Does what it should
Posted by: ratigator from: Michigan on
It works exactly as expected. It is smaller than I imagined it would be, which is a good thing. I don't have a case on my iPhone, so I had no fit issues. It fits perfectly on the end of the older style usb cable, and on my iHome alarm clock. Other reviewers have unfairly rated this poorly because their case gets in the way and doesn't allow the adapter to plug in. I can see why that would be annoying if you already bought a case, but case manufacturers should take this into account when building the cases. You can't expect Apple to build the adapter around any number of third-party case designs.

Does not work for video
Posted by: TheHondaman from: on
I bought this adapter expecting to use all my old iPad 2 accessories. To my dismay, I found out that you cannot use it for video output. In tiny writing on the side of the box it states that it does not support video output! This is hard to see when you are purchasing the item hoping that it will adapt all your accessories. So buyer beware!

Not a product I wanted to get, but HAD to get, because my car uses a proprietary 30-pin connector, and there were no alternatives if I wanted to use my iphone to play music through my car.
I think the price should be half what it current sells for, but as Apple has a monopoly on this lightning technology, there aren't any options.
Otherwise, product works as advertised and I can listen to music in my car again.

Works well just be careful
Posted by: Visioak from: on
If your using this with a charging station or iHome speaker be careful you don't knock the device as the small insert may snap off. Other than that great adapter.

First off this adapter is smaller than i had expected, I have a Sony Clock Radio dock and it works perfect. I also have my Iphone in an Otterbox Defender Case and at first I thought it didn't fit, but all I had to do was give alitte pressure and the adapter slid right it, it is kind of nice because the otterbox holds the adapter in very snug and I feel it is more secure, I am very please with my purchase.

Great little adapter if you need to have backward compatibility with your old 30 pin accessories and does the job. Way overprice for just a adapter

Expensive but does transmit audio
Posted by: prchord from: California on
I wanted to save money and buy a third party adapter on amazon but almost all those adapters had reviews saying it only charges but does not transmit audio. There are a few reviews that say even the apple one has problems transmitting audio. So far, this one is working perfectly with my belkin fm transmitter in my car (sound and charging).
As far as width goes, the adapter is about as wide as the diameter of the headphone jack in the bottom of the iPhone. Lengthwise, it covers. 3 of the speaker holes laterally to the lightning port. Consider this if you've got a case.
I'm glad I decided to get the apple version, it works great so far! I keep the adapter in my wallet just in case I gotta charge or connect my phone to someone else's speakers or wire.

Works fine on Sony speaker dock
Posted by: allib from: Phoenix, AZ on
I bought this to use on a Sony ICFCS15iPBLK speaker dock so we can use an Iphone 5 with it. The adapter does just what it is supposed to do and we're now back to listening to music and charging our phone.

Saves old iPhone 4 accessories!
Posted by: rangers1011 from: Denton, TX on
Not sure why others say it doesn't support iHome and other accessories. My iHome alarm clock and retractable USB for my car both worked and sounded perfect. It won't work with any cases that cover the bottom of the phone but I was able to cut and rig the bottom of my Speck case so I didn't have to remove the case every time (took two minutes and looked normal..). Wish the price was better but I'd definitely pay $29.99 to save spending another $150 on another iHome in the future..
