Be sure to purchase the right lightening adapter for your iPhone 5. I mistakenly purchased the version of the adapter without the cord. The problem is, I can't plug it into my iPhone when the case is on the phone. And my case is kinda hard to get on and off. The version that has the cord should work fine for me since I've been able to charge my phone fine with the case on. So after waiting weeks, I've ordered the other version and will work on returning the little one.
