Wi-Fi SD Card Adapter for micro SD Cards Sells for $15 and Up

Wi-Fi SD cards are mostly used with camera in order to wirelessly transfer photos or/and videos to your computer or mobile device without having to take out the card or transfer them via a micro USB cable. I first discovered this type of card with Toshiba FlashAir in 2011, but now EyeFi seems to be the most popular brand, and comes in different sizes with the 8GB Wi-FI SD card selling for $44 on Amazon US. There are cheaper alternatives with some Wi-Fi SD card adapters accepting micro SD card selling for about $15 and up on Aliexpress or Buyincoins, and DX calls it CY EP-027, but sells it for $23. It does not come with storage but since a 8GB class 10 SD card now costs about $8, it’s still nearly 50% cheaper compared to the 8GB EyeFi SD card.

Wi-Fi_SD_Card_AdapterSome features of the card:

  • Max micro SD card capacity – 32GB (SDHC/SDXC)
  • Connect up to 3 devices simultaneously
  • Supports “with the beat-per-view” feature, which probably mean “Shoot and View” so that you’ll see the picture on a bigger display, as soon as you take it with your camera.
  • File formats supported:  Photo (JPG, PNG, BMP),  Video (MP4, AVI, MOV) and Music (MP3, WAV)
  • WiFi/SD settings: WiFi password, AP Mode and Station Mode switch, IP, channels, number or users, SSID.
  • Default passwords –  Wi-Fi: 99999999; App credentials: admin/admin

The card is said to work with Android and iOS devices, as well as computers.

To use it, you need to insert a micro SD card in the adapter, insert the adapter into your camera, then locate the Wi-Fi hotspot with your device or computer and login with the default password. Now open you browser, and you should be able to download the app. Alternatively, you can also download [email protected] app from Google Play or iTunes.

WiFI_SDCFI could not find the manufacturer, and the app developer “Key Technology” only setup a place holder blog, probably to comply with the app stores’ requirements to have a support page.

Thanks to Onebir for the tip.

(Possibly cheaper on Aliexpress, but a lot of the ‘bigger’ cards there don’t have the full stated capacity.)

@onebir, I will never buy cheap SD cards. Just not worth losing your photos because of it. Even store branded ones aren’t worth the risk.

Fair enough… & actually I had an Adata card brick within a few weeks…

Out of interest, which brands have you found reliable? (Maybe CNX could do a poll? 🙂

I don’t remember if I used a card reader with this card. It might have been plugged directly into a tablet…

No support for HTML? And why is it limited to 3 connections?

Do these cards transmit only are can you send it files as well?

I have a usb sd card thumb drive that I hook up to an old tv to play video files, but it’s a pain to remove it to delete/load new files.

Sounds cool (at $15), but does it run Linux?
