Useful but broken already, poor quality – 8-Pin Lightning Male to Apple 30-Pin Female Adapter Cable for iPhone 5 - White Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Allows use of old ipod and iphone accessories like docks with new iphone 5 and other lightning connector devices. Cable is a good length to allow iphone 5 to sit on the table beside the dock, not too long to have extra cable.
Cons:
Quality is rubbish. The lightning connector part is only a press fit inside the sheath/plug section. This means the when you try to remove the plug buy pulling on the plug itself (not the cable), the inside of the plug pulls out and stays connected to the phone and exposing the board, bare wires and soldered connections.
Other:
A tiny drop of super glue would solve this problem, then I wouldn't have a broken cable sitting on my desk.
Bottomline:
The price is much cheaper than other versions so I will probably buy another one and make sure it is glued and fixed properly before I use it.
