    Apple has ruined this adapter with IOS12.

    • Written by Thomas J from Simpsonville

    I had been using his adapter to load recoded TV shows to my ipad. After the IOS12 update, this transfer no longer works. Also videos will not load from my USB 2.0 adapter either. It still works to upload photos from a SD card; however, I rarely use it for this. This adapter is now a waste of $40.

    Poor Audio Quality via Lightning Port

    • Written by Benjamin S from Mesa

    This item was purchased to use an external digital to analog converter with iOS devices. Provides sub-standard performance with professional audio interfaces and other enthusiast audio gear and isn't viable means of emulating the performance a PC or Mac with a dedicated USB port.. Such was not it's intended use, but should be noted by those expecting similar audio performance as expected from a PC or Mac with iOS devices as they will likely be underwhelmed with the audio performance via this "camera adapter".

    Does not work

    • Written by Alexander T from la mesa

    Got this hoping to be able to connect my USB drive to my ipad, but the ipad still says that the devices needs too much power, even after i connect the lighting charger to the adapter... This is no different than the old adapter.. Just more expensive..

    Its fast... for the first few images. Ports are too close! Terrible design

    • Written by RJ A from Seattle

    Great for use on the 12.9 ipad with actual usb 3 speeds but its usually only for the first 30 or so photos. I'm using a lexar 2933x XQD card along with the Lexar LRWXQDU-7000 XQD reader to transfer. The photos app reads the photos really fast so there's less wait to start transferring photos. Starting out the first 30 or so photos transfer at roughly 10 photos a second. Then it bottlenecks somewhere and transfer slows down to roughly 2-3 photos a second and then 15 or so seconds later starts to pick up again slowly getting faster but never reaches the top transfer speeds like when you started out. Sometimes found transferring photos with a slower SDXC card using the lightning to sd card reader was sometimes faster for doing a lot a photos because the transfer speed is constant.

    I also found that the ports are too close together and using many memory cards readers would block the lightning port used to power the adapter. Terrible design so sometimes you have to use some kind of extension or usb3 elbow adapter.

    Lightning port doesn't work with Apple's Lightning Headphones

    • Written by Darius W from Newton

    The lightning port doesn't work with Apple's own lightning headphones. It gives an error "This accessory is not supported by this device." I have a keyboard (music keyboard) that uses the USB portion just fine, but I cannot use headphones with it at all on my iPhone 7 plus. Bluetooth headphones have a significant delay and do not work with the keyboard. I'm left with having to listen to it out loud. Part of the reason I got the adapter was so I could play the keyboard without disturbing others. Very disappointed. The USB portion works, the lightning portion does not.

    It won’t work with anything

    • Written by Colin W from Kissmmee

    So I bought this so i could upload my photos from my dslr to Instagram and so I was so excited it had to try it so I get my hardrive to see my photos and it’s says my hardrive uses to much power so I plug the charger and it shows import in my phone but nothing loads so I put my usb stick into which uses probably little to almost no power and again import shows up and no thing ever came up I tried it a couple times and there was stuff loaded on the stick but it just won’t work so definitely gonna be returning it.

    It works-sorta

    • Written by Marke K from Ottawa

    I got this adapter to use with my iphone 7plus to backup RAW photos while off the grid. Transfer speeds with a Kingston USB 3.0 card reader are good (7minutes for 6.4GB of images) however the problem is that the adapter consistently fails to transfer all of the files on my SD cards. It is typically missing 5-10% of the files. While that's "close" it's unacceptable from a backup perspective. I can find no pattern in the files to explain this. All files are taken with the same Nikon camera in the same format and there is nothing unique about the size or other attributes of the files that are not transferred.

    If I choose delete at the end of the transfer sometimes I can re-insert the card and the files that were missed are then picked up. Other times these files continue to be invisible to the adaptor even though they are still on the card in the same directory and can be dealt with normally by other devices. I have experimented with a number of cards containing different images and the result is the same and doesn't improve even when I reduce the number of GBs of files to be transferred.

    I've spent hours troubleshooting trying to get this to work because it would be a great solution however I there isn't much point in a backup solution that is consistently unreliable so this little guy is going back.

    I might give it another shot when iOS11 rolls out and is stable but for now this device just doesn't'[t cut it.

    Brand new doesn’t work

    • Written by Jr W from Hamlet

    It never works when I hook it up to my fully updated iPhone 6s+ but when I would hook it up to my friends iPhone it would work no problem ! I know nothing is wrong with my port because it charges fine and no problems with anything else ..
