    Stopped working for no reason

    I have this adapter and the smaller l(square with no cord) adapters. The adapter with the cord suddenly died and no longer charges the phone. Its kept in a drawer and I only use when needed' so there should be no reason why it stopped working. I have tried it with many different cables all with same result.

    The other (no cord) adapters still work even though I bought them at the same time. So I guess I'll stick with them. But I liked the corded one because it was less likely to get lost.

    It's way too SHORT!!!

    Why is there not a 0.5m or 1.0m version or what ever the normal length of the charging cables are? Its way too SHORT to be of any use! Plus it's over priced too!

    Stupidly designed by Apple in California...

    Not work on my VW 2011 Touran GT

    It can charge but no audio playback at all.

    I will exchange this one for the cord-less version which proven works on my car audio system.
    Although the cord-less Adapter's lightning plug is too large for my iPhone 5 case.

    I have to remove the case before use...

    The absolute WORST charger ever

    This is the worst charger I have EVER experienced. It seems as if it were designed to break just so I have to buy a new one every two months. The price to replace a simple charger is beyond ridiculous. Honestly, I don't have the money to keep replacing my charger over and over again. With the old charger, I never experienced so many problems, it is just with this one that I am. I am extremely disappointed in this product. Right now as I write this, my phone is completely dead because in the middle of the night my charger quit working completely, so now I have to take time out of my day to track down a way-too-expensive charger and buy yet another one.

    Terrible Charger

    I am on my 3rd iPhone 5 charger, although yes, apple has great customer service in replacing these chargers, it is a HUGE inconvenience to have to go replace a charger about every 2 months. I don't know what it is but the cord keeps "severing" and it will become very touchy in how the phony lays while it charges to all of a sudden not charging at all. Not to mention how short the cord is. In general I truly dislike this charger for the new Apple products.

    Junk

    Stops working after a few weeks of being in my car. I've been through three of these and apple wont replace them because they claim they where water damaged but they have never seen water it must be the moisture in the air but if the moisture in the air can corrode this $45 cable and render it unusable well then there is obviously a problem

    Adapters Rule! I Love This Adapter!!

    I've been buying electronic adapters since the late 60's when I was a just a kid! Because I always thought of new ways to hook up devices. Radio Shack *almost* always had the adapters I needed.

    Trust me, if you can't find the adapter you need, and no one makes it, that totally hurts.

    This product is well made, sturdy, and does the job. Yeah, $29 is better than $39; but if you can't get it anywhere else? $39 is fine with me.

    I have 3 tiny 'boomboxes' that all have that 30-pin connector. All is good now. I'm totally satisfied.

    My case on my iPhone 5 is an Otter Box Defender. Buy the best. And it has a huge, thick rubber flap that folds down, no problems with the Lightning plug.

    Good but expensive

    Use this with my Parrot MKi9200 car kit. The parrot has an older 30 pin connector to use with the older iPhones, this seems to work fine connected to the 30 pin parrot iPhone connector, having a short lead between the lightning end and the 30 pin end makes sense, especially if you have a decent cover on your iPhone 5, mine has the lifeproof case and works fine. Maybe a better item if the lead was longer than 0.2 m and was more like AUD$20.

    Frustrating in the extreme

    Dear Apple - PLEASE I beg you - SORT OUT THE WIRING ON CHARGERS AND HEADPHONES.
    I understand that generic products may not always work but the Apple ones should! My iPhone 5 charger wire stopped working a few days ago. Yesterday I was walking the dog and the Apple (came in the box) headphones were crackling and very intermittent with my new iPhone 5. In the evening I put my iPhone on charge using my very new iPad Mini charger only to see that the charge wasn't taking.

    PLEASE do something about it. All I am planning to do now is buy generic cheap ones from Amazon by the bucket load and throw them out once they stop working.

    Not good at all.

    You're gonna be able to attach to old accessories for your iPhone 4S, I didn't have any problem with the sound, what I couldn't understand is Why Apple design this cable with an thick plug!!.
    If you want to use it with a case or even a bumper, you better have an case with a big hole to connect it, or have your iPhone naked, otherwise forget about it!!!

    Deceptive

    I expected the Lightning connector end to be identical to the end available on the Lightning-to-USB cable Apple provides with new iPads and iPhones. Instead, the Lightning connector end is thicker, which means it won't fit with my phone's case. Why aren't these two connector ends identical?

    Terrible Sound reproduction

    I'm not sure if I got a lemon, but when I used this cord to dock my iphone 5 into a sound system, the results were atrocious. At first I thought my speakers were broken, but they work fine when anything is attached without the lightning-30 pin cord. I bought this 5 days ago, and I am going back to demand a refund or at least a replacement because the sound quality is so bad that it is not worth listening to.

    Works for my vehicles

    While I am not happy about the price of this cable (it is way too expensive), I am happy to report that it works to both charge the phone and to stream music, with complete control through the car stereo, when used on both my 2012 Hyundai Elantra and my 2014 Kia Sorento. I looked through a ton of these reviews without seeing either of these vehicles listed, so I was concerned about it. After arriving I am happy to report that it does work, so if you have one of these vehicles and need this cable it should be a good fit for you.

    Video and audio output do not work like iPod Classic

    WHY??? would the audio and video out functions of the iPod touch gen 5 be different than the iPod Classic? If they were...and they are...why wouldn't Apple be professional enough to tell the buyer what the new setup is?????????????
    Very, very frustrating.....

    Doesn't Work - Over Priced

    I bought this to connect my new iPhone 5, when I traded up from an iPhone 3, to my exisiting docking stations. I've tried this on two docking statings so far and the iPhone 5 with this cable hasn't worked on either station. I tried this on a Bose docking station (included with a Lifestyle system) and with an iHome clock/radio.

    Apple should include one of these with every device as we've all made investments in 30 pin cables over the years and they should maintain compability with previous versions so we don't have to go out and buy new docking stations just because Apple has a new interface.I'm losing my patience with Apple over this one. Just any way to get more money out of the consumer with no added benefit, except to Apple. The only good thing I ‘m still within the 15 day period and I can return this expensive and useless cable.

    Does the job...but

    Great idea from Apple, but it does not seem like much thought was put into it's development. The problem is that .2 meters (7.87 inches) is just not long enough. My iPod is connected via this adapter to a male 30 pin that stands maybe 3 inches tall. Picture this, the cord goes straight up and loops back down (due to how short it is). Because of this, the iPod will not even lay flat on my desk. When I attempt to lay it flat, the 30 pin tends to lift up, breaking the connection. I feel sorry for the people needing to plug their iPod into something taller. Make the cables at least 1' or 2' as these lengths are much easier to work with.
