    Works well with slim covers.

    • Written by from Washington

    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.

    Works as Stated

    Overpriced gadget adapter! This adapter works as stated. I wanted it so I could continue to use my iHome Alarm Clock/Radio (love to wake up to a streaming radio station). It works with the audio, charging, and all other commands. It's built really well, just severely over priced. If half the price I would give it 5 stars and buy more!

    Must have!

    • Written by from Mint Hill

    This little adapter is what you need to use your iPhone 5 with the Bose sound docks (until they come out with a new model that has the smaller pin connector). It works fine, however you will need to handle gently when connecting with it since the small side of the adapter looks like it could probably break really easily.

    Works as advertised

    • Written by from Roslyn

    I bought this adaptor because I had 4, 30-pin cables already when I got my iPhone 5. This adaptor works exactly as needed. Allows me to sync to my desktop, charge with the wall outlet and control the iPhone via my car steering wheel controls through the USB port. I also have a Griffin black snap case on my phone and it does not block the adaptor. Saved me the trouble of wasting the old wires. Only problem is the price tag, it's about as big as a quarter and cost about $35 after taxes. Other than that it works perfectly.

    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.

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

    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.

    Works great but the price ...bleck

    • 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.

    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.

    This adapter only works with cases that don't cover the bottom of the phone. If you have no case this adapter works great !!!!

    Nice product!

    • Written by from Chula Vista

    I purchased this to mainly intergrate with my car stereo. It does what it's supposed to, and stays firmly in place. Its a high quality product. I have an Otter Box case, and like many the adapter did not fit correctly. It wasn't really a big deal. I used my Dremel and enlarged the opening just a bit. Now the adapter fits perfectly. I would have given it five stars, but I think it's a bit over priced.

    Good for iPad, iPad mini

    • Written by from KAUKAUNA

    We have two iPod touches (5th gen), an iPad (4th gen), an iPod nano (7th gen), and an iPad mini. This works great with the iPad and iPad mini. It is not case friendly with the iPods. If you would like something case friendly, look at the cable version. I use it a lot, seeing as the Lightning connector just came out. My iPad mini is the one I use it with the most. It syncs and charges. I gave it four stars because it is not case friendly with the iPhone 5 and the Lightning iPod lineup. I hope you found this review helpful.

    No Video

    • Written by from KOROPI

    I have an iPhone 4 and now an iPad mini, bought this to connect the mini to the Apple Composite Cable that is connected to my home stereo. Disappointed to find out that this connector does not have Video capability meaning I now cannot watch content on my iPad mini to my stereo or TV.

    Come on Apple, it should "just work". I would like to hear the reasoning behind leaving video out from its features...

    Apart from this, all other functions work fine

    Works with my iPad mini and iPhone 5 including with cases on (both Marware and Casemate cases). Would rate it a 5 star if it wasn't so expensive.

    Fits perfect with Otterbox defender series

    • Written by from Redding

    It seems like it was made for this case. I appreciated the positive reviews saying it fit because I was almost afraid to try it. It snaps in. I like the secure fit, but not so tight that it scrapes. I gave it 4 stars because I think it should work with video. It is a keeper for me. One of the things I dislike about these kind of adapters is that they aren't really secure. When it is on, it feels like it is part of the case phone set up. It also comes out easily.

    Works as expected!

    • Written by from Miami

    Pros: Charges very quickly. I like that the plug is smaller. I always felt the other one was too big even from the first time I purchased an iphone in 2009.

    Cons: Length of cable. I always thought they were too short anyway. Price: It's an apple product... they're overpriced in EVERYTHING.

    Comment: To those who blame the cable for not fitting with a phone-case.. How about blaming the case instead? The adapter is about as thin as it needs to be. It's the case-manufacturer who needs to work around the cable, not the other way around.

    Pricey, but it works!

    • Written by from Shelby Township

    Previously attempted to purchase an aftermarket substitute for the lightning adapter for the 30-pin plug for my trucks radio. Those products weren't recognized by the radio or my iPhone 5, but did provide charging and data transfer into a computer.

    After being unsuccessful with the cheaper option I decided to try the Apple branded lightning to 30-pin adapter. Without much expectation, it worked well beyond my expectation! The radio and iPhone instantly recognized the device providing a charge to my iPhone. An audio signal was provided from my iPhone to the radio and the radio controls worked for pausing songs, changing tracks, as well as rewinding and fast-forwarding (just like before the adapter using my previous iPhone 3G and 4.

    The adapter itself seems expensive, but it WORKS! I do not rest my iPhone right side up resting on the adapter for fear of the adapter breaking in the lightning port.

    Small and compact enough to stick in your wallet. The width of your 30-pin to USB cable. Easy to lose. Over-priced. Necessary if you have the iPhone 5 and need to connect to devices like docks and such. Did I mention over-priced?
