    Ok, at first, I liked the new lightning connector...now, a month later, it won't charge and it looks like this:

    I know it's blurry but hopefully you can see the issue. I don't put pressure on the cord and i don't pull it, so what is going on?

    You are making a joke correct? Ok now I see you pulled the interface connection from your iPad along with the power plug.

    Are you talking about the bulge in the covering of the cord where it goes into the connector?

    I can now see the bulge in the cord. Was this caused by a sharp bending at that point?

    While the bulge in the cord doesn't always mean that the cord is't working correctly, it apparently does in your case. I think you should take it to an Apple store to have it checked out. Maybe you can get it exchanged.

    Maybe it's time for the real thing, seeing as the el-cheapos don't last.
