Written By Manfred F, Connecticut on Monday, March 16, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Does exactly what it is supposed to do, which is allowing iPhones 5 or 6 to be charged with devices like an iHome, Bose or Sony radio/clock or any other docking station without removing a protective case of the phone.

Pros: Protective cases can stay on during charging.

Cons: With the supplied small plastic height adapter used the phone barely makes contact with the charger and must be pushed down and checked as to whether contact has been established and it is actually charging. Also, the phone is elevated by 1/2 inch with the adapter; therefore some low support bars in the back will not provide support any longer; this means the phone is basically held up by the lightning adapter and not so stable anymore.

Works for LifeProof & Otterbox

Written By Tim A, Alabama on Sunday, February 08, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought 3 of these for my kids. Two of them have an iPhone 5 with a LifeProof as and one has a 5th generation iPod Touch with an OtterBox case. All of them have an iHome clock radio. This enables all of them to dock with the case on.

My daughters iPhone had been dropped in water prior to her using the LifeProof case and her phone would only work in the dock backwards. The water had apparently damaged her lightning port. Amazingly, with this adapter, she can now dock her phone in her iHome facing forwards.

Pros: Works well for docking with big cases.

Cons: When pulled out, occasionally, instead of the iPhone disconnecting from the adapter, the adapter will pull out with the iPhone. My son experienced this. It's a minor issue though as it can be avoided easily by using two hands.

CableJive adapter is Awesome!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have done quite a bit of research trying to find an adapter for my iHome and my daughters that would be able to charge our iphones with the case on and also be able to listen to the audio of iHome with music on our iPhones. This is the only product I have found that does both! I gave it to my daughter for Christmas and she was so happy to receive this as she had been looking for an adaptor as well. Very difficult to find and this one works perfectly!! Great price too! We will spread the word that Crutchfield has this product! Thank you Crutchfield!

Pros: does what it says it will do charges iPhone with case on Listen thru iHome audio when iPhone attached and charges at same time thru dockiing station!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Haven't found a case it will not fit in and doesn't affect sound quality. I do get the message about it being not a supported accessory sometimes. Never affect charging or sound quality and doesn't cause that message to come up all the time. I use it for both my IPad Air and IPhone 5.
