I’m using an iPhone 7… which means that I only have a lightning port which I’ve to choose to use for charging OR for music … else I’ve to get an adapter that would allow me to charge and listen to music at the same time.
I usually goes with the dual lightning port adapter because then I can have the option to use the inline-remote and make phone calls. Those adapter with a lightning port and a 3.5mm audio jack, usually are only capable of letting you listen to music and the remote and microphone on the earphone won’t work!
I was choosing over a cheap compatible one or a MFI “authentic” one … and after reading reviews, I decided to go for the cheaper choice as I’ve read reviews that even the MFI ones doesn’t last.
So I’ve gotten a bunch of these adapters … some lasted few months, some few weeks, some just days … -_- It’s either it stopping working totally or one of the function (usually the audio) stop functioning and you end up “blasting” your music accidentally.
I really wonder, why they just couldn’t last? Even the MFI one didn’t survive over 6 months according to some reviews!
Do you use adapter of any kind?
How long does yours last?
less than 1 week
More than 6 months

They do not last because people who make them do want us to spend and spend.
I do use these but they also awhile. Good to see you!!
Thanks Carol, good to see you too!!
These adaptors does get quite annoying!
i hope they last longer!!
But now I’m just buying many spares :}
the frustration of those adapters is huge! i get frustrated with them all the time.
Yeah and the worst is when you realised something more expensive just last a little longer!
My friend had one of those MFI ones and she said they aren’t worth it! She say it better buying a bunch of those cheaper onesI! At least their total duration may add up to be longer LOL!
She had switched to Android (not sure if she face the same problems with Type-C adapters not though LOL)
i have not had that issue but it can be frustrating.
the other option is to reinforce the weaker parts of the adapter with duct tape!
Ah, thanks, I might try that since I’ve a bunch of the spoilt ones laying around “0
i have extended the life of many with duct tape!
