Redesigned from inside-out, the new Cardette Ultra is a huge step up from its popular predecessor both in terms of looks and function. Its sleek aluminum exterior complements the new line of iMac and MacBooks exquisitely. Furthermore, it is equipped with the most advanced memory controller IC compatible with next generation high speed/high capacity memory cards. Unlike other generic card readers, Cardette Ultra supports all existing memory card standards with just 3 slots; making it easy to identify the correct slot for your memory card. Cardette Ultra conveniently links to your Mac/PC via USB 2.0 and draws power directly from it, so there are no external power adapters required. It also comes integrated with two USB 2.0 ports so that you actually gain one extra USB port while plugged in. Cardette Ultra is one of the very few future-proof card readers available today supporting the following memory card formats: all series of CompactFlash (CF) and MicroDrive, all series of Memory Stick (MS,MS Duo, MS PRO Duo), M2, MultiMediaCard (MMC),SecureDigital (SD), micro SD / TF, eXtremeDigital (xD-Picture), and SecureDigital High Capacity (SDHC), SDXC. *Adapter required for miniSD.
