Work as described – 8-Pin Lightning to 30-Pin Adapter Cable for iPhone 5 - White Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It works, and it is reasonably priced. I have lots of charger and cables from the iPad2, but cannot be used on my iPhone5. With this converter, I could connect to all of them. I can also use this with my other adaptors that I've purchased earlier to VGA port for presentation purpose (not that I want to do any from iPhone5 though).
Cons:
The only issue with this adaptor is that it doesn't transmit audio, even to the HDMI converter I have from Apple. So, essentially sound will be lost if I were to connect to TV. Only video will be projected not the sound.
Other:
Although sound cannot be transmitted with this converter, overall it serves the purpose that I bought it for --> connect to the old USB cable and the charger.
Bottomline:
A worthy alternative to buying lots of new charger etc.
