Bonus, it doubles up as external battery pack. 3,000mah may not be a lot but it does come in handy in those critical must have a charge situations.
Wireless wi-fi storage and external battery pack 3000mah
SD card slot
The size of the wifi disk is about the size of a portable hard drive. Slightly bigger than my S3; look at attached picture for reference.
To connect to the device you must make a wifi connection to it. It is named "WiFiSD-158E" and the password is "11111111". That is 8 ones BTW.
I was able to pick up a wide array of storage media. SD card, microsd in a sd card adapter, Flash drives ranging from 4gb to 32gb with many different brands. It was able to power a Seagate portable hard drive no problem while a SD card was also in the sd card slot.
Many different devices were used to connect to the wifi disk: Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Ipad 4, Acer laptop, Coby Cryos android tablet, galaxy S3, Iphone 5 and a t-mobile S2.
It says that up to 5 devices can be connected to it.
I was able to play all sorts of video files from it, divx/xvid, avi, mp4, mkv, mov.....720p,1080p. It handled it like a champ.
I connected 5 devices and tried to stream a divx file all at the same time. It worked flawlessly, no stutters, no audio drops.
Now I dunno about HD 720p or 1080p files with 5 devices trying to stream from it. Will try more tests later.
You can access your connected storage via 3 different ways:
Now, you can use the recommended mobile apps mobile fun (android) and airstor (IOS) to connect to the device to see your connected storage options. They are nice clean simple apps. Reminds me of an "ES Explorer" type file explorer. Pretty fast, smooth and it simply just works. The one thing the APP is a must for is to make it a wifi hotspot. What that means is that you can configure it to connect to your regular home internet router so that when your device is connected to it; you can still have internet access. Basically it acts like a wireless bridge for your router. Once configured you don't have to use the apps ever again.
You can even use your browser to go to "10.10.10.254" and connect via a web interface. The default username is "admin" and there is no password. You can configure it to have a password; which I did via a wizard tutorial. This is nice since you can connect your laptop to it and access the connected storage.
The last option was a little thing I figured out and was pleasantly surprised! The wifi disk can be accessed via ANY file explorer app that can make SAMBA/SMB connections! File explorers such as "ES Explorer" and "Solid Explorer" have this ability. I personally recommend solid explorer (more on that in a bit).
You just have to set it up (please see attached picture for reference).
For solid explorer press the "jump" button, then "Network" and then "SMB/CIFS" button. Jump>Network>SMB/CIFS
Now press the plus sign button at the top right. It will cause a popup that you will need to fill in the appropriate info.
Display name: can be left blank
Computer name or ip address: enter 10.10.10.254
Authentication method: can set as "Log in as guess" if you did not use the web interface to make a pass word. If you did make a password set it as "store encrypted password"
password: whatever password you made via the web interface
Now you should be able use the file explorer to navigate the connected storage options:
SDCARD-Volume1 = SD card slot
USBDisk-Volume1 = USB port connected storage
Now you don't need an extra app to use the wifi disk. Use the file explorer you love and know!
Solid Explorer is my reccomendation because it has the two pane option when in landscape mode. With the two panel mode, you can navigate to the "SD card" with pane 1 and then navigate to the "usb port" with pane 2. This will allow you to transfer files between the "sd card" and the "usb port" storage seemlessly and easily! There was a step by step guide on amazon how to transfer files between two attached storage options on the wifi disk, but this makes it sooooo much easier!
Build Quality: Seems solid, not too flimsy but quite light. Nice colored LED's that aren't too bright.
Gripes about it:
Only comes in white; no black option. It sticks out like a sore thumb next to all my other devices. The external battery pack I bought before Xmas had a white generic apple charger which didn't go with the black external battery pack I bought.
Does not come with a wall charger; but will use any usb charger.
I do not work for RAVpower but was really impressed with their external battery pack for Xmas. Was even contacted by them after the new year to personally ask how the product was working out for me. That was a pleasant surprise. So that pushed my try the wifi disk instead of bigger name alternatives.
******UPDATE 5/21/14 -
The Wireless disk/filehub comes in black now. So yay for more color options.
The apps to connect are now -
IOS - AIRSTOR or RAV Filehub
Android - Rav Filehub
You can still use other "file explorer" apps as long as SMB/SAMBA connections can be made with it. Solid explorer and ES explorer are good ones still for Android.
I have tested it with a 128gb SD card and it recognized it right away.
