Get the cord adaptor instead.
I ordered 2 of these adaptors. BIG PROBLEM: they do not connect to your Iphone 5 if you have a case. (I have the speck case). Si I ordered 2 of these adaptors. BIG PROBLEM: they do not connect to your Iphone 5 if you have a case. (I have the speck case).

The cable has a thin longer Lightning connection that will work with most iPhone 5 covers. …

Works fine for me
I read all the reviews of this product before I bought it from the Apple store. I had a radio/speaker/dock for my iPhone 4s. When I read all the reviews of this product before I bought it from the Apple store. I had a radio/speaker/dock for my iPhone 4s. When I traded up to the iPhone 5s the converter that came with the radio allowed the speakers to work but did not recharge the phone. This converter does both and is the perfect solution for me. The nice thing is I was told I could bring it back if it didn't work. So I think the solution may come on a case by case basis. …
