It works, and it is reasonably priced. I have lots of charger and cables from the iPad2, but cannot be used on my iPhone5. With this converter, I could connect to all of them. I can also use this with my other adaptors that I've purchased earlier to VGA port for presentation purpose (not that I want to do any from iPhone5 though).
Although sound cannot be transmitted with this converter, overall it serves the purpose that I bought it for --> connect to the old USB cable and the charger.
A worthy alternative to buying lots of new charger etc.
This is a handy and great cable to have around but the 30 pin end does not sync anything, I tried an iPad 2, an iPod Classic and an iPod nano and none were recognized by iTunes...It does however let you charge 2 things simultaneously.
Great for those who travel and have an iPhone 5/iPad 3 or iPhone 4S/iPad mini but keep in mind that the 30 pin won't sync!
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.
