Is the cable housing on the Lightning end of this adapter small enough to use with the new Apple iPhone 5/5s leather case?
I know that the cable housing on the Lightning end of this adapter is larger than it is on Apple's standard USB to Lightning cable. I am curious if this 30-pin to Lightning adapter is still small enough to fit through the opening at the bottom of Apple's new iPhone 5/5s leather case.

No. If you force the cable housing into the case, it will snap into place. However, a small portion of the leather will get caught and flattened between the cable housing and the phone. The case isn't ruined, but it will have a cosmetic flaw. I eventually took an X-Acto knife and cut out the flap that has developed. The case isn't holding up that well anyways.
