I have a bunch of 30-pin devices such as the JBL Onbeat Air, Tascam iM2 Mic at home and I was not even thinking about selling or giving it away anytime soon. Unfortunately I could not stop myself from getting an iPhone 6 and iPad Mini Retina.

So here I am at last uniting the world's best phone and tablet with some of the best accessories you can get for the iPhone.

I only wish that some accessories like the 30 pin Card readers would work for the iPhone instead of just the iPad. Also not all 3rd party accessories work with the 30 pin adapter. Its not 100% perfects so please keep that in mind.

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!

apple lightning rod

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

The lightning rod is perfect when one purchases a new device but wants to continue to use older devices like the ihome or speaker systems. It's nice that we can continue to use the older things and not have to purchase all new things.....

Not Case Friendly

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

Got this so I could use one cable to charge my older iPad (30 pin) and my wife's iPad Air (Lightning). However, due to the width of the adaptor the lightning connector won't go far enough into the iPad Air to charge as the opening for the connector in the case for her iPad is only wide enough for the lightning connector itself. Also tried it with an jiPhone 5S, with a case, and same problem. Too bad Apple didn't make the lightning connector on the adaptor a little longer.

The good news is that my local Staples store refunded my purchase price with no problem!

Works Great But Price Too High

By JCF

Verified Buyer

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

It does exactly the trick that I needed but since it is an Apple product, it is price fixed at too high a price.
