titleCloud storage and wireless networking are pretty much staples in everyone’s day to day lives at this point. Being so used to the constant stream of data can leave you feeling disconnected at times where you don’t have access and even simple data transfers can become a hassle. Carry Technology seek to lessen this burden with their Apotop DW09 Wi-Reader and DW17 Wi-Reader Pro designed for use with Apple and Android/Apple mobile devices respectively. Join me as I take a look at this pair of wireless cloud servers you can fit in your pocket and see if they deliver as promised.

The first thing you notice about both devices’ packaging is the simple and direct approach taken to introduce us to each of them. We are introduced to the styling of the actual device and a quick rundown of the general functions each possess including the wireless standard, battery life and the data mediums able to be read.

Both Wi Reader devices work in tandem with a free app that allows intuitive ease of use. To assist us in downloading this app the packaging provides QR codes for us to scan and be taken directly to the download without any waste of time. On the DW17 these QRs are located on the sides of the packaging while the more Apple-centric DW09 has its App Store QR located directly on the front face.

Flipping the box over, we are greeted with a more in-depth explanation on each devices features including systems requirements and compatibility, usage and a one year warranty.

WiReader 8

Opening the box we find that each device is nestled comfortably in a cardboard shell that feels incredibly stout and capable of keeping the product safe. Within the internal packaging for both the DW09 and DW17 are USB charging cables for the internal battery as well as a quick user’s guide. It is only after unboxing that you really start to gain an appreciation for the compact size of both devices.
