    works even better

    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.

    It's ok to read once in awhile

    • Written by from Virginia Beach

    1. You can look at the box and tell if it will work with the case you have on your phone.

    2. It says on the box it does not support video output.

    All in all, I think it's great & I can't wait to use my old 6ft 30pin cord.

    Meh... at best

    • Written by from Boston

    I originally bought this so I could dock my phone on my Beats By Dre BeatBox.... it doesn't even work. All that happens is that my phone charges, which is pretty cool I guess... but I can't play music. The only reason I use this now is to bring around with me in my pocket in case my phone is dying so that I can use someone else's 30-pin wire and charge my phone... because everyone has a 30-pin wire. Works fine with other docks, sadly just not with the BeatBox.

    Don't buy

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    If you would like to take your case off your phone every time you want to use it, than this will prob work for you... did not work for me though. I wish I would have had a change to read all these other reviews before... I am returning this and getting the adapter with the cord.

    Worked great for me.

    • Written by from Fort Myers

    But it was very helpful that I read the reviews prior to making the purchase. I made sure I bought a phone cover that didn't interfere with the connecting of the adapter.

    Works like its designed to

    • Written by from Ligonier

    If you are using a case this is not the product for you. The other 2 that wrote a review must have never had a case before on their iPhones. If you have a case buy the longer adapter. Use your brain people.

    Apple oversight...

    • Written by from Monterey

    You'd think that Apple would have at least thought to make this adaptor work with devices in cases of their own design and manufacture. Sadly, that's not the case. I have the new iPad Air, with Apple's own leather cover, and the lightning end of this adaptor is not long enough to go through the opening in the cover to reach the device. This adaptor is useless, unless you don't mind removing your device from its cover every time you need to charge or sync. Is this kind of inattention to detail what we'll be seeing from Apple in the future? SJ would roll over...

    Can't play 7th gen Nano on any of my docks

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I received a 7th generation Nano as a gift, and was looking forward to replacing my 5th generation one. I was disappointed to find that it had the "lightning" input instead of the old 30 pin, and I'd have to shell out more money to be able to listen to music through my docks. A bit of a rip-off, but I love my music so I bought this adapter. I have 3 different docks (that worked beautifully with my old ipod), and this thing won't work with any of them. With one, an "accessory not supported" message shows on the ipod screen, with the second, nothing at all happens, and with the third, the ipod won't physically fit in the space because the adapter causes it to stick out sideways compared to how the old one would sit. A big waste of money. I'm kicking myself for letting the old ipod go. I should have stuck to what worked.

    Does Not Work With Apple Case

    • Written by from Saint Louis

    I wish I had read the reviews before ordering. This will not work on my 5s while in the leather case from Apple. Very disappointing as the case is not easy to remove.

    Does Not Work The Way Your Sales Team Said It Would

    • Written by from FRANKLIN

    My original ipod went kaput. We struggled to come up with money to buy a new one and weren't sure we were going to since the new nano has the lightening pin. We feared having to buy all new accessories since my old ipod was set up with a dock at our Mac, another doc at our stereo which also had an aux cable hooked into our stereo and our tv and I had an fm transmitter/charger that allowed me to listen on the car stereo as well. Your sales team assured us that the 30 pin adapter would work with everything so we would not have to spend more than the $30 for the adapter. Guess what? IT DOESN'T WORK WITH ANYTHING. I can no longer listen to my ipod in the car. I can no longer listen to it on the stereo. I can no longer watch tv shows with it on my tv. All it will allow me to do is charge the ipod in the old dock. This was a total waste of money and time. And it just makes me miss my old ipod since this one is only good for listening with earphones. Big whoop.

    The adapter is allowing me to charge but that is all. I am unable to connect to iTunes or transfer data from my phone to my computer via the cable?! Not worth the price!

    Works with Yamaha YDS-10 dock and iSimple car set up.

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I was very skeptical about upgrading my iphone 4 to 5 because of the compatibility issues, but it turned out to be a non issue for me. Got this adapter mostly for my car and it WORKS. I installed iSimple mod to AUX input so I could listen and charge Iphone at the same time, as a bonus I can skip tracks from the steering wheel. This adapter allows me to use the iPhone 5 just the same. My yamaha piano craft RX-E810 and ipod dock work with this adapter as designed. I can control my iphone through a remote, see my playlists etc right on the display.
    A slim case is a must for this mod to fit.

    Great Adapter! Works with my iSimple in Suburban!

    • Written by from SPRING

    5 stars because this little adapter does exactly what is claims! It works with my iHome alarm clock dock, all my existing cables and Yes! it works with the iSimple cord my husband had installed in my suburban about 3 years ago to play my iPhone/iPod over the car stereo. This adapter still allows the cord to charge my phone and it plays just as before with all previous functions and the sound is still superb. I am very happy!
    My only complaint is that I want a lot more of these adapters and they are expensive! I would love one to leave one on the dock and to leave one in the car and I would love to have one to carry around in my purse for emergency charge needs. My kids all want one for their iPods now as well. $30 here $30 there-Adds up quickly....Oh, those Apple geniuses...;)
    This adapter works fine with my thicker two piece case. I simply cut the thin little rubber pieces of my case off that were located on either side of the speakers and the adapter now fits and goes on and off easily. The cases were made for lightening not 30 pin. Cases and docks/connectors have always had issues. It is not the first time that I have had to modify a case to fit a 30 pin connector nor will it be the last I'm sure.
    I am very satisfied with this adapter. Then again I have yet to be disappointed in anything Apple. ;)

    Not as simple as people seem to think

    • Written by from Calne

    Considering how small this item is, it's quite a clever bit of kit. To convert a digital signal from Lightning into an analogue output like you find in the 30 pin connector means this has a DAC (Digital Audio Converter) inside it, and it sounds quite good as well. I've not found a DAC this cheap, let alone this small. Only trouble is it looks a little tacky. More colour options would be nice.

    Rubbish, expensive piece of plastic

    • Written by from Bristol

    Just does not work with any of my 3 devices. My radio alarm, speaker dock and car all do not play music through it. The clock radio will charge the phone but the other two won`t.

    Come on its an apple product. It should work out of the box.

    Shameful, price and a shameful product, its this sort of things that give apple and its customers a bad name.
