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. …

Lightning connector still too short to work even w/ a slim case, June 2014
Needed so that iPod Touch 5th generation (lightning connector) will dock with a CD/alarm/radio (30-pin).
With a super-super-sli Needed so that iPod Touch 5th generation (lightning connector) will dock with a CD/alarm/radio (30-pin).
With a super-super-slim case on the iTouch, the iTouch appears to attach, but the lightning connector does not actually go in all the way, so its presence will not register at all, even to charge. But without a case the iTouch connected, synced and transferred the correct time to the clock, at first attempt and subsequently works well - it both charges and also plays through the clock's speakers.
My concern is that since the jerry-rigged contraption now pokes up almost 8 inches vertically out of the dock, the lightning connector protrusion in the adapter is going to bend itself out of commission before too long due to the weight of the iTouch and the inevitable wear and tear of removing and replacing it.
But we have shopped for three months locally, online and even on tv and could not find a CD/alarm/radio/iPlayer with a lightning connector in the dock or that came with a built-in adapter. And as my daughter has a ton of CDs and we don't want to spend hours putting them onto her iTouch, this is the best answer. The one we got came from HSN, btw, in case anyone else is looking for something similar.
I am rather shocked that it's been years now that reviews have been posted here saying that the lightning connector is too short to work when an iProduct has a cover, and yet Apple still hasn't apparently lengthened it. It probably needs about 2-3mm to make it work. Don't they read? Don't they care? Shame on you, Apple. …

Works for iPod Nano 7/MBZ. 30-pin
Just purchased new iPOD Nano 7. I have a 2008 MBZ 350ML that came with iPod 30-pin cable connector. So, had to purchase this adap Just purchased new iPOD Nano 7. I have a 2008 MBZ 350ML that came with iPod 30-pin cable connector. So, had to purchase this adapter in hopes it would work. I even called MBZ to inquire if MBZ makes this device and was told NO, but was advised to buy this device directly from APPLE. Called APPLE and inquired if they knew for sure it would work with my situation and was told "it should", but if not I could definitely return. So far, so good. Seems to work perfectly fine. Have NOT, however, determined if it charges the iPod when connected. Gave 4 stars because I feel it is overpriced. …

I have all the accessories for the iphone 4. The item is smaller then I expected but I actually like that more. It fits snugly. It works with the cords I have, and with my logitech speakers. It's secure on the speakers so I do not have to worry about it falling out. The sound quality is great, I do not notice any difference. The best part is it works with my otterbox defender case. I do not have to take the case off like many other reviewers have said. I am very satisfied with this product. I would definately recommend it. …
