So you love flying your drone, or you love shooting action footage with your GoPro or similar – but then the files are trapped on your microSD card until you can get to a computer to share the photos or video. No longer a problem for iPhone and iPad owners with the Lexar microSD Reader with Lightning connector.

Sure those with Android phones and expandable storage capabilities can take the card and insert into the phone with ease, but for Apple users that’s been a slight problem.


Anyone who has flown a drone and captured something amazing or had a GoPro strapped to a bike or helmet when something awesome happened in-shot knows the pain of having to wait to get connected, or wirelessly transfer the video or photos across to your phone.

With this Lexar microSD reader you simply take the memory card out of the device, and slot it into your iPhone.


First time you use the device it prompts you to download a free app, and just like many other expansion style cases or plug-in devices you can then shift files from your phone to the memory card and vice versa.


From there it’s simply a matter of choosing the files you want and “moving” them across to your own iOS device.

One hitch. If you’re recording in a super high-resolution like 4K, your iPhone might not be able to handle it. I need to test this on some other devices – likely iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and newest iPads will handle the 4K, my iPhone SE wasn’t happy.


That aside, it does exactly what it says on the box – and It really will be a time saver when you catch that great moment.

It’s TINY.. and I mean TINY.. $2 coin comparison size.


I highly recommend you take the included string/strap and attach it to your keyring – or this $54.95 little life saver will be lost.

Perfect for your Drone bag, or Camera bag.
