Kingston Wi-Drive


When it comes to the iPhone, iPad and iPod, storage is expensive. These devices all have fixed amounts of storage, and no way for consumers to upgrade them with simple memory cards. And that can mean that people end up with less storage than they need,...

Wireless, small, reasonably priced, Android and iOS support

App is basic, gets very hot, bigger than most wired storage

The Kingston Wi-Drive works, as it should. We have some minor worries about the operating temperature and the battery life. We aren't thrilled that you can't have it plugged in to a PC or other power source and still use it on Wi-Fi either. But, both...

Kingston Wi-Drive review


Wireless storage for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch – but at a price

Slim and light so very portable ; Internet connection bridging ; Many devices can access files simultaneously ; Free upgrades coming ; Web browser access for non-iOS devices

Incredibly expensive price per GB ; Relatively low capacities ; Mediocre iOS app ; Can't (yet) edit files ; No Android support

Sooner or later, you're going to run out of storage space on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. And because you've got no way of adding more inside the device, you're faced with clearing stuff off – or adding some memory externally.

Extremely portable, flash-based, multiple WiFi security options and connection bridging available, good battery life, reasonable price

Memory limited to 32GB, no on-board encryption

The Wi-Drive is a tiny little SSD, no bigger than an average smartphone. With dimensions of 121.5x61.8x9.8mm and a weight of 84g, portability is a major strength as the device can easily be carried around in a trouser or jacket pocket all day

Kingston Wi-Drive wireless storage for iOS review


With nearly 350,000 apps and counting, the iPhone's maximum capacity of 32GB doesn't allow you to even scratch the surface of the App Store's catalog. Throw i...

Kingston Wi-Drive


The Kingston Wi-Drive is a handy companion to your iPhone, iPad, and/or iPod touch that adds storage and streams content to multiple devices, but its specs don't quite match its high price tag.

Compact, light build. Can stream content to three devices simultaneously. Simple to add content. Companion iOS app makes connecting easy.

Expensive for the amount of storage you get. Short battery life. Only works with iOS devices. Limited to iOS-native file formats.

Kingston Wi-Drive review


Editor's note: This reviewed was updated on May 16, 2013 to reflect the newer model with higher storage capacity.

The supercompact Kingston Wi-Drive provides extra storage space for mobile devices and is capable of relaying Internet access from an existing Wi-Fi network to its connected clients.

The Kingston Wi-Drive offers a limited amount of storage space, doesn't support USB 3.0, and is slow as an external drive. The device also has a short battery life and supports only three concurrent clients.

Compact, Internet-ready, and well-designed, the Wi-Drive makes a convenient companion for frequent travelers who have from one to three tablets and a moderate library of digital content.

Kingston Wi-Drive


It works by creating a local Wi-Fi network for up to three Android or iOS devices to connect to. Cleverly, it can also create a bridge between a Wi-Fi router and phone or tablet, allowing internet use via the Wi-Drive's network. Older models of the...
