My this years resolution is to try to atleast open the one i bought a year or two ago
I've got the older version of this and it performs really well. This is a really good price for the newer one.
If anybody is eyeing up the older version (which i presume will be a little cheaper) i created a review video on it.

Great price and very tempted for summer hols just for back up capability of photos
Tempted but I'm going minimalist
Been looking for one of these for a while. Can anyone recommend a DLNA player to pair with it while travelling for a hotel TV? Ideally one that doesn't need an internet connection..... I have a firestick but think you need an internet connection for access to the home menu apps
I bought this recently as my original filehub was confiscated when some muppet left it in my hold luggage. You can configure this filehub to connect to a wifi source so when you connect your phone/other it acts as a router as well as a source for media. This may help your fire stick to work.

... in all some great upgrades on the previous version. The silver lining to my loss.

Sorey to hear that, but, I'm curious, you can't have this in your hand language when travelling then?, or ...

As I'm thinking to take this exact same thing with me later on this Year when I travel out of the Country too. :-)

Or would it be best advisable to just stick this thing into my suitcase instead, and be simply done with it, or whatever?, lol, thanx.

Looks great and have alway wanted one however do I need it?

Can i use this as a personal cloud storage which I can backup to and have access to from anywhere from my devices?
This is a superb gadget, very handy. Use when travelling on business and with family - stream and share a single internet connection

Haven’t used a firestick in a while but you used to be able to launch apps from settings/application menu & then use supported apps on a local connection. However if you just want to play stored media files you might be better off putting them on a sd card, usb stick etc & using a simple media player box like a Sumvision Cyclone Micro.

It is the lithium batteries and hold language that is not allowed. I once caught a flight from Jeju island in Korea and left my equivalent really small Hootoo device with only a 300o maH battery in my hold bag. Just before I boarded the flight a guy ran up and give it to me. They managed to detect it on the scanners and find it wrapped up in my hold luggage and give it back which is quite an impressive feat.

I knew it was supposed to be in my carryon but I had left it in my hold luggage many times before.

Thanks for listing.
I got one of these to take to Borneo with me on holiday - backed photos up on it to a variety of USB devices to save taking a laptop with me.. I'm not sure what else it does but I'm sure I'll work it out eventually!! It did what I needed to

Lol, same!!! :-)
Recently saw this on RandomFrankP's tech channel and thought it was nifty. Glad I waited and scored this discount. Purchased!
At this price.....it’s a must. Thanks op
This is a superbly versatile product that does so much. Add a 256GB SD card, load the app on your phone and you are good to go. I bought this because was having trouble streaming videos to my TV (the Tablet I used was full and often the connection was proving to be a bit flakey) plus I needed something on my travels. Enter the RavPower Filehub.

A quick tip on setup is use the button on the side to set the Filehub to broadcast both 2.4 and 5.0GHz networks as 5.0 is much much faster to access files on devices that can connect to it (and even if the WiFi supplying internet to the Filehub is 2.4, it's still faster from the Filehub to your tablet at 5.0 if that makes sense).

Using the app on my Samsung S7 worked straight away and even though the app looks a bit clunky and takes a bit of getting used to it works well enough. It was a different story on my Lenovo Yoga Tab3 Pro tablet however - the current app (ver. 2.0.142) installed fine but would not open. I've had this happen to me before with other apps, so I just loaded up a previous version (2.0.136) from an alternative source, APKpure. Irritating but it only took a couple of minutes to sort out. If you need the older version of the App check out m.apkpure.com/rav…ies.

So I've been using it for about 10 weeks and its worked well and been very robust - streams videos to my TV seamlessly and maintains good network connectivity so far. Transferred 100Gb of videos wirelessly from my tablet (using 5.0 gHz) and it wasn't that much slower than using USB2. Well happy!

I do this, and it works without internet access. Connect the Firestick to the rav's WiFi and then launch Kodi via the apps menu. To play files you just add a new SMB video source in Kodi using the rav's IP address. I've done it a few times on a Firestick and on my phone when flying. Works perfectly.

Yes, you can actually. :-)

It actually set's itself up as a form of portable router/hub thingy, so, with the correct App installed on your phone/tablet, etc, and via theOP's RAVPower device itself, then ...

