Yay! It works for the 5S just as well as the old model did for the 4S, Actually its more reliable than that version. No faffing about with the headphone socket this charges and does audio straight from the lightning socket. Only downside is you don't get a cradle. However a universal phone cradle for about £6:50 does the job well (avoid 5s specific models they assume you don't have a phone case). This also worked a treat with my ipad mini which was good for a long journey north with passenger.

I used this transmitter a few times going from Cork to Dublin (around 250km journey) and back. I set the transmitter up and began playing music from my mp3 player. The quality was not great but was acceptable, it was like listening to a cassette playing with some hiss in the background. (This can be improved by pressing the "Pro" button which adjusts the audio and volume). However the biggest issue I had with it was the fact that the cigarette lighter plug kept falling out of the cigarette lighter socket. As a result, the transmitter kept turning off and you would be startled by the loud hiss coming the car radio. For every journey, I used it, the longest that the device stayed on, was for a 5 minute period. For the rest of the time, it would turn itself off 2-3 times per song.

Pros:
1. Works at frequencies between 87.5 - 107.6. The frequencies 87.6 and 107.6 are good ones as there is usually very little on them therefore have to re-tune less.
2. You can save two frequencies that work best for you as presets on the device.
3. There is a usb connection which you can use to charge your mp3 player.

Cons:
1. Cigarette lighter plug kept falling out of the socket and as a result turning the transmitter off kept happening 2-3 times per song). Very annoying having to push it back in almost constantly on the journey.
2. Due to having to turn the radio volume up quite a bit to hear the music, when it turns itself off (which it does a lot!), the noise from radio can startle you which is not a good thing when driving.

Love this product. I had previously opted for some cheaper alternatives which even though would do the job for a bit, eventually died on me soon afterwards. I suppose you get what you pay for! I decided to go for Belkin on this occasion as I have had Belkin products in the past and they have always been pretty robust but started getting a little pricey. This product however at £12.99 I thought was worth the cash as I wanted something to last a bit longer.
I have to say I am delighted with it. It charges the phone pretty quickly as I have had chargers which struggle to charge whilst using certain SatNav apps whilst playing music as well. Talking of apps, this has a handy app you can download which keeps all activity on your phone. Touch the big button on the app and it automatically finds a clear station and tunes your Belkin product to that station. You still have to tune your radio obviously but its one less thing to worry about.
Highly recommend.

This is a useful piece of kit if your car stereo doesn't have AUX/Bluetooth or in my case if the iPod connection is broken. Works well and charges my iPhone 6 plus, I can use Siri commands while driving to choose songs etc. works straight out of the box, easy to tune and sound quality is OK through FM.

This is a GREAT product. I highly recommend it. 10/10.
Don't be put off buy the fact it's a Belkin product. I have read awful reviews of some of their products and have owned another of their FM Transmitters.
The last one I owned was similarly priced to this but had awful sound quality and was distorted very easily through the use of the electric windows/windscreen wipers etc. Virtually useless.
I was previously using a Griffin transmitter for my iPhone3 and that was fabulous, this is on par that in terms of sound quality/ease of use etc.
This one is made for the iPhone5 and connects through the lightning connection. iPhone5 transmitters are harder to find so this is an obvious choice and for a low price.
The charger function is another bonus as you need not worry about your phone running low on battery which I find is a problem on most Apple products.
The only criticism I may have is that it has a cable at either end of the device and I hate cables getting in the way of things or looking untidy.
However the cable does allow the charging facility and the length allows the iPhone to be hooked onto a dashboard cradle etc.
I also would suspect many owners could/would manipulate the cable around or through the dash to suit their car specifically. So it could end up looking like a rather attractive device within the interior.

All in all an amazing item and a must have for any iPhone 5 owner.

I cannot tell you how pleased I am to have found this. When I got my iPhone 5 I spent over a year looking for an FM transmitter that used the lightning port and could charge as well as play. I had one for my previous iPhones/iPod Touch, but obviously the old connection. I used the official apple adapter but the sound quality did suffer, then this week, after an update, the adapter (even though it was official apple) stopped being recognised. Apparently this is an issue that's been cropping up with ios 8.

Over the previous couple of years I had tried a Belkin transmitter that used the headphone jack, but couldn't get anything through it. The antenna in our mini-van was too far away. So when I had the compatibility issue with the apple lightning adapter, I looked again and found that at some point since I last searched Belkin had released this! I received it yesterday, plugged it in today and am absolutely thrilled with it. It has even better reception than my old one ever did, along with being able to charge the phone while in use.

Thank you Belkin for finally making this!
