Is there any accessory which would let me charge my iPhone and listen to 3.5 mm headphones at the same time

Hardware & Accessories

Hi, I know there is a 3.5 mm to lightning port converter, but that won't let me charge my phone at the same time as I'm using the headphones.
Is there anything that will do both.

I have such a device. I have no idea what it's called because I got it some time ago from Amazon. It has a lightning cable to connect to my phone, and then a port to plug a lightning power cable into, and a 3.5 jack for audio. I wish I could give you a name, but perhaps knowing it exists will help you continue your search.

Just to mention, if you have a wireless charging capable iPhone, such as 8 or newer, you can set it on a wireless pad and plug in the lightning dongle. There are even portable power banks with Qi charging. Or use the adapter the first commenter mentioned.

You can find the Belkin RockstarLightning Audio + Charge on I use this device and it works very well. The product is sturdy and well-built, as well. Highly recommended
