    Need this for playing Nano in Mercedes

    • Written by from Gerrards Cross

    This works perfectly if you want to play a Nano through the Mercedes media system. All the CD cover pictures, track info etc is as wanted, much better than using the USB cable and port.

    The price of the unit is truly ridiculous and adding P&P charges is an insult.

    Works fine

    • Written by from Crewe

    Works fine on my ipad mini and ipad 4 both have protective covers on them I use mine to play music in the car.

    It does come up with a warning on the screen saying not charging but if you look at the battery icon it shows that it is charging.

    Yes it's expensive but their are other company's on the market selling them for less than five pounds.
    The question you have to ask yourself is do you want to risk damaging your expensive Apple Product using them?.

    I know I don't.

    lightning adapter (the apple rip off scheme)

    • Written by from Sale

    Like so many other people's reviews i have recently read I too bought the iPhone 5 adapter as assumed i could use my docking station on my very expensive Hi-Fi system only to find out (no surprise) apple have ripped everyone off again. I have to give this product at least 1 star but in my opinion i wouldn't even give it that!!!

    Don't bother!

    • Written by from MARKET HARBOROUGH

    Whether it's the official one or a cheap one they do not work!!! Annoyed with Apple that they expect us to fork out for a new generation ipod to find that the adapters don't work on most docking stations. I have resorted to using Auxiliary on all three of my ipod docking speakers it's the only way around it unless you have the money to fork out for a new ones.

    Perfect!!

    • Written by from Pontypool

    I had previously bought a Bose sound dock when I originally owed an Apple iPhone 4, but when upgrading to an i5 I could no longer dock my phone. I had read previous reviews and was very skeptical about purchasing this product. After a long period of missing my listening to my music I decided to bite the bullet as it were and was over the moon.
    All the features of my dock work perfectly including the remote and I was very pleased. I highly recommend this adapter.

    Great, but a rip off.

    • Written by from Worcester

    Great, product and works 100% with my Parrot MKi9200 hands free kit so I can play, charge, select music, browse contacts etc just as I did with previous generations of the iPhone. However, it makes the connection flimsy and I am a little worried it may break at some point.

    Massively over priced, i think an RRP of £14.99 would still be steep but I would be much more likely to buy another if they were that sort of money.

    Overall I am happy with the purchase but do think it is too much money.

    Didnt do what I was told it would - useless

    • Written by from goring

    I bought one of these very expensive adapters for my Ipad as I already had a 30pin VGA adapter. I specifically asked the guy that sold me it if it would work for video and he told me it would - well guess what - it does not.
    Unfortunately I bought it at Barcelona Airport on my way home so no chance to return it. No use to me at all!

    Not happy!

    • Written by from Dundalk

    I bought this because i wanted to listen to my music on my docking station, as the connection holes are different i needed to buy this, so i did and although it charges my ipod it doesn't play music through the speakers. I am disgusted especially because of the price of it!

    Not worth it

    • Written by from weston super mare

    This is a big waste of money. Would not work on my car stereo. When put into a docking station it will play music through but will not charge. So its cheaper to buy a 3.5mm cable to play your music

    Audio but doesn't charge

    • Written by from Leigh on Sea

    Bought the new Nano with this adapter for my daughter. The Nano ran out of battery as the adapter only allows audio and no charging on her Logic 3 I-station. What a waste of money, Products should be fully compatible, especially a straight forward adapter at hefty cost of £25. It feels like fraud.

    It does work with my Denon Ipod dock so I know the adapter is working and the fault is in the design.

    Great adapter!

    • Written by from Newcastle-under-Lyme

    I bought this adapter after deciding not to waste my time or money on buying a replacement lightning cable after my iPad charger broke (poor quality!) and I am delighted with the alternative, the 30 pin chargers are far more reliable than the new models!

    I have bought two different lightning adapters for my iPod 5th gen, but they don't play music they only charge! It's a complete waste of money as I just want my music to play

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Rotherham

    Bought this adaptor expecting to be able to use my VGA connector to give an important presentation, only to find it wasn't compatible. This was not stated anywhere on the box! (Or what it is compatible with for that matter). I therefore assumed it would work. A complete waste of money for me.

    Does exactly what I need

    • Written by from Winchester

    Like many folk I wasn't particularly happy when I realised I wouldn't be able to use my phone on any of the 5 appliances I have. Initially I tried one of the "official" products off of a certain internet auction site and just got really frustrated when the only thing it did was sync and charged my phone.

    Thought I'd hold out a bit to see if apple dropped the price on this item but decided to bite the bullet and popped into the local apple shop and picked one of these up today (was re-assured by the lad in the shop who said they'd happily take it back if it didn't work), what can I say, should never have tried the alternative from the auction site, works in the car and all of the docks I have at home, really chuffed.

    I've only knocked it down a star due to the cost but hey-ho that's the world we live in today.

    It does exactly what I need it to do, great product.

    Perfect to match with old 30pin docking systems

    • Written by from AMMANFORD

    Allows my iPhone 5 to work with my Logitech MM50 speakers and also - most importantly my Dension ICE Lite kit in my car.

    Sound transfers via the lightning connector and seems very good quality. I have tried cheaper alternatives from Ebay, but none seem to allow the sound out via the connector (they charge and no sound) so Apple Lightning to 30 pin is the only way.

    I think they should have included at least one with the iPhone to help existing (LOYAL) users!! However, Apple are Apple and realise we will buy the stuff anyway I guess.

    glad it works!

    • Written by from Northallerton

    Having read a number of reviews on this item I was anxious as to whether it would work with my docking station. I did speak to someone at Apple and they said that the adapter doesn't work with all manufacturers but that they couldn't tell me which ones! Thankfully it does work on my Red DAB radio!

    I do have to agree with other reviewers that it only being available in white is a bit rubbish! Most docking stations are black/chrome and as such when I bought my new ipod, I chose slate so that it would go with my existing docking station, but as Apple had changed the connector I needed an adapter. With the adapter fitted, the docking station and ipod combo looks a bit stupid - as though there is a bit of lego connecting them!! But at least it plays!

    And, as othe reviewers have said the £25 plus £4 postage I think is pretty steep for this tiny little thing! It feels a bit of rip off really - it should come as part of the package when you buy a new ipod.
