In an attempt to save money in a house full of iGadgets, we recently purchased a bunch of power cables on eBay. At a dollar a cable, it was a pretty big savings for us, and when the cables did the typical Apple bend and detatch, it was ok, we could quickly replace them and continue charging.
But we've struck a problem with a recent software update.
Not one single cable is working for long enough to actually fully charge any cable.
And we only have one brand cable.
With 6 iPads and 3 iPhones on the go, you can imagine how stressful it is!
So now we're stumped - do we invest in more of the cheap, generic cables and persevere with slow charging, or spend big dollars on brand cables, and go back to quick, unstressful charging?
What would you do?
