[ad#review970-top]Card readers are a nice thing to have, but most of them use mini USB connectors. These cables are easy to lose and who wants to carry around a card reader plus an extra USB cable.

The MobileLite comes in the same clear packaging that other Kingston flash drives we reviewed came in. We received the FCR-ML+SD/2GB so our MobileLite also came with a 2GB SD card. On the back there is a list of compatible operating systems.
Opening up the packaging inside we find the MobileLite reader, 2GB SD card, short USB extender, key holder and an installation guide.
