RAVPower designs unique, high-quality, low-cost backup power devices. To my knowledge, they created the very first backup battery-flashlight hybrid. Now they’ve done something else entirely – their newest device integrates a miniature WiFi file server into a backup battery: The RAVPower RP-WD01. The WD01 retails for $44.99 on Amazon.

A variety of backup batteries inhabit marketplaces, but to my knowledge, no other company manufactures a storage-drive battery-bank hybrid. However, I did see a power bank/projector, but no other company manufactures a WiFi storage drive combined with a backup battery. Even compared to the weird gizmos I’ve seen on eBay, the WD01 is an extraordinarily exotic device.

The WD01 can charge mobile devices and function as a standalone wireless storage drive, but do you need both features in the same package? And is it worth the money?

Initial Impressions

It’s important to note that unlike the Corsair Voyager Air and Patriot Gauntlet we tested Corsair Voyager Air and Patriot Gauntlet 320 Comparative Review and Giveaway Corsair Voyager Air and Patriot Gauntlet 320 Comparative Review and Giveaway Portable hard drives are much more today than a simple enclosure with a wimpy USB 2.0 connection. Modern portable hard drive enclosures support numerous wired interfaces such as USB 3.0, eSATA, or even Thunderbolt; as... Read More , the RAVPower RP-WD01 isn’t fitted with any onboard flash memory or hard drive. It acts as a wireless file server, allowing you to insert SD cards, connect USB flash drives and portable hard drives, and access the data from your computer or mobile device.

It comes in two boxes, the first fitted inside of the second, like a Matryoshka Doll. Inside of the second box lay the RP-WD01. It’s a slim, rectangular box, about the same size as a 2.5-inch hard drive or smartphone. Held under bright light, its piano-white finish displays a lustrous sheen. Aesthetically, it’s a very simple and straightforward design. It features four LED status indicator lights: A green battery status light, and blue WiFi, transfer and Internet display lights.

  • Single band 802.11b/g/n WiFi
  • SD slot

  • USB 1 Amp I just wanoutput port
  • Samsung-branded, 3,000 mAh lithium-ion battery

Getting Started with the RAVPower RP-WD01

Getting started with the RAVPower RP-WD01 doesn’t require much effort. There are two ways of using it: Either as a backup battery or a wireless storage drive.

Backup Battery

To recharge your device, simply plug it into your smartphone or tablet using its USB port. From there, it will begin recharging.

WiFi Storage Drive

To access the storage drive, you must perform a setup and configuration process or, alternatively, access it as a WiFi device (which I prefer).

Accessing The RP-WD01

There are two ways that you can wirelessly access the flash storage device on the WD01. First, by connecting to the devices wirelessly through your desktop, smartphone or tablet; second, through a mobile application, such as the Android app RAV FileHub and AirStor, the iOS app.

ravpower wd01 review

On a Windows desktop, I simply connected to the device’s WiFi access point ‘WiFiSD-XXXX’ (accessed through wireless networks) and then entered the password ‘11111111’. This step causes the connection to your router to drop off, as you are now connected to the WD01. The device then can be accessed through your web browser by visiting ‘10.10.10.254’. After that, I logged in (username: admin; password: none) and then gained access to the drive. At this point, you can also set a password and change the username. Instead of accessing the drive through a browser, you may also use RAVPower’s custom application, MobileFun.

my wifi disk

For those of you seeking to connect through your mobile device, the process is the same, and obviates the use of an app.

There exist a great many ways of interacting with the files stored on the WD01. For additional set up and configuration tips, I suggest reading the extended manual, which includes information on using both the WD01 and your local network simultaneously.

Performance

The WP01 possesses two distinct functions – first, as a file-server, second, as a backup battery. The WD01 offers a method to wirelessly sync files between mobile devices and/or desktops, without resorting to an external cloud server. For mobiles devices lacking SD card support, such as the Nexus series or many iOS devices, the WD01 offers a unique solution to a very serious design flaw.

ravpower wd01 review

File Server Performance

As a file server, the WD01 functions as well as one might expect. After a semi-lengthy, although uncomplicated, setup process, I found it quite easy to access and stream media files through my browser. It’s best seen as a simple location to store files which one can access via mobile device (or desktop). It also supports simultaneous connection of up to five devices.

