    My charger just flashes bright and dim when hooked up to I phone or iPad and won't charge either. Both can be charged on computer. Did my charger go bad?

    I faced the same problem with my Apple issued cable. You should hard reboot or full restore on the phone. I think it will fix otherwise take a visit to Apple store.

    Mine and my wife's phones both came with bad cords. Replaced them with OEM from Apple store and all is good! Ours only made it a week, mine was plugged into an inverter in the tow truck and the wife's was plugged into and outlet at home. Five months later and both a still going strong.
