Two New Card Readers Expand Growing Family of USB-C Connectivity Products Enabling Users to Transition to the Latest USB-C-Enabled Devices Without Rendering Legacy Peripherals and Accessories Useless

LAS VEGAS. - January 9, 2018 - IOGEAR, a manufacturer of innovative information technology products for consumers and small- to medium-sized businesses, today announced the addition of the GFR3C11 Compact USB-C 2-in-1 SD & MicroSD Card Reader/Writer and GFR3C12 USB-C Duo Card Reader/Writer to its comprehensive portfolio of USB-C connectivity products. IOGEAR will showcase its industry-leading family of USB-C connectivity products at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), January 9-12, 2018, at the Las Vegas Convention, Center Central Hall (booth 14748).

The innovative GFR3C12 (MSRP $14.95), which supports both USB-C Android mobile devices and USB-C-enabled computers, permits users to transfer data and images between mobile devices and computers. Supporting USB On-The-Go (OTG) technology, the GFR3C12 facilitates file transfers to and from SD and MicroSD cards, and between USB-C-enabled Android mobile devices and laptops with USB Type-A, USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 ports.

The lightweight and portable GFR3C11 (MSRP $12.95) is a 2-in-1 SD and MicroSD Card Reader/Writer that connects to USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 ports on a laptop enabling users to easily transfer files to or from an SD or MicroSD card. The SD slot is compatible with multiple card types including SDHC, MMC, RS-MMC, SDXC, and UHS-I, and the MicroSD slot supports SDHC and Micro SDHX without the need for additional adapters.

"USB-C technology brings a variety of benefits to consumer devices including faster data transfer speeds, the ability to provide more power to devices, and a small connector that allows devices to be thinner and lighter than ever before," explained Richard Liang, Senior Product Manager at IOGEAR. "The downside to USB-C is that the vast majority of peripherals and accessories are based on legacy interfaces that are not compatible with USB-C, essentially rendering those devices incompatible with a USB-C-enabled laptop. IOGEAR offers a wide variety of adapters and docking stations that allow users to upgrade to the latest USB-C-enabled laptops and continue to use their existing peripherals such as USB drives, 4K monitors, keyboards, and speakers."

IOGEAR's comprehensive family of USB-C products makes it possible for consumers and business users to upgrade to the next generation of ultra-slim, high-performance USB-C-enabled laptop computers without having to worry about making their existing monitors, devices and accessories obsolete.
