Granted, you can probably charge your device while it’s in the case in many circumstances, but often not when you are using Apple’s Lightning adapter with an old 30-pin cable. I don’t know why, but Apple’s Lightning adapter is as wide as the old 30-pin adapter, and that big chunk of plastic doesn’t often fit into the small openings many cases have for the tiny Lightning plug. The Apple’s 8-Pin Lightning Male to Female Adapter from USBFever is a female-to-male adapter that’s less than 0.5″ wide (10.8mm, to be exact), so it fits where Apple’s Lightning adapter often doesn’t. It’s $6.99.
