    Already knew this was coming. Now time to get some 3rd party cables too.

    Thanks for the link.

    I think I may pay the extra few bucks and get the lightning USB cables from apple. I'm wondering if using these adapters will be awkward when picking up/using the phone while plugged in.

    But will they work without that pesky little chip that apple puts in their new cables?

    Thanks! I'm sure a lot of iPhone 5 owners will be interested in the details.

    It's only a bullet if it doesn't work! This may be a $10 swedish massage!

    Hopefully they will make them smaller so they dont look like the giant middle fiinger Apple gave to us all.

    This is a pre-order? I went to the eBay listing and it's saying 'Estimated between Thu. Nov. 8 and Wed. Nov. 14' and pre-order in the listing. I'll probably order one anyways.

    Just saw this article and thought I'd share... Apparently someone did a teardown of the new Lightning cable and, long story short, there's a special chip inside the plug to enable the current to flow. Basically no knockoff cables or adapters (unless a third party can figure out what's so magical about this chip)...

    Unofficial Lightning cable won't charge iPhone 5, wire chip required

    I am sure, as with older cables, there will be a licensing thing going on to allow copies to be made.
