    Doesn't play music

    If you're buying this to play your music through an ipod dock - DON'T. It will charge your ipod, but you will not be able to play any of the music. Total rip off. VERY unsatisfied.

    Not happy!

    I bought this because i wanted to listen to my music on my docking station, as the connection holes are different i needed to buy this, so i did and although it charges my ipod it doesn't play music through the speakers. I am disgusted especially because of the price of it!

    Works but I feel ripped off!

    It works when Iphone has no case. Why not add to the design that the pin can be pushed out more? And why does it not come with the already expensive phone. OR be at a basic token price. It's you that changed the plug design Apple so don't penalise the first users of the very expensive product we've all bought into. It can't possibly cost this much to produce.

    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.

    Thunderbolt - a new band waggon for a new accessories industry

    I'll try to be objective...I upgraded my iPhone 4 to a 5 and my iPad 3 to a 4 ..I like to keep up with the latest technology so I knew that I'd have to buy one (actually 2 because my wife needed one for her iPhone 5 too) of these adaptor widgets to be able to connect my phone to my Bose Sound System..and my Roberts DAB Clock Radio dock...and any number of my " i-Life" accessories that I have acquired over my years as an apple devotee.

    Well...

    The thunderbolt connector is very flimsy and does not reassuringly support the weight of the iPhone so without risking my new adoptor snapping in two..its pretty useless for connecting my iPhone 5 to any docking station in the origianlly intended/designed manner.

    It also won't work with my Griffin iPhone case fitted....the case doesn't allow the adaptor to seat properly in any dock...maybe a fault of the case...but for the sake of a an extra mm on the adaptor length it would have at least seated properly (before snapping under the weight of the iPhone!)

    Mine is heading for eBay..the only realistic solution is a new case and new docking station and new alarm clock when someone eventually releases one with the appropriate adaptor.

    The new thunderbolt connector isn't just a connector its a whole new band waggon for a whole new accessories industry!!!

    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!

    Cannot use with a case

    Very surprised at Apple's poor design of this essential connector that doesnt fit when iPhone 5 has a case on. It's an expensive piece of kit that doesnt really work - who wants to remove the phone case to attach the connector to your iPhone accessories!

    Works but....

    Although pricey it does work, but with a Bose Soundock II it only works if the iPod is mounted back to front with the display hidden. The adapter can only go on the 30 pin connector on the docking station one way. As far as I know the lightning connector can be plugged in either way round, but with the iPod mounted on the adapter with the display facing forward it will not work, no sound, no track change, nothing. Flip the iPod round so the display faces the docking station and it works fine if impractical. Others have reported the same thing.

    Works ..... but ....

    Come on Apple, a bit more thought on this one please. Ipod Nano 7G has the Lightning port right over on the right hand side. when you plug in the adapter to use in a dock it just looks .... rubbish. Ipod hangs off the side of the adapter. If you are going to force buyers to use an adapter that you sell for £25 at least make it a dedicated fit. it's probably fine for the iPhone 5 and the iPod Touch 5 but it doesnt work aesthetically for the the Nano 7G. Sloppy

    Ripoff

    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.

    New adaptor

    I've just gone out & bought the new iPod nano & adaptor so I can use it on my docking stations around the house. Why oh why have Apple put the adaptor to the right on the nano? When I got items home & put them on my docking station the nano no longer sits centrally, it's offset to the left. It looks ridiculous & to be fair unsightly to look at. Had I known this before hand I would have got a classic that doesn't require new adaptor.

    What a rip off!

    Poor show, Apple - after 20 years loyalty to your products, I was very disappointed when you decided to change the connection with the advent of iPhone 5, making it incompatible with my expensive Bose sound dock. Then you offer your customers this extremely poorly designed adaptor at a ridiculously high price. Stop taking us for granted.

    poor design for music output

    Doesnt work in my 2012 Mercedes, my Yamaha DAB, my Onkyo docking port or my Ruark DAB - so that is every device I have - £25 for a power converter and I purchased 2 before I found out...

    Not worth it

    This is a big waste of money. Would not work on my car stereo. When put into a docking station it will play music through but will not charge. So its cheaper to buy a 3.5mm cable to play your music

    Didnt do what I was told it would - useless

    I bought one of these very expensive adapters for my Ipad as I already had a 30pin VGA adapter. I specifically asked the guy that sold me it if it would work for video and he told me it would - well guess what - it does not.
    Unfortunately I bought it at Barcelona Airport on my way home so no chance to return it. No use to me at all!
