    Perfect

    • Written by from Aurora

    The ridiculous Apple price aside, it's a perfect product. I just purchased a 7 generation iPod Nano and I have owned a Bose series II sound dock for just over a year. The Bose accommodates a 30 pin, not a lightning. The adapter is tiny and it works well. It also charges my Nano 7 gen while docked. The audio is perfect. I can only speak for the Nano...I don't own/want an iPhone. Also, problems with a bulky case dates back almost a decade so please, enough with the complaints about this product not working with your bulky case. I would give this product 5 stars if the price was closer to $10.00.

    So far, so good.

    This adapter works great with my iPad mini! If you have a lot of 30-pin chargers lying around, I recommend you buy this adapter to make use of those cables.

    No problems

    • Written by from Diamond Springs

    I have an iPhone 5 that has an Incase cover. I've never had a problem connecting the adapter with the case in place. In fact, I've never had a problem with any iPhone case made by Incase or "bumper" made by Apple. I believe that the second simplest solution to issues of adapter connectivity with a case is to buy better-designed case - The simplest is just to go without.

    Does the job

    • Written by from Glasgow

    Okay, so it's not the prettiest but it does the job. It works on my Roberts and my Bose and that's all I wanted it for. To all those who say it doesn't work perhaps you need extra attachments which come with the likes of Bose and Roberts. Note to Apple though - cut the price and get some new colours please.

    4 out of 5

    • Written by from Billingham

    A good product and I'm only knocking off a star because of the price, it does seem a bit expensive for what it is but I guess you get what you pay for. I've read a variety of reviews where some people say they can only charge their phone via the docking station or only play music but not charge etc but I got told its something to do with whether your docking station is capable of doing both. This seems to work well with my phone and docking station allowing me to charge my phone and play music so I'm happy. The only other point to mention would be depending on what type of cover or case you have on your phone, if you do have one, you might need to remove the cover to make sure everything connects up properly.

    BUY FOR ITS USE WHY IT WAS MADE.

    • Written by from WHITESTONE

    I I had actually purchased 3 of these since I had many old iPhone chargers sitting around plus this was very portable to take on the go with me. It has done nothing but what it was made to do it simply turns my old iPhone charger into a charger for my iPhone 5/5S's. I'm so stunned at these reviews you're all mad because it doesn't fit with your case.... are you kidding me? So go buy the actual lightning USB cable, what are you expecting? a redesign into the end so its thin and skinny enough to fit? It's an adapter for gods sake, plus cases ruin the beautiful design of the iPhone itself imo never have used and never will let alone use it as a terrible excuse to bash a product made for simple general use.

    Expensive but compatible with Bose Sound Dock & VW in car

    • Written by from Aylesbury

    I feel this product is expensive, however it has enabled me to use my new
    iPhone 5c with my existing Bose Portable Sound Dock (it both charges and plays music) and it is also compatible with my VW in car lead (again both charges and plays music). So this adapter successfully does what it is suppose to!

    Works as described in my 2010 Audi A5 with AMI

    • Written by from Chateauguay

    Switched to the iphone 5s and needed a way to connect my new iphone to the car's music interface. This adapter works perfectly and seamlessly with the cable and audi music system. The sound quality is great. The cheap generic charge/sync adapters would't work properly since they don't have the analog/usb audio signal converter. This works as described, however costly! But it's apple, what do you expect...
    For those whining about covers, well get a smaller or botomless cover and use your judgment when buying a case and adapter duo. I've had no problems whatsoever, but I use an ultraslim cover. Hope this helps! Cheers.

    A necessary expense

    • Written by from Dorchester

    Just bought a used Jaguar XF with an iPod interface and wanted to connect my gen. 7 nano.replacing my 4th gen.
    Tried a couple of different cheap adapters from the auction site. A complete waste of time effort and money.Take my advice don't go there.they just don't work,It's not even worth trying to return them either.
    Just bought the correct apple one from John Lewis in Bournemouth. Works a treat ,exactly as it should.The assistant even said they would take it back if it didn't work (as you would expect)
    At £25 it is well overpriced for what it is. Apple should include this with their iPods /phones. They are pennies to make.Four stars not five due to ridiculously high price.
    Any way thank you JohnLewis.

    Works well, but annoyingly expensive

    • Written by from Redmond

    Great adapter, works with my iPhone case although my wife had to get a different case for her iPhone 5 to get the adapter to work for her. My only gripe is that $30 is way too much for this tiny thing. Ideally I would want to have a whole bunch of them, but at this price I only have a couple, which have a tendency to get misplaced.

    Works great, BUT ....

    • Written by from Hamilton

    I purchased my Lightning to 30 pin adapter direct from the Apple Store and it worked perfectly with my new iPod Touch and all the devices I plug it into: Bose SoundDock Portable, iHome clock radio, various car and home stereo adapters, etc.

    I would give it 5 stars except for the high cost and the loose-ability factor.

    The one and only problem is that this thing is SO TINY !!! Lost mine last night somewhere, and at 35 bucks they ain't cheap to replace ! These need to have some sort of lanyard or something attached to lessen the chance of loss. Going to buy a new one this morning, will try and figure out someway of harnessing the little gizmo.

    Works perfectly. but the price is too high.

    • Written by from Bryn Mawr

    I purchased the adapter in order to use my new nano with my Bose system and in my car. The adapter works perfectly with both system. Using it with my nano in my car, a 2010 Acura RDX it woks without any problems, However, the price is very high. Considering the price of an Ipod or Iphone it would be nice if Apple included the adapter with the new devices.

    Works perfectly in 2010 WV Sportwagen...

    • Written by from RESTON

    Just upgraded to an iPhone 5 and added this adapter to the phone end of my Cable Jive MDI extension (30 pin) in the car and it works perfectly. All interface options work perfectly, steering wheel and radio buttons work great. The only draw back is that I need to remove my case to allow the Lightning plug to plug in to the iPhone 5 hence the 4 stars and not 5.

    than the cord that came with my iPhone, which sadly only works in certain positions. I've had my adapter for a few months now and it works really well to charge/sync my phone. It also connects to my Bose SoundDock with no issues.

    This is why it seems expensive

    • Written by from Mosman

    For those questioning the cost of the converter, this is the primary reason - the new lightning connector does not support analog componentry like the old plug system did. To get around this apple have built into the lightning adapter a digital-analog converter to make devices geared around the old system still work for you (in most cases). If you were to see the electronics that are crammed into the adapter you would be amazed. Do a web search if you are interested. To be perfectly honest I doubt Apple are making a great deal of profit on the adapters, although I am sure they are.... I am still not particularly keen on having to pay for it, luckily I can see a reason for the change. The adapter has worked on all of my many old style devices including my car.

    Morons.

    • Written by from Holbrook

    Everyone who keeps reviewing this bad saying they bought it to use with an iHome or something similar and complaining it didn't work is a moron. If you couldn't tell that this little adapter wasn't going to support the weight of your phone, or iPad then you deserve to have spent 30~45 dollar for nothing. Especially with the fact that the Lightning Connector is tiny as heck. This worked fine for me for converting all of my cable based accessories. Other than that, stop being cheap and pick up a new dock. You spend all this money on a new device and then you're mad when your old devices accessories don't work with it? Grow up. This is how it's always been. Welcome to real life.
