Know your gear

If your MacBook, Chromebook, PC, tablet, smartphone or laptop has no built-in memory card reader, but does have a USB-A, USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port, this USB 3.1 memory card reader is an essential data storage tool. It easily transfers photos, documents, HD video and other files from a wide variety of memory cards to your device. Because this unit has both USB-A and USB-C plugs, you save the expense of buying multiple memory card readers.

Just insert an SD or Micro SD card into the USB card reader's slot, and then plug the built-in USB-A or USB-C male connector into your MacBook, Chromebook, PC, tablet, smartphone or laptop to begin reading files. Removable caps protect the connectors from damage and debris.

The two built-in memory card slots supports all the latest formats, including SDXC (Secure Digital Extended Capacity) and SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity). An LED next to the slots let you know data is being transferred. The slots are hot-swappable, so you can exchange cards while the unit remains connected to your MacBook, Chromebook, PC, tablet, smartphone or laptop.

If your MacBook, Chromebook, PC, tablet, smartphone or laptop has a USB 3.0 port, this memory card reader transfers digital photos and other files at speeds up to 5 Gbps, which is 10 times faster than USB 2.0 card readers. It's backward compatible with previous USB generations, including 2.0 and 1.1, so data can transfer regardless of your device.

The compact USB 3.1 memory card reader fits easily into your camera bag or laptop sleeve, so you can access files at a moment's notice. Its plug-and-play technology requires no new software, drivers or external power supply. It's compatible with all USB-enabled operating systems, including Windows and Mac.

Tripp Lite USB C Gen 1 Multi-Drive Smart-Card Flash-Memory Media Reader/Wri is rated 5.00 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, fast, and very convenient I move large amounts of pictures and this USB reader is much faster than my current PNY Combo card reader thanks to the USB3.0 vs the PNY 2.0 port. I appreciate the quality product, it also has a USB-C connection underneath the cap. The only thing I wish it had extra was an extra cap so that both USB connections were covered when not in use.
