Rated 4 out of 5 by from This does the trick You can thank Apple for requiring products like this. Now I can listen to music and charge my phone at the same time. Please be aware - just as the item description says: You can only use these ports for audio and charging. Not for data transfer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not able to evaluate fairly Honestly, I've not been able to use this product with my equipment so cannot give a fair opinion.
Date published: 2017-11-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, If You Need It Full disclosure: I was sent this product to review it. Honestly, it works great for its intended purpose. I was able to charge my phone and connect Lightning headphones at the same time. I didn't notice any difference in sound quality between plugging the headphones into this product or plugging them straight into my iPhone. They also work perfectly with the 3.5 mm to Lightning adapter provided by Apple with my phone. The RockStar feels sturdy and uses Apple's signature look well. If it weren't for the Belkin logo on the Lightning plug, this could easily have been mistaken for something made by Apple. It also couldn't be simpler to use. Plug it into the iPhone and plug your headphones and power cord into either available port. There are only two things I could think of to make this product better. First would have been to have one port be a 3.5 mm jack. I only have the one pair of lightning headphones Apple provided and the adapter. I have a pile of old headphones though. My second thought would have been, if you have two Lightning ports on the adapter, let it be used to plug in two sets of headphones to act as a splitter. This may be a limitation set by Apple and not the product itself, but it would add a level of use to the RockStar. If you use Lightning headphones or 3.5 mm headphones with a Lightning adapter, this is a great product to be able to listen to music while you charge your phone. Personally, I use Bluetooth about 99.9% of the time, but I'm glad I have this product for those times I can't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great No bluetooth on my stereo; but I can plug in when I get home, charge up, and listen to my music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone should get one Belkin really stepped up and created something every iPhone owner needs. I use this adapter every single day in my car and during my lunch. It works perfectly and is very reliable. I've never had a problem with it. I love how the color matches the original iPhone cables and the build quality is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent adapter to charge and play music. Unit is typical quality build like Belkin products overall. Maximizes the potential to play music and charge your phone at the same time. Simple to use and built to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Life Saver I think most of us have been there...your phone is losing power and there isn't a socket around to plug into...do you turn off your phone to save what power you have or do you hope to find a place to charge it. The RockStar Charger has helped me charge my phone when I needed it the most. It is light weight, easy to use, and after charging my phone I still had power left over. Great for emergencies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Features In all fairness, I have only used this for one month, therefore I feel this review may be a little premature. Each time I have used the audio charger it has worked just fine. I have to say I like the concept of charging your phone while listening to your music. Word of caution, this product is not a splitter, it charges your phone while listening to music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good It's a high quality apple product accessories. Especially when you struggle with apples new standard for after iphone 6, this could save your life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unwanted necessity With the removal of the iPhone's headphone jack, there's only one place to plug in for power, headphones and accessories. While I hate dongles, this is a handy addition to keep in my car or on travels as it allows me to power up my iPhone while listening to music, which is critical in keeping me happy while drivings. Solidly crafted and the white matches all my other Apple accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly Very happy with this product. High quality construction and works exactly as advertised.
Date published: 2017-11-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect answer to an unnecessary problem... I still don’t understand the move to remove the audio jack. especially since you now have to make the decision between your headphones (that will need an adapter) and charging. No longer! This adapter gives you the headphone audio adapter as well as an accessory lightning jack which can be used for charging, etc. !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! I really like that I can charge my phone and listen to music again. The “LACR” is compact, well designed and easy to use. I definitely recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Backup Option!!! This is an awesome back-up when I don’t have my bluetooth headphone at work. Love to be able to charge my phone and listen to my music at the same time. It’s a little bulky but, it works.
Date published: 2017-10-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very functional The Audio & Charge Rockstar solves the problem of only having one port on your iphone. Now you can have your headphones and external battery/power plugged-in at the same time. The dongle gets a bit long if you are also using a 3.5 adapter dongle on your headphones. Would be nice if this were designed as a “T” and you could connect power/headphones along the bottom of your phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Light & provides a quick Charge Just tried out my new Belkin Charger. Really like it. Very light and quickly charged my Iphone. It's the perfect solution to having another charge with you at all times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome duo I received my Lightening Audio + Charge Rockstar and love it. I will be taking it on my next trip. This will allow me to charge my phone without giving up my music on my long flights. I really love the ability to keep listening and charging at the same time. Great addition to my tech collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It’s great, but I’d lose the wire I think. Works great. No issues with connecting or working properly. Not too big in size, but I think I’d like to see the wire go a,d just plug into the bottom. Granted that brings up case compatibility but it is just a thought.
Date published: 2017-10-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it’s designed to do Whilst at home listening to music from my iPhone 7+ I use the Apple Ear Pods which requires you use the Apple adapter which obviously create the problem of not being able to concurrently charge the phone. The Rockstar fixes this issue very well. My only wish is that it had the Apple adapter built in because it is still necessary while using the Rockstar. Still gave it a five star rating as it performs perfectly for what it was designed to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim and Durable Design Overall works great as designed. The cable and its connectors are durable. The instructions were simple too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product is not compatible with my iPhone. This product is made for an iPhone 7 or eight. I have an iPhone 6. I am considering upgrading to an iPhone eight in the near future so I did not return it.
Date published: 2017-10-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Are You Kidding Me? This is great! So right out of the easy hassle-free packaging i took out the cable and put it to use. No slowing down as far as charging speed and quality of music through the headphones is not lost either! This piece really is great. On thing I would perhaps think about it is, being this is mainly for the phone or only for the phone, I would think about shortening the cable part, or perhaps offer one that does not have a cable at all and simply plugs in to the bottom of the phone, if possible. Besides that this little device is great and perfect for its use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cool. Charge and be charged. Very cool device to change your phone and audio at the same time. Eliminates having separate ways to charge - love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good solid product Good solid product using it in car to be able to charge phone and connect to factory radio with cable. No issues with performance or fit. Works well. Would buy again. Works with both apple cables and after market without issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical Belkin Quality! Be careful as everyone is making these today but use them once or twice and they fall apart. I love Belkin products as I can rely on the quality and operation. You can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charge, Listen , and dance! This is the nitche I was looking for. I’m always jamming to music or talking on my headset. Unfortunately when I needed a charge I couldn’t do both until now. Thank you for this little invention. I can charge up and listen to my jams at the same time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Idea! My Lightning Audio + Charge Rockstar has been great to have around. Now while listening to my tunes I can also get my phone fully charged while walking on my treadmill every day.
