Review: RAVPower’s Wireless Card and USB Flash Drive Reader – RP-WD01

I’m stoked to see more gadgets like this. Getting files on and off our tablets and phones can be painful. As much as these devices claim autonomy, often we still need to resort to plugging them into proper computers. Wireless drives afford us more flexibility in handling our mobile data, allowing us to build portable clouds, and providing us easier solutions for sharing media with other people. Let’s take a look at RAVPower’s entry into this gadget class with the RP-WD01.

I need to use my RAVPOWER with my iPad 2 and a Surface 3 Pro. I have a 2Tb external HD and SM cards with my data. Is it necessary a special format? Now I can not see images but a single icon in all of them, nor I can see MP4 or read my files. Can access them but not see its content.

1. As a photographer I’m just looking to transfer files from my SD card to a USB drive. I read somewhere that the mobilelite will only transfer JPEG files not RAW files, is that true?
2. Can the either device transfer files directly from the SD drive to the USB drive?

Do you have to be connected to the wifi for this to work such as at home, or does the ravpower creates a hotspot for you to use on the go?

markreif1 says:

Question: I drive around with a D Turbo feeding an internet signal to a laptop, an itouch, and a an ICON. I have a GN4 feeding music via BT and Transcend OTG connector that’s housing a 256GB SD card filled with tunes to the head unit. Will this device allow me to create the NAS /hub/music server that I’d like to feed to the head unit with my entire music collection of 850GB on a USB Hard drive connected to the laptop or to this device itself -using the only internet I have either through the Turbo or the GN4?

Does this work on an iPad Air 2

Devshi Babaria says:

Dear Juan Bagnell, Nice Demo with good English pronunciation. Just like OTG does such Mobile Smartphone should be compatible with RP-WD01 then only its function or any Smartphone can access from RP-WD01 to Tablets or Smartphone ?
