Warning Third-Party Cables Kills Your iPhone 5


According to a recent report, third-party cables could be the reason your Apple iPhone 5 doesn’t want tocharge, or will not back again to life.

From mendmyi:

“Charging your iPhone using a third party charger or USB lead that does not regulate this as much allows for larger variables in voltage and current, this then damages the U2 IC and can leave you with a seemingly dead iPhone 5. Another common reason for this is also charging your iPhone 5 from the cigarette lighter of your car. This does not regulate the voltage as well as the original AC adapter as the power is coming from the alternator. If you need to charge our iPhone or any electrical equipment in your car we would recommend a good quality inverter with your original charger and USB lead.”

The U2 is circled in the picture below:

The U2 IC is fitted to the board with 36 pins. The most common logic board repairs are simple IC coils that are knocked off have as little as 2 pins. Replacing this IC is a lot more involved! A picture of the logic board with the U2 IC removed is below:
