The unit looks good, build quality seems reasonable. The fact that the Lightning connector sits a little higher on a plastic "base" might mean that it will work with some phone cases still on that the actual Apple adapter will not, since the connector sticks out further.
The bang for the buck is good for a charging and data adapter.
This adapter works as advertised and the price is good. It does not say that the audio will work. The actual Apple adapter contains authentication circuits and Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) circuits which I'm not sure anyone has reverse engineered yet. And any licensed products will cost about the same as the Apple adapter.
Works perfectly, and does exactly what it should. Was so happy to find this as I have heaps of the old apple cords, and had absolutely no idea what to do with them when I bought an iPhone 5!
The addition of the micro usb port is a handy feature, however, I am yet to use it.
If you need an adapter for your old apple cords, then this is a great buy, however, if you have a case on your iPhone that doesn't have a large open bottom, than I suggest you buy a different adapter. That's of course unless you have no issue with removing your case every time you need to use the adapter!
After buying a new i-phone 5 and having old chargers for my car, office and home, I decided to pick a couple of these up rather than buying the full lightning wires. Of the two I bought, one works great, no problems.
As more alternatives like cheaper multi-device cables come out, I plan on replacing this, but as a temporary cheap way to keep chargers everywhere I want one, it's a good solution.
With only two purchased and one defective it's hard to conclude anything meaningful other than there are some bad ones out there. Given the number of old i-phone and i-pod cables it is nice to be able to have a way to preserve them.
Perfect adapter for those of us who have an iPhone 5, an iPhone 3GS, an iPad 3, and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. I can finally have one micro-USB cable to charge virtually every mobile device in the household! Very handy to have one at the office, in the car and in the suitcase. Great price, will be buying more as gifts! Apple 8-pin adapter is long enough to use without having to remove my phone's case (case is about 1mm thick).
Good quality built and material. Works as supposed with all kinds of iPhones, incl. iPhone 5. Glossy material makes its look non-cheap! Has a protective film to detach after delivery ;-) Connectors are very thin and will fit even vapor-like cases.
I thought this sku will replace sku 150192 as the cable with more length, but it turned out to be the same short length. Dissapointed, actually.
Cheap solution for cable and the 30-pin to lightning adapter in one.
