Not as good as I had hoped 10/08/2013
This review is from: Kingston Black/Gray 1800 mAh MobileLite Wireless G1 MLW221
It's a nice looking device and kept my phone going for a bit longer than it normally would.
The Android app constantly crashed on me, on every device.
Any time more than one device connected to the MobileLite the app would crash on each device.
When the app would crash, I would usually need to restart the MobileLite in order to be able to connect to it again.
I was only able to get moderate reliability when using the web browser to access the MobileLite.
Finding the IP for the MobileLite took some minor digging, since it's not noted in the instructions. I was able to get it from the app.
The MobileLite will occasionally show up twice in the app, with different IP addresses.
The longest the app has stayed running for me, on any of my devices, was for about 10 minutes.
The internet passthrough option does not work well. I've only been able to access the internet with the pass through one time.
Transfer speeds are painfully slow. It's significantly faster for me to plug into a computer and transfer files.
There is no charger included, and only a short micro USB cable. You have to use your computer or a phone charger to charge it.
I reviewed the MobileLite with Android devices, an HTC One, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10.
I used USB memory, SD cards and Micro SD cards.
I've had the MobileLite for 2 weeks and have worked with it every day.
