Apple Lightning connection to 30 pin adapter
AN ABSOLUTE MUST FOR THE CAR
This product, although a bit expensive, is a must for the car. I have the old type connector fitted to my stereo equipment for the ipod touch. Now I can connect this and use it to recharge the phone if necessary. I suggest putting it into a small box when not in use , so as not to lose it or damage the connections.

but what about the cover getting in the way!
this does what it says on the box and that's all we can ask. however, if you've bought a cover too you cant use this with it still on, undermining its functionality - DOH!! Its a bit of an own goal in my view

Just what I needed!
My husband bought me a lovely speaker for my iPad unfortunately I couldn't connect it as it had a 30 pin connection. Researched on line, found what was needed and John Lewis had one in stock. The online service was excellent and my product was ready to collect the next day. Great sound was achieved! I am very pleased with the product and it does exactly what I needed.

Expensive but essential
Genuine Apple product that allowed me to use Iphone 5 in car and with various other devices which originally were being used with Iphone 4
A cheaper lookalike from Tescos didn't work

Expensive and poorly designed apple product shock horror!
Gadget needed for connecting new 'lightning' ipod to old style 30 pin ipod player/docking product sockets.
Very expensive for what it is.
Small connector has to bear the weight of the ipod, balancing precariosly off-centre
I understand that this is progress, but the design could be improved with a flexible short wire for example.
In future, I will use the usb cable supplied with ipod and get a 3 pin adaptor for that !

Works well - as long as you remove the case!
I bought this so that I could use my camera connection kit (which was bought for a normal IPad) with my iPad mini but it only works if I remove the case to get the connector to stay in place. Sort of defeats the point of buying a case in the first place, if you have to keep removing it.
It seems that to use my existing camera connector without removing the case, I have to buy 2 separate adapter (one for SD & one for USB) at double the cost.

Apple have finally realised that the audio quality of their products is rubbish. This little adapter although it is expensive actually contains a high quality analog converter. This means that I can put my new ipod onto my pro-ject dock and get audio from my ipod that sounds as good as my CD player. So in a nut shell this adapter makes the ipod, great, were before the ipod was a massive disappointment.

The only adaptor you would want buy.
An adaptor to fit over the old 30pin dock connectors to allow current gen iphone/nanos/touches to be compatible. While it seems a little much for what it is you can be sure this adaptor will work. There are many 3rd party adaptors out there, but they don't work. Sporting a mish mash of either audio or power or nothing at all. With this adaptor you can be sure it will fulfil its intentions.
