Summary: I initially purchased this adapter hoping that it would work on a Tascam audio interface that I got as a present. Unfortunately, it did not work with that particular device. However, since I have quite a few 30 pin chargers that I leave in various places, this adapter suddenly became more valuable...
Excerpt: I was peeved when Apple decided to change USB connectors for the Ipad mini to the smaller one used for the new Iphone 5. I have several of the larger connectors for the Iphone 4S, which I love. This little gadget transforms the connectors I already own into the smaller adapter for the mini.
Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Functionality, Lightweight
Excerpt: There were adapters that were short and caused the iPhone to sit high on a device and seem wobbly. This adapter has a slightly longer chord allowing you to plug into Apple products and then lay your iPhone 5 on the surface next to the clock/speaker.
Summary: Recently purchased the iPod fifth-generation touch. Needed to update my cables. Bought the small adapter, but did not fit with case on. This solves that problem and also gives more flexibility when connecting to docks. A bit pricey though.
