PKparis K’2: world’s smallest dual micro USB / USB dongle for Android smartphones and tablets

December 22, 2013

    If you thought the Leef Bridge is a cool dual micro USB / USB storage solution for Android devices, then you’ll certainly appreciate the PKparis K’2, the world’s smallest such device.

    Officially announced a few days ago, the K’2 comes with two connectors including a regular USB connector and a regular micro USB one at opposite sites and can connect to a variety of Android devices and computers (whether they’re PCs or Macs). The device measures just 1.34 x 0.66 x 0.27 inches or 34.5 x 17 x 7 mm, and can be easily attacked to key chains.

    Furthermore, the K’2 uses microSD cards in order for the company to be able to reduce its overall footprint, and while it ships with 16GB of storage, you can swap it later for a 32GB card. Unfortunately, the device does not support 64GB cards yet, and it doesn’t come with USB 3.0 support – or at least not this model.

    The 16GB model costs €29.90 (or about $41) and can be ordered directly from the company’s website (see Source links below).

    PK K’2: The world’s smallest USB key for Android ®!
    PKparis launches the world’s smallest dual USB key for mobiles and tablets

    The PK K’2 is designed to solve the limited inbuilt memory of Android mobile devices and tablets. The key has 16GB of storage capacity which enables people to extend the memory of their electronic devices. With a dual connector and micro USB, transferring or saving data between different devices is easy.

    PK K’2: so easy to save photos & play HD films

    Available in 16 GB, this little key of 4cm³ offers a unique way to transfer and share data between mobile devices (android® with a microUSB connector) and other devices (PC/MAC, etc). Just plug and play! You can easily save your photos from your Smartphone or play a HD film on your tablet. The PK K’2 is compatible with apps such as Nexus Media player, Astro or ES to make it even more convenient.

    PK K’2: small but flexible (up to 32GB)

    A microSD card reader is integrated into the USB connector in order to reduce the size of the device. It enables you to have complete freedom if you want to change the storage capacity later on (up to 32GB).

    Its cord features a mini carabiner which was created in order to avoid losing the caps and allows you to easily detach it from your key ring. So you will always be able to find it and won’t lose it!

      Thanks to Sony now everyone will start making these, which is a good thing.

      Nice. Later the price will come down to regular USB drive.

      SORRY, this is too little too late — I’ve had this nice pqi device for two months now: 32GB built-in, and only 1.25″ x 0.5″ x 0.25″ (with cap on). These are around $30, and when you can buy a 32GB micro SD card for $20, it’s much more reliable to just buy more of these.

      It performs flawlessly for all of my Android devices and PC and while not USB3 it transfers faster than all of my USB2 devices.

        Not even compatible with a Nexus. . . very limited list of compatible devices.

    • One of those guys

      The Meenova seems smaller/cheaper and just an overall a better value. Only $12.

      • That obvious guy

        Where to begin, first this isn’t the same as it doesn’t have a usb connector. Second, it isn’t available for all phone models. Third, and most important, IT ISN’T EVEN AVAILABLE.

        But you’re right, it’s a better deal

        • One of those guys

          The meenova is certainly available and does indeed come with a full sized usb connector. Order it here:

          Or, for those who lack in reading comprehension, perhaps an unboxing video might be in order.

          And yeah, sure, it does handle most phones.

            Anyone buying this, make certain you check to ensure your device is compatible. . . it is NOT compatible with all android devices.

            • One of those guys

              No one said it was compatible with all devices. Checking for device compatibility is as simple as going to the links I provided.

      The dish is from IKEA :D

      LG Nexus 5 is marked out on the compatibility list.

      Think I’ll stick with a generic micro usb cable.

      • http://www.rebelmouse.com/dwendel Dave Wendel

        The Nexus 5 is totally supported.

        Google: Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012 Original & 2013 New), Nexus 10, Galaxy Nexus; third-party software required or device being rooted.

      Nice

      Not bad, pretty neat and mobile.
      The only thing that concerns me is the little hook lock that’s supposed to attach to your key ring. It looks weak and flimsy. I’ve had similar ones break off before. I’d opt out for something a little more secure.
