    hello all,

    just bought an iphone 5s. This is first time owning an apple product since my old ipod 4th gen.

    So my issue is that I have a bunch of old ipod 4th gen charging cables (the 30 pin ones) that i bought off ebay for about $3 a pop. I've since read that cheap cables can often (unbeknownst by me back then) fry one's phone and/or battery. Would this risk be negated for my new iphone 5s if i bought an official Apple 30-pin-to-lightning-cable adapter?

    It also says that video output would not be supported by this adapter. Would this mean that I would be unable to upload videos from my laptop's itunes to my iphone, or download recorded videos from my iphone, using this adapter?

    I recommend you do not get any generic or knock off product for your iPhone 5s. Especially when it comes to charging.
    I recommend you get this:
    Pawtec Premium Lightning to USB Charge and Sync Cable Apple MFi Certified 3.3 Feet/1Meter for iPhone 5S 5C iPad Mini Air iPod (Jet Black)
    [Apple MFI Certified] iXCC Lightning Cable 3ft (Three Feet) Element Series 8 pin USB SYNC Cable Charger Cord for Apple iPhone 5 / 5s / 5c / iPod 7 / iPad Mini / Retina / iPad 4 / iPad Air [White]
