Overview and Features
Let me start by first covering the features present in both the DW09 and DW17 models and then wrapping up by describing those features present solely in the DW17 Wi Reader Pro.
First, the Wi Reader’s initial function is to act as a wireless reader device capable of accepting USB Flash drives as well as SD cards (miniSD and microSD as well with an adapter) and sharing that device among up to three other devices. This not only allows for easy sharing between devices but allows the ability to backup and transfer information to any extra USB drives or SD cards you may have laying around.
The next functionality of the Wi Reader is its ability to function as a mini wireless router for your connected devices even when a network might not be available such as in hotel travel situations. This is accomplished by an RJ45 port located on the side of the device next to the charging port. Operating on 802.11 b/g/n standards and intended to deliver 150Mbps speeds means this little device that can fit in your pocket is capable of rivaling most mid-level in-home wireless routers.
On top of those great features, the Wi Reader Pro expands even farther by including an internal 3.7V/2600mAh powerbank. This increases the devices size slightly when compared to the DW09 but increases potential battery life by nearly 4 hours and even allows you to use it as an external battery for your device if you find yourself in a pinch.
