    Let me plug in my PKard CAC/PIV Reader

    • Written by from MANSFIELD

    Worked great in letting me plug in my existing PKard smart card reader - worked right out of the box, so I can continue to get to secure sites and don't have to wait to buy a new 9-pin version of an accessory that I already own.

    Poor design

    • Written by from WASHINGTON

    Why would you even create this form factor when clearly most people use a case for their iPhones (at least most people who want to protect their investment)? SMH. I love you Apple, but your money grabs are irksome.

    Does not workk with case

    • Written by from Chatham

    We have 2 iPhone 5 cases and this adapter is useless with both of them -- yet both cases work fine with lighning cables. It renders our sound dock useless. Someone should make this adapter with a few milimeters of case-compatibility around the adapter!

    Thank God

    This adapter maybe short, but I am in love with it. I have 4 "old" iphone/iPod chargers, and they work impeccably with my new iPhone 5 charger. Get one!

    No good if you have a case

    • Written by from O FALLON

    Like the other reviews, if you have any case on your phone (including a bumper) this will not work.

    Disappointed, can't use

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    I am very disappointed with this product. I knew there might be an issue with it working with various accessories. I have a Sony Dream machine that I have used with my iPhone 3gs and was very excited when this adapter finally came in. It works fine with the radio, however, it won't work with my iPhone with a case. I have a very minimalist case and don't want to take it off every night. I like to charge my phone overnight but still have it near me. Does anyone know if I can return this to the store even though I ordered it online? Thanks

    Comes up short for most cases

    • Written by from twin falls

    The adapter can work perfectly, however, it will not work with most cases. If you would prefer it to work..... please read. The adapter must be able to sit flush against your phone for the lightning plug to reach the phone. Many iphone 5 cases have an opening just large enough for the lightning port to fit flush against the phone. You need an opening large enough so that it will allow your old 30-pin connector to sit flush against your phone. Open ended, snap-on cases, like the Incase Snap Case, will work perfectly.

    Sad this doesn't support video

    • Written by from Saint Francis

    The only negative I could find with this is no video support. As for the problem with the case, speck makes flip cases especially because of the charger not fitting with a case on. I had to buy one for my iPhone 4S even because my charge would not fit the opening on the speck candy shell. check out specks case called a flip. still candy shell in appearance but the bottom piece flips up so you can connect any charger or dock.

    Will Not Work if iPhone 5 is in a case

    • Written by from tulsa

    I ordered this adapter to use in with the hard-wired 30-pin cord in my truck. My iPod Nano is a 30 pin, but, as you know, the iPhone 5 is an 8-pin connecter. A perfect solution IF your iPhone 5 does not have a case. If your phone is in a case, the 8-pin connecter will not stay connected. Period.

    Piece of junk!

    • Written by from winfield

    I had to cut up my protective case to get the adapter to connect! Why doesn't Apple sell the actual cord that comes with the phone? You guys have to know a lot of people are putting protective cases on their phones and yet you sell a product that as wide as the old connector! Why bother changing the type of connector at all if your not going to make the adapters at least taper so it will be similar in size to the connector/USB cord that comes with the phone! Love the iPhone 5 but this really annoys me! Wise up and start selling the cords like the one that comes with the phone as an accessory!

    Making it work with a Bumper

    • Written by from London

    I love the new lightning connector - much easier to use. This adaptor however has its problems. First the price seems quite outrageous. Second the design isn't that flexible. It seems designed primarily to SUPPORT the iPhone in 30 pin docks. The down side of this is that (1) it covers the speakers quite a bit (2) it will not work with a bumper. Many bumpers for the iPhone 5 are difficult to remove as they have backs - needed because of the many cutouts on the bottom of the phone. I got the adaptor to work with my bumper by trimming the white plastic back about 2 mm to the metal casing using a Swiss Army penknife (wood saw & metal file).

    I use this with my new iPod in my very old Bose docking system. Works perfect, though looks a bit odd.

    does not work

    Worked fine for the first few week. But now it never holds in and only works on one side (ironic) and will disconnect in middle of the night.

    I have the INCASE clear snapcase, it fits fine

    • Written by from Bothell

    It fits in my snap case, the form function is quite small but effective. More importantly, it works with my car stereo, who does not have a lightning adaptor (nor will one ever come out for it... its 4 years old).

    If you have a case get the other adaptor, but this adaptor works just fine as it was designed. No fault of Apple for that.

    Great if you can get your hands on one

    • Written by from Fort Myers Beach

    To those giving negative reviews because it doesn't work with a case that doesn't make it a terrible product it just don't work with a case. Works great, no video or iPod out obviously, but it still works with displaying album art on my car stereo which I was happy about. If you have a case get the cable version. Wish the would have been ready an in stock at launch.

    Rally gives you an appreciation for how much smaller the new dock is.

    • Written by from Virginia Beach

    Not too happy about the price, but I like the new Lighting plug. The adapter works well and I haven't had any issues. 4 stars (probably should be 3) for the price.

    Don't bother

    • Written by from CHESTNUT HILL

    I purchased the adapter to use with my Sony Dream Machine (not sure of the model, but it looks like the ICF-CS10iP so that might be it). It charged the device, which was good, but the audio was terrible, and also mono (I could hear the backup singers, but not the lead singer). If I tilted the phone a bit to the left on the adapter, it played in stereo, but it still sounded like garbage (and looked stupid too). Also, as others have mentioned, the phone sits perched on the tiny adapter, which angles slightly backward, with no support, so I worried about damaging the adapter, or much worse, the phone itself. If the adapter actually worked I would have solved that by making a shim out of foam or something, for the phone to lean on. (My next step is to try the corded adapter, which I'll review separately.) On a positive note, however, my iPhone case worked fine with this adapter. I have a Vineyard Vines case that is made by CaseMate and is very slim. The bottom of the case is almost entirely cut away, so all the ports are accessible.

    Works with Ringke Case and iHome iA-100 dock

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This little adapter (tinier than I expected) works well with the Ringke Slim case (which is very thin and doesn't cover the iPhone loudspeakers).
    I'm using it with my iHome iA-100 audio dock, which I bought previously for my 4S.
    The adapter works very well for all functions: charging, audio, and the clock/radio controls with the iSet App.
    Obviously with the adapter the iPhone isn't anymore in contact with the dock, and is strangely perched; also the white color of the adapter feels odd between the black of the iPhone and the black of the dock.

    Product works great

    • Written by from LAS VEGAS

    Of course there are gonna be folks who just want to complain and go out of their way to say something negative about this product and all I have to say is don't listen to them OK.This product clearly said it did not stream video if you would've read that before you ordered it OK. For the price of $29.99 I am perfectly happy with it and it snaps on the end of my existing 30 pin adapter and it is tiny so it hardly takes up any space in my compartment in my 2012 cC300 Mercedes and I have no complaints .For some folks like me all I need is the adapter because I have the existing harness that connects to the car already .
