BIG PROBLEM: they do not connect to your Iphone 5 if you have a case. (I have the speck case). Since EVERYONE has a case, I am confused as to why Apple would make this product, or not even warn you that it does not plug in when a case is on your phone. The cord adaptor is a bit more expensive, but at least you won't ruin your case by having to continually put it on and off to use the adaptor.

I have an Apple-like bumper cov The length of the lightning adapter is too short if you have any kind of cover with your iPhone 5. I have an Apple-like bumper cover (similar to iPhone 4/4S) and the metal contact on the adapter is WAY TOO short. I suggest getting the Lighting to 30-pin Adapter Cable instead. The cable has a thin longer Lightning connection that will work with most iPhone 5 covers.

    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 specif 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.

    I bought this since I first force to use it to connect to my Audi. I have to either slip out the phone case or completely take it I bought this since I first force to use it to connect to my Audi. I have to either slip out the phone case or completely take it out in order to plug this stupid design adapter in. At the time, I didn't see another overpriced adapter that apple made. It works, however, deserve 2 stars and my >20 years Apple fan is more and more impatient and ready to not be a fan if another stupid move the company make again. Sigh...

    Don't buy this if you put the phone in your case, or if your intend use on the move, it not worth the trouble, spent 10 more bucks get another one!.

    Bought this so I could play my new gen iPod in my car. I have the 2008 scion tx and it ce with an iPod port with a cable, but ever Bought this so I could play my new gen iPod in my car. I have the 2008 scion tx and it ce with an iPod port with a cable, but ever since apple changed from the 30pin, to the lightning connector, I was not able to play my iPod in my car anymore. (Thanks a lot apple for taking more money out my pocket). Anyways, I bought this and now I can play my iPod in my car..but the sucky part is, this connector doesn't charge my iPod. I thought it would since my 30pin that I connect this adapter to, used to/is able to charge my old iphone(4) and my old gen iPod (the ones before the stupid lightning plug). C'mon apple we pay good, hard earned money for your stuff, at least stop holding out on us. Geez. Anyways, 3.5 stars for this since I can now listen to my iPod in the car.

  • Lightning connector still too short to work even w/ a slim case, June 2014

    Needed so that iPod Touch 5th generation (lightning connector) will dock with a CD/alarm/radio (30-pin).

    With a super-super-sli Needed so that iPod Touch 5th generation (lightning connector) will dock with a CD/alarm/radio (30-pin).

    With a super-super-slim case on the iTouch, the iTouch appears to attach, but the lightning connector does not actually go in all the way, so its presence will not register at all, even to charge. But without a case the iTouch connected, synced and transferred the correct time to the clock, at first attempt and subsequently works well - it both charges and also plays through the clock's speakers.

    My concern is that since the jerry-rigged contraption now pokes up almost 8 inches vertically out of the dock, the lightning connector protrusion in the adapter is going to bend itself out of commission before too long due to the weight of the iTouch and the inevitable wear and tear of removing and replacing it.

    But we have shopped for three months locally, online and even on tv and could not find a CD/alarm/radio/iPlayer with a lightning connector in the dock or that came with a built-in adapter. And as my daughter has a ton of CDs and we don't want to spend hours putting them onto her iTouch, this is the best answer. The one we got came from HSN, btw, in case anyone else is looking for something similar.

    I am rather shocked that it's been years now that reviews have been posted here saying that the lightning connector is too short to work when an iProduct has a cover, and yet Apple still hasn't apparently lengthened it. It probably needs about 2-3mm to make it work. Don't they read? Don't they care? Shame on you, Apple.
