One less cable to carry! One cable and one adaptor able to charge a selection of devices, handbag less congested 09 September 2014
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. 08 July 2014
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 24 June 2014
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. 03 June 2014
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 27 May 2014
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 ! 29 January 2014
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. 14 January 2014
Good product 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. 31 December 2013
