    It's the port where you plug in the charging cable.

    it is much smaller, then the charger, should there be another part to it? I paid £21 for it so I would be very upset if I have to pay out more!!

    Your iPad 3 won't work with the lightning adapter. You'd need a Camera Connection Kit.

    I don't suppose they are cheap, which ipad does the one I have just bought fit.

    Thanks for your info, I thought long and hard before paying out for the above, I should have asked for advice before buying, maybe I can sell it on EBay!

    Is it too late to return it for a refund? You could explain that you accidentally bought the wrong accessory.

    I think it is too late, it will teach me to check before I buy, as a 75 year young pensioner I am quite proud at mastering the iPad but pride does come before a fall.

    Once again thanks for all your help.

    The camera connection kit you need, costs $29.00 in the Apple online store.

    Thanks I now know which one to buy. I sold the Lightning Adapter Straight away on EBay so will now purchase the correct one.
