Best mobile wireless drives of 2016


Mobile wireless drives are great accessories for tablets and smartphones. They are basically portable drives with a built-in battery and an embedded Wi-Fi network. Devices connected to this Wi-Fi network can use the drive's internal storage as backup destination (for user-generated content) as well as streaming content stored there. The idea is you load lots of music, photos and video to enjoy them while you're out and about. Listed here are the top devices of this type.
