There was an ... incident with our iPhone 6 charger last week while camping - the lightning connector end of the charging cable got dropped into a bowl of water, which the charger dutifully spent the night attempting to charge.
The lightning connector now has some black pins but there's no visible damage to the other end with the 3 pin plug. I don't know whether to replace just the lightning cable or the whole thing - any ideas?

Chuck the cable out - the lightning connector end has some circuitry in it which will probably be stuffed. No reason the charger itself should have failed though.

 

EDIT: Good source of certified (ie works properly) lightning cables https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/CABPQI1001/PQI-Apple-Certified-Lightning-to-USB-Cable-with-Re

Thanks - will get a lightning cable at some stage, although I'm a little reluctant to try out the charger with any of our phones or iPads..
