Card Readers

  • This mobile-ready reader eliminates the need to carry additional USB transfer cables and the typical wait for Bluetooth® technology slow file transfers between phones and PCs. It also replaces your SD card adapter, since the microSD card fits directly into the reader. When in use, the microSD Card Reader appears as a drive letter (i.e., E:\) and data transfer is as simple as drag and drop. Use the reader with a microSD/microSDHC/microSDXC card to get the storage capacity for a variety of helpful transfers, or acquire content to side load to your phone, including:

    • Backing up your friends', relatives' or business contact information when you change phones
    • Moving the digital music library stored on your PC for use on your phone to upload to the web without using additional network minutes
    • Downloading new mobile applications on your PC for use on your phone without using network time.

    The reader is backed by a two-year warranty and Kingston's legendary service and support. It has an included keychain, so you can hang it from your phone for the convenient solution you need to complement your mobile lifestyle.

    Store your entire mobile life — photos, songs, text messages, video clips, personal information — on a microSD/microSDHC/microSDXC card, then work with it across device platforms seamlessly with the microSD Card Reader.
