You are going on your much deserved and very long vacation. You are bringing along your trusty camera. You are expecting to take a lot of still shots and movies. You realize that you are going to need much more storage space than you currently have on your SD memory cards. What do you do?

One way would of course be to fork out a fortune and buy a whole bunch of memory cards to last the entire trip.  The other common method that most people resort to would be to bring along a laptop, a card reader and a portable external hard drive along with you. At the end of the day, just copy everything from your memory cards over to the hard drive. However, lugging around a laptop (even an ultra portable one) just for this purpose is such a burden.

Now, there is much simpler solution. The RAVPower RP-WD01 is an all-in-one wonder gadget with multiple functions:

  1. Wireless SD card reader
  2. Wireless external hard drive / USB flash drive reader
  3. External portable battery pack
  4. NAS file server
  5. WiFi hotspot

The RAVPower RP-WD01 also has an additional undocumented function that is a boon to all photographers. It allows transfer of files between an SD card and a connected external hard drive. Just insert the SD card into the card reader slot, connect the hard drive via the USB port, switch on the WiFi function and then use your smart phone or tablet to directly copy the files from the SD card over to the hard drive without copying the files over to your mobile device first.

As an added bonus, you can do this even while you are on the go as the RAVPower RP-WD01 has its own built-in rechargeable battery to power itself and also the connected hard drive. The built-in battery also doubles up as an external battery pack (3000 mAh) for charging your phone.

The RAVPower RP-WD01 is originally designed to work as a simple and hassle free method for users to access files from an SD card, USB flash drive or an external hard drive. The content on the connected storage devices are accessed wirelessly using WiFi. The device need not connect to a WiFi network to work but it can do so as well. If it connects to a internet connected network, users can access the internet and access the shared files at the same time as the RAVPower RP-WD01 acts as a wireless hotspot as well. Connected storage act like a NAS file server.

Up to 5 users can connect to the RAVPower RP-WD01 at the same time. It is ideal for sharing of large files that would not fit in your mobile device’s limited storage. One example of how the RAVPower RP-WD01 can be used is to store a bunch of movie files and share them while on a road trip. Passengers in the car can each pick which movie that they want to watch.

The RAVPower RP-WD01 is an amazingly versatile gadget and it only cost about as much as a 64GB SD card.
