I consider Apple’s Lightning SD card adapter to be a step backwards – the original camera connection kit not only included an SD dongle and a USB port, but it also provided them in convenient, pocketable, non-be-cabled form.
Thanks to the fine folks at Photojojo, though, you can now relive the excitement of not using a cable to plug in your SD card with the Lightning SD Reader.
There are a couple of connectors, all of which sport the sleek new Lightning connector for plugging straight into your iPad Mini’s or iPad 4’s slimline data hole. There’s also a USB port and a microSD slot so you can hook up pretty much anything (even the card from your Android phone!)
Available right now, for $40.
