    It works!!!!

    • Written by from MODESTO

    Use a slim cover, i.e., RingkeSlim.! I'm sure there's other brand out there. You got to be creative & resourceful. Buy this adapter, a bit more expensive but they work. You can buy knock offs but you will have problem with them.

    Adapter Works Great

    • Written by from Canyon Country

    I read some of the reviews on this and am surprised since I too have a cover on my iPhone 5 and have no problem with using this adapter.Works perfectly!!
    Must depend on your phone cover.

    Ended up in the trash

    • Written by from Calexico

    Did not use it once. My iPhone has a case. It will not work with a case. You have to take the case out of the phone. I am not willing to do that. I tried to "fix" it by cutting it into shape. Just threw it in the trash. I only had it for 24 hours. Stupid Apple engineers. I cannot believe they're so short sighted. Wasted money.

    wouldn't buy ever again.

    • Written by from Bakersfield

    It worked at first, but the little part that connects to your iphone broke off and was stuck. I got it out evenutally, but I would rather just buy a new charger to not have that problem!

    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.

    Does Not Work The Way Your Sales Team Said It Would

    • Written by from FRANKLIN

    My original ipod went kaput. We struggled to come up with money to buy a new one and weren't sure we were going to since the new nano has the lightening pin. We feared having to buy all new accessories since my old ipod was set up with a dock at our Mac, another doc at our stereo which also had an aux cable hooked into our stereo and our tv and I had an fm transmitter/charger that allowed me to listen on the car stereo as well. Your sales team assured us that the 30 pin adapter would work with everything so we would not have to spend more than the $30 for the adapter. Guess what? IT DOESN'T WORK WITH ANYTHING. I can no longer listen to my ipod in the car. I can no longer listen to it on the stereo. I can no longer watch tv shows with it on my tv. All it will allow me to do is charge the ipod in the old dock. This was a total waste of money and time. And it just makes me miss my old ipod since this one is only good for listening with earphones. Big whoop.

    Doesn't fit with case

    • Written by from Ashland

    I tried this with both a iPod 5th generation and my iPhone 5. The iPhone has a proper case, adn the iPod has a thin plastic case. In both cases, the converter was useless. I bought it to try and allow my daugther to use here iHome clock with her iPod 5th gen. Didn't work. This was a waste of $30.

    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.

    Okay Product

    • Written by from St. Albert

    This product is great is you have the older steroe or dock with the 30-pin connector however if you want to get this to charge your iphone or ipod it charges very slow and i would not recomend it!

    Unfortunate design

    • Written by from MERIDA

    Sadly this adapter was not develop with the common friendly standards from Apple.
    Why?, it's easy, the adapter cannot be used if you have a case mounted on your iPhone!
    So now on, the adapter box most have this advice: "Do not buy this adapter if you are willing to use a case".

    Doesn't work with anything!

    • Written by from Bozman

    I have yet to be able to get my adapter to work with ANYTHING! First, I have to remove my case every time I try to use the adapter. Once I do that and try, nothing is compatible. I've tried my handheld project (spent ALOT on that for business presentations; HDMI converter to play movies, etc. on my TV (worked with the iPad 2 just fine); SD card adapter; and chargers. Nothing works. I get nothing or I get a message saying not compatible.

    I don't know if this particular charger works. I've went personally to the apple store. I'm on my third Charger! No one breaks them! they just...stop charging my Ipod. So i personally think this would be better. and you can plug it into docks, yay :P

    Though this adapter works fine with 30-pin cords and docks, it doesn't work with most iPhone 5 cases. Because of its terrible design, it doesn't reach far enough to connect to an iPhone 5 wearing a full body case. I'm astonished that apple can make such thin and revolutionary phones, but can't make an adapter that doesn't require you to take your case off every time you use it. How about make it in the shape of a triangle???

    You have to be kidding..really

    • Written by from Clermont

    This is my 3rd IPhone, and have always be pleased with the phone as well as accessories. No more, Went to my local AT&T store to upgrade to the I5. I also purchased a new SPECK cover that is designed for the I5. My husband inquired about an adapter to put into my other car charger that went with my 4S. Was told no problem so I purchased the adapter for $29.. The only problem is it will not hook up to my phone because it does NOT extend far enough to go into the plug opening. I am returning it to my dealer.....So it's not compatible..really

    works even better

    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.

    Overpriced w/limited compatibility

    • Written by from Rochester

    Have major investment in Bose Soundock & Pioneer Car stereo w/30 pin iPod/iPhone connections, sound & controls work fine but they do not charge my iPod. For the jerk calling us morons, not everyone goes out & replace everything to match some new technology, & there is very little directly supporting Lightning right now. Not charging my iPod is a BIG thing to me, especially after spending $29 for a small but wide chunk of plastic that I had to carve part of my 1st case to be able to use it.

    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.
