    Was a lil worried after the reviews, but it works fine for me me...

    • Written by from The Woodlands

    Primary reason I bought this was to see if the iPad camera connection kit I just picked up last fall for my iPad 3 would work on my iPad mini w/retina I just bought---any other uses were just icing on the cake. I have a Nikon D5200 and both adapters in the kit (the SD card reader and USB adapter) work just fine---USB connection has issues if the battery on the camera itself is running low but otherwise works great.

    Next, got down to trying it on everything else in the house…late model Samsung home theater receiver w/iPod dock (bought it waaay back when the iPod w/video first came out), and my Sony Dream Machine clock radio w/docking station I bought 3-4 yrs ago. Both the iPad mini AND my iPhone 5s work great on these "senior" devices. Aaaaaalmost bought the version of this adapter that's just the connector without the cable extension---glad I didn't so I could ensure everything had room to plug in and seat correctly. Not as slick-looking, but in this case I preferred function & versatility over form.

    My car has Bluetooth and USB interfaces to connect music devices rather than an iPod-specific connection, so had no chance to try this cable there. Guess I can try it with rental cars when I travel but with all the alternate ways you can connect iPods/Phones to car stereos, this wasn't a big personal concern of mine.

    A really awesome product for the Bose Sounddock II

    • Written by from voorhees

    I recently bought this product for my iPhone 5s because I have a Bose souddock II product made for the 4S, when I found out that the iPhone 5, 5S, & 5C upgraded to the lighting port, I decided to get this "Lighting to 30-pin adapter"... if you have a speaker product that doesn't match the 5S product, then this "lighting to 30-pin adapter is for YOU!

    Kia Sorento 2011 Compatible

    • Written by from Midlothian

    Did some research for a product to convert the 30Pin to the 8pin. I have the new iPhone 5S and iPad with retina display. The iPhone has an otterbox case and I read from the reviews that the smaller converter would not fit or that the 8pin gets loose from the angle that the phone is at. I have a 2011 Kia Sorrento with the 30pin ipod cord that has a USB and Aux cable. I needed to make sure that this cord would be compatible with other non Apple products since Apple changed the algorithm in all their cords. I bought it yesterday and hooked it up. Works Great. Have not tried it on any Ipod Docks or any other locations except for my car. The price at $42 with tax is outrageous, but I couldn't handle listening to regular radio for 2 days straight when I drive at least 2-3 hours a day in the car.

    Works perfectly - overpriced

    • Written by from Berkeley

    We are using this with an iPad mini to get the analog audio line-out as well as charging it at the same time. We already had a 30-pin breakout cable.
    It works perfectly. No issues at all.

    Not sure why it needs to cost $30, or why other manufacturers can't make a similar product, but it's the only one I've been able to find that has a female 30-pin connector on a cable.

    Works Great! A little pricey.

    • Written by from Macedonia

    I bought this to regain the ability to listen to my music in my 2010 VW Tiguan (no MDI, bluetooth phone link only) via a 3.5mm stereo Auxillary jack. I have it connected to a third party "Y"-cable (30-pin to USB and 3.5mm stereo plug). It allows me to listen to my music and charge my iPhone 5S. It seems to be outputting a line level signal to my radio just as my 30GB Video iPod did.

    Works great

    • Written by from Richmond

    I'm glad that I did not read all the reviews before buying this adapter. If I would have listen to the reviews I would never brought this adapter. The adapter works great with my iPhone 5. It work great with my beatbox by dre, my car, and other 30 pin docks.

    Finally, someting that works!

    • Written by from Adrian

    I got my 5s a week ago. I have had terrible difficulty with NOEM (non-original equipment manufacturer), both cords (i.e., USB to lightning) and adapters (i.e., 30 pin to lightning). If you plan to use 5s with stereo's (e.g., Bose, iHome, etc.) this adapter works great! Apple products, as always, are overpriced but so far it's been worth it. Everything will work properly. I am giving it 5 stars based on its functionality, not Apple's suggested retail price.

