Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a safe one I couldn’t find one that didn’t say “this may not be compatible” when I tried to use it. I learned the hard way that it really isn’t. Works great and is clear. It’s so sad I had to pay so much to get something for my iPhone but nothing else was a sure thing. I can always find something with Belkin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasted three months This is my second one I purchased and each lasted about 3 months. Loved it when it was working.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wiring breaks; max product life three months I’ve purchased five total since November of 2017. I bought three of them six months ago for the house, car, and briefcase. All of them short out with the slightest bit of bending with a max life of about three months. I’ve also tried other products that cost 1/3 of the price and they fail sooner. Now, to charge and talk, I’ve got to spend another $45 for three month or less.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke in less than 2 weeks I bought this charger two weeks ago from Best Buy and it already has stopped working unless it is situated just right. It makes no difference if it is on my IPhone 7 or if I switch it over to my iPad. I’m super disappointed. I have had many other Belkin products over the years and have not ever experienced this poor of quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from works for about 6 months I have had two of these. They both lasted about 1 year each until they would become loose in the port or a short in the cable and either would not charge or play music unless you moved the wire around. The first time I thought maybe it was just a bad unit, the second one I knew it was a bad design.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Essential product—bogus lifespan By now I’ve had about 6 or 7 of these. Almost like clockwork, they stop working after 3 months. Very infuriating. Very disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Falls apart in 6 months I bought the product 6 months ago. It worked well in the beginning, but unfortunately then it started falling apart in less than 6 months and now it has started malfunctioning as well. The idea is good, quality is not.
Date published: 2018-12-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Two out of three adapters are working I have bought three of these adapters and only two have worked from the beginning, the third one has not worked since I received it. Now one of the two that work need electrical tape to keep it working. Don’t get me wrong I do love this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed within a year Unfortunately I cannot recommend this product. The unit I bought recently is a replacement for one I bought less than a year ago. The older unit simply stopped playing audio over the headphones. Charging still works, but unless both are working at the same time, why bother?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work Need to charge an ipad while running sound to it. At first hooking up - it will only charge and not recognize the sound. When I restate the ipad with it hooked up - it will not charge nor will it recognize sound. I've made every software update and tried every combination of plugging this in to no avail. Usually have good experiences with Belkin but this item does not work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It worked great for about 3 months I think a wire broke inside it after about 90 days of use. It still charges, but the audio seldom, if ever, works. I largely used the unit while phone was lying on my desktop

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good idea This wears out very fast. I have the ability to charge but no audio
Date published: 2018-10-12
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Its already broken I got this about 4 months ago (just out of warranty go figure) and it already stopped charging. This on top of that fact that it only worked plugged in on way has really turned me off from Belkin. I read the reviews here and hoped for the best but I guess theyre true. Such a bummer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works for a while then drops audio Work for a few minutes then disconnects audio. This happens while charging or not

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk - doesn’t work I bought it so I could charge my iPhone AND make calls with my earphones at the same time while driving. IT DOES NOT WORK! $40 down the drain!!! I can’t even take it back for an exchange. I bought it on a business trip at a non-chain store in a town I’ll probably never do back to!!
Date published: 2018-09-25
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok, but clunky design. I have been using this for about 6 months, I was working great! Until it started fraying just like all other Apple charging cables. Partially because of the cord design, and the clunky design of the product. I have moved my dash phone holder multiple times to make the cord hang straight, but it still frayed and either the power, or the audio connection works, but not both at that same time. Please consider using different materials in this design, because carrying the apple standard will guarantee fraying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oversized Aux Cable I bought this a few weeks ago and it DOESNT charge my phone! Only the auxiliary feature works! Waste of $40! Now I’m stuck with another piece of junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute garbage Absolute garbage. Had less than six months and used only Apple brand cables. It burned two Apple cables. I thought it was a fluke but it was it. Used it as directed. I found this website just so I could leave this review. What makes matters worse is Apple actually used to have this on their website. They must know it’s garbage now too because they took it off

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was looking forward to it but........ Hate that I even had to buy something like this. (Thx alot Apple, but well played) Just bought it on Aug 11th to listen to music at work. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. It works great when it does work. I have to plug it in and unplug it at least twice to get it to work properly. Main issue: It will charge but the headphones don’t work at the same time until I unplug it and try again. Very annoying. :/

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Intermittent connection... I use this on my work computer (desktop) and the connection is terrible. It drops connection and reconnects over and over as if I were unplugging/replugging.
Date published: 2018-07-24
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don’t waste your money I bought this product last year and it was great! I loved it! For the whole TWO MONTHS IT WORKED! I wasn’t informed of a warranty had I known I would have used the warranty. Now I’m sure I’ll be told it was normal wear and tear.
Date published: 2018-07-20
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horribly Priced I mean, it works but the pricing is terrible! I wouldn’t pay more then $10 USD with shipping and handling included for it. I’m not giving it 1 star because it works really well, but you can find another one online that works just as well that cost much less

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't Share EarPods This product probably works great for what it's intended for. However, I was looking for an adapter that would allow me to share two lighting EarPods on my iPad. The Apple Store clerk recommended this, and frankly there was nothing on the packaging that indicated your product wouldn't work. But, of course, it doesn't. We leave tomorrow & it's now too late to find an alternative. Unfortunately, we'll be retuning this when we get back. Again, I'm sure the product works fine -- it's just too bad the packaging wasn't more descriptive. (BTW, I'm giving this product 5 stars because I don't think it's fair to ding it for the reasons explained.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy I bought this product on June 14, 2018. It is June 26, 2018 and it has stopped working. I worked great until tonight. It is no longer working so I read reviews from other websites and it seems that hundreds are having the same problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Product Got this product as a warranty replacement because the original item I received was no longer available. Within a year this product stopped working. Bends to easily and cheaply made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Static while watching videos I bought this dongle and while it works great for music, when I’m watching videos it creates a horrible static sound that renders the video unwatchable.
Date published: 2018-04-17
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible item. this is the third replacement Unfortunately this is the only compatible apple product - this item does not work - and I use it every day for my job. it keeps shorting out - either the earphone stops working, or like today, the charging port stops working. unbelievable.
Date published: 2018-04-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great This product works great. However, I did not find it to be an essential item to have. To be honest it is already misplaced somewhere in my home.
