K’ablekey Keychain Flash Drive and Lightning Charge Cable from PKParis -Review

Are you constantly running out of space on your iPhone or iPad ? Or can you never find a charge cable when your iOS device is running low on charge? The new K’ablekey from PKParis is a small but stylish device that solves both these problems.

K’ablekey is designed to fit on your keychain so it’s always with you. It has two halves held together by strong magnets and connected via a short cable. Open it out, remove the caps, and it is a cable with an Apple Lightning connector for charging your iPhone or iPad. The connectors have bright orange caps to protect them when not in use. The caps are magnetic so they stick to each other and to the K’ablekey so you don’t loose them, genius !
Not only is K’ablekey a charging cable it is also a flash drive, allowing you to free up space on your iOS device and easily transfer files to and from your iPhone, iPad and computer (Mac or PC.) On your computer you simply plug the K’ablekey into a USB port and drop and drag files to transfer them to or from the K’ablekey. To use it with your iPad iPhone or iPod Touch you need to install the free PK memory – PKparis app.
With the app you can access music, photos, videos and documents stored on the K’ablekey. You can download them onto your iOS device or view them directly from the K’ablekey. You can also back up your photos, videos and contacts from your iPhone/ iPad and even move them onto the K’ablekey to create more space on your device.

You can view your photos and videos in a list or thumbnail. When copying or moving documents, movies, photos, videos or contacts you can select individual items or select all in a particular category. You can also create folders on the K’ablekey to organize your content.
The K’ablekey has USB 3.0 and the specs boast read speeds of up to 100MB/sec (120 for the 32 and 64GB models) and write speeds of up to 20MB/s. I found that the files copied quickly and that the whole process of reading, copying and moving files was smooth and easy.

For extra security K’ablekey offers the option to password protect some or all of your content. It is also designed to be tough, hard wearing and water- resistant so you don’t have to worry about how it will stand up to use.

Overall, the K’ablekey from PKParis is a great accessory for your iOS device. It is very small, weighs less than an ounce and can be clipped to your keychain so you always have it with you. It is both a Lightning charging cable and a Flash drive, allowing extra storage space for your iOS device and enabling easy file transfer. Highly recommended.
