I'm pleased to report that this adapter cable works with the following:
- Any generic USB-to-30-pin iPhone charger.
- Any generic iPhone audio adapter that simply puts out analog line-level audio.
- Any generic car adapter that plugs into 3.5mm audio and a usb cable for charging.
- Old USB to dock-connector cables that connect from a computer to your iPhone.
- Most other accessories (I've used it with a GuitarJack Model II, for example).
Good things about this cable:
- It 'Just Works' with almost any 30-pin cable or accessory.
- It's longer than the simple cable-less adapter.
- It's well-built, so it won't fray or break apart for a while (just be careful with it!).
Downsides to this cable:
- 0.2M is *really* short. Like, six inches.
- The cable is relatively thick (twice the thickness of a standard 30-pin USB cable or Lightning USB cable), so it's not too flexible.
- It's expensive. Hopefully some 3rd party can make a cheaper replacement, especially one with a longer cable!
The original 30 pin dock supplied a digital signal, analog audio, video, and more; the new Lightning port is digital only. Analog audio is still available via the headphone jack.
What do you need?
1. If your iPhone interfaces with your stereo through a USB connection, then you can use any adapter available on Amazon, even the cheap ones.
2. If your current dock connects to the radio via a 3.5mm stereo plug, RCA connection, or a cassette adapter, then you will have to use this adapter.
3. If the dock interfaces directly with the audio device, then it could be either digital or analog. You will have to research this yourself. Find out what your device uses and get the appropriate adapter (check the owners manual, contact the manufacturer, do your homework and don't be lazy).
Why would Apple do this?
More and more equipment is going full digital. The components and software used by the digital to analog converter can greatly affect the sound quality. This conversion would be handled far better by radio manufacturers than by Apple. Not to mention that we finally get to ditch the cumbersome, ugly, limited, and outdated 30 pin dock. Technology moves forward...
The casing on the USB->Lightning cable is 0.262 x 0.147 inches, on this adapter the casing is 0.318 x 0.207 inches.
My car has a USB port instead of a 30-pin connector for hooking up mobile devices, so it was a simple fix - purchase a Apple Lightning to USB Cable and I'm done. However, my wife's car has a 30-pin connector and no way to replace it. So, it was time to purchase this item.
I purchased this adapter right before Christmas. Wrapped it up and gave it to my wife as one of her Christmas presents so that she could hook up her new iPad mini in the car that day. Took it out of the box, hooked it up, and nothing. Adapter didn't work. Thought maybe it wouldn't work in the car, so brought it in the house and hooked it up to an old 30-pin cable hooked up to a charger. Still didn't work. First one was DOA.
So, the day after Christmas I returned it and the next day I received the replacement from Amazon. Hooked it up in the car and it worked perfectly. Using the adapter, the radio in the car can see the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, can control them from an audio standpoint, and of course, the audio works. I've also tried the adapter out on two different audio devices in the house (one a Sony ICFCS15iPBLK 30-Pin iPod/iPhone Speaker Dock and one a JBL On Stage 200ID High-Performance Speaker Dock for iPhone 4/4S and iPod (Black)) and it works as intended on both of these.Read more ›