A few good examples of explaining it a bit more for you, can be also found here, perhaps:

These are great for backing up SD cards from cameras etc to a connected drive (of your choosing) . One touch of a button to copy the SD card, and it’ll only copy new files if that’s your preference

Superb post MisterT
Looks awesome, bought one, thank you!
Voted hot. I read most of 1 to 4 stars reviews on Amazon and not sure if worth to buy it,even if price is good. According to many reviews this product seems to have many inconsistencies and not reliable and performing as it is advertised. Mentioned quick battery draining, Sony raw files incompatibility, too basic file manager, not possible to keep it charging while tethered via ethernet (?) and other things. Maybe those were faulty units maybe not, and some people don't know how to use it properly or false expectations. I don't know, just want to badly buy it myself but feeling that something will disappoint me..just wanted to add info and hopefully being reassured that is better than it seems to be according to those 1 to 4 stars reviews.

That's brilliant thank you. I think this looks a really nifty and handy device and I'd like one, but I'm struggling to see what benefits there are or what I can use it for. If someone with more knowledge than me (wont be hard) could help, I have a Couple of questions.

If I have a 2TB external hard drive that connects using a USB cable, would I be able to connect to this USB port or is it only for charging?

Can this connect to a wifi wirelessly and then extend that signal again? I dont know if I'm missing something but I dont see the point in connecting a long cable to it from the router as they are normally wireless anyway or if you have a long cable you can move the wifi (if there is power). Maybe in the odd occassion you have a socket that you can plug a cable into and into this to turn it into wifi?

If you want to watch a film off a memory card, I'm sure you can buy a dumb device that plugs into your phone charging port, that then has a slot for a memory card or even a usb, so you can watch films direct from your cards.

Positives I can see:
Can charge your phone
One memory card can be shared between 5 users
Sometimes only one wifi connection allowed in hotels. This can circumvent that problem.



Is there anything that I am missing about this, as everyone seems to love these little things and I feel I'm missing a trick

Hello buddy.
Here is a quick list of what it can do:
1) Supporting to reading USB hard drives up to 8TB and SD/SDHC/SDXC cards up to 256GB.
2) Perfect for when you need to free up space for Android or iOS devices.
3) Up to 5 mobile devices can connect simultaneously allowing you to stream media from the SD or USB drives, or you can directly share files between two different storage devices.
4) As a portable router, you can turn any wired network and make it wireless, or connect it via a DSL or cable modem and it will act as a regular router.
5) Act as Wi-Fi extender, If you connect it to an existing Wi-Fi network, you can share hotspot access with all your friends and families - perfect for hotels or places you each need to pay for internet access.

I used the device at my uncles house as i wanted to use wireless in a garage that he has but it couldn't get any wifi from his router at all. I connected a long cable from his router to the filehub just so i could put the filehub in the garage and get full strength wifi. I didn't replicate the wifi using the filehub just because i would be replicating a weak signal and the speeds would have been really slow which is why i ended up using the cable from the router to the filehub. If there is a card reader that plugs into a phone which doubles as a battery charger too (not seen one of these or even sure if it's possible) then that's an absolute winner.

I think you're right about about getting a device to plug into your phone that can read memory cards which makes sense, the only thing i could see with that is that the device would be using your charging port and depending on how much you watch it may drain the battery in your phone quite quickly so i can see the logic of one of these Filehubs as it will allow you to connect your charger to your phone and not worry about your battery life.

You can use the filehub as a wifi extender so you can connect it to your wireless and then connect your phone etc to the filehub and get internet access.

I think it's useful to have one of these if you go away somewhere. I wish i had one of these when i went to Greece. The wifi in the hotel was non existent and i would have loved to have used this just to watch something in the room. I didn't have one of these then. But if i do go away i always chuck it in my case.

It may be one of those devices that you buy and just hardly ever use it, but i find it quite useful to have one

Very good review. Thanks mate.
Just thinking for those of us on the 3 unlimited everything, this is a must have.
...But on second thoughts, any android phone with sd card interface can do the same. i.e insert 1TB SD card in your phone and share files over a local network. Or enable wifi hotspot on your android phone.

That's such a detailed response. Really appreciate it. I guess you're right. Very handy in the times you need it, but not one you would always use.
I wonder if these also acts like a VPN for anyone (not me of course) who uses pirate bay for downloading?

Does that still work? Piratebay I mean? I thought it was illegal. I remember it was really big 10 years ago when i was at uni then the legality of the website came under fire.
