My actual rating is 5 zeros (00000). *The picture on Amazon.com is not what you get. *The cheap (as in flimsy) adapter does not work. It's a total waste of my $6.88. *It's a disservice for Amazon.com to sell this on their site. It will make me question the quality of other items on the site. Is this how you justify price reductions???...
PLEASE NOTE: It would be better if goingpower removed the product from the site rather than ask me not to exercise my freedom of speech, which can help another customer.

The slightest wiggle makes it stop charging. Not acceptable for the car. It does not work at all with the Withings blood pressure monitor.

This adapter is complete garbage. The fit and finish is horrible and it only works for power when plugged in in one direction. It does not work at all for data. When I bought it, it was $6.00. They've obviously jacked-up the price. I wouldn't even pay the $6 I paid for it. Garbage, garbage, garbage. Save yourself the money and frustration and buy the real one from Apple.

This adapter is more than just a connector change. It also has an Digital-to-Analog converter built in for supplying line level audio. This is why the Apple adapter is more expensive and why it's the only one able to play audio on most systems.

What changed?
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 Not to mention that we finally get to ditch the cumbersome, ugly, limited, and outdated 30 pin dock.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...

I own a portable stereo that has a 30 pin connector. I have this unit so I can listen to music and charge my device at the same time.
However after buying a new iPhone 5 I had to purchase this adapter in the hope that it would do the same......no it doesn't.
Does this allow my phone to play music: yes
Does it charge the unit at the same time: no

As a matter of fact my phone says it is incompatible with this device and quits playing through the speaker, occasionally. This adapter also makes the unit sit too high off the device and I am just waiting for it to topple over.

There are no new stereo devices on the market to utilize the new connector, and because the adapter does not allow the unit to be charged while plugged in, I am wondering if one ever will be made.

I gave 3 stars because it does allow my phone to play through the system, otherwise I would give 1 star as it is a waste of money as I can do the same thing with an AUX cable connection that I have that I paid $3.00 for two years ago.......
My stereo is an ALTEC LANSING iMT520 made specifically for iPod and iPhone (pre-iPhone 5).

I have been waiting patiently for the item to finally arrive after the seller sent me a number of email to inform me of the delayed delivery. The item had not arrived almost 2 months after my order. I understand it would take time since this product line was new. Unfortunately, the item finally arrived and it was defective and never worked even though how many times I tried to make it work. I eventually bought a different one from a different seller from China and it worked perfectly fine. The bottom line is this item is effective and do not by this one. If you want to buy an adapter that will work, buy it from Yoyobase and only for $4.67. It has been working perfectly fine for me. Hope this helps.

I did purchase this adapter as well as a couple of the others to do a comparison. None of the off brands fit correctly if at all in the iPhone 5. I uploaded side by side photos of the Apple adapter and this one and you can see the extreme difference. The off brand does fit into the phone as long as no case is on it, however the connection is loose and does not stay snug to keep a stable cord connection. If you have a case on your phone do not purchase this at all. It simply will not connect to the iphone due to the excessive width and off center of the prong. Yes the Apple adapter is much more expensive but to get what you know works and not throw money away is worth it.
