What is good?
Every wireless storage device connects via WiFi. So, for most devices, while it is connected to a tablet or smartphone, users cannot connect to the Internet on that device. But the Kingston MobileLite Wireless G2 can. The device can be bridged with the home WiFi connection and you can surf the Internet while you are still connected to your external flash drive.
The best deal of the device is that the user can also connect their dongle to the USB port and convert it into a WiFi hotspot. This ensures that this wireless flash reader doesn’t interfere with your online life ever. The Ethernet port comes in handy when you want to go wireless. Just plug in the Cat5 cable and connect automatically.
It can also act as an emergency power bank.
Kingston MobileLite Wireless G2 is multipurpose device which solves all your problems related to wireless storage and Internet connectivity.
What is not that good?
Kingston should provide more instructions and product details to consumers. Else, the buyers would be just stranded at thinking it to be another wireless flash reader. I would have preferred a bigger battery for the device.
For the price of around Rs 3,000, Kingston is offering a great deal. The MobileLite Wireless G2 is the best option while graduating to wireless storage, especially for the fact that there is no storage limit.
