    NOT FULLY FUNCTIONAL

    • Written by from Silver Spring

    The price - like most things in life - is what it is. If you're an Apple regular, you should be used to that by now.

    However, it isn't fully functional. It works to transfer pics from my DSLR camera to the iPad (retina) - but it does not allow me to play video on my ancient TV using a 30 pin component cable (the yellow, red, white input job). I get audio through it. But no video. Not even the NTSC/Pal option in the video setting on the iPad is showing up.

    Peace.

    Save $20

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    Some of you are complaining about the price of this adapter. The solution is simple
    just purchase the Lightining to USB cable for $19 and plug it into your existing charger. VOILA! You Save $20

    Suits my purpose but it's pricey

    • Written by from Mine Hill

    Pros: It works perfectly and does exactly what I want it to. Yay!
    Cons: I had to pay so much & the fact that I even needed it in the first place. Boo!

    My sole purpose in purchasing was to allow me to connect my iPhone 5 to the USB port in my 2010 Honda CRV. I needed an adapter for my existing extra long 30-pin USB cable (no extra long Lightning to USB cables yet) The short cord doesn't bother me, and it connects to the lightning port without having to fiddle with my OtterBox case. If the cord were any shorter or not there, I think making connections would actually be a PITA.

    Worthless

    • Written by from Conroe

    The length of this adapter cable makes it completely worthless. I cannot imagine an application where this length of cable would help anyone. Couple that with the fact that no one appears to make a lightning extension cable and I have NO solution to connect my new phone to my old docking stations.
    Apple - Seriously, think about this for a minute and fix it. I need a 3 foot (1 m) cable. for the price you're charging for this cable, an extra 2.4 feet of cable isn't going to make any real difference in base cost and you might actually sell some of them.

    Doesn't work with accessories that require the lightning form factor

    • Written by from Winnetka

    For some reason, the lightning end of the adapter is substantially larger than the same end on the USB to lightning cable, so this will not work with anything the depends on that specific form factor. For example, I have a car mount that the cable is supposed to snap into, but it is made for the USB to lightning cable and this one doesn't fit in the mount.

    It seems to work ok otherwise, but it is definitely too expensive.

    30 pin to lightening adapter- Short, stiff cord with bulky lightening end

    • Written by from Sudbury

    Good -it charges and plays back itunes with my ihome.

    BAD - it has a too short, very stiff cord. Cord actually can stand up straight on it's own unlike the flexible charger that comes with the phone.

    BAD - the lightening end too thick so and I have to take off the case, unlike the 29.00 adapter which fits without taking off the case.

    BAD - Expensive. This Was a gift otherwise I suggest taking a chance on the knockoffs first.

    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.

    A little pricey but works well

    • Written by from Camden

    I have a Bose series 2 sound dock with the 30 pin connector. I have the newest generation iPad (4th) with Siri. These new ones have lightning connector. I bought the adapter and connected to my iPad to the Bose. The music played and charged well. Be careful what brand of sound docks purchased. Some may not support charging the battery like my In Motion sound dock.

    Mostly happy with it

    • Written by from Fredericton

    I bought this at an Apple store, and was shocked at the high price ($45). However, I had got a really cool new dock for Christmas that I really wanted to use that only had a 30-pin connector, so I got it.

    I'm very happy with it, and glad I bought it! It syncs with my dock perfectly AND supports charging. However, the cord is very short, and it's hard to rest it on the stand with out the tension in the cord wanting to flip it off. Once I found a good position though, it was fine. I'm looking forward to using it in my car!

    Apple FAIL

    • Written by from Chantilly

    I bought this because I got the ipod 5th gen for christmas but I have an expensive and high quality clock radio that I love and still want to use from LAST christmas.

    This cord works for charging when plugged into the old 30pin-to-USB cord and to my computer.

    This cord DOES NOT work for much else, especially not my clock radio. It doesn't even acknowledge that it's plugged in!!

    I wish I could take the whole ipod back I am so angry. I will at least take the cord to the store and DEMAND my $40 back. NO WAY, Apple. Absolutely no way.

    You morons changed the plug so you morons need to create an adapter that works.

    I like apple products but this is an insult.

    Disappointment

    • Written by from Birmingham

    The length of cable is too short; it needs to be at least 12 inches. I have a small clock radio designed for the 30-pin connector; though it is low, the iPhone 5 will not lie on surface without tension on cord.

    The Lightning connector itself is too fragile to support upright mobile devices without breaking easily. Apple should have thought this change through more thoroughly.

    It's too expensive for what you get. I could get a new clock radio designed for iPhone 5 for about what I paid for this cable.

    Does not charge iPad

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    Disappointed that it only performs half of its required function--I can use it to play music on speaker devices, but it does not charge. I consider this a major defect in this product, which, as many have noted, was not cheap.

    DOES NOT WORK in my 2013 BENTLEY

    • Written by from Palatine

    The lightning to 30-pin adapter with the cord does NOT work in my 2013 Bentley Continental GT. Sound is very Very BAD and distorted.
    I'm going to try an adapter only. I think because of thisextendedd cable this is happening.
    Someone posted a review on the adapter site that it works great but it did not with the cord adapter.

    Overpriced but necessary.

    • Written by from Richmond

    In a desperate moment where I couldn't find my charger and was at 10% battery I drove to the apple store and bought this. Just to confirm this adapter DOES work with my 2012 Nissan Versa iPod integration perfectly (steering wheel controls, in dash display, etc). It's good quality but $40 is awfully steep for something you're basically forced to purchase because you supported the company by buying their latest device, but what can you do?

    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.
