    Didn't last long

    Bought as Christmas gift, has had some light use and 4 weeks later it has stopped working. Disappointing as I bought from Apple to ensure the quality.

    It hates the cold!

    I bought this product to use in my car so that I could both charge my phone and play audio using the 3.5mm audio line-in jack to my stereo. I didn't want to purchase just any adapter, so I thought I could rely on one sold through the Apple Store.

    Initially, the Belkin 3.5mm Audio + Charge Rockstar worked perfectly, and I was very pleased with its functionality. However, I discovered that it has a major reliability problem when the weather is cold (I am in Ontario, Canada, and encounter the problem whenever it is -5 and below in Celsius). When the Belkin Rockstar is cold, and until the car interior heats up and warms the device, the audio cuts out and the phone acts as though the 3.5mm jack has been removed. Sometimes the charging also fails to register on account of the cold. Removing and reconnecting the 3.5mm jack or the Lightning cable only causes the problem to repeat.

    This is a really frustrating problem and it takes a lot of enjoyment out of my drives, since I cannot enjoy my music and podcasts for relatively short drives, and it is inconvenient and even slightly dangerous to attempt to disconnect and reconnect cables once I am driving and the car has had a chance to warm up. I like the device -- when it works -- but I wouldn't recommend it.

    Want my money back

    Bought 2. Both failed quickly. Nothing like audio kicking to live iPhone audio at night while the wife is sleeping.

    Both worked for a little while. Worse than worthless now. Thanks Belkin.

    Absolutely terrible

    Ordered this charger through the Apple Store, received it, and it didn't work out of the box. I too have an older phone, and my headphones all have 3.5mm cables, which I had hoped this would be useful for. I attempted to use the standard Apple 3.5mm earbuds thinking it was my Bose headphones, but neither worked. Imagine my surprise that on the same day I unboxed this adapter, I was not able to return it through the Apple Store. Very disappointing and a huge waste of $$, never again.

    Worthless Product, Doesn't Work

    Would give 0 stars if I could. While it was frustrating enough to purchase similar, cheaper products that weren't Apple approved and have them not work properly or break easily, it was truly infuriating to spend $35 on this product in Apple's own store and have it NOT WORK STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. How is it possible that they've designed a phone that's not actually practical to use as a phone?! I use my phone to make a lot of conference and work related calls throughout the day so it dies all the time because I have to choose between using headphones or charging. It's ridiculous that I can't charge my phone and use headphones at the same time (unless I buy wireless headphones which drain battery faster than the old audio jack headphones). Or heaven forbid you travel and are frequently on a plane ride over two hours because you'll have to choose between using headphones for in-flight entertainment or charging your phone. And no, I don't think I should have to blow $350 to buy new wireless noise-cancelling headphones when I already have a great Bose set just because the one I have requires an audio jack in the phone. Apple, if you're going to make stupid changes to all your new phones, the very least you could do is make your overpriced accessories (that are now necessary to make the phone function for everyday use) in such a way that they actually work. Because all I accomplished with this purchase was a long return process to waste my time.

    Works well with iPhone X

    Works as intended, only early days but a great solution.

    Broke after three days

    I rarely write reviews. Had the adapter for three days and then stopped working. I think wires broke just before lightening adapter. Wrote belkin-they did nothing. I bought in apple store but live to far away to be worth returning the product.

    Shocking Problem

    Pricey for what it is. Works fine in my Jeep since the iPhone does not work well with the UConnect system. Biggest problem I have with this charger is that I get shocked when using it with earbuds at my desk. Feels like bee stings in my ears. Earbuds are fine when not running through this charger.

    I've been through 4 of these in a year. The charger constantly goes out. For $40, I feel like it should definitely work for longer than a couple of months. Unfortunately this is the only option available so I just have to keep buying them

    Broken/Doesn’t Work Properly

    I bought this along with my iPhone 8 because my favorite pair of headphones have a jack, but if I move it when I’m using it, the sound in the headphones cuts out completely and the phone stops charging. I tried with multiple headphones to see if they were the problem and not the adapter but it is 100% the adapter. I will be taking this back.

    Great, while it worked

    when I initially got this I was very pleased that I finally found a product that worked for this purpose. However, after a month of very gentle use, the cable no longer works and audio cuts out and it makes a staticy noise when it does produce audio

    Great Product, Possible Quality Control Issues?

    The first one I bought didn't work and was a defective unit. Got it exchanged at the Apple Store and the new one works perfectly!!

    This is designed to do exactly what I have wanted since the iPhone 7 came out!
