    Brilliant device couldn't live without it

    • Written by from Telford

    Brilliant device, connects to all my docking stations! I also have one connected to the old iPhone charger as a permanent fixture because the iPhone 5 chargers are so unreliable! Worth every penny!!!!!

    A little expensive, but well worth the money!

    • Written by from Stratford upon Avon

    Purchased this adapter to connect my new iPhone 5 to my car radio system. Works perfectly, and the sound appears better now than it did from my old iPhone.
    Take it from me, don't bother with those cheap 'copy' items sold elsewhere, if you want to connect your iPhone 5 to any audio device which only has the 30-pin plug, then this is the adapter to buy!

    PS. Remember that if your iPhone 5 is in a case, you will either need to modify it, or replace it with one that has a larger slot to accept the width of this adapter.

    Does exactly what I want to

    • Written by from Felixstowe

    After having read negative reviews, regarding this product, I was a bit dubious about getting one, but the guy in the shop convinced me it would work as I wanted it to.

    I plugged it into the 30pin lead on my car stereo & lo & behold my sound system plays the music from my iPhone 5 & charges it, just like it did with my iPhone 4. Happy days

    As per the fitting while the phone is in a case, fortunately my phone cover is open at the bottom so the jack plug, charging port & speaker holes are exposed. This in turn means this adaptor fits snugly even while the phone is in the protective cover. I can understand that this product wouldn't fit if the protective cover was an all over one.

    Works Perfectly

    • Written by from Tunbridge Wells

    Mainly needed this for audio in the car and docking station, does the job for both so I'm very pleased with my purchase....I imagine some of the negative reviews stem fro, people buying cheaper versions on other sites, which only support charging NOT audio!

    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.

    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 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!

    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.

    B&W All of the (ZEPPELIN`S) Docking Speaker Stations, work fine i say.

    • Written by from Brentwood

    The only 1 true genuine apple adapter that clearly works with all B&W docking station, we all know they are expensive to buy but essential, i say dont go cheap on on apple gear & stomach the price tag for genuine apple items.

    And it does save you buying a new £499 Zeppelin later on aswell, Hope this has help many B&W Dockers out there.

    Should be a keyring fob

    • Written by from Market Harborough

    Works as stated, so 5 stars.
    I have 3 places I charge in the house, not including laptop, and 2 cars. Should I be spending £150 on adapters??? I wish Apple would drill a hole through the thing so I could attach to my keys and take with me everywhere without fear of losing it.
    My fear is that Apple has already thought of this, but hasn't done it because they want me to spend the £150...

    Works better then 30 Pin for me.

    • Written by from Leamington Spa

    I am using it in my 2006 BMW with an OEM ipod adapter, not only it work fine, but it seems to work better than a using the 30-pin connector on previous iPhone.

    I have noticed that this device has some sort of memory build in to it, when I disconnect the IPhone when I leave my car and come back to it later the last played track continues playing that track rather than starting from the first song on the device.

    Also when the IPhone is connected it start playing straight away, it doesn't go through the initialisation process which it used to do (about 30s to a minute depending on the number of songs) which was the case when I was using a 30 pin device.

    Couldn't be more happy with it as it fixed the flaws I had been dealing with in previous devices.

    Connected to my A5

    • Written by from Bury st edmunds

    Was given new Ipod touch 5th Generation for Christmas. I wanted to get all my music into one place and listen in my car.

    Have an Audi A5 2010 model and unfortunately I couldnt connect with the audi supplied leads.
    Purchased this 30 pin to lighting and it works really well. All the tracks and information are visible on the central in car screen and I can control the ipod from the dashboard.

    Well worth the money.

    Lightning to 30-pin Adapter

    • Written by from Somersham

    I got this from the Apple store on Oxford as I previously had an iPod and I wanted to be able to use my iPhone 5 to connect using my iTrip, my Bose system and to charge it with my existing car charger - and it does all of the above!!!! Most thrilled I can still use my Bose docking station with my iPhone 5 and the staff at the store were really helpful - it's secure, doesn't wobble and I am very happy. I am also able to use it with the phone still in its protective case

    works perfectly, stop complaining

    • Written by from Forest Hill

    This product works exactly as it says it will. It allows for 30pin connections to be used with a lightning iDevice.

    Please stop complaining that it doesn't do the following - It's not meant to!

    No, it doesn't support video, you need new adaptors for that

    It is not designed to be plugging into docks, it's designed for cables to be plugged into it

    It's not designed to be used with a case on your phone, but a case is YOUR choice, not Apple's, so is designed perfectly to be used with your iphone.
    (admittedly Apple could have got it better for use with Nano's)

    Lightning connector is reversible, so can not be back to front, try turning your phone round if you have this problem of not being able to see your screen with it plugged in!

    iPhone 5 connector

    • Written by from BRIGHTON

    I bought the Lighting to 30 pin Adapter from my Apple Store after buying 2 other connectors via Amazon. Although both of the Amazon supplied connectors support battery charging neither would enable me to connect to to the 30 pin connector and play audio into the car system. The Apple connector worked first time.

    So although the other connectors were individually cheaper I paid more in total than the one Apple connector. My guess is that the Apple connector contains the necessary circuitry whereas the cheaper versions do not. Whatever the reason I wish that I had bought the Apple connector first. It does what it says it does.

    Great Adapter

    • Written by from Newbury

    I guess a shift in technology had to happen in the end - the old adapter had lived through so many iPods & iPhones. This adaptor has worked perfectly for us to continue using existing iPod/Phone accessories.
