This handy cable does double duty: It syncs and charges iPhone or iPod, and it charges your iPhone Bluetooth Headset. Just plug it into your computer or an Apple USB Power Adapter.
- Cable type : Dock to USB Cable
- iPhone Bluetooth Headset not included.

Not for use with dock
Beware: If you plug this into an iPhone 3G Dock, it will stop charging the BT headset. It only charges the BT headset when NOT plu gged into the Dock. AFAICT the only way to charge both your iPhone and the BT headset is to plug this cable directly into the iPhone. A shame that Apple hasn't yet released a 3G-compatible Dual Dock.

Don't use with iPhone Dock
I also discovered this cable is not compatible with the phone dock for charging the headset. When the cable is on the phone dock, the headset will not charge, whether the phone is docked or not.
Wiered! (Apple should fix that as clearly, the people will intuitively connect this cable to the dock)
Unlike the previous reviewer, I think the cable is great, and the dock needs a low rating. …

this is the perfect travel cable, i love the fact it:
Pairs the headset upon plugin.
Shows charge status on the phone displa y.
Headset works very well too, far better than i imagined
*only wish - none of the current cables have the click connector to the unit any more (found on older generation sync cables), all pull out far too easily.

Cable is only good for one bluetooth, not universal
I received the cable and was very excited until I opened the box and noticed that it was not
compatible with my plantronics blue tooth. I called the apple store to ask which Bluetooth it
was compatible with so I can purchase that one because I really wanted the convenience
of the cable. I was told it is only compatible with the Apple Bluetooth...which they NO LONGER
MAKE. I am very disappointed; I would not of ordered it if I had known this, now I have to return it. …

what do I need to recharge my iphone and ipad in Italy? Can I get one charger that charges both at the same time?
- Asked by Maureen W from Bedford
- Mar 19, 2012
If you pack the charger which came with your iPad then you will have a device which will recharge bo th your iPhone and your iPad. This is because the iPad has a greater current draw so your iPhone charger will not work as well.
The only thing you will need then is an adapter for the european style power socket. An Apple world wide travel kit is available from the Apple store on line or you could walk into any Apple store or reseller and pick one up as well. …
