As with other models in the line, the new Media Streamer Plus streams content stored on either a USB drive or SD card to a tablet or smartphone without using an Internet connection. The new model steps up with the addition of an Ethernet port as well as acting as a powerful mobile power charger with its Samsung Lithium-Ion 5200mAh battery.

Additionally, it has an Ethernet port for network connectivity and a large 5200mAh Samsung Lithium-Ion battery that provides up to 16 hours of WiFi operation. All of that and it's still compact and portable enough to fit in the palm of a hand," added Chapman.

Up to six devices can connect via WiFi to the Media Streamer Plus at the same time and stream different content. For users that need a constant link to the Internet, it features an Internet Bridge that allows connection to the Internet while streaming from the device. It supports iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android smartphones and tablets, and Windows smartphones and tablets.

Its products are the perfect accessory for the smartphone or tablet user as well as for mobile charging applications, and for content back up and streaming.