On the downside, the custom software used to link the WP01 to desktops needs more visual polish. Although functional and easy to use, its graphical interface appears far less polished than the mobile apps available. On the other hand, you can access the WD01 using any file explorer capable of interacting with SAMBA or SMB connections (read our article on setting up streaming techologies, such as SMB Top Free Ways to Stream Video from Your Computer to Your Mobile or Tablet Top Free Ways to Stream Video from Your Computer to Your Mobile or Tablet Have a bunch of video files on your computer but want to watch them on your tablet? Not a problem. Read More ). Given the ease of accessing the drive through a browser or file explorer, the accompanying software is entirely optional.

ravpower wd01 review

The WP01 should work with any mobile device, including Blackberry and Windows Phone. For iOS and Android mobile devices, there exist two apps that automate the connection process:

  • Android: Connecting to the WD01 can be done using either your favorite file application, through a web browser or using RAVPower’s RAV Filehub app. The connection process is incredibly simple. Just connect to the ‘WiFiSD-XXXX’ WiFi network and input the password, which is blank, without additional configuration.
  • iOS: RAVPower also publishes a pairing app that you can find in their app store: AirStor. However, I was unable to test this app, and cannot speak as to its quality. Reviews generally favor the app, though. As a side note: for those of you getting poor battery life on iOS 7 What Can You Do About Poor Battery Life in iOS 7? What Can You Do About Poor Battery Life in iOS 7? You'll be pleased to know there are a few steps you can take to make your phone last longer under iOS 7, though they'll cost you in terms of shiny new features. Read More , you might be better off adjusting your settings.

USB Drive Performance

Accessing the WP01 on a Windows 7 machine through USB didn’t require much work at all. I simply connected the device and my files were accessible as an external storage device. Transfer speeds were on par with writing to flash memory over a USB cable, at around 3-3.5 MB/s.

ravpower wd01 review

It’s also worth noting that you can connect both an SD card and a USB flash storage device – these show up as separate drives. While many desktop users might scoff at the utility of such a feature, this adds a great deal of value to mobile users who lack both SD card and USB drive slots.

Backup Battery Performance

RAVPower recommends discharging and charging the battery four to five times before it reaches its maximum performance. I only discharged it twice, but found it performed as expected pretty much out of the box. After plugging it in to a standard USB port, the WP01 managed to recharge in about 3-4 hours, which is about right for a 3,000 mAh battery. Using the USB cable included with the battery, I found that the battery charged a Nexus 7 (4,325 mAh battery) in a slightly longer period amount of time (more than four hours).

For a 3,000 mAh battery, the WD01 borders on the bulky, although its slim form factor grants it a high degree of portability. It fits inside of most coat and pants pockets, although with not a great deal of room remaining.

ravpower wd01 review

A note of caution: I must warn against using a short-length USB cable. Short-length USB cables provide less electrical resistance, and therefore there’s less loss of power when energy transfers between the battery bank and your device. However, I’ve noticed that short-length cables tend to cause the battery bank to overheat, which might prove disastrous. I tried a short-length cable with the WD01 and didn’t experience any overheating. If you prefer the efficiency of a short-length cable, as a precaution, I would read up on the potential dangers that an overcharged battery can cause.

Should you buy the RAVPower RP-WD01 Wireless File Hub and Power Bank?

The RAVPower RP-WD01 provides a unique device in the sea of backup batteries available to consumers. In my experience, it’s a well-designed, highly functional device with few vices. While the pairing software and process need a bit more visual polish (such as drag-and-drop functionality), the overall experience feels seamless and efficient.

For what you pay ($44.99) on Amazon, the WD01 absolutely kills as a multifunctional device. While the onboard storage won’t hold much more than the size of the SD card or flash drive that you use, it’s great for keeping important documents that you may need to access wirelessly from a mobile device lacking an SD card slot. I highly recommend the device for mobile professionals who occasionally need to access information held on an SD card. As backup battery, the 3,000 mAh capacity is enough to fully charge most smartphones and many tablets.

Our verdict of the RAVPower RP-WD01:
MakeUseOf recommends: The WD01 fulfills a unique niche in the Android and iOS ecosphere by providing both a means of charging your device on-the-go while also giving both USB and SD card support.

    No, while at school, my carrier signal dies off and comes back on. Plus the school's wifi makes my phone want to switch back and forth all the time between a carrier signals and a wifi signal that it can't login to simply because I have to leave the sign-in for my laptop! There are many times, despite the fact I'll have the sound off, when my phone will let out a loud beep, and it will be the battery warning.

