The Kingston MobileLite Wireless is an ingenious piece of kit and has become something that I carry with me at all times now. This 3-in-1 device is not just about being connected but more about having unlimited access to files and photos from your portable hard drive (and other storage devices), streaming content to multiple devices and backing up your mobile phone battery.
Confused? Let me break it down for you.
Portable Card Reader
The MobileLite Wireless works as a portable card reader to give you unlimited access to all of your data, anywhere you are. I have been using it with both a SD card and my external hard drive to access presentations for work. You can also store photographs, music, documents and more in the same way.
Wireless and Streaming
Using the MobileLite app, available on iOS and Android, content can be shared and stored to three devices at once. This is great for children on car journeys or if someone wants to watch a film in bed.
You can use the MobileLite unit to keep the power flowing without having to plug your phone or tablet into the wall. The battery life on my phone is shocking
because I'm addicted to Candy Crush Saga and keep checking my twitter account but because the MobileLite Wireless has a built-in 1800AH battery it can be used as a mobile device booster, which is the lifeline I was looking for.
With the MobileLite Wireless unit you get a USB lead and a SD card adaptor. At first, the unit seems very 'plasticky' and not very sturdy and I was disappointed not to actually receive a memory card with the unit. However, those thoughts have now been eradicated because of how useful the unit is and how easy it is to set up. It's been a lifesaver on many occasion when my mobile phone battery has been on its last legs (a regular occurrence) and it also means that I don't have to clog my mobile phone or tablet up with photos and videos. This is great because I don't use up valuable memory space but also if I ever lost my phone (or tablet) or had it stolen then there are less personal pictures on there.
The RRP at the time of this review was £49.99 on Amazon.
