The 0.2 m adapter is the same thing, but if you have too short of a cord, you can add 7.8 inches to the cable with this adapter.

For example: My car's iPod hookup is a factory connection from Nissan, so I cannot buy a longer cable to use. This adapter will make that cable longer for me. And since I know Nissan will not have this cable available with a lightning plug for my '09 Maxima (even if they did, it would probably be like $60), I will need to get an adapter.

The first one is all enclosed in one unit.

They do the same thing..

the corded one seems more versatile.

Plus it'll be nice to use 30 pin docks but not dock them

Yes. When using the non corded one with the case on, depending on the case, the new connector might not slide in completely. So, I ordered the one with cable.

Or... it could be that that particular individual's 0.2 cable adapter was defective.

We should hold off on assumptions until that person tries a replacement.