1) Last year I used the Apple connection kit Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (MC531ZM/A) and uploaded the photos to my iPad3 but all too soon the iPad memory was full.
2) Next trip I took a Seagate Wireless Plus hard drive Seagate Wireless Plus 1 TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming (STCK1000100)and that worked much better but required an extra step since my camera is not wifi enabled. I had to load the images to my iPad then I could connect wirelessly to the Seagate and copy the files from the iPad to the Seagate. Then delete the photos from the iPad to make space for the next group. Effective but annoyingly time consuming.
3) My next attempt to simplify this was to try the Eye-fi Mobi card Eye-Fi Mobi 8GB SDHC Class 10 Wireless Memory Card, Frustration Free Packaging (MOBI-8-FF) CURRENT MODEL in my camera so I could send the photos directly to the Seagate Drive. The limitations with this setup are twofold: first the Mobi cards are fairly expensive, and second, you can only upload to a mobile device like iPhone or Android, thus duplicating the problem I already have with the memory limits of the iDevice. I believe Eye-Fi also make Pro cards but those are even more expensive and I could find no documentation to suggest that I'd be able to connect directly from the camera to the Seagate drive. [If someone has more info on this setup please feel free to leave me a comment!]
4) This year's improvement included this product - the RAVPower FileHub. With this setup I put the SD card in the FileHub then connected the USB port of the FileHub to the Seagate (the Seagate has a USB port and also a wireless router). From an FTP app (File Explorer) on my iPhone (or iPad) I could connect wirelessly to the FileHub and see both the SD card folders/files and the USB Drive folders/files. In File Explorer I could select which photos to copy from the SD card then specify a folder on the USB drive to copy them to. This eliminated the step of copying to the iPhone/iPad since the files moved directly from the SD card to the Seagate drive.
Using the FileHub worked much better than my previous attempts in that I was able to bypass the step of copying onto my iPhone. The bad part is mostly software related. The AirStor software that is provided by RAVpower is fine for setting up the FileHub's settings but it has the annoying habit of requiring a login every time I switched apps. Its also very limited in functionality. Though it lets you browse the image files on the SD card I could only find single image copy functionality which would be ridiculous when there are 100+ photos to back up for the day. I ended up using File Explorer by Skyjos from the App Store to copy files from the SD card to the USB drive.
Procedure I used (added photos of this setup):
1) plug in the FileHub to power using a multipurpose usb charger Anker® 36W/7.2A Quad-Port Compact USB Wall Charger / All-In-One Travel Charger for Apple & Android Smartphones & Tablets and other USB-Powered Devices.
2) put the SD card in the FileHub
3) connect the Seagate drive to the FileHub and start it up.
4) On the iPhone I would change the wireless connection to the FileHub-XXXX network and enter the passcode, 11111111.
5) Opened File Explorer and selected the connection I had created to the FileHub (see [ ] section below for directions on that procedure.)
6) Browsed to the SD card\DCIM\Pana_XXX folder and selected which files to copy by ticking the checkbox next to each image.
7) Clicked Copy at the bottom.
8) Browsed to USB drive\Photos folder and selected that as the "copy-to" location.
9) Wait. The copy process took about 10-20 seconds for each 14 megapixel file (4 MBs). Raw files considerably longer (17MBs).
[Instructions for adding the connection to FileHub in File Explorer: Open File Explorer. Click + to add a connection. Select Linux/Unix. Enter a display name (I just used Backup drive). Enter Host/IP as 10.10.10.254. In the Connect As section enter login name admin (all lower case) and password 11111111 (default password for the FileHub). Save. Now in the main File Explorer screen you should see Local storage (Local and Photo Library), and Shared (Backup Drive, or 10.10.10.254).]
4 stars. I like the physical product - it's lightweight and sleek. Charging and connections all worked fine and the wifi network it created was stable every time. They lose a star for the software though. The stuff they provide is inadequate and the connection process is confusing and cumbersome or repetitive sometimes.
The perfect software would acknowledge the need for SYNCing files from SD to a USB device, allowing you to select which items to copy from SD to USB or even better, allowing you select two folders to sync. File Explorer did not allow that either, which meant I had to look at the last file name in the USB drive then manually tick each of the remaining photos to copy when I opened the SD card (or clear the SD card after each backup). I will post a request/review for File Explorer to upgrade the app to allow you to Select All then choose whether to copy over existing file names or skip files that already exist at the destination. This is something that would be super valuable to include in your app too, RAVpower! All it all the FileHub provides a solid connection between SD and USB which is what I was looking for.
