple online for $19? http://store.apple.com/us/product/ME291ZM/A/lightning-to-usb-cable?fnode=45

I have an iphone 5 and the power cord will no longer charge at all. I purchased the phone 2.5 months ago. Seems ridiculous.

This Happens When The Cable Is Bent At A Point Continuously For A Long Time, Happened To Me Too!

or maybe Apple made a crappy product that continues to plague users with problems? Since this is one of many threads I've read indicating problems with either charger or charging/sync cable problems.
I have similar problem as megan_adams97 where my iphone 5 won't charge unless I'm holding the cable and I've only had my phone for a month. This is my second cable.iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.4

Getting this error message again, looks like I have to get my 3rd cable. "Ramanak" is correct, the cord becomes twisted, the connection at the very end bulges out (see below of my cable)
My first cable (connected to my Mac) was giving me the following error "Because a USB was drawing too much power..." I thought the issue was my new phone - this was back in October. These Lightning cables are flawed, I personally never had this issue with older 30 Pin connections.

I got my white iphone 5 in March 2013 but now it always have problems in charging. I've bought 4 charger on ebay, apple store and in a normal store, none of them worked more than 1 month!!! I tried to keep them new and not bent, Apple created crap and I paid $700 for it. This *****, I hope somebody can solve my problem cause I don't want to keep buying chargers.

Did you not bother to read the above posts ALL ITEMS IN THE BOX are covered by the 12 month warranty
You do not need to buy anything take it back to Apple and if defective it will be replaced

When you complain about "chargers", do you really mean "cables"?

Food for thought.
Since the introduction of the Lightening port, have we seen very many threads started about damage or defects to the port on the device?
Before you answer, I'll go ahead and assume the number is signifcantly lower than posts about damaged or defective 30-pin ports. I'll also assume that there was some planning involved in this change. Replace five cables at $19 (less for 3rd party) each, or replace one iPhone for $100 - $700.
