    Works fine until it doesn't

    • Written by Steve M from Seattle

    Mine worked fine for 9 months, then one day stopped passing audio to the ear buds, although it continues charging. I'm trying to be fair and not penalize the product because I'm angry at the need for the product. If I wasn't such a nice, fair guy, it would get one star. But to be fair it worked as intended for 9 months which is a lot longer than some others have experienced. Occasionally there would be a charging problem that was always solved by removing and re-inserting the plug. But this new audio problem is terminal. On repeated attempts to connect, every once and a while I would get a second or two of audio before it quit. The ear buds work fine plugged directly in the phone. But then I can't charge the phone, as Apple in their infinite wisdom intends that I not do.

    It works okay, but slows down charging.

    • Written by Amanda M from Oak Park

    I've been using this regularly at my desk for almost a year now. The quality seems fine and I've had no issues with usability or sound quality. It does seem to slow down charging though. If I need to actually get some power into my phone quickly, I have to unplug this thing.

    Not worth $42

    • Written by Sarah B from altoona

    I like this adapter, but i thought when i gave 42 dollars to an adapter that Apple sells it wouldn't break easily and would be worth the money.

    Unfortunately it is big and flimsy and ends up breaking and audio / charging goes in and out from time to time after only having for almost 3 months.

    You also cannot use this adapter if you want to plug your charger and / or headphones into your computer, nor can you sync anything with this adapter.

    I think this is a good concept but should definitely be made better.

    shocking my ears

    • Written by David S from Pennsville

    So I bought this when they came out and liked it a lot. Over time I'm starting to see the complaints that others mention (working then stops recognizing connections, having to position the adapter a certain way) but I'm also noticing something else. I am getting terrible shocks from the apple earphones that came with the phone when they are plugged into the adapter. It's like having static charge and shocking yourself when it's dry and you scruff your feet on the carpet but in my ear via the head phones. Doesn't matter the device (had it just happen on a iPad mini and previously via iPhone 7). I dont know why or what's up with this being this way doesn't seem safe. Going to have to limit use going forward.
