Our take on the CableJive dockXtender

by Ralph Graves

The CableJive dockXtender makes it easier to use your iPhone or iPad with a dock. The cable has a female Lightning connector that plugs into your dock, and a male Lightning connector for your device.

Convenient connections

The dockXtender's plug is slim enough to fit through the opening of almost any iPhone 5/5S case. So you can leave your iPhone in its case as you dock and sync it. Most docks have recessed plugs, which won't work with an iPad. The dockXtender takes care of that problem, letting you connect your iPad to the dock.

Quality construction

The dockXtender allows full functionality, the same as if your device was plugged directly into the dock. The connectors' rugged build ensures they'll hold up to daily use. And the cable puts all the video and audio signals on a shielded path to prevent interference from data and other signals traveling through the dockXtender

Great cable extension

Written By Corey D, Evansville, Indiana on Saturday, September 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The cable is very well made overall. The ends are a bit bulky compared to the genuine Apple cable. I have been using the extender for about a month and it has held up very well so far. I can't really complain about the quality of the cable but more about the length. It is rather short. I currently run a apple lightning cable from the back of my receiver under the center console and out by my seat belt buckle. The apple cable stops right as I exit under the center console so I have to come up about 8 inches to reach the top. I therefore only get about a foot of cable to move around with. It works for my setup currently but if I redesign my layout I will need more cable.
Pros:
Works great as an extender going through the apple digital av adapter. Thick cable design so it won't break down quickly with everyday use.
Cons:
A Little Short. Bulky on the ends meaning depending on your case, this may not fit.
