If you’re travelling with tablets and phones and want to control what your children are watching, the SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drives provides a hassle-free answer.
Up to 64GB
Available in three sizes – 16GB, 32GB and 64GB – the 2.79 x 0.84 x 0.45 in. SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive creates its own WiFi Direct network. Anything stored upon it, either dragged ‘n’ dropped from a PC or Mac, or sent to it from a mobile device, can be accessed by any gadget with WiFi.
It’s all done through an app – SanDisk Wireless Flash – which is available for iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, and Android devices. A password can be specified, too, to keep everything secure.
Three devices up to 150ft away can stream something from the SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive simultaneously, though it’s possible to attach eight devices.
Four hours battery
Sadly, the SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive only keeps going for four hours before it needs a recharge. However, since it can be refueled via any USB slot, that shouldn’t be a major issue. Who doesn’t know travel with a USB charger?
Handy and easy to use, but this is hardly a travel essential.
