    Is there an adapter where I can charge a 30 pin device, using lightning cable?

    Sort of a 30 pin to lightning port / dongle but backwards?

    We have iphone 5s and ipad minis for daily use, but we have a "legacy" iphone4 and ipad2 that we use sometimes...

    Thanks.

    Chinese sellers on eBay sell these dongles for like 3-4 bucks.

    30 pin cables have come so low in price now, I recommend you just buy a new MFi 30 pin cable like these:

    Reason is I have one ipad2 and two newer iPhones and iPads so we want to have one sync charge cable at various parts of the house, thus the need for this "backward" adapter.
