Will it power a portable hard drive through the USB?

Bought one for £17.99 a few weeks ago from mymemory
This is a good price so hot from me.
Generally very good and reads most files on both apple and android
Pros: Easy to set up and use, reads about 85% of files
Cons: smallish battery, can only connect 3 devices a time, won't read all files and will show error message when there is glitch not a major problem for me but maybe for others
I would recommend this highly for £14.99,
Very tempted to buy another at this price as a gift

Will it power a portable hard drive through the USB?

Yes it will, it states that it will support hard drives upto 1 Tb
I tried it with both 1Tb and 2Tb and both worked but the more files on your hard drive the slower the files will show up,
Powering a portable hard drive will also reduce battery life,
I prefer to transfer files to a USB memory stick, I found this to be more reliable and get fewer errors

...won't read all files...

I haven't encountered any files it cannot stream / download to my iPad running IOS7. The MobileLite App is limited, however, based on Apps I already had on my iPad, MoliPlayer HD can play virtually any video format, & Documents (by Readdle) & GoodReader can download virtually any file type, from which the files may then be opened in many other Apps. Also, I've had no error messages or connectivity issues.

Heat added. Thought mine was a bargain at £17.99 but £14.99 is a steal.

Beat me to it........ been watching this on amazon for a while since it dropped to £23 or so, never spotted it at £17.99 last month...DoH!

anyway purchased , then came looking here and found it :)

Same price on the main site or the Ebay listing. Ebay gives 15 Nectar points, but if accessing the main site via TCB, the cashback available is 4.2%, so £0.63 discount, making the total cost only £14.36.

I'm really trying to resist buying this, I know I don't need it but it's so cool!

This product was working very well, until Kingston updated the app, now the mobile lite will not work at all and is useless. There has two further updates since, which has not made any difference , the product is still not working.
What a waste of money, don't buy this product until the app that runs it is sorted out.
Very disappointed :(

is this true?

Having reviewed this product after purchase , i will update now after using for a week , The product is great if you want to transfer files while you are away from any WiFi network , that is about it , if you have access to a WiFi or 3g network then don't waste your money , now that the price has increased even more of an insult.,
Firstly the app offered by Kingston was updated and no longer supports video, i received feed back from Kingston when i remarked on their poor testing procedure , i am not convinced that they really know what their problem is , basically it does not work and its their lack of testing that has caused this issue . having to pay for a better app from Antecea file connect.
which actually works better as you can can connect to any WiFi enabled pc/mac and view /transfer/ back up files to much bigger hard drives ,
also as far as IOS is concerned back up with any airport device works 100% better ,
So really i would save your money unless you need to transfer from your tablet or phone while you are in the middle of the Atlantic.
I have also read that Amazon have removed this from sale as they review the sale of goods , for not being fit for purpose , i wouldn't go that far as it does Work ,but having now worked out there are better ways to save files from tablets it is for a small market that as mentioned is great for being away from any network, but the app (MobileLite) must be updated A.S.A.P as the device will not work ,only with paid apps from other companies which is where i guess the problem lay.
KINGSTON , Get your app developers to learn what customers need and get it right before you sell them your products.
you make great products but you are being let down by sloppy work.

I purchased this a few weeks back when it was £17.99... Used the Kingston Mobilelite app to get it set up and get basic connectivity , since then I have been using an App called FileBrowser from the App Store. I have streamed videos, transferred all sorts of docs, photos .. Pretty much every type of file, without a problem, between my IPad, the MobileLite, my PC, my local NAS Drive, Dropbox and Google Drive without a hitch. I have to agree with the other commenters yes the Mobilelite app is not much up to much, but pair the Mobilelite device with a better app and it is a great solution for transferring files , and streaming videos, to up to 3 devices, I have 64GB SD card and 64GB Stubby USB stick plugged into it, even streamed some films from it to my Smart Sammy TV.

Just got one, cheers
#14
1800mah battery - that's really not much but enough for a charge if you get caught short. would obviously prevent you from using it to access storage wirelessly if you empty it but it's a handy feature to have.

i don't need one of these as i don't need wireless usb/memory card access but seems damned handy for iphone users.

I hope this does stream video its the main reason I bought it
#17
Yes, it streams video.
#18
I've managed to stream up to 4 devices, and if you don't have unlimited data on your phone plans, this is a great option of sharing movies you already own.
#19
Voted hot.

I bought one of these for £17.99 for viewing and backing up holiday snaps when abroad without needing a laptop.

Does it work? Yes and no.
It streams video perfectly to multiple devices at once - very popular with the kids on a three hour drive this weekend.
I can use it to transfer (copy or move) photos/video from SD card to USB stick fast using my iPhone 5s or iPad mini.
I can view photos from the SD card on my iPhone 5s.

But, it won't support my USB Toughdrive or an external drive enclosure - I've only managed to get USB sticks working.
Also, viewing pictures on my iPad mini causes the iOS app to crash/quit. It seems more stable if left alone to "soak up" all the photos in a folder before I view them, but it's flaky at best - this doesn't happen on my iPhone 5s.

The pros far outweigh the cons and I am optimistic Kingston will get the app fixed sooner or later, which is only an issue on older iOS hardware (as far as I can tell).

I've got the wi drive version of this with a built in 64gb ssd hard drive which is brilliant. Bought one of these too so can compare, hopefully will give the same performance

Doing exactly the same here.

Ordered. Thanks.

Has this got advantage over just a normal 10 pound multi card reader from say Kingstone?
Can I put a memory card in this from a digital camera and then transfer direct to my phone or ipad?
As in connect to it without needing an Internet connection?

When I go to the inlaws abroad, rather than bringing their memory stick back to my PC I can just take this and copy without Internet and bring photo 's back?

Thanks in advance.

Yes its wireless so you can pop your SD card into this and view the photos on a tablet. If your tablet support OTG then you can do this with a 99p OTG cable and USB card reader. The Kingston Mobilie USB card readers are note cheap but work well the USB3 ones are aroun £7

...connect to it without needing an Internet connection? .

Yes you can use this with no internet access. If you do have WiFi internet then this can be used to share that with units that connect to this over wireless.

Yes you can pop your media card into this unit direclty (SD) or use an adaptor if your card is not supported. Then copy the files to another USB storage device for backup or copies to share. You can do the same with Android devices with OTG support and 99p cable and free sofrware if rooted or paid software (NexusMediaConverter) otherwise.

For those interesting in streaming MKVs the review explained that the Web interface to this unit can be used (ie the URL of the movie) via nplayer (iOS) and VLC (Andriod). I notice this unit support NTFS essential for large files = >2gb
