How to Adapt Memory Cards
With the vast range of memory cards these days it’s hard to get a real idea of which you need for which device.
Most gadgets take varying types and sizes of memory cards. We find ourselves not being able to use the same memory card across our devices and gadgets.
Did you know cards can be adapted to enable a smaller card to be used in an item designed to house a larger one?
Here’s a quick example of my Micro SD and Micro SDHC adapter.
Micro SD cards are about a quarter of the size of a standard SD card and are most commonly used in mobile phones. I use the Micro SDHC to SDHC card adapter to use my phone and tablet cards in my integrated laptop SDHC reader.
I checked the speed with and without the adapters and the write speed was unchanged.
Chosen carefully, an adapter is a handy accessory to have available, which can be used to service a range of electronic gadgets simply and reliably.
