Because of a number of restrictions in mobile devices on light very unusual devices began to appear. For example, external stores with the integrated Wi-fi module to which it is easy to be connected far off by means of the same iPad or iPhone. And it is possible though what external HDD to connect by means of cunning pieces, like Hyper Drive iUSBPort. But the present guest in the person of Kingston MobileLite Wireless appeared the most universal device of that sort in addition the most small-sized. Not including that, this massive tool against the "trolls" who are crying out that it is impossible to connect a flash card or a memory card to iPad and iPhone, and to them for 3000 rub — it is possible for hot loved Chinese tablet.
Will be located in though what pocket
Kingston MobileLite Wireless does not strike imagination with a set of delivery and, on the 1st look, not especially there is a lot of at it functions. But there is a mass of schemes of use of that is available, the main thing — a little натужить crinkles and to think, than we at present and will be engaged. And we will begin novelty research with external shape.
The device in a small-sized cardboard box, снутри the cable of micro-USB and an adapter with card microSD on full-size SD is which except MobileLite Wireless is delivered. On dimensions remembers phone (125 x 60 x 16,6 mm), on weight — too (98 g). It is executed from convenient opaque plastic of dark and grayish color. On the 1st look it seems that a lobby панелька iron, but it too plastic.
From governing bodies there is only one button of a food on a lateral side near light-emitting diodes, and here in the device it is more than any technical openings.
Namely, there is an USB port for connection flash – is driving, external HDD stores and additional charge of portable devices:
Yes, the accumulator in capacity is built in Kingston MobileLite Wireless 1800 мАч. It provides a food by the attached external HDD, to the built-in wireless module about which it is sensitive later, and to phone if that was absolutely discharged. It is completely possible to charge from scratch iPhone, and here a tablet the hero of the review to charge it is incapable, there is no capacity.
Near USB port micro-USB which is applied to additional charge of a device or its use as a computer wire kardrider is placed also.
On a return side the socket for the SD, SDHC and SDXC cards hid. Through a complete adapter it is possible to use cards of microSD, microSDHC and microSDXC.
By the way, existence of the built-in kardrider does Kingston MobileLite Wireless by more multipurpose device of that sort. Other analogs usually contain only USB port.
Small giant of big file distribution
At the expense of composition of hardware lines of Kingston MobileLite Wireless and restrictions of modern tablets and phones the considered device can be ranked as the category "Must Have" of devices. In other words such it is better to have in a personal EDC set if you povsevremenno use iOS-or the Android-device.
About what restrictions speech? For example, restrictions in a disk place. In iPhone and iPad сызвека there was no built-in slot for memory cards. In almost all modern Android-devices, by the way, too: Nexus 4, Nexus 7, HTC One — the list can be continued. With the USB Host function (connection of external USB devices) at many modern "Robots" too discrepancy.
Partly restrictions of iOS-devices manage by means of Camera Connection Kit, but without a dzheylbreyka it only work with a photo.
Here also Kingston MobileLite Wireless which can be called actually uncompromising decision, but on everything one after another is required.
The device contains the Wi-fi module 802.11n, and for communication with mobile devices does the wireless MobileLiteWireless network which is not protected in the beginning by any password, but through the firm appendix [iTunes link] it is possible to establish it (enciphering according to the WPA2 protocol) is supported.
At once through Wi-Fi to it are connected to the 3rd devices which will receive files independently from each other. Not including if in the house already there is a Wi-fi network on which the Web is distributed, through MobileLite Wireless it is possible to embody through connection — enough in settings of an aaplet to find this network, to click on it and to enter the password as required. Finally you will get at once access to the Network and to a content on memory cards and a flash-drayvakh. Even phone additional charge without troubles is carried out in the course of depicted above actions.
It should be noted that the integrated accumulator provides MobileLite Wireless till 5 o’clock continuous work in a data exchange mode with one external device. As to connected stores, file systems FAT, FAT32, NTFS and exFAT are supported.
It everything abruptly, but what sense from a device actually? You understand, options of its introduction weight and from time to time it is capable to help out especially seriously.
The mobile appendix for iOS and Android — Kingston MobileLite — allows both to look through files on the attached sources, and to copy them on the mobile device. In a case with their "Robot" it is possible to copy in principle anywhere in memory of phone or a tablet. And here as to iOS, the appendix has the allocated place limited only to quantity of free memory in iPhone or iPad. Difference from Android that access to the majority of files in this space can be executed only through an unusual aaplet or to throw off them on the personal computer through iTunes. The photo is simple for copying in "Gallery".
Nevertheless, it is enough of it in a situation, for example, when it is necessary to copy any files from the SD card urgently. Let’s say there was a lung, but multiple-valued road accident and your video registrar everything fixed. Representatives of the power adore in such cases to borrow cards from devices «for clarification of circumstances» so to speak after that not the fact that the necessary files on SD remain. But we are not lost and while the companion in shoulder straps did not reach the car, fast we copy the necessary files through Kingston MobileLite Wireless in iPhone or iPad. Speed on the average 2-3 Mbps, in other words, on saving of suitable files will be necessary less than a minute or 2.
Still a situation — it is necessary to throw off urgently to the companion in the field from a memory card of the camera of a photo, here only the computer with itself is not present. The mobile kardrider will help out and in that situation, thus is not indispensable on the mobile phone to copy, it is possible and to dump on a flash card. I will repeat, the appendix supports any operations on copying and transfer of data, regardless of a platform, plus work with folders.
But more necessary counter of MobileLite Wireless — it, of course, possibility of viewing of media files from external stores.
How many time there was such situation when practically at the last minute you gather to a trip, run – skipping skip to a taxi, at the last minute are in time on a train, settle down, get iPad and remember that is ordinary forgot to throw in the device the films downloaded for a trip and TV series. Is even more problematic, if memory in the device has enough and the maximum suffices it on pair of novelties.
Not failure, but on a flash card is already 32 or 64 GB of memory, there much that will be located. Besides the mobile client of MobileLite Wireless is not limited in media formats and will reproduce everything that the operating system supports.
It is sure, certain companions at present derisively smile and are ready to scribble the comment that iOS of nothing including a MP3, AAC, and MOV does not support M4V, and loaded from the loved portal «100500 – films – on – to a sphere» files is ordinary will not be reproduced. Are mistaken, esteemed. In iOS already long since there is no difficulty to reproduce any media formats through extraneous players. The same AVPlayer, for example "twists" everything that contains video, including files with an AC3 sound. And the MobileLite Wireless appendix without troubles allows to open the file from the attached memory card or the USB store in an extraneous player.
So safely we dump loaded кинища on a flash card and we look them on the way through a wireless device. Ah and — a charge аккума the product of Kingston will suffice at most on three films. Well, external аккумов still nobody cancelled. Momax iPower Turbo will manage to charge it from scratch time eight.
I wish to note also that, in other words, the films acquired in iTunes or TV series, too it is possible to reproduce the DRM protected content dumped on the external store through a device. But in this case it is necessary to work via the web interface and the mobile browser (in an address line it is necessary to enter mobilelite.home) though it on the abilities and external shape not especially differs from the mobile client.
On my moderate look, Kingston MobileLite Wireless — it not simply necessary device. Each active user of the iOS-device who quite often happens on a trip should have that and likes something to have a look in a way. Well and in mass of other situations the device is capable to help out seriously. The approximate price of a novelty — $65.
