We char our eyes viewing mostly media online, but physical storages are still a big participant in our consumption habits. We don’t, although, stroll with thumb drives for every useful word or excel document, but our smartphones have evolved into grounds for hoarding and dumping obsolete files. Even pictures captured in a fond memory few years, videos from a concert, grandma’s birthday still stay on your phone, pounding on your guilt.

Users have to download Mobilelite App from Google Play Store or Apple Store based on their devices. Surprisingly, Kingston has support for devices running Amazon’s Fire OS but not for Windows Phones. We would, however, love a desktop-friendly applet or platform to extend our canvas of usage. The app serves as a file manager and displays range of settings for the device. Users with Android-based smart TVs can also use this to stream stored media directly onto their screens.

Kingston Mobilelite Pro is a wireless storage device which relays direct Wi-Fi connection for several devices to connect simultaneously (we tried three at once – iPad and two Androids). After connecting to the Mobilelite Pro, users can bridge it with their wifi connections – allowing users to access the internet. The Mobilelite Pro, thus also serves as a Wi-fi range extender. It charges via USB 2.0.

Users can utilize several connectivity options in the Kingston Mobilelite Pro including ports for connecting USB sticks, external hard drives, memory cards and Ethernet cable. We, however, tried to hook up an external DVD drive for reading files but our efforts ended in dismay, but it can be overlooking given DVDs are not the preferred media these days.

The Mobilelite Pro can be a useful friend outside the house too. Its 6700 mAh battery is capable of performing as a portable power bank. Additionally, it can power Wifi-ed data cards allowing users to concurrently share the internal 64 GB storage as well as the internet.

Reading speeds on the Mobilelite Pro are amazing, and you will not observe any glitch while viewing HD media directly from the storage. Its extended storage options allow users to convey data to and from their devices into USB sticks and external hard disks directly and wirelessly. Users can backup pictures, videos and files into the self-sufficient storage and share them across all connected devices. Writing into the internal storage is time-consuming, writing at nearly 2 MBPS. This demands your deemed patience.
