Where? You have just linked the HUKD homepage :P

I can vouch for these charging an iPad Air

that's an absolutely stonking deal if available!

Doesn't work for audio though

These r rubbish. Don't waste ur money. Between these and the 5 pin cables there useless.

I think we've established these are hit and miss with some devices but its a pound so can't see the problem.If it IS just take it back for a refund(when there's a great big queue)

They only work with iphone 5. IPad mini works but not very secure. Pretty useless for the other apple gadgets.

Use this on my iPad not the best quality but what do you expect for £1

A risk worth taking???

Sure. Will last a week at best. X52, cheaper to just buy a lightning cable from amazon basics. Less than £12 and 8 months later and 2 small boys battering it's still going strong.

There are ones on Ebay for less than £2 that do audio with a little headphone jack, works fine with our old style docks.

Only issue with all these adapters you can only chg with ceaseless phones. This is my biggest issue would've preferred a longer lightning connector on the front to allow it to go through the casing
Similar prices on eBay delivered however, got mine delivered for less than £1.20
Brilliant if you don't have your phone in a case though

I have two of these and an official apple adapter. These are really good for £1, do what they are designed to do. They are really light and flimsy though, you can tell when comparing to an official Apple one. Although they don't do audio, really useful for car chargers or computer docks.

Heat added

Personally I wouldn't bother with this - the reason the apple ones are so expensive is for a few reasons;
Reason 1 they contain an authentication chip to authorise the cable/adapter for charging the device - these chips alone cost around $2 to manufacture. The fake chips cost much less but tend to overheat and even burn through the adapter/cable
Reason 2 they contain a DAC to convert the digital lightning interface to an analogue audio for your speaker dock or whatever. This piece of kit is quite pricey.
Reason 3 the apple ones are clearly of a far higher quality and are massively over engineered so your paying for this also.

it will blow up your phone

Then the other £15 goes on marketing to make you believe you're getting £20 of tech.

I have an official Star Wars case and it works with adaptors and lightning docks as the cutout on the base is huge.
Thought it may interest you with the avatar.

how about curry's bargain basket HDMI. able 39.99 won't be beaten on price!

It would be even be even better if Apple used industry standard USB, then it would be £0.

99p on eBay delivered.

Doesn't work with the iPhone 5 on the Bose docking station..

Yeah, these are really poor quality, I bought a few and they last a couple of weeks before failing. And they only charge, they don't work with docks. Same with the cables - ok for charging but they only last a week or so.

Save your money and buy a genuine apple one instead.

One reason why I like to buy products elsewhere.

Despite Android's dominance there's still precious little integration with cars, speakers, docks etc. in comparison to Apple's eco-system. Bluetooth streaming makes it slightly better but it's still not a patch on the widespread adoption the dock connector had.

but would we now be getting the latest version of reversible USB if it wasn't for the creative design of a new lead by apple? I genuinely don't know but their creativity has and impact...

I'm a big android fan but love my iPod classic!

plug into the mains wearing goggles and make sure you have good home insurance....BOOM

Not worth the risk.
If you can afford to buy an overpriced Apple product then should be able to fork out for a genuine accessory.

even the official apple adapter says the product may or may not work with your Apple device.

After using Poundland's lighting cable and a lighting adapter with my i5, touchscreen became More and more unresponsive and had to be replaced. It was not the first time. Who knows what caused it but others who had it also used Poundland's cheap replacement. Just saying.

This bullsh*t doesnt work or it will work and then eventually stop working. Save ya pounds

It's hard to tell. My friend's iPhone 5 wouldn't turn on after a few weeks of using fake chargers/adaptors, she had to send it back. Clearly messed up the insides somehow.

also causes nuclear reactions in your phone which can kill. I also heard somewhere that if enough people use this product then the planet will simply explode into a dust cloud.

will it be use for iphone 5s which have ios7 system ?

The unknown brand low cost low quality normally results in increased risk of overheating/failure which may damage your expensive equipment.

Carry on though :-)

this doesnt work at all
