I’m a sucker for gadgets that make travel easier and I found one that is going to save me a lot of headaches. Yes, I’ll be including a link to buy at Amazon (and a discount code) for which I earn a small commission. No, I didn’t get a free one.
Let’s see if this scenario applies to you. You’re on the road and you check in to a hotel. They charge you a crazy amount for a night of Internet and it is only good for a single device. Meanwhile you have a phone and a laptop as does your traveling companion. That’s just one area where the RavPower FileHub is going to save the day!
You connect the RavPower FileHub to the hotel Internet (either wired or wireless) and then you connect all your devices to your own travel router! Sometimes the wired connection is even free so you could save some money. Set up the connections to the SSID of the FileHub in advance and you don’t even have to reconnect them when you’re on the road, they know the connection and auto-connect! Best of all, that’s just one of the functions!
There is an SD card slot and a way to connect a hard drive. That means the FileHub can also act as a way to back up data wirelessly. Need to get a lot of photos off your phone? Now you can easily do it. Of course that also means the content on the SD card or hard drive can be shared to your devices.
There is a built-in 6700-mAh battery so the FileHub can work without electricity. Note that no time is listed so best to have it plugged in for more that short timeframes. You can also use it as a way to charge up devices even though that isn’t an advertised feature.
For those who want to get it right away, use the promo code PRIMEAB9 and you’ll get a very nice discount. Note that this code is related to Prime Day and I have no idea (or control) when it will stop working. I know it does work (for a limited time/supply) as I used it myself to order one.
