Hi I am Srikanth Janarthanan lives in india, one of my student gifted this gadget to me(she brought it from amazon.com) and I received it a week ago. I just love this product but the problem is I don't think the battery indicator is working fine, because when I charge this gadget for more than 6 hours what I could see is blinking green LED. When I contacted nearby service center(Rashi Peripherals Pvt Ltd, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, India. Contact No: +91422- 2455686) no proper response. Suggest me some solutions. My contact number is +91-9894257672

Interesting product! Will this work with an external USB powered HDD with 4TB storage?
I'm going to Europe for about 4 months and taking my GoPro 3 with me. ill this device be able to hold all my videos when I transfer them over every week or so? Or can I only put 64GB of data onto it?

I tried to connect a "wd my passport" 1TB but I can't, everyone knows how to do it?
Can I use a 1TB/2TB SSD with this? I'd like to transfer data from MicroSDs to the SSD, while I'm travelling.

Evertime I turn it on. It fails to show a blue wi-fi light and the globe icon light constantly falshes. Meaning I can't connect to any of my devices. Please help

Buy it on Amazon - http://lon.tv/934qv (affiliate link)

This is a neat little mobile storage and power device that has many useful functions.

6:42 - Conclusion and final thoughts

Kingston has a multipurpose tool for smartphones that incorporates a backup battery, SD Card and USB storage, a media streamer, card reader, and a small router into a paperback-sized device.

The 4640 mAH battery can do about a charge and a half to two charges on a standard mobile phone. It also powers the device's built in wifi server which allows mobile devices and PCs to access the SD card and USB slots on the device.

It can also augment a smartphone or tablet's storage, allowing files to be copied back and forth to the Mobile Companion. Additionally files can also be copied from the SD card to a USB stick and vice versa.

I really like its versatility. I also like that PCs can get access to the files through their native file systems as the Mobile Companion supports standard file sharing.
