Inside a micro SD card reader

Opened it up, so you don’t have to.



Oh, look! A GL827!


Old vs. new reader. I’ve used the old one for the last two years, and it never broken albeit being carried around in my right pocket, next to the keys. Also, the micro SD inside never got lost. Amazing quality.

I prefer these microSD card readers to conventional USB memory keys or even the key-type keys because they provide a slot for the microSD card from the phone. Now, the best option would probably be to have a key-shaped microSD card USB reader.
