YOU CANNOT get better service than that/this. I am very critical and I do expect to get a reasonable level of service from any company and as we all know some are better than others and likewise worse than others. Communication is the main factor in any transaction and I am/was very pleased with the way everything was conducted. Before anyone thinks it no I am not in the employ of the company!
When the adapter is connected to the phone iOS7 shows a pop up stating the device is not certified and may not function properly.
I have to note that iTunes does load up and the phone does charge at this point.
However, iTunes does not recognise your phone and cannot sync your data.
My phone also did not regognise my iBG Star mmol meter - clearly data transfer of any kind is not possible.
Faulty device? Incompatible with iOS7.3?
It should be noted that icestation did promptly issue a replacement and then a prompt full refund when the replacement also did not work as expected. (same issue/fault as original adapter)
Either way not fit for purpose - sorry icestation (seller) 1 Star for the product (If service was rated I'd give more, but these are solely product reviews)
The Technical explanation:
Lightning adapters and cables contain a special chip that your Apple product it is plugged into queries to ascertain whether or not it is "Apple Certified". A "knock off" will only contain the wires and body of the adapter/cable ... no chip.
One more thing: I compared the "feel" of this item when plugging into an iPhone with a genuine Apple Lightning cable/adapter. The genuine (Apple) product slips in easily and then has a definite click. This unit is harder to slip in and has no discernible click, and unfortunately didn't actually work.
Functionality aside, the physical differences made me concerned about possible damage to the Lightning connector in my Apple product. I've tested this on a number of knock-off products and they behave the same.
I'm not an exclusive Apple-only fan by any means - which is why I wanted a lower cost accessory like this item. Unfortunately I could not use it (or others like it).
So my advice is: stick with the real thing if you value your expensive iPhone / iPad etc.
It works almost perfectly with all my Apple products that have the lightning connection.
Now to explain the 'almost' :
If I plug the connector and cable into my iPod before connecting it to the power source I get an error telling me that the device is incompatible, however, if I connect to the power source and then connect the iPod I get no error. If you do get an error message, remove the connector and plug it in to the power and then connect the iPod and voilà! It works like a charm.
In summary, it's excellent value for money and gets the job done.

terrible, doesn't work. i ended up cutting the headphone socket off and using it as a charger adaptor, but that was rubbish too because you get the error message on your phone. Read morePublished 6 months ago by David Kindred
When using for Audio playback the music cuts out!
Therefore does not work properley and you are better off spending more money on something that will work.
Good value and does exact,y the job it is intended for. I have mine fitted permanently in my glovebox so that I can charge my iPhone and play music at the same time.Published 7 months ago by JSW
