If you're doing BT streaming of music, especially if are listening to a streaming service like Pandora, you battery will get zapped fast. Better to have Lightning cable transmitting the audio (vs. BT) and providing power at the same time.
Why do you need the cradle attachment? I'm using a normal lightening to USB cord and it charges my iphone while transmitting music. With the lack of Video or Ipod Out for the lightening port, I don't see the need for cradles unless your phone is running really hot and you want a fan.
