Of all the objects you dreamed of collecting, iPhone cords and chargers were not on your list. With the addition of an iPhone 4 to iPhone 5 charger adapter, you can continue to use these cables on your newer smartphone. This means that even with the lightning connector on the iPhone 5 smartphone, you do not need to toss your accumulated cords and cables in the trash. The iPhone 5 charger adapter 8 pin to 30 pin cable offers an 8 pin male connector on one end and a 30 pin female connector on the other so you can plug your existing iPhone 4 charging cable into the 30 pin end and then connect the 8 pin end to your iPhone 5. Purchasing an iPhone 4 to iPhone 5 charger adapter also means you do not have to purchase new cables for your car, work, and anywhere else you stash a spare charger. You can find the iPhone 5 charger adapter cable on eBay, so you can charge every generation of the device.
