All original Apple Chargers come without charging cables. So if you have an old but "original" Apple charger that definitely has an USB type output port, you can use either the old 30-pin docking type cable (other end is USB) or the new Lightning cable (other end is USB) with the aforementioned original Apple chargers. What counts is the power rating of the charger versus the Apple hardware you want to charge. However some new Apple models (such as iPhone 5, iPod Touch/5G, iPod Nano/7G, iPad Mini and iPad 4th Generation) carry the new Lightning connector and you definitely need to use an original Apple cable (USB to Lightning) bcz. this is a "chipped" cable and ordinary 3rd party cables mostly will (should) not work!... This Lightning to 30-pin Adapter is also "chipped", so you can connect either an original Apple (USB to 30-pin) cable, or some other 3rd party (OEM) USB to 30-pin cable, or say a charger having a fixed cable (with he 30-pin socket at the output) to this adapter to charge your iPad Mini. No sweat!...
