30-Pin To Lightning Adapter With micro-USB Port For Apple Devices
4 Stars based on 67 Review(s)
Works well enough, not 100% compatible with older 30-pin docks/car-stereos
December 3, 2013
Overall I'm pleased with the adapter. I'm able to charge without a problem. I can also sync to the computer using the adapter. The car stereos in our 2012 Prius and 2011 Mini Countryman work just fine with the adapter. Audio plays through without a problem and full browsing of the phone's music library & playlists works just fine. However, this adapter doesn't work with the GTA Carkit iPod interface kit that we have in our minivan. The official Apple adapter does work with the GTA Carkit so there's clearly a compatibility issue, but it's a minor one at best. Since we always use an old iPod in the minivan with the GTA Carkit, we haven't had a real need to use the iPhone 5s in the minivan. I have not tested any speaker docks, or home stereo interfaces with the adapter.
Pros:
Price and versatility of the additional micro-usb plug.
Cons:
Pop-up warning message on the phone about it being unsupported. Fit and finish is a little rough, but otherwise works.

Good deal!
November 13, 2013
Got an Iphone 5S and needed to connect to various 30-pin cables and devices. This does the trick.
Pros:
Simple to use, works well. Also adds a 6" extension to my 30-pin cables. Great value.
Cons:
Probably not the fault of the item, but an FM transmitter device I have does not work with the adaptor. Probably an IOS7 issue. The charging function works, but no FM broadcast of the audio. Also, none of my micro-usb cables seem to fit the auxiliary jack. Not really necessary.

Works fine, but its not an Apple licenced item
November 12, 2013
Got the job done for me - it lets me use the older "apple" cords to charge the new phone. But since apple has that license thing, every time I plug it in i get a warning message. And it won't work at all in some of the smart devices.

Works Most of the Time, but...
November 12, 2013
I have the iPhone 5S for Verizon and the charger works most of the time, even though it realizes that it is not an OEM product. Occasionally, it won't charge when it is plugged in, but it doesn't happen often. Overall, it is a much better value than paying full price for the real deal.

Good for charging, not much else
November 12, 2013
I have a bunch of 30-pin devices (sound bar, alarm clock, cable for car stereo) and I was hoping this adapter would let me plug my new iPhone 5s into the existing devices. It does not. I CAN sync with iTunes on my PC. and I can use a micro-USB charger to charge my iPhone. But the sound bar and alarm clock would not recognize the iPhone 5s when connected with this adapter.
Pros:
near universal charging for Lightning device
Cons:
Does not provide 100% backwards compatibility with 30-pin devices

They work
November 11, 2013
Although not as sturdy as an Apple cable, and do indicate when being used that they aren't Apple made and might not work, they do work. At the price, you can't go wrong. Even the fact that they are a little too tight when plugged in and need a little care in removing, they are still a great bargain. I would have given them 5 stars had they not been such a tight fit I pulled the plug end cover off the first one I tried but learned to be more careful after that. All 4 work.
Pros:
They work and cost can't be beat.
Cons:
Could fit less tight and plug cover could be more durable.

Lightning adaptor
October 30, 2013
I had a desk charger for my old iphone 3 model and plugged the Lightning adapter into it and am able to plug my new 5C into the micro port and use the stand by placing the phone on it side in the stand. It works great. I am very satisfied with it and can still use the old stand without having to buy a new one.

Much cheaper than a new iPhone cable
October 28, 2013
We got new iPhones with the "Lightning connectors" and traded in our old iPhones. We had the old phone's cables, but nothing to use them with. By getting this adapter (2 of them), we now have extra charging cables to keep in our cars. Price was incredible; in stores a new cable costs $19-$29.
Pros:
Allows us to make obsolete cables useful again.

The adapter seems to work fine for charging and syncing, but you can't use this type of adapter if you want to play audio, such as connecting your ipod or iphone to your car stereo.

Like the addition of the mini USB for charging!
Cons:
No audio connection (yes, I probably shouldn't have expected it).

Excellent value
October 13, 2013
It works fine for charging from an older charging device, but since it's not an Apple-authorized 'Lightning' cable, a message comes on the iPhone/iPad screen saying 'it may or may not work'. And I would recommend using the cable that came with the iPhone or iPad for backing up to your computer, because it really 'may not work' for backup. But the price, for a charging cable adapter, can't be beat.

a handy device
August 21, 2013
I have a lot of old Apple charging cables, but, alas, they don't work for my new iPhone 5. This little converter allows the use of old cables with new phones, helping to minimize the number of chargers taken on trips and lying around the house. I have not assessed longevity of the product...so gave it a 4 until I see how well it holds up. Good purchase for households with multiple Apple devices. Helps to have with me when I need to charge my phone but only have the old cables available.
Pros:
small, light, versatile, and bridges the tech changes with the smaller charging slot on the new phones
Cons:
I am annoyed that the new device is needed at all...not the device's fault, but Apple should not have different charging ports.