    Works with BMW

    • Written by from Fort Lauderdale

    I have a 2007 BMW with the iPhone Y-cable that has a 30-pin connector. With this car option and using the BMW Y-cable, I am able to fully access the music on my iPhone and use the iDrive controller and screen and steering wheel buttons. I just upgraded my iPhone from 4S to the 5S so needed a 30-pin to lighting connector that will still work with my current car's electronics. This cable worked flawlessly and I maintained all functionality.

    Of course in newer BMW's the point would be moot, as you can control the music on the iPhone though the car's electronics using Bluetooth. But I am not ready to get trade in my car.

    Adapters Rule! I Love This Adapter!!

    • Written by from Mesa

    I've been buying electronic adapters since the late 60's when I was a just a kid! Because I always thought of new ways to hook up devices. Radio Shack *almost* always had the adapters I needed.

    Trust me, if you can't find the adapter you need, and no one makes it, that totally hurts.

    This product is well made, sturdy, and does the job. Yeah, $29 is better than $39; but if you can't get it anywhere else? $39 is fine with me.

    I have 3 tiny 'boomboxes' that all have that 30-pin connector. All is good now. I'm totally satisfied.

    My case on my iPhone 5 is an Otter Box Defender. Buy the best. And it has a huge, thick rubber flap that folds down, no problems with the Lightning plug.

    30pin Camera Kit to Desktop USB Keyboard to iPad Mini

    • Written by from BOWIE

    I had some concerns, after reading other people's reviews, whether this adapter would work to allow me to connect a usb keyboard for writing and email. There are times when my bluetooth keyboard runs low on power and I had been able to connect my a desktop wired USB keyboard to myiPad 3, the question was whether it would work on the iPad Mini via this adapter. The answer is YES!!

    Works for my needs

    • Written by from Maynard

    I bought this at the Apple Store the other day. I've had my iPhone 5 for about a month, and during this time I could not listen to music on my iHome. It drove me crazy, so I bought this cable, even though it is 40 dollars. It works for me, it charges my phone and lets me listen to music, so it does everything I need.

    Meets My Needs

    Works great for my needs. In my car I'm able to change songs on my iphone through the steering wheel & it charges as well. On my Bose sound dock I'm able to change songs with the remote. Only downside is the price & I'm thinking I need another one to keep in my car.

    Great Adapter! Ridiculously Priced!!!

    • Written by from Grande Cache

    I bought the cable from Apple after trying a cheaper Chinese cable. The Chinese cable only charged my phone. I could not get it to play music through the cable. I use a JBL ON STAGE 400P. The Apple cable worked great. I cannot believe how Apple gouges customers for simple cables that are needed when THEY switched to the lightning plug. We as customers are held basically without any choice and Apple should reconsider the outrageous price that they ask for the necessary adapters that all consumers need. Hey! We already sink enough money into your many devices, so why not treat us fairly!?!?

    The adapter cable from Apple works great!

    Worked great with a 2009 Dodge Journey factory Ipod connection

    • Written by from Tacoma

    Had doubts if my Dodge factory radio unit would connect audio from it's 30 pin iPod connector to my iPad mini. This lighting adapter in addition with a Scosche passport charging adaptor is compatable with the factory radio unit controls. The iPad battery gets charged along with great sounding audio! Couldn't be happier! Hope this review helps Dodge/Chrysler owners out there.

    iphone adapter for Audi A5

    • Written by from broomall

    I have an Audi a5 without Navigation. I used a Ipod/Iphone cable with the "Blue" Grommet. This new adapter allows my IPhone to connect seamlessly, with the added benefit that I can now stream Pandora and the AUDI MMI system recognizes the songs. With previous IPhones the audio system would time out while streaming Pandora and revert to music on my iphone.

    This cable is pricey at $39.00 but I wasn't willing to take a chance on a cable from a third party manufacturer. Also, the extra 8 inches on the cable makes maneuvering the phone much easier.

    Works GREAT with Bose Sounddock

    • Written by from SAINT LOUIS

    This item works great with the Bose Sounddock. You should know Bluetooth must be turned off and when you're playing music you must select Sounddock as your output for audio.
