How to use a USB card reader with your iPad Pro

By April 1, 2016 Company, tizi No Comments

Apple sells a USB adapter as well as an SD card reader for iOS devices. The SD card reader isn’t quite as flexible, but has the advantage that it, well – reads SD cards.

The USB adapter can read photos from a camera, but if you plug in a USB card reader, you’ll usually get an error message that the device needs too much power.

But if you have Apple’s new USB 3 adapter, you can get it to work anyway. Here’s how:

  1. Plug your SD card reader into the USB adapter
  2. Connect a Lightning cable to the USB adapter’s lightning port (like our hot pink tizi Flip reversible lightning cable)
  3. Plug in a power adapter, or high-power capable battery (e.g. a tizi Tankstation or tizi Kraftprotz)

Now you can plug the USB adapter into the iPad and it will import your photos just fine.

Happy importing!
