If you’re anything like us, you’ll have a bunch of old microSD cards lying around in drawers at home and in the office. Actually you’ll also be missing a number of them which have gone walkabout, but that’s another story entirely. For anyone wondering what to do with their old cards, we have a product you may like.
This microSD Card Drive Creator lets you gather up all your old microSD memory cards and add them to a single unit which you can then plug into your computer to give you SSD type storage at a stroke. You’ll need a fair few cards to make it worthwhile, since the unit accepts up to 10 cards, and you’ll have to use Class 10 cards to make it worthwhile, but it’s still a bit of a gas.
The device is compatible with any Serial ATA interface, which means most desktop computers etc, and if you really want to splash the boat out, you can get hold of a SATA to USB adapter and you’ll be able to plug the cards into any laptop or tablet computer as an external drive on a whim. And since the product can hold up to 10 x 64GB cards, that’s 640 GB of storage right there. Neat.
It’s compatible (and bootable) with Windows and Mac, and weighs 25g. The whole thing is priced at $87.22 (excluding cards of course). Oh and it’s recommended that you use cards from the same manufacturer, good luck with that!
