    Is Apple going to be the only one to bring out an AV out lead for lightning?

    Kids have minis and I have an iPhone 5. We won't use the AV lead much, just when in hotels really for a bit movie watching and so far the only one I've seen is the official Spple one at £40, which is a little excessive for our needs.

    Trouble is when it comes to anything that goes into the power socket of the iPad you can never be too sure.
    I've read many a user who after having purchased a 'cheepy' connector then went on to report his iPad would not charge.
    As such when it comes to that connector I only purchase those that are official Apple products.

    Really!!... and thinking about that it would make perfect sense to protect their TV's.
    I must have picked the ones who don't seem to care.

    I used to carry an ipad to hdmi lead around with me and stay away at least one or two nights most weeks - don't think I used it more than twice

    I usually stay in chain hotels, so they have their own content delivery systems. But even the smaller hotels have started to lock their TVs down now.
