Giving it three stars as it works but be mindful that the micro USB that you insert will stick out a few millimetres and will wobble at the slightest touch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Could be better... 13 Mar. 2015
By ogenmatic - Published on
Verified Purchase
The item works and seems to be well made, BUT a better design would ensure that it fits through more phone cases. I have an iPhone 6 plus and the following cases: Rhinoshield (by Evolutive Labs), Sahara, and Tungsten by Ballistic. This adapter measures 6mm x 11mm (1/4" x 7/16") and the 6mm thickness only fits through the opening on the Ballistic case. The 11mm width is not a problem.

In comparison, the OEM Apple cords measure 4.75mm x 8mm (3/16" x 5/16").

My solution was to carefully file down both sides of the adapter 1/4" or so back from the lightening end until it fits through the other two iPhone cases. I've done this with other charging cords using a sharp utility knife but this needed to be filed as it is hard plastic.

For the life of me I do not understand why manufacturers don't simply save some plastic and make things that plug into phones small enough to go through the cases we inevitably put on them. Original Apple cables fit through [most] cases so why not make things to the same dimensions? Baffling.

If you've got the time & patience to do this, it works just fine. As I've seen some reviews here saying they've received ones that weren't Apple compliant, ensure that yours works before you start filing (if needed). Especially since it likely would disallow a return once you modify it.
Hope this helped. Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works amazing, reuse your old micro usb cables!! 18 Aug. 2015
By Edward Kim - Published on

Attached a photo, comparing it to the standard Apple brand converter, a Reese's pieces, and a penny. The Amazon converter is the black one, obviously just larger than the Apple brand. But it works just as well. Tested on a few micro usb cables, and works well with all of them. Definitely a great addition, highly recommended!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works BUT be Aware of Size 26 Nov. 2015
By I Like Stuff - Published on

Been looking at this for a while now. I have a lot micro usb cables and didn't want to have to carry many different charging cables for all of my different devices.

I plugged it onto my Amazon basics micro usb cable and plugged it first into my computer. The phone starting drawing power through it and connected as a data cable to my computer.

Next I plugged it into one of my Apple chargers and as expected it starting recharging my phone. I also used another micro usb from my ps4 and it charged my phone as well.

There are size concerns that people should be aware of before buying this adapter. While the standard apple charger lightning plug measured 5mm tall by 8mm wide, this adapter measures 6mm by 11mm. It may not seem like much of a difference but it is more than enough to make use with some cases snug to impossible. Currently I'm using the Bodyglove Satin case(iPhone 6) and due to the wide opening in the case, charging is not an issue with the case on. I also have the apple leather case and am pretty sure the case will not accommodate the 11mm width of this adapter.

This works as promised and I have had great experiences with Amazon Basic products so far. Make sure the size will be compatible but for the price of this adapter and the ability to use much cheaper and more readily available micro usb cables, I can easily recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best solution to the weak lightning cord I have found yet 28 Jan. 2016
By Jon - Published on
Verified Purchase
This connector adapter works great but it is small and very easy to lose. That is the one and only down side.
The Apple lightning cords all have an inherent flaw which is the cord breaks internally where the cord meets the lightning connector. If you have an iPhone or iPod, you know what I am talking about.
My teenage son is especially rough on cords because he often has his device connected to the cord while charging.
This adapter has solved that problem by eliminating that cheap cord. For some reason the micro usb ad mini usb cords are much sturdier, as ALL cords SHOULD be.
Since I gave my son this adapter, he has not had a need to replace a cord. Prior to this, he was going through a cord every 3-4 weeks. He's had this adapter using a generic micro usb cord for 3 months and has yet to have any issue at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too wide with an OtterBox Defender 8 Dec. 2016
By MarcusM - Published on
Verified Purchase
I've nothing but success with the Amazon Basics line of products, until now. This was the one time I didn't read the reviews and I got burned. Functionally, it's perfect, but it's much wider than it needs to be an DOES NOT fit an iPhone 6s w/ an Otter Box Defender case. I'm planning to shave down the edges with a Dremel, but future designs should consider a narrower width. Pictured with a standard Lightning cable for comparison.
