[Review] Leef Access

USB OTG devices can really make a difference in anybodys life .
As you might have noticed there are plenty of devices to choose from ranging from the HDMI docking devices to USB Flash drives and now we have another excellent implementation of USB OTG to admire upon.
Leef has made it again one might say.
At the end of March Leef announced the Leef Access, a micro SD card reader designed for Android devices.
(Nexus owners let me hear you go WOOOOO!)
Yes, Google has shown some evidence on restricting users write access to external SD cards as a concept in Android 4.2.2 versions breaking a tradition that has always been there for any smartphone or tablet owner.
At least owners of those models where an external SD card can be added.
Now every Nexus 7 owner for instance can easily watch that movie they happen to have on a Micro SD card on their vacation or travelling with the help of Leef Access.
As you can see in the pictures it sizes up as a lightweighted pretty little usable device.
No configuration is needed, just make sure you have a device that has support for USB OTG and a supporting operating system on top and you are good to go!.


As you can see in the image below, there is another slot besides the card reader slot.
A compartment slot for a carry-along microSD Card.
So you can carry your spare microSD card inside the Leef Access.
Design is good as always when Leef is doing their business, a small LED shows activity while  flashing calmly Build feels solid and the micro USB connector is steady as a rock where it's attached.
Did we tell you the Leef Access is waterproof and dustproof.
It's a done deal ladies and gentlemen, Leef has done a winner once again.
Thumbs up for Leef Access, yet another genious desing from the Leef Technology team.

A wild guess is that we will see the Leef Bridge and Leef Access merged in the near future.
