Apple’s own Camera Connection Kit just can’t stand up to this improved knock-off version. DealExtreme is offering this 3-in-1 camera connection kit for iPad for just $19.40, shipped to just about anywhere. With one adapter, it gives you iPad a USB port, an SD card slot, and even a TransFlash card slot. Take that, Apple.
Why use two adapters when you can get one adapter that does the work of three? Well, being honest, that TF slot is superfluous when you consider that nearly every TF (or Micro SD, as it’s better known now) card comes with a TF to SD converter. But still, this is only one adapter, which is a definite advantage over Apple’s two adapter kit. Apple’s, of course, has the advantage of being officially supported. But then again, this one is much cheaper than Apple’s version.
If you’re interested enough to actually buy one, you’ll be waiting for quite a while to get this guy in the mail since it ships from Hong Kong. You can expect to wait about two weeks for shipment to the US.
If you’re not familiar with DealExtreme, they are an awesome online retailer that has an amazing amount of products for insanely low prices. Most of them are imitation electronics. Many are of great quality, and many are not. It’s a bit hit or miss, but when you only pay 2 or 3 dollars for a pair of headphones, you almost have to be amazed they work at all. DealExtreme is definitely worth a look if you’re in the market for some cheap electronics.
