    So finally received Card Reader/USB HUB, it works perfectly, but sometimes phone restart is required to activate Hub, maybe because i am on 25r update. Hub plastic feels very good quality, it has soft feeling to it.
    here is picture of it

    and on the second picture you can see that it supports power supply from OnePlus power adapter. It does not charge the phone, but decrease power consumption when mouse/keyboard is connected to HUB. White cable is not in bundle, got it from other Hub.

    Interesting. You chose hub over cable / adapter.

    Do I need to root my phone for this? I saw an app that allowed you to plug in usb flash drives, but it required the phone to be rooted...

    it doesn't required root for FAT formatted flash drives for sure if you want to plug in large storage device like 3TB you need to root and use one app that reads NFTS
    mine reads SD cards fine, sometimes it takes time like 30s to connect to SD card, guess OPO scans it before showing it, tested on 4gb SD HC card Formated to FAT32
    one time it required to restart OPO to show up
    tested on 25R and 33R
    the SD connector is in opposite side than sticker on sd card as in picture below

    No you don't need to root the phone. If you just want to use a USB flash drive you can buy an otg adapter cheap on amazon. Your USB shows up on the phone as it would do on a computer. Its good for films etc

    @Greenas it works for me now just needed to give it a good shove in there and I love how they included a dc cable that plugs in to usb.

    Interesting! ;)
    Is this product able to supply power to portable hard drive (without external power supply) using only its 5V connector?

    I'd like to see a 3D printed back cover with something like that built in :) Maybe use zero force pins to make connection. :)

    @Greenas: what average transfer speed can you reach while copying between a microSD card and an external HDD (or SSD)? I'm curious whether a full charge of the OnePlus One is enough to last for the backup of a 64GB microSD card to an external HDD/SDD. :) And of course without using any external support (powerbank, etc.).
