This adapter was originally released for distribution in the European Union only, where it’s the law (that every mobile device support the Micro USB standard). I was lucky enough to have a random subscriber send me one, and have been loving it.

So, for those of you who complained that iOS products don’t support the Micro USB standard in any way, your argument is invalid.

I, for one, do not miss the days of fiddling with cables in the dark and having to know which way is up or down. Lightning has been an absolute godsend at any price.

  3. Micro USB isn’t reversible – and Lightning has been incredibly convenient (especially in the dark).
    If you’ve never used Lightning, you’re not speaking from experience – and, therefore, your opinion is only half-formed.

  4. When are we gonna make it so that all devices use the same plugs so that we only need one cable for all our devices?
