Check out the Geeks iPhone 5 Lightning Connector Product Review!

Find great iPhone 5 accessories (minus the Lightning Connector for now)

Hey Geeks. DodgerGeek here with AccessoryGeeks.com. Now, you might be wondering, why is this section empty? Where are all the lightning connectors? WHY OH HAVEN’T YOU UPDATED YOU LAZIES!!

Well, we would love to except we don’t have any in yet. Yup. Apple has kept a tight reign on their lightning connectors. There is a whole process that a company needs to go through to get approved just to manufacture these new connectors. I won’t bore you with the details but I will say that it is pretty difficult.

These new lightning connectors are noticeably different than previous models. The previous connector had 30 pins. So naturally, it was wider. This new lightning technology has an eight-signal design. It is more compact and reversible. It doesn’t matter which way you insert the connector, it will work both directions. It’s a great concept except for the fact that everyone and their grandma’s (literally) have the 30 pin connectors.

So, unfortunately, we will not be carrying the lightning connector for a while. We promise that as soon as we get our hand on approved connectors, we will let you know.

Until then, it looks like you will have to make do with what apple gave you. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused!
