Get the cord adaptor instead.
I ordered 2 of these adaptors. BIG PROBLEM: they do not connect to your Iphone 5 if you have a case. (I have the speck case). Si I ordered 2 of these adaptors. BIG PROBLEM: they do not connect to your Iphone 5 if you have a case. (I have the speck case). Since EVERYONE has a case, I am confused as to why Apple would make this product, or not even warn you that it does not plug in when a case is on your phone. The cord adaptor is a bit more expensive, but at least you won't ruin your case by having to continually put it on and off to use the adaptor. …

Will not work if your iPhone 5 has any kind of cover
The length of the lightning adapter is too short if you have any kind of cover with your iPhone 5. I have an Apple-like bumper cov The length of the lightning adapter is too short if you have any kind of cover with your iPhone 5. I have an Apple-like bumper cover (similar to iPhone 4/4S) and the metal contact on the adapter is WAY TOO short. I suggest getting the Lighting to 30-pin Adapter Cable instead. The cable has a thin longer Lightning connection that will work with most iPhone 5 covers. …

Useful but expensive
It seems to be a useful adapter to have, but for it to cost £25.00? Seems a bit of a rip off to me...

Works fine for me
I have had the iPhone 5, now have the 5s and have used this adapter on both phones. I have the Otterbox Defender case and the adap I have had the iPhone 5, now have the 5s and have used this adapter on both phones. I have the Otterbox Defender case and the adapter works just fine with the case on the phone. No need to remove the case to charge the phone.
Not really a big fan of adapters due to the extra connection requirement as that can and sometimes does lead to some problems...the more connections, the more problems one may encounter. Would be better to just use an extra charging/sync cable...and it would be cheaper too, by about $10-$20, depending on length of cable used. And there's little or not problem of using a charging/sync cable with most protective covers being left on the phone to charge.
Each individual situation has its own 'problems' and a little 'common sense' will work them out. All one has to do is use it (common sense). …

People giving this one star are obviously un-educated. Many are giving one star because it won't fit a case or cover. In reality A People giving this one star are obviously un-educated. Many are giving one star because it won't fit a case or cover. In reality Apple can't just extend the lightning cable end like that. So first get your facts straight and realize that you are wrong. Third party cords will be the same. And matters on each case you have. So check yourself as well. …

Although it was a pain to have to buy the adapter in the first place when I bought my new Ipod nano 7th generation, it works great Although it was a pain to have to buy the adapter in the first place when I bought my new Ipod nano 7th generation, it works great. It connects to all of my 30bit devices with no sound difficulties. I use it for my Hyundai Ipod adapter in my car and my IHome. No complaints. …
