Get the cord adaptor instead.
I ordered 2 of these adaptors. BIG PROBLEM: they do not connect to your Iphone 5 if you have a case. (I have the speck case). Si I ordered 2 of these adaptors. BIG PROBLEM: they do not connect to your Iphone 5 if you have a case. (I have the speck case). Since EVERYONE has a case, I am confused as to why Apple would make this product, or not even warn you that it does not plug in when a case is on your phone. The cord adaptor is a bit more expensive, but at least you won't ruin your case by having to continually put it on and off to use the adaptor. …

Will not work if your iPhone 5 has any kind of cover
The length of the lightning adapter is too short if you have any kind of cover with your iPhone 5. I have an Apple-like bumper cov The length of the lightning adapter is too short if you have any kind of cover with your iPhone 5. I have an Apple-like bumper cover (similar to iPhone 4/4S) and the metal contact on the adapter is WAY TOO short. I suggest getting the Lighting to 30-pin Adapter Cable instead. The cable has a thin longer Lightning connection that will work with most iPhone 5 covers. …

Works well with slim covers.
Contrary to the reviews I've seen, I have had no problem using this while having a cover on my iPhone 5. I use this adapter specif Contrary to the reviews I've seen, I have had no problem using this while having a cover on my iPhone 5. I use this adapter specifically so I may keep using my car XM Skydock (love it) with my iPhone 5 that I alternately use both an Elago Slim-Fit Case and Incase Span Case on. I have no problem whatsoever with the adapter fitting snugly.
My only criticism is that I wish the adapter was a bit shorter. …

Although it was a pain to have to buy the adapter in the first place when I bought my new Ipod nano 7th generation, it works great Although it was a pain to have to buy the adapter in the first place when I bought my new Ipod nano 7th generation, it works great. It connects to all of my 30bit devices with no sound difficulties. I use it for my Hyundai Ipod adapter in my car and my IHome. No complaints. …

Doesn't Work With Apple Iphone Case
They sold this to me at the Apple Store and I asked if it would work with the Apple Iphone case on the phone.

Incompatible with Apple's own products
I've just spent a ridiculous $100 + taxes on three cables, a lightning to 30 pin adapter at $30, a USB adapter at $30 and a 30 pin I've just spent a ridiculous $100 + taxes on three cables, a lightning to 30 pin adapter at $30, a USB adapter at $30 and a 30 pin HDMI adapter at $40, assuming the combination would allow me to connect an iPhone 5, an ipad 4 and a 30 pin ipad to a variety of peripherals. As soon as you connect two Apple cables together you get an "incompatible" message, which is frankly a disgrace. This means you have to buy multiple, separate cables at huge expense for each device to even stand a chance of getting them to work with the same peripherals. Judging from other posts, even this won't provide full functionality on many of them. Sort it out quickly Apple, the competition are catching up and overtaking fast. …
