Calbe Jive dockXtender

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

Product Highlights:

  • compatible with an iPhone®, iPod®, or iPad®, using a Lightning™ connector
  • 2-tier shielding for audio and video signals to reduce interference
  • length: 2 feet
  • warranty: 60 days
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

What's in the Box:

  • 2' Lightning-connector extension cable

Lightning Connector Extension Cable: The Lightning dockXtender cable lets you connect your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad with Lightning connector to your iPod audio system's Lightning dock, without having it to remove it from its protective case. And because of its 2' length, it extends your Apple device from the iPod dock system for better control and operation.

Connectivity: The docXtender extension cable features a female Lightning connector on one end which plugs into your audio dock or charge station. On the other end is a male Lightning connector which plugs into your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad with a Lightning connector. The cable is 2' in length.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Nothing else would help!!! [ S  Feb 18, 2018 ]
Bought to extend the cable between my iPhone 7 and the 30-pin adapter that connects to the audio system in my 2011 Mini Cooper. This way I can play my Apple Music collection through the car stereo while mounting the iPhone on the dash to simultaneously use map features and other apps. [ Rosamund  Sep 25, 2017 ]
Making sure iPhone with case will fit in docking station. [ M  Nov 25, 2016 ]
I needed one. [ John  Apr 28, 2016 ]
Need to attach an offload drive to an iPhone 6s Plus in a big Otterbox case. [ Gail  Mar 18, 2016 ]
I need a way to be able to view my phone when it is plugged into my car. The connection is in my glove box. [ Lorna  Jan 30, 2016 ]
Your the only ones who sold these [ Todd  Jan 11, 2016 ]
Need to connect iPad pro to Macklie DL 1608 mixer [ S  Jan 06, 2016 ]
The apple HDMI adapter needed for appradio mode on pioneer appradios is only about 3 inches long... very difficult to make it discreet. This extension will allow for hidden cable management. [ David  Dec 24, 2015 ]
I have an otterbox case for iphone5s and didnt want to have to remove it to connect to the sounddock [ CALVIN  Dec 19, 2015 ]
Our I phone has a case on it. So to avoid taking the case off to connect to our Bose speaker and charger we need an dock extender. We purchased the short CabeJive connector and after about a year it stopped working correctly. It will not allow the phone to charge through the extender while playing. This drains the phone battery and has cause my wife from using our Bose speaker in the kitchen. Hopefully it was just a bad one. thanks. [ Douglas  Dec 10, 2015 ]

It connects to both I use it to extend my lightning cable in my truck and my dad uses it for a docking station since his phone has a case and can't fit on the docking station [ Dustin  May 07, 2015 ]
Yes. [ Brandon  May 07, 2015 ]
It extends any lightning cable. I use mine to extend the length of the cable to my Pioneer SPH-DA210 [ ROMERO  May 07, 2015 ]
It does extend the cord. [ Dennis  May 07, 2015 ]
It does connect to the male end of the lightning cable. I use it to extend my lightning cable in my car. [ DeWayne  May 07, 2015 ]
I would expect the cable to work as you've described. Unlike some male-female extension cables, this one seems to carry all the Lightning signals, but I should mention that the plastic connectors can be fragile. [ James  May 07, 2015 ]
I used it both to extend a cable or to connect to a dock station. Works well in both instances. [ Mike  May 07, 2015 ]
