I kind of liked the Otterbox, but I'll never purchase another case through them again. My car has a 30 pin connector, which I got the short adapter from Apple. The hole on the bottom of the Defender looks like it was made for it, but when it is attached, the plastic actually bulges out. Also, the belt clip began to rip the rubber bumper.
So, I emailed them about it, being it seems that the case might be defective. I don't know how old the guy was that answered me, but I was under the impression that he was 12... from the attitude. From someone that bought multiple iPhone 4 cases from them, and pre-ordered the iPhone 5 case, I was shocked by the response I received.
When I could get the LifeProof case, I ordered it. Also picked up the wired adapter to work with the LifeProof case (would not work at all with the other adapter) and another USB cord to make a car charger (with a cigarette adapter). I'm extremely happy with the LifeProof case, even though a belt clip is something I really need with a case. It should be released early 2013.
