Card-Drive / mobile hard drive


The “Card-Drive” gives people a convenient way to transfer data from cameras, camcorders, smart phones and other devices, especially while traveling. Also, modern smartphones and cameras, especially DSLR cameras, take HD videos that use a significant amount of storage space.
Pressing the button on top shows the remaining storage space with a ring of LED lights. While transferring data, the ring displays the progress.
When hard drive is almost full, the light will turn red.
