I use a clone charger wire for the iPhone. It looks very similar to an OEM version but is slightly different.
When I first started using it, upon closer inspection, I noticed that the metal connection end was a bit angled (when viewed sideways). I applied pressure to make the metal bit stick straight out.
First of all, I feel kinda stupid since it worked fine even though it was bent.
Now the thing only charges my phone for a few seconds before:
- iPhone says this accesory may not be supported
- iPhone acts as if I just pulled the charger from the port and stops charging
All while it's still plugged in and supposed to be charging.
What is wrong with the cable?
Edit: I accidentally dropped my iPhone while plugged in. The metal bit just bent like 30 degrees. I carefully bent it back into place.
