    Exactly what I wanted and needed

    I wanted something to connect to my car stereo via my old apple 30 pin connector. The old 30 pin connector played audio and charged. I had tried connecting the USB to lightning and audio cables separately, and while audio played, it didn't charge. So, with this, I'm able to use the old connector and get my phone charged and play music at the same time. It really is a short cable. The other reviews aren't kidding about that. But w/ my previous connector cable, it actually extends that cable nicely so that I have room to pick up the phone to answer and talk if need be w/o disconnecting. AS THE ITEM NOTES - It does NOT play video among other things. It's just for charging and audio. That's it. Oh, and I have an Otterbox Defender series case, and the cord fit fine even with that case. Part of the reason I paid the $10 more for this, is that the phone connection is the same as the Lightning Cord, or very close to it. Where the "normal" adaptor fits tightly to the phone, so you're NOT able to have a case on the phone.

    If you are getting this adapter for the cord extension as I did, well be ready to have a REALLY short extension. I think that is why Apple does not show the whole cord on the front of the box because they knew we all would buy the $29 version instead of the $39 one. It is not worth the $10 more!! I connected it to the dock in my car and it was too short for my phone to sit up from top to bottom or even to lay down on its back. If you are using SIRI it is somewhat OK because she can do most of the things for you but we all know SIRI can't do everything for us. There are those times when you have to pick up the phone and that is when you run into the problem of not having enough cord to reach from the 30 pin dock to you. I mean don't get me wrong, it works but for $10 more, the cord should be at least the same size as the charging cord. And WHY don't they have any adaptors available? They knew the demand would be high seeing that almost everyone in the world has a iPhone or iPod which means they will be connecting it to their older accessories. I'm just saying!!

    Just what I needed

    It's as described. I have a dock connection cable for my car stereo. The adapter keeps all the functionality I had before (charge, transfer audio out from ipod or pandora). Some have complained that the lightning connection on this adapter is larger than the standard issue usb cable that comes with new iphone/ipod. This is true. I have a speck candyshell style case and have NO issues with the larger connection, but I can see where this could cause a problem with some cases. The cable itself is only about 8 inches long. So if you're thinking this cable adapter is going to substitute as an extension as well you will most likely be disappointed. The description under specs says that the cable doesn't support ipod out. I'm not sure exactly what this means. As stated before my music app on my phone functions as normal with this adapter. So I'm thinking ipod out function must be specific to ipods. The price could be more reasonable, but I had enough rewardzone points saved up to cover the purchase so it didn't sting quite as bad.

    The Cable for all of us stuck with 30 pin docks.

    So you upgraded your pre-iPhone 5 whatever / last gen ipod to the latest and greatest Apple release? But now you have stereo docks, and charger docks with 30 pins that are attractive paperweights, and incompatible with your super cool lightening based iPhone/iPod. Unless they have blutetooth capability built in, you won't be hearing any music now either. Well this bundle of joy fixes all that, in a wonderfully inelegant way. Just pop this onto the 30 pin plug on your docks, or on the end of your usb 30 pin charger cables, and you have this dangling cable to plug your new phones into to charge them and/or transmit your music to your stereos. It worked on my Pioneer stereo dock/ and my Bose too, more importantly it worked in my '08 Nissan's built in ipod charger cable as well. Of course now I have a black cable with an 8 inch white cable attached at the end, but it works. So unless you plan to upgrade all your chargers and cables, you can use this to make those 30 pin docks' lifespan last a little bit longer. I can't speak to the durability test, since i have only owned it for a few months, but it appears to be holding up well.

    Much more useful than Lightning/30 pin adapter

    Apple makes two Lightning to 30 pin adapters. The small one (without any cable) is less expensive, so I purchased a couple instead of the more expensive adapter cable. Nobody in my family (many iDevices) has ever been able to use the small adapters, however, because the Lightning "tongue" does not extend long enough to make a secure connection when the iPhone or iPad is protected by a case or sleeve. The adapter cable is very short, just long enough to let the connected iPhone or iPad lie on the console in my car or on top of the iHome music player. The Lightning to 30 pin adapter cable solves the adapting & connecting problem perfectly because the Lightning plug is small enough to fit through the openings in the iPhone and iPad cases. Using the adapter cable, I can connect my iPhone to my car's audio system (both charging and playing music), and use it with my iHome music player (both charging and playing music). I have purchased an adapter cable for every car & iHome music player in the house. They store easily in my car when not being used.

    Works great with my auto charge and sync cable

    I have an iSimple Gateway sync and charge cable in my 04 Accord which became obsolete once I upgraded from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 6 since the newer phones no longer use the 30 pin connection. They also don't offer a lightning version for my vehicle so I couldn't replace it. I bought this product to keep me from throwing out the iSimple cable and thus having to use separate aux and charge cables in my car and so far it was worked great. My only complaint and the reason I didn't rate 5 stars is that every once in a while I lose the sync and it switches to the fm radio on its own. It only happens once every few days but its no big deal as pressing the aux button again fixes the issue. I understand the problem could be with my stock radio but I don't have any other devices at home to test for this issue. This is still an awesome product and would recommend it to others.

    Honestly usage is a 4 because what more do you want? It's name says it all, use a 30 pin cable with your lightning port it doesn't blow you away with faster transfer speeds or better music quality it's just an adapter. 2 stars because in 1 year this is my 2nd adapter... living in the south I get it our summers get hot, but my first cable was heated up so much and used so much with bending it basically tore where about 99% of failing lightning cables fail at, the point on the cable before the wires connect to board of the connector. At the price of near $50 I could pick up an original apple lightning cable + an aux cable that does basically the same thing AND have money left for lunch. But unfortunately for me, I'm a sucker for steering wheel controls + song title display in the car.

    Complete and Total Waste of Money

    Like many people with an iPhone, I have many accessories including an iHome alarm clock, old 30 pin cables from previous phones and ipods, and most important to me - my HDMI adapter. I travel a lot and I keep my HDMI adpater and an HDMI cable in my laptop bag so I can watch media and Netflix on my hotel room tv. This adapter supports none of the above. I can't control the music from my alarm clock, and I can't output video. All this thing does is convert an old 30 pin cable into the cable that came with your iPhone 5, and adds an extras 8" inches of legnth. For $20 less you can just buy a lightning to USB cable. This adpater is simply a ripoff. Don't waste your time or money. The only value this cable has is that it adds 8" to your existing 30 pin cable. I returned this and bought 2 lightning to usb cables for the same price.
