    Does the Job.

    Works perfectly and is the only way to connect to the old ipod docks.

    Returning it

    Agree with everyone. Not a good product if you have a case. I also have a speck. What a rip off. Great idea though.

    So versatile

    Very cool product.
    Bought one of these a while ago and I use it everywhere. Instead of lugging your charger with you to friends houses, you can use this along with their iPhone 4 charger to charge if need be.

    Connects up to the existing car setup, which originally was for the iPhone 4. Works perfectly. I have been reading the reviews on the cases and I have a slim belkin case and have had no dramas connecting it up to that with the case being in the way.

    The lightning connector was far too loose on the iPhone5. It would not seat into the phone. Basically, it was defective. I am returning it ASAP.

    Charges BUT NOTHING ELSE!!!

    This adapter is totally useless. I brought it because apple told me that it would support audio and allow me to continue using my previous docking station, however, I found that when connecting my ipod 5th generation to my ipig docking station the only thing it would do was charge my ipod. Therefore, audio is not compatible and the adapter is totally useless. Also, the connector is very weak and flimsy, i did not trust it enough take my hand from behind my ipod for fear of it falling off. Pointless product!

    Does not work with B&W Zeppelin mini

    I bought this, so I could continue using my Zeppelin mini iPhone dock. It does not however work like it says. It charges the iPhone, but the audio doesn't go through the adaptor. It just plays through the iPhone speakers. Really a shame, since my pretty expensive dock is under 1 year old.

    Lightning to 30-pin Adapter

    Waste of Money, it does not work with my Sony docking station stereo. Lastly get a cable to hooking it up? To be quite honest, looks pretty tacky. Not fan of the "New Lightning." Getting tired of Apple now.

    Lightning to 30-pin Adaptor

    Don't get it. I bought an iPad mini for my videos and got the adaptor to view my videos. Got it at an Apple store where they told me it would work with my videos. Big disappointment!!! Will be visiting Apple.

    Returning! Waste of Money!

    As the title suggests, I am returning this product. I have a slim fit Speck case, and it doesn't work at all with it on it. I'm incredibly disappointed as it would have been nice to be able to use the speaker dock gift my brother got me for the holiday with my phone. Had I realized that I would have so much trouble with finding adaptable products for the new iPhone, I would have gotten the older version. I am floored that Apple would create a new product with such a poorly designed adapter. What a disappointment.

    works perfectly, stop complaining

    This product works exactly as it says it will. It allows for 30pin connections to be used with a lightning iDevice.

    Please stop complaining that it doesn't do the following - It's not meant to!

    No, it doesn't support video, you need new adaptors for that

    It is not designed to be plugging into docks, it's designed for cables to be plugged into it

    It's not designed to be used with a case on your phone, but a case is YOUR choice, not Apple's, so is designed perfectly to be used with your iphone.
    (admittedly Apple could have got it better for use with Nano's)

    Lightning connector is reversible, so can not be back to front, try turning your phone round if you have this problem of not being able to see your screen with it plugged in!

    No video support!
    In the presentation of the iPhone 5, no one mentioned that the adapter was not supporting video. So i bought it and found out that it can not support video.

    not work with Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter

    It's supposed to be work with most Apple Genuine product.
    No it's doesn't.
    I connect to Apple 30-pin Digital AV Adapter which I bought for iPhone 4S,"Apple does not support this product" shown on iPhone 5 Screen and can't connect to TV via HDMI Cable.
    When I went to apple store and chat with their employees, they suggest me to buy new iPhone5 Lightning Digital AV Adapter for $59.
    It's only work when you charge with old 30-pin cable to iPhone 5.
    Why apple did not clearly indicate their adapter will not work on all of their own product?

    Only works with device facing backwards. Doesn't allow charging.

    My stepmother and I both have the same problem with this. She has an iPhone 4s and I have a 7th-generation iPod nano. With two different adapters and two different Bose docking systems, we each can only reliably get this to work with our devices facing backwards! Occasionally, if we're lucky, it will work for a while with the device facing forward. It's weird, because I thought the great thing about the lightning adapter was that it was symmetrical. For the price, I'd hoped this would work right.

    Further, the Bose docking station will not charge our devices using this adapter. Geez, Apple! Whatever happened to "it just works"?

    Like what was mentioned in the earlier reviews here, it won't work with any type of Iphone case. Also the worst part is, it has compatibility issues with my JBL Onbeat Xtreme and Harman Kardon Go+Play II. So now, the only way for me to play them is through Aux cable or bluetooth.... I wasted money here......

    iPhone 5 connector

    I bought the Lighting to 30 pin Adapter from my Apple Store after buying 2 other connectors via Amazon. Although both of the Amazon supplied connectors support battery charging neither would enable me to connect to to the 30 pin connector and play audio into the car system. The Apple connector worked first time.

    So although the other connectors were individually cheaper I paid more in total than the one Apple connector. My guess is that the Apple connector contains the necessary circuitry whereas the cheaper versions do not. Whatever the reason I wish that I had bought the Apple connector first. It does what it says it does.

    Too over priced.

    Okay so, I was hoping that these would be around the $20 mark, when I saw that it was $50, I almost had a fit, these things are no less than $10 to make and charging people an extra $40 is just a rip off, I mean, c'mon apple, you need to lower the price of these products, all it is, is an adapter, not an iPhone. I mean, you's are almost a trillion dollar company, and I can see where all your money is coming from. People who desperately need these things have to fork out all this money and all they are getting is a little adapter, I mean, they aren't that exciting.

    Over priced

    Way over priced and doesn't fit the iphone with most phone covers. Completely annoying that you have to pay extra for this connecter, it should be packed in with the device.
