I have been using the bad elf for a couple of years. It is an amazing little gadget.
Yes it won't work with some cases and you may need an extension.
Regarding the charging issue you may need to make a change to the configuration of the Elf - by default the Bad Elf Direct Connect for the Lightning socket only allows 1A through to the connected iOS device. Your iPad is going to need more - you can find how to make this change here: https://badelf.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/5000704053-t...
I do agree lighting cable would be better but they supplied the micro USB with mine so I was ok with it.
I have my iPad mounted in a piece of machinery and keep the charge cable constantly plugged in to it.
