Our take on the Apple iPod® Dock Connector to USB Cable

Use this Apple cable to hook up your iPod, iPhone®, or iPad® to the USB port of your computer for syncing and charging. You can also use it with various iPod accessories and power adapters that have a USB connection. The adapter features a 30-pin connector, and can be used with most docking iPods (not compatible with newer Lighting® connector Apple portables).
