Wireless iOS/Android storage – your own portable cloud


Q: How to move files to or from your iOS or Android device
A: Kingston’ Wireless Family sets up a Wi-Fi SSID and allows transfers to and from any smart device to external storage – it will even recharge your smart device.

Independent world leader in memory products Kingston announced two additions to its Wireless family with MobileLite Wireless G3 and MobileLite Wireless Pro. In essence these are portable Wi-Fi AC dual band routers that can move data to and from any Wi-Fi equipped iOS and Android device, to and from external storage like USB Flash drives, all varieties of SD cards, or internal flash storage.

MobileLite Wireless G3 has a 5400 mAh battery and a 2A USB charger output. It also has a USB port and SD card slot to access files on a USB Flash drive or SD card from the smart device. Using an iOS or Android app users can transfer, backup or share photos, videos and other content without having to use a computer.

MobileLite Wireless Pro adds 64GB of internal memory and a larger 6700 mAh battery.

“MobileLite Wireless G3 and Pro are great for iOS and Android mobile device users on the go,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “We’ve increased the battery capacity for charging and introduced a new Pro version with on-board memory for even more convenient access to extra storage. Users no longer have to worry about having enough battery life or storage on their smartphones and tablets.”

MobileLite Wireless G3 and MobileLite Wireless Pro are backed by a two-year warranty and Kingston reliability.

MobileLite Wireless G3 [Pro in square brackets] specifications:

  • Storage: USB and SD – reads SD, SDHC, SDXC and microSD/microSDHC/microSDXC [+64GB flash]
  • Supported File Systems: FAT, FAT32, NTFS, exFAT

  • Rechargeable Battery: up to 16 [19] hours of continuous use; built-in Li-ion 5400 [6700] mAh battery with 3.8V 2.0A output maximum
  • Local Storage4: wirelessly transfer files to and from the MobileLite app and the MobileLite Wireless hardware
  • Camera Roll Support4: allows users to move photos and videos from their mobile device to MobileLite Wireless in order to free up space
  • Cable: USB to micro USB cable included

I have used previous versions with some success especially when on the go and away from a computer to act as a transfer intermediary. The Wi-Fi connection acts flawlessly and reasonable data transfer speeds are achieved over Dual Band AC. The apps are well thought out and easy to use - and you are not using valuable data allowances in backing up to the cloud.
