A few Christmas' ago my husband bought me a travel iHome that I loved. We spend a lot of time outdoors and camping and this little thing was perfect. Except for it was a 30 pin. I had been ready for an upgrade but didn't want to lose my beloved iHome. Time finally took its toll and I upgraded to an iPhone 5c and found this little adapter to use with my iHome. At first I was worried because it makes my phone sit up a little high. But after using it I found it still charges my phone fine and my music still sounds great. And my phone has never fell off its new perch.

I already own an iPad with a Lightning connector and had the adapter with a cord for my iHome iPad speaker dock and figured it was time to get the mini one so I could actually stand my new iPhone on my iHome clock radio. Its small and does exactly what its advertised (make sure to read the specs, its doesn't support video out, so it won't work with any HDTV or HDMI 30 pin adapter).
The big problem is it won't work if you have any type of normal sized or larger case. There are a few rare instances where slim cases or cases that don't cover the bottom of the phone(like wrap around the sides of the phone only) will work. But in most cases, including the official Apple leather case (iPhone 5S), it doesn't work. This is due to the lightning "prong" that inserts into the phone just extends out from the wide body of the adapter (30 pin width), and most cases only have an opening slightly larger than the actual opening on the phone. The opening in the case where the lightning port is would have to be the same width/size as a 30 pin port for this adapter to work.
All this said, its great, if you don't have a case. If you do have a case then you have to get the adapter that has the short cable on it.
My big beef with apple and most websites that sell it is that they don't advertise this in the product description or specs. There are tons of reviews (including mine) that point out the issues, but since I figured "apple always thinks of everything" so I didn't even read the reviews, just bought it. Staples and Apple would do well to include this info!

works like it should

Comments about Apple® Lightning™ to 30-pin Adapter:

The adapter allows me to connect my iPhone directly to the cradle of the music player and the phone is charged at the same time.

I thought the item was very pricey. I mean, I know that it is an apple product & all, but does everything apple have to be so expensive??

Does the job

Comments about Apple® Lightning™ to 30-pin Adapter:

I was really excited to find this product. I have all of these cords from my old iPad and iPhone and really didn't want to have to buy another cord or have to remember to bring my mini cord from home with me everywhere I go. It basically converts your current cord by attaching to it. The only thing I didn't like about it is that the lightening piece is much shorter than the one on the lightening cord. So if you want to charge your iPhone 5 or iPad mini, it can't be in a case. Small annoyance-didn't really make sense why they would not just make it the same size.

Prefect for an older iPod - that only plays iTune downloads. Do not need to upgrade for a Nano - would never use all the apps that come with it and watch movies????

Apple 30-pin Adapter doesn't fit!

By D. Ward

from Springfield, MO

Verified Buyer

Comments about Apple® Lightning™ to 30-pin Adapter:

The the only reason I gave this Apple product such a low rating is because it did not fit because of my Otterbox case. The adapter, without the case, works wonderfully and would recommend it to anyone. Just beware if you have a case make sure the adapter will fit, mine did not. I am a big fan of Apple and their products, I just did not take the time to see if it would fit with the case applied to my iPhone 5s, my fault. The adapter was to wide for the Lightning pin to fit into the slot, but again only because of the case. I did keep it and I am a tech nerd so I modified the adapter so it would fit the bottom of my iPhone! :)
