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.

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.

    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.

    I bought this about a year ago for my new ipod so I could listen to music through my alarm clock/jack. The adaptor stopped working I bought this about a year ago for my new ipod so I could listen to music through my alarm clock/jack. The adaptor stopped working completely three months after I bought it. It did start to work again, but now it works only intermittently, sometimes not even responding. I have to take the ipod on and off to make it work. The employee said it would work well. This product is not worth $30.

    Additionally, my ipod does not sit centered on the adaptor, it is only halfway on, due to the location of the adaptor plug.

    I've had 2 of these now and the same thing has happened... after 1-2 months use the lightening plug part pulled out of the adapter I've had 2 of these now and the same thing has happened... after 1-2 months use the lightening plug part pulled out of the adapter.
    First time I thought it was me handling it too roughly so took more care with the 2nd... When it went, I suspect there's a design fault.
    Shame really as it should have been a good solution for those who have a mix of old & new devices and various chargers/docks strewn around their house/work/car!

It clearly states on the box and in all Apple's descriptions, that this adapter does not work with video. The adapter is also very thin so works well with the Ted Baker case I have on my iPhone 5. And finally, after trying a cheap imitation that only provided power, this works brilliantly with my Logitech docking station and now I have really good sound back again.
