Smartphone SD card reader?

Question

jerkbait

To all you super smart ones out there. Is there an SD card reader that I can plug into the micro USB slot on my Droid and read my SD cards from my trailcams right out in the field?

Thanks,

Chris

I was just looking for something like this the other day.

I found a bunch of stuff that seems like it will work, but nothing with a well known company's name stamped on it. Mostly stuff on that online auction site that ships out of hong kong.

seems like it's phone specific too, your phone must have USB OTG (On-The-Go) capabilities to act as a host for plugged in USB devices.

I was just looking at one on new egg and was wonderi ng what OTG was. Would be pretty cool. How do I know if my phone has OTG? My first smartphone, so I am still being outsmarted.

not sure how to tell other than taking your phone manufacturer/model and googling it. Post the info here and maybe somebody can help.

Sounds like it's a combo of android version, android version specifically adapted to your phone, and your phone's hardware.

as best as I could tell, my phone's (HTC Sensation 4g) hardware prevents it from supplying power, even if the operating system has no problem with serving as a host for USB devices. So I would need a USB OTG cable that has an AC adapter to supply the power to the USB device.... I know that makes a difference for something like an external hard drive that needs some juice to power up, not sure about a simple memory card reader.

      If ever a person wanted to accelerate their learning curve on Osakis, this would be a good time to do it! I’ll try to keep it open but I never know what’s going to happen with the kids wedding coming up - at our house - in September. Thanks for putting this on Borch. 😎

      I haven’t fished it but would use chubs like you mentioned if I did. Good luck ozzie.

      We fished the small lake a few week back the water was really high. No luck with bass around the pads tried Texas rigged worms and spinner baits, we did find crappies in 8-10" around Lilly pads and reeds crappies were caught on panfish leaches and small glow jigs.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.
