    Just bought the Apple lightning to 30pin adapter cable, the one with the short lead. Bought it from a high street store... noticed the lightning plug doesn't have the small indents on the sides and therefore doesn't "click" into the iphone 5 port, it kinda just pushes in.

    Anyone else noticed this? Or is my lead sub standard?

    Did you buy the apple one, i bought a knockoff and it is not the same as the apple one.

    Can someone with the official apple one verify that it will both charge and sync.

    Yes it is just a different way to accomplish the same thing and you get to spend $10 more to boot.

    It's definitely not the Apple adapter. Always consider where you're buying from. It may be handy for use with a dock.

    Apple can:

    Yup. For those that need a cable solution. The adapter isn't suited for all situations.
