      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). Since EVERYONE has a case, I am 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). Since EVERYONE has a case, I am confused as to why Apple would make this product, or not even warn you that it does not plug in when a case is on your phone. The cord adaptor is a bit more expensive, but at least you won't ruin your case by having to continually put it on and off to use the adaptor.

      Will not work if your iPhone 5 has any kind of cover

      The length of the lightning adapter is too short if you have any kind of cover with your iPhone 5. I have an Apple-like bumper cover (similar to iPhone 4/4S) an The length of the lightning adapter is too short if you have any kind of cover with your iPhone 5. I have an Apple-like bumper cover (similar to iPhone 4/4S) and the metal contact on the adapter is WAY TOO short. I suggest getting the Lighting to 30-pin Adapter Cable instead. The cable has a thin longer Lightning connection that will work with most iPhone 5 covers.

      Useful but expensive

      It seems to be a useful adapter to have, but for it to cost £25.00? Seems a bit of a rip off to me...

      Works for Nano & Bose Portable SoundDock

It charges the iPod, plays all audio and the dock's remote still works with this adapter to change volume, fwd/ rewind, change playlists, etc. Was the best solution in comparison to Bluetooth adapters which can't charge the iPod. I even tried an AUX cable which reduced volume to half plus the remote didn't work.

      Won't work with a case on your phone

      I too bought these in the hopes of being able to use them with the Sony Clock radios that both my wife and I have. Found out the only way they'd work is if the I too bought these in the hopes of being able to use them with the Sony Clock radios that both my wife and I have. Found out the only way they'd work is if the case is removed from the iPhone (5SE for my wife and 6S for me). I'd really like to see Apple redesign this with a longer Lightning connector and perhaps two or three spacers of various thicknesses. That way, the length of the Lightning connector could be customized by the user by the appropriate selection of spacers and would allow this to be used with any number of cases or without a case entirely.

      Doesn't Work!

      Purchased this so I could use my older Bose sound docks with my newer IPod nano. It charges the iPod but the audio does not work. I get an error message that Purchased this so I could use my older Bose sound docks with my newer IPod nano. It charges the iPod but the audio does not work. I get an error message that states "unsupported, accessory is not supported." Prior to purchasing this iPod I was told this adapter would be all I need to continue to use my sounddocks. But, no, that's not the case. I can't upgrade my sound docks so they can be "supported" by Apple. I'm a retired school teacher and can't afford that. Why can't you keep this simple and easy. I'm so disappointed.
