    How many of you have ordered a Lightning Adapter or spare Lightning Cable and why? Just curious as to why you are opting for one or the other or both. What accessories are you dying to use with your iPhone 5 that requires the adapter.

    If you fall in the neither category, why are you taking a pass on adapters/extra cables?

    I'll be getting one so I can just keep one connected to my computer and another for charging in a different location and travel.

    But, first things first -- I WANT MY iPHONE 5 (s)... and I want them right now. :mad:

    No choice for me. I don't want to carry around the single cable that came with the phone. Got 4 adapters.

    Same here. I need a charger at home at work and at job 2. I never want my battery below 70%! OCD thing I guess.

    I ordered the lightning to USB to have a charger at work, and the lightning to 30 pin adapter for the iHome stereo cable in my swagger wagon. Hopefully they both ship soon!

    I bought a cable. Too much hassle carrying one cable back and forth.

    I picked up a couple extra cables, just for the car, and misc. But, I would still like to order an adapter to use on some of my old longer aftermarket cords.

    Adapter should soon be on the way. I want to use it for my car charger. It shows getting ready to ship, by the way. Apple took the money today.

    Got only one adaptor, I'll switch it between car and work and keep my original charger at home.

    I bought two additional cables. One for truck ( I have a scosche lighter charger with 2 USB inputs-works great) and another for the office. I'll be buying an adapter as well. My pioneer Avic z120 Nav system works so well with this phone and it will probably be several months before they have a lightning cable. Also need one to dock with my a/v system at home.

    I'll be getting at least one adapter and maybe one cable too. Would like to hook my phone back up to my stereo system and be able to charge in my truck.

    Ordered 2 adapters, one is for my wife. We both have iPhone alarm docks that we would like to start using again. I'll eventually pick up more cables and one more adapter for my wife's car.

    I ordered one cable to charge in my car(connects via Bluetooth for music) and one adapter for my home theater. It has a dock that connected to the unit and the cool part is the remote controls the iPhone/iPod to Change songs/photos on the t.v.

    I already had bought 2 extra cables before the phones where up for pre order. I had an adapter too, but Apple had backordered that one, when the pre orders went through (I was not happy so I caceled that item)
    The 2 extras are for the car (we have 2 iPhone 5s). I also got an USB extender cable for the back seat. Apples is way to short.
    We will need adventuall get an adapter
    We have a dock speaker it's hubbies and he has the 4s
    I rather try to get new accessories with wireless technologies.
    Anyway with Apple not allowing anyone yet to make some we are limited on our options.
    I am disappointed Apple had no insight on this matter. NO CAR CHARGER ?

    Purchased 2 lightning cables to keep at work and in the car (hate dragging cable around). I was thinking about purchasing an adapter for my Logitech music dock, but realized its pretty old and cost me $100 (2-3 years ago). So instead of paying $30 for an adapter, I'm going to wait for a new $100 music dock

    Oh and I purchased one of these - black with backing.
