      Works for Nano & Bose Portable SoundDock

      I got this to continue using my Bose Portable SoundDock (2011) with a new iPod Nano (7th G). It charges the iPod, plays all audio and the dock's remote still wo I got this to continue using my Bose Portable SoundDock (2011) with a new iPod Nano (7th G). It charges the iPod, plays all audio and the dock's remote still works with this adapter to change volume, fwd/ rewind, change playlists, etc. Was the best solution in comparison to Bluetooth adapters which can't charge the iPod. I even tried an AUX cable which reduced volume to half plus the remote didn't work.

      Doesn't Work!

      Purchased this so I could use my older Bose sound docks with my newer IPod nano. It charges the iPod but the audio does not work. I get an error message that Purchased this so I could use my older Bose sound docks with my newer IPod nano. It charges the iPod but the audio does not work. I get an error message that states "unsupported, accessory is not supported." Prior to purchasing this iPod I was told this adapter would be all I need to continue to use my sounddocks. But, no, that's not the case. I can't upgrade my sound docks so they can be "supported" by Apple. I'm a retired school teacher and can't afford that. Why can't you keep this simple and easy. I'm so disappointed.

      Won't work with a case on your phone

      I too bought these in the hopes of being able to use them with the Sony Clock radios that both my wife and I have. Found out the only way they'd work is if the I too bought these in the hopes of being able to use them with the Sony Clock radios that both my wife and I have. Found out the only way they'd work is if the case is removed from the iPhone (5SE for my wife and 6S for me). I'd really like to see Apple redesign this with a longer Lightning connector and perhaps two or three spacers of various thicknesses. That way, the length of the Lightning connector could be customized by the user by the appropriate selection of spacers and would allow this to be used with any number of cases or without a case entirely.

      Only a ~2 YEAR~ shelf life? Apple, plz check on any pin-durability issues

      This wouldn't be too bad if this thing was like $10 - $15. But for over $30 bucks with tax it should at least last 4-5 years. I use it with my wired car-to-ph This wouldn't be too bad if this thing was like $10 - $15. But for over $30 bucks with tax it should at least last 4-5 years. I use it with my wired car-to-phone adapter in order to listen to app music, YT, etc. (there's no comparison between wireless audio and wired audio, wired wins hands-down). I keep having to buy a new one of these every 2 years. I'm always careful with it and never leave it out in the sun or anything so I don't know what's going on. From now on I guess I'll have to take it out of the car just to be sure it's not from residual heat. Apple, please check on any durability issues with the pins on both sides.

      30 pin to lightening adapter

      Should have read the reviews BEFORE purchasing. It does not work with when using a Lifeproof case. On the upside, returning it so far was easy.

      Failure with 2 devices

      Did not work with the slim case on my iPod touch or my Otterbox Strada case on my iPhone. It seems like the lightening cord would work if you removed the case.
