The reviews for this are awful. Please maintain some journalistic integrity and either share the facts about the quality, or don’t promote the product!


#3

It works absolutely fine in my car. I do not bother with other people’s reviews when my experience is otherwise. This will not change.


#4

Your site, your choice to endorse products or not. However the iPhone 7 is still stupid. The audio jack is not an obsolete connector no matter what Apple maintains.


#5

It might have been more tolerable to drop the audio jack if they put two lightning sockets instead of one. But they didn’t.


#6

I guess a spare lightning connectorvwould be more versatile but… Meh.


#7

Ok, then they could have redesigned their charging cable with a pass-thru lightning socket so you could plug in audio at the same time you charge.

Either idea eliminates the need for a special cable adapter


#8

If this doesn’t scream “trust our products”, I don’t know what does.


#9

I just returned one of these to Amazon. All of the similar products appear to share a flaw: there’s an intermittent short between the audio and power. It will produce horrible static in the audio and inconsistent power to your phone.

Still lovin’ my iPhone 5s.


#11

They sold 78 million of them last quarter, so I’d say most people don’t mind.


#12

yeah and facepalmbook just hit 1.8 billion


#13

Why don’t you just stop buying their bullshit? The only thing Apple is the best at anymore is selling a fake image.


#14

Q: Is it convenient for me if I always hang out?

A: Yes, I am an outgoing man and such a cable just good enough for me

Trust level +1
