Do cheap iPad lightning to USB adapters (from websites such as eBay) work or can a get a genuine Apple adapter for a lower price somewhere? I do not want to pay at least $39 AUD for one. My iPad mini is jailbroken and I wish to use one to symlink apps to a USB flash drive because I only have a 16GB model and I'm always trying to find things to delete to free up space. Is it worth the money for an Apple branded adapter?

The reason the adapters from apple have such a high price is because the product have a chip inside that will make sure the product keeps working. Cheaper product often don't have such a chip. It is possible that those products work, but they can stop working at a random time.

There are products from other companies that are also supported by apple because they pay a licence to develop such products.

Every product that has the "made for iPod, iPad and iPhone" logo on it's cover are supported by apple.
