1.0 out of 5 stars What's the chance of this actually working?, 28 Oct 2012
Given the Apple Lightning connector has a built-in chip for authentication, device identification and dynamic pin assignment, and given that Apple are meeting with accessory manufacturers in November to discuss specs, what's the chances of a third party dock actually working at all?

The only way you'll trap a mouse with this is if it crawls in and shuts the door behind it before dying.
