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. …

Stopped playing music, still charges
My adapter decided to stop playing music on any speaker system, but will still charge my device. Not particularly useful.

Not Supported Error
We use iPads in school and we had the 30 pin adaptor. This product wouldn't work and said that it was not supported by the iPad.

Lightning Adapter stinks
Hey Apple. It's been two years, don't you think it is time you listened to the reviews and released a decent 30-pin to lightning a Hey Apple. It's been two years, don't you think it is time you listened to the reviews and released a decent 30-pin to lightning adapter. I have two of these that I shaved down with an exacto blade so they would work with my kids cases, but this is unsightly and is hardly what I expect from a company known for it's industrial design. If I wanted to modify stuff myself, I would just buy from Microsoft or Samsung. Maybe it is time I did. …
