    Great adapter but expensive

    • Written by from Linden

    I have been using this adapter to charge my phone and it has worked well for me. It will transmit audio but will not transmit video. Obviously the price is a bit painful.

    Works for iPod Nano 7/MBZ. 30-pin

    • Written by from Orange

    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.

    Works fine for me

    • Written by from Nampa

    I have had the iPhone 5, now have the 5s and have used this adapter on both phones. I have the Otterbox Defender case and the adapter works just fine with the case on the phone. No need to remove the case to charge the phone.
    Not really a big fan of adapters due to the extra connection requirement as that can and sometimes does lead to some problems...the more connections, the more problems one may encounter. Would be better to just use an extra charging/sync cable...and it would be cheaper too, by about $10-$20, depending on length of cable used. And there's little or not problem of using a charging/sync cable with most protective covers being left on the phone to charge.
    Each individual situation has its own 'problems' and a little 'common sense' will work them out. All one has to do is use it (common sense).

    The ridiculous Apple price aside, it's a perfect product. I just purchased a 7 generation iPod Nano and I have owned a Bose series II sound dock for just over a year. The Bose accommodates a 30 pin, not a lightning. The adapter is tiny and it works well. It also charges my Nano 7 gen while docked. The audio is perfect. I can only speak for the Nano...I don't own/want an iPhone. Also, problems with a bulky case dates back almost a decade so please, enough with the complaints about this product not working with your bulky case. I would give this product 5 stars if the price was closer to $10.00.

    So far, so good.

    This adapter works great with my iPad mini! If you have a lot of 30-pin chargers lying around, I recommend you buy this adapter to make use of those cables.

    No problems

    • Written by from Diamond Springs

    I have an iPhone 5 that has an Incase cover. I've never had a problem connecting the adapter with the case in place. In fact, I've never had a problem with any iPhone case made by Incase or "bumper" made by Apple. I believe that the second simplest solution to issues of adapter connectivity with a case is to buy better-designed case - The simplest is just to go without.

    I I had actually purchased 3 of these since I had many old iPhone chargers sitting around plus this was very portable to take on the go with me. It has done nothing but what it was made to do it simply turns my old iPhone charger into a charger for my iPhone 5/5S's. I'm so stunned at these reviews you're all mad because it doesn't fit with your case.... are you kidding me? So go buy the actual lightning USB cable, what are you expecting? a redesign into the end so its thin and skinny enough to fit? It's an adapter for gods sake, plus cases ruin the beautiful design of the iPhone itself imo never have used and never will let alone use it as a terrible excuse to bash a product made for simple general use.

    Works as described in my 2010 Audi A5 with AMI

    • Written by from Chateauguay

    Switched to the iphone 5s and needed a way to connect my new iphone to the car's music interface. This adapter works perfectly and seamlessly with the cable and audi music system. The sound quality is great. The cheap generic charge/sync adapters would't work properly since they don't have the analog/usb audio signal converter. This works as described, however costly! But it's apple, what do you expect...
    For those whining about covers, well get a smaller or botomless cover and use your judgment when buying a case and adapter duo. I've had no problems whatsoever, but I use an ultraslim cover. Hope this helps! Cheers.

    Works well, but annoyingly expensive

    • Written by from Redmond

    Great adapter, works with my iPhone case although my wife had to get a different case for her iPhone 5 to get the adapter to work for her. My only gripe is that $30 is way too much for this tiny thing. Ideally I would want to have a whole bunch of them, but at this price I only have a couple, which have a tendency to get misplaced.

    Works great, BUT ....

    • Written by from Hamilton

    I purchased my Lightning to 30 pin adapter direct from the Apple Store and it worked perfectly with my new iPod Touch and all the devices I plug it into: Bose SoundDock Portable, iHome clock radio, various car and home stereo adapters, etc.

    I would give it 5 stars except for the high cost and the loose-ability factor.

    The one and only problem is that this thing is SO TINY !!! Lost mine last night somewhere, and at 35 bucks they ain't cheap to replace ! These need to have some sort of lanyard or something attached to lessen the chance of loss. Going to buy a new one this morning, will try and figure out someway of harnessing the little gizmo.

    Works perfectly. but the price is too high.

    • Written by from Bryn Mawr

    I purchased the adapter in order to use my new nano with my Bose system and in my car. The adapter works perfectly with both system. Using it with my nano in my car, a 2010 Acura RDX it woks without any problems, However, the price is very high. Considering the price of an Ipod or Iphone it would be nice if Apple included the adapter with the new devices.

    Works perfectly in 2010 WV Sportwagen...

    • Written by from RESTON

    Just upgraded to an iPhone 5 and added this adapter to the phone end of my Cable Jive MDI extension (30 pin) in the car and it works perfectly. All interface options work perfectly, steering wheel and radio buttons work great. The only draw back is that I need to remove my case to allow the Lightning plug to plug in to the iPhone 5 hence the 4 stars and not 5.

    than the cord that came with my iPhone, which sadly only works in certain positions. I've had my adapter for a few months now and it works really well to charge/sync my phone. It also connects to my Bose SoundDock with no issues.

    Everyone who keeps reviewing this bad saying they bought it to use with an iHome or something similar and complaining it didn't work is a moron. If you couldn't tell that this little adapter wasn't going to support the weight of your phone, or iPad then you deserve to have spent 30~45 dollar for nothing. Especially with the fact that the Lightning Connector is tiny as heck. This worked fine for me for converting all of my cable based accessories. Other than that, stop being cheap and pick up a new dock. You spend all this money on a new device and then you're mad when your old devices accessories don't work with it? Grow up. This is how it's always been. Welcome to real life.
