Ruark develops lightning adapter for existing iPod docks
Ruark Audio has come up with a neat solution for customers who own one of its existing docks with the old Apple 30-pin connector, but who now have a new iPhone/iPod/iPad with the smaller Lightning connector.
Called the Lightning Adapter Support (LAS), the device allows Ruark's R2i and R4i docks to work with new-generation iDevices. It combines the old 30-pin connector inside its casing with a polished stainless steel support bar to reduce strain on the connector.
The Apple Lightning to 30-pin adapter then slots in the top of the LAS, with the iDevice connecting on top.
Customers will be able to buy the Ruark adapter for £7.99 from Ruark Audio dealers from february. The Apple Lightning adapter costs £25.