    I use a mil-spec Samsung flip phone, so I normally get days of battery time unless I talk on it a lot. I use a battery pack when I am away from home for a few days, and for other USB powered and chargeable devices. I also like to have one around for friends whose phone batteries are always running low. Having one that would also act as wireless storage would be great. My only problem with the review is that it did not say what the maximum capacity of the card slot was.

    I usually don't have any problems with phone usage and recharging and my phone is well able to last the day. Don't currently use a battery pack but I'd probably use some of the other smartphone features more if I had a backup like this.

    My phone lasts a day in normal condition, anyway I also buy for me a backup battery because if I play games continuously, it can't bear over 5 hours.

    I can last a day easily on my Nexus 5 most days but I do own one of these RP-WD01's for the portable NAS capability. I love this thing and would love to win one more for a present to someone

    My phone does not last through a whole day, it lasts barely 7-8 hours, yet it is the only phone I can use because it uses Qualcomm's Qchat PTT platform on Nextel Mexico, would really win the power bank for it and my 2012 Nexus 7 :D

    I use a battery case for my iPhone. My battery would last all day if it were used only for phone calls. However, I use it for so many other things that it does not make it through the day without my using the back up battery or charging it.

  110. Rocco
    January 28, 2014 at 10:37 pm

    My phone typically makes it through the day easily, but this would be a nice "just in case"

  111. Dan D
    January 28, 2014 at 10:06 pm

    Yes all the time under heavy use. I would think a device worth that much should be able to last longer. The battery pack is nice but it's the same situation but now I need to charge two devices now.

  112. Va D
    January 28, 2014 at 9:57 pm

    Yes and yes, but barely. I did have to buy a phone case that had a battery to improve the battery life.

  113. Joyce

  132. Gord M
    January 28, 2014 at 7:24 pm

    No my phone battery will not last all day. I don't use a battery, but do carry my charging cord and need to plug in a couple of times per day.

  133. Bjørnar B

    I keep a hot spot around so I can usually bump my signal. My phone battery lasts all day, but I don't use mine constantly and I keep all the extra apps off whenever not in use.

  138. Prabhdeep S
    January 28, 2014 at 7:01 pm

    No, I have a Nexus 4 and I hate to plug at every wall outlet I find to prevent its battery from running out on me when I am out of my house!! I don't own any battery pack!!

  139. Mai T

    Neither my LG or Lumia's battery last for 1 day, I have to charge at least once a day.

    My note II can survive a day, but under heavy use, it can become problematic.

  141. Ismael R
    January 28, 2014 at 6:36 pm

    I have a Note II and it's battery is larger enough to go most of the day...most days. I have an external battery that I use to charge on the go, if needed. If I won this, it would mainly be for media sharing between it and either my Phone or Nexus 7...since Google's infinite wisdom doesn't allow for expandable memory.

    Depending on what I do with it, my phone's battery will usually last a couple of days. Sometimes it'll almost last a full week, if I don't use it for anything other than the occasional text message.

  146. German Lopez

    January 28, 2014 at 5:06 pm

    Generally, my phone lasts the day, but I keep mobile data and GPS turned off. However, when we went to Disney World, I used a battery case, which barely got me through the day using data and GPS regularly.

  153. Tamara Burks
    January 28, 2014 at 5:02 pm

  155. Paul H

  156. Kathy Nitchals
    January 28, 2014 at 4:47 pm

    Depends on how Im using it. I have an extra battery I try to keep charged and handy, but we know how that goes. More electical points would be a
    blessing because we can never find one when we need it!!

  161. Chris K
    January 28, 2014 at 4:25 pm

    My phone can last quite awhile, more than a day. Unfortunately it lacks the available storage. I love my phone, but I want a portable device that isn't for charging but more of an extended drive, where I can access and stream data to my mobile device.

  162. Miguel
    January 28, 2014 at 4:23 pm

    I usually leave it charging overnight, plus I have a car charger, so I rarely have issues.

    My phone is several years old now. I've replaced the battery, but the phone itself is getting a bit flaky. If I have reflashed it recently, and therefore no background processes are getting stuck and keeping the processor working full speed and non-stop, the battery in my phone can last the day. Once a process pegs CPU usage though, the battery has less than two hours to live.

  180. Dany B

  185. Cassie S
    January 28, 2014 at 1:50 pm

    Mine usually lasts the day, but I do keep it plugged in while I'm in the car. Otherwise using the GPS kills it.
