Convenience comes cheap! – 8-Pin Lightning to 30-Pin Adapter Cable for iPhone 5 - White Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
A cheap alternative to the $30 connectors that Apple sell, and it does the same thing at a little over 10% of the price. The cable and plastics appear to be strong and durable and all the connections fit correctly with the 30 pin cable and the lightning port in my iPad
Cons:
Sometimes the product doesn't work. Although it says it's charging, sometimes it just drains the battery and does nothing. It also has a tendency to get hot.
Other:
It's almost identical to the original Apple adaptor in terms of appearance, but not quality.
Bottomline:
If you would like to purchase an adaptor and you are not willing to fork out $30, then definitely go for one of these.
