    I didn't see them in the US store. I did a quick Google search and saw that it was only for Europe. :(

    There are some sellers on eBay that sell them, but they are quite expensive at the moment.

    I'm still holding off on a bunch of 5 accessories until more comes out and prices go down...

    I would love to order this but is there a certain type of micro USB to use with this?

    Like volts & amps? I don't wanna get my phone fried.

    I remember hearing that you shouldn't use a blackberry charger for a droid just to give an example

    So that's converts to about $24 US dollars. The price is twice that on eBay right now.I found out why it's only available in Europe:

    "But why only in Europe?

    In 2010, the European Commission picked Micro-USB as the official standard, requiring that all smartphones available in Europe be compatible with the interface. Apple was able to get the okay for its 30-pin dock connector by offering a Mircro-USB adapter"

    So IPWarrior should buy a bunch of them and send them to all his friends here on the Forum so we have another option also! :ROFLMAO:

    BTW. What do they look like? Do they have the pigtail, or are they a direct connect like the $29 adaptor?

    So they may not have the same issue attaching to the iPhone with a case as the 30 pin to Lightening adapter?

    No, it looks like it's about the same size as the Lightning connector (it might be slightly larger just like the 0.2 m cable port is), so it should work with most, if not all, cases.

    So, for us perhaps less technically inclined, if Apple can achieve the same connectivity through a micro USB cable, why not just use the Europian and more generally utilized micro USB connector without having to use an adaptor?

    I'm from the UK and I've ordered two. If I were to buy you one, I could ship it.

    Thanks for the offer. I will keep that in mind in case I think I could use one later.

    Anyone knows of this will fit with a lifeproof fre on an iPhone 5?

    The lightning to 30 pin 0.2mm adapter fits with enough room to spare. I'm assuming this is smaller but I can't get any size info on it
