Found this on wowcher and picked up one seeing the nearest price I can find is £22 on eBay! Think there is a 2.95 p&p but definitely still a good deal!

this seems like a great price. Why is it so cold already?

For £10 I can't understand why it's cold? Your loss

What's this for exactly

Original Poster

If anyone has an iPhone 5 it has a new lightening style adaptor. With most pieces of apple equipment having the older 30 pin connection this is an adaptor to convert from one connection to the other

Paid £3.16 from a UK eBay seller a few weeks ago same seller has it £8.99 now...

LOL, so as well as no Bluetooth, no flash player, no near field connectivity, you now after purchase an adaptor to use it on most of the apple compatible equipment.
No thanks I'll stick with Android

how do you make the purchase, i just paid by paypal, does that just give me credit and i still have to do something else?

Once paid and the deal closes it will send email you he voucher to use on their website. Trickydickybeer, not sure why you think it has no Bluetooth?

If not an official apple one you will find it will not work after later iOS updates.Apple want to cut out third party copies so have added a chip which can change the orientation of the wires.

Ok srewartbaresellotti, it has very limited Bluetooth, try sending a music file to another phone and you'll see what I mean, ditch the IPhone mate I did, got an Xperia T and would never go back

You didn't buy an iPhone 5 because of a £15 adaptor?

HI Lanse, this is what made me move from Apple to android, I updated and then a piece of equipment I had would no longer charge my phone, bssstrds

No bluetooth? Funny that my iPhone 5 has it then.
No flash, agreed, but not only Apple reject flash. Flash is not the way forward and is a technology on its last legs.
No near field technology. Hardly a loss but can be replicated with an app if needed.
I'd sooner have a high speed lightning charger/lead than not, charges far faster than the previous leads. If that means I have to use an adaptor if I want to connect to old accesories then so-be-it. Personally have not felt the need so far and have had my iPhone 5 since launch.

but this only works for chugging and transfer ,, doesnt do audio so it won't work the older music stand in docks

brrrrrrr very expensive for lack or true support

are these genuine or 3rd party? strange to get it so cheap for an official one?

Would have thought 3rd party.

I haven't found any third party adapter on eBay with supports audio. This one does, so I'm guessing it must be genuine (or incorrect description)? If it is an Apple adapter, it's a good discount.

I didn't think the iPhone 5 was particularly heavy to begin with...

Sold out

Its the need for things like this that makes me hate Apple, I was quite sure some rule was passed meaning all phones had to use a universal connector meaning all chargers would work with all phone but Apple just go their own way charging their flock of sheep a fortune to follow them and the flock seem to love that **** like its going out of fashion, I honestly believe they could put a turd in a snazzy box and call it a iturd, charge £700 and people would queue up for weeks to be the first to own it....

Droid for the win

I bought 2 from ebay a week ago. The cable one and the normal one. One charges my iphone5 only so no audio support, etc and the other didn't work. If this supports audio as claimed then I'll be very happy. Thanks OP!

since lightning doesnt support analogue audio output the adaptor needs a dac to give audio out. if a third party one does actually have analogue out then it could be terrible quality. I heard the official one is ok. still retarded that they stopped lightning outputting analogue in the first place, but that's another way for them to charge Apple tax for something so I shouldn't be surprised.

received. it is fake.

Yes fake and still awaiting my refund!
