Your Essential Guide to SD & Micro-SD Cards

Available in both branded and unbranded versions, SD & Micro-SD Cards provide additional memory for a range of digital devices. A typical application for them is to provide storage for digital cameras. You can soon fill up the memory of your camera by shooting lots of photos or long sections of video and audio. If you are not able to download the data from the device immediately, then a spare SD card can be exchanged for the one in the device, thereby allowing you to go on recording without any loss of data. Cards like these are compact but act in a similar fashion to common flash USB memory sticks. A typical card of the type will store anything from 8 to 128 Gigabytes of memory. You can use them in your mobile phone to store anything from pictures to contact records and we have plenty of types for you to choose between.

What's the Difference Between an SD and a Micro-SD Card?

As the name implies, a Micro-SD card is smaller than the conventional version. In fact, Micro-SD cards measure just 15mm by 11mm by 1mm. As you might expect, they are principally designed to function in smaller or handheld devices where space is at a premium. Therefore, you are likely to find that a Micro-SD card slot is designed for a smaller tablet, such as those which have a 7-inch screen. Due to their smaller size, Micro-SD cards tend to have a limited storage capacity, although developers have since launched the SDHC format, which stands for "secure digital high capacity". The data capacities of these memory cards are increasing with each passing year.
