Original Apple Lightning HDMI adapter £32.99 at Amazon (RRP £40)

Found 2nd Dec 2014
Not the cheapest it's ever been on Amazon, but almost 20% off RRP.
I wouldn't trust many other outlets other than Apple and Amazon because these things get faked easily.
Expensive but worthwhile gadget that allows you to connect iPad mini, iPads from 4 onwards and iPhones from 5 onwards (any that use lightning) to a TV via HDMI.
Allows TV out/screen mirroring - the same as Apple TV but cheaper and doesn't need a wifi network (i.e. hotels abroad!).

This WILL go cold, but for those that can see past the obvious, it's £7.01 cheaper than the only other reliable seller....so hopefully this will be useful for some.

Sorry, but for what is a HDMI cable for your Apple device this price is ridiculous!

...deserves to go cold I'm afraid, Apple are just greedy scumbags!!

If you are paying £32.99 for a 50p value cable like this then HUKD really isn't the place to be....

Hi DennisG, is this the cable that lets you stream from iPad to TV. I am totally bad with technology. Thank You

Guys - okay it may be expensive for what it actually is but for those that actually need/want one this is still a deal for them as it is cheaper than most places!!!

Doesnt deserve to go cold just because you think its over priced.

Well I've been after one of these for a while to watch movies off my phone or iPad and cheapest around was over 40 quid which wasn't guaranteed an apple product so heat from me, if any of you know of cheaper feel free to list it and if you can get them for 50p then buy a load and stick on eBay to get your Christmas sorted

As usual the mention of Apple means a downvote. O.k. it's expensive, but there's a saving on the RRP so by definition it should be hot.

Yes - as long as it's the iPad which uses the lightning connector and not the 30 pin one.
which model is yours?

Mine is an iPad Air.

Actually this is much more than just a cable, there is a small computer inside that does all the work (Google it!)

Heads up , Will not work on Sky go , I got one to use when working away so I could watch sky and hdmi is disabled in the app it's fine for bbc I player and Netflix

Great find. Just be aware as usual with any apple product they very limited. Not every app or movie with play on ur tv.

I was aware of this! Reviews are not great. I feel I'm wasting money being a Prime member and not using the benefits. Willing to give this a go.

According to the reviews on Amazon, no, you can't. Same thing goes with Sky go. Apple is the obvious target they all moan at but I'm certain it's sky who blocked AirPlay and tv mirroring, so am sure Amazon chose to disable it on their app.

I have the 30 pin one of these, and you can definitely mirror the NBA game time app, chrome, safari and bbc I player. You definitely cannot mirror 4OD.

Actually 4od released an update last week enabling HDMI mirroring... Ios8 and above however

The reason they are priced high is they are actually a mini computer inside which decodes direct from the bus. The advantage is no matter what comes in the future - say another standard they can provide an adapter for it unlike some hardware which is fixed with a hard wired device. Lightening cable is also correctly rated for high powered charging (unlike micro usb), it's actually a more future proof design, once you have the adapter you can keep it for a considerable time as the bus technology doesn't change as frequently as the video and audio standards and consumer requirements, I agree they could subsidise the cost somewhat

Hi DennisG, I should have read the reviews myself. Sorry for being a pain. Do you think I should return it. I am not at all clear, regarding what it can be used for!

It can be used to mirror your screen, however some apps specifically lock this out. The ones that do tend to be the ones that have reasons to stop you putting video onto your TV via an iPhone subscription. It doesn't make sense with amazon because your subscription does cover other methods that will easily link to the TV, but this is something only amazon can answer.

Their returns policy is good, although I once changed my mind and was charged return postage. Call them and have a word, explain that you pay £80 and wanted to use this device to access their paid service, and hopefully they'll waive the return postage charge.

In order to check if an app works with this, try searching 'airplay + app name' and seeing the experience of others. Airplay is the wireless screen mirroring though apple TV but I'm almost certain the same restrictions are in place with this cable, if it doesn't work on apple TV, it won't work on this, likewise, if it does work on one, it'll work on the other.

Anybody know if this works with Movie Box App?
