No USB

I'm sure that Belkin was not allowed to have a separate USB/Lighting cable per Apple's wishes. I'm guessing Apple has these cables on lock down. Just my thoughts.

I however already had a Belkin Micro USB/Car port and just bought an additional Lighting cable from Apple. Still have my other 30 Pin USB cable for my Girlfriends 4s.

Wow, I thought Apples accessories were pricey, that dock doesn't even include a lightning cable and is still $29.

This is what I use...I have two lighting cables (iP5 and Mini) and I used one in my car, and just one in the house.

Hmmmm... That Lightning connector on the car charger (as pictured) looks way too big to fit through the opening on my iPhone 5's case (a Switcheasy Tones)...

Just a heads up if it isnt already mentioned - the dock does NOT include a cable. You have to use an Apple lightning cable.

So my work phone was plugged into that, my personal phone (the iPhone 5) was plugged into the lightning cable, and my girlfriends iPhone 4S was plugged into the 30-Pin cable attached to the second USB port in the adapter.

It can charge from both USB ports at the same time.

Really like the dock. Hopefully they are not too long in bringing out one for the iPad mini.

I would guess that JHankwitz was relaxed when he made a comment directed at iGrip. It seemed to be a valid comment which you took personally and then asked for a moderator to take care of.

You need to relax and understand that not all comments on Internet sites are going to be 100% cheerful and positive. JHankwitz could have been a lot more negative with his comment if he wanted to attack iGrip (again, not even directed at you)

This comes from the person calling someone a "prick"? What was the tone of that text? Would he appreciate the attitude?

the usb ported ones.

I think its something to do with the wattage not being delivered into the cable efficiently. thats why you always buy specific car chargers, not the usb plug in ones

Makes no sense to get a dedicated car charger. Get the $19 lighting cable and any usb 12V adapter. When you need to charge your ipod or older iDevice, pull out lighting, put in 99 cent 30 pin cable. Done deal.

You couldn't be more wrong. Any name brand-not 99 cent generic-will work fine. 1 amp is what you want to look for. The quality of the part is what had caused problems with car and home chargers-again, stay away from no name chargers and you are fine. Belkin and Griffin make good products.

How hard is it to spell Lightning? Seriously?? Light. Ning.

This has got to be the most misspelled word on MR right now, ever since the iP5 launch.

What sort of a response is this? How about I just go to eBay and buy a cheaper one instead?

It's nice to see accessories finally emerging but that dock holds the phone too high because it has to pass through Apples cable and that is rubbish.
