    Has anyone purchased and received one of these? If so, have you had any problems?

    Alternatively, if anyone is aware of a reliable lightning cable that is even less expensive, please let me know!

    Apple have protected the chip in the lightning cable for a reason...Personally I wouldn't risk a cheap knock off cable on my brand new phone or iPad.

    I'm wondering about some of the cheap lightning-to-30-pin adapters on eBay. At $10-12, they're pretty tempting.

    There's loads of suppliers on eBay now. If you check feedback on some, the buyers have commented that the cable works. Seems worth a try.

    I know some people will say its not worth the risk but I've never had problems with cheap eBay cables over the past 2 years. I need 3 ideally so not looking to pay £45
