    Good but not for all

    I bought this to use as a connector for my phone to docking station. I have an iphone 7plus so it's sizeable and weighty. Whilst it worked in the station and music played fine and it charged, due to the weight of the phone it did not sit right and was quite slanted and looked like it could topple over at any stage! I've now returned for the connector with a lead. So if you have the plus size - get the other Lightning adapter with the lead - much more suitable!

    Adapter on a Ruarkaudio 4i

    Moving from an older iPhone to iPhone5 has meant that I could not use the Ruarkaudio's dock. This lack became increasingly annoying therefore I looked into the options for connectivity using some sort of adapter. Obviously, I read the reviews posted here and was very worried about whether the Lightening adapter would work - it's rather expensive. I asked Ruark's advice service and was told the genuine Apple Lightening adapter worked fine, with the adapter-support available from Proporta. I can report that the four products, now mutually connectable, work in perfect harmony.

    Very useful in transition from older to new style cable

    I got this back when I first got a iPhone 5 moving on from older style, I still use the older style for my older Ipad 3g for useful at the start.

    Less used now but still glad I had it was very handy.

    Now have loads of the newer cables as they come with any new iPhones / iPads so don't find I use the older one as much.

    Help !

    After reading some of the reviews, about this product. I bought two, (very cheaply from ebay!) however when I plugged in iphone 5 nothing happened, ebay sent another, incase it was faulty, but it still didn't work. So I have just purchased a new speaker docking station which is for ipads, iphones and ipods, but still no music comes from the docking station ? (trying all 3 adapters) I'm wondering why it works for some and not others ? Have resorted to the standard 3.5mm jack cable, but would be nice to use the docking station as is intended. Pls Help !!

    Good value for what it does

    Very neat converter that contains a lot more than people think, hence the moans about poor value.
    This device includes all the electronics to work out what the original 30 pin plug is doing and pass the correct commands up through the new 8 pin plug regardless of which way round it is plugged in.
    There are some compatibility problems with older 30 pin products apparently, but I have not experienced this yet.
    Overall it works very well.

    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!
