Griffin

Griffin has produced a veritable cornucopia of Lightning USB syncing and charging cables. The 2' USB to Lightning Cable (£13) is a straight USB Lightning cable; the 3' USB to Lightning Cable (£15) is the same, but 12 inches longer; the 4' Coiled USB to Lightning Cable (£20) is a springy cable that extends to 48 inches at maximum; and the 10' USB to Lightning Cable is a very, very long sync-and-charge cable (£25).

JBL

JBL was first to the punch on Lightning speaker docks, and the OnBeat Venue Lightning ($300) is the larger and more feature-packed of the two, offering Bluetooth wireless streaming, as well as letting you dock your iPhone 5, fifth-generation iPod touch, iPad mini or 2012 iPod nano.

The OnBeat Micro (£60) is the more space-friendly option, letting you dock your iPhone 5, new iPod touch or 2012 iPod nano to charge them and play music, but also take it away with you to listen to, thanks to its rechargeable battery.

GEAR4

GEAR4 offers the Lightning HomeCharger (£25) for charging your device from the mains, but its 5W output means it's only suited to the iPhone 5, fifth-generation iPod touch, 2012 iPod nano and iPad mini.

You can get versions for the UK, EU, USA and Australia/New Zealand. There's also the InCar SOLO Charger (£25) which offers exactly the same for your car, down to the 5W limitation.

Gear4's Lightning Dock (£35) is the first charging and syncing dock for iPhone 5 and fifth-generation iPod touch that actually includes a Lightning connector. Unlike Belkin's offering, though, there's no audio-jack pass through.
