      Faulty after 2-3 weeks

      I bought this item as I didn't think Apple would allow a poor product to be sold by them even though as a rule I never buy Belkin products due to their general I bought this item as I didn't think Apple would allow a poor product to be sold by them even though as a rule I never buy Belkin products due to their general poor quality. Sadly after 2-3 weeks the adapter developed a fault where it cut out when it was moved even very slightly and this was both for sound and charging. Spoke to Apple and as usual the customer service has been fantastic, they are sending a replace and I can only hope this one doesn't fail. Be aware because I wasn't when I bought it and subsequently found there are been similar issues in the US see reviews on the US store. This is a smalll adapter being sold at a very high price and I expect it to be of quality and fit for purpose.

      Breaks data connectivity via USB cable (known problem)

      Yes, you can charge and use audio (phone calls and music) at the same time, but the item's description misleadingly omits to mention that it breaks data connect Yes, you can charge and use audio (phone calls and music) at the same time, but the item's description misleadingly omits to mention that it breaks data connectivity between the iOS device and the USB device that is providing the charge. Therefore while you speak or listen, you do get power, but you can't synchronise the iOS device with iTunes on a PC and the PC can't access any photos in the camera roll. This limitation makes it extremely poor value for money. For this price, I would expect everything to work properly without any limitations or interruptions to existing data connectivity via the USB cable.

      No data

      As another reviewer mentions, this extremely overpriced product does not work with data, only audio and charging. Which basically makes it completely useless to As another reviewer mentions, this extremely overpriced product does not work with data, only audio and charging. Which basically makes it completely useless to me. While this may be a restriction of Lightning and/or the MFi programme, it should be made explicit that the audio adapter gets first dibs on the data channel. Mentioning power pass-through isn't enough.

I have only used it a few times and it worked perfectly but now every time I try to use it it does not work! Whenever I attempt to use this device a message comes up saying 'this accessory device may not be supported'. I bought this overpriced produced from the apple website thinking that as apple advertise it, I could trust it. I'm very disappointed and wish I did not waste my money on this product.
