USB Cable Gets Hitched With SD TechnologyThe desk drawer to my left is full of card readers, USB sticks, cables etc.Â It’s just too much.Â Last week Brando sent me an email with their latest idea to reduce the clutter and global waste of all these connection devices.Â It was a USB cable with an SD card reader built; in-line. Take away the fact that it’s ANOTHER cable I will have, the idea of putting connectors in-line a USB cable is brilliant.
There are two versions to you can buy, but really only one is needed.Â Brando offers the full size SD card reader and the microSD card reader version.Â Simply buy the full SD card version and get a microSD adapter and you are set.
And please don’t ask about the SD reader being SDHC compliant…they are all compliant these days! Finally, the cable is multi-tasking.Â Meaning you can read data off the SD card while charging up your USB gadget [like phone, iPod or PDA]. The SDHC reader / USB cable will set you back $12. The microSDHC reader/ USB cable is the same price.
