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).

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. …

It work but very unreliable, bulky, buggy, and odd the thoughtless design!
I bought this since I first force to use it to connect to my Audi. I have to either slip out the phone case or completely take it I bought this since I first force to use it to connect to my Audi. I have to either slip out the phone case or completely take it out in order to plug this stupid design adapter in. At the time, I didn't see another overpriced adapter that apple made. It works, however, deserve 2 stars and my >20 years Apple fan is more and more impatient and ready to not be a fan if another stupid move the company make again. Sigh...
Don't buy this if you put the phone in your case, or if your intend use on the move, it not worth the trouble, spent 10 more bucks get another one!. …
