Can I use Lightning to 30-pin Adapter + 30-pin to VGA Adapter to connect iPad mini with my projector?

I already have 30-pin to VGA Adapter that can properly display iPhone 4s screen on projector. I'm deciding to buy iPad mini with an adapter between Lightning to 30-pin Adapter or Lightning to VGA Adapter. Which one should I buy?

I think Lightning to 30-pin Adapter is multi-purpose adapter but I'm not sure that will it work properly if I connect like this?

    No, you can't use the 30-pin to VGA in conjunction with the 30-pin to lightning to get around buying the new VGA to lightning ...Boo! Sadly no one at the Apple Store seemed to know this (and they didn't have the new one in stock)...I should have checked this forum first! Off to another Apple store...

  • No. It doesn't work. You have to buy the new adaptor unfortunately.

  • I would go with a new adaptor. The less in between connections from front to back will preserve your signal strength and is one less place for connection to fail. I am not sure how the 30 pin connector is wired, it might not match up when you connect the ends but with the lightning to VGA at least you can be assured the wiring will function correctly.
