Digital Keychain Review


For many years, I have used a keychain that is a photo frame holding a couple of pictures of my kids. I just had an opportunity to check out something that is definitely the “new and improved” version of a photo key chain!

Wholesale sent me a Digital Photo Frame keychain to try out. The keychain itself measures about 2 x 1 1/2 inches—a nice size.  Not too big to stick in a pocket, but big enough to see the pictures. It came with a USB cord that makes it quick and easy to transfer pictures from the computer and to charge.

Main features:

  • 1.5 inch 128x128 LCD display;
  • 4.8 MB internal memory which can store about 72 pictures;
  • Auto / manual picture slide show, slide time adjustable.
  • Manual switch between picture and time display
  • Time display including date, week, hours, minutes and seconds.
  • Time manual adjustable or sync with computer via software.
  • Picture format: JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF;
  • Picture size automatically cut by software.
  • Input / output picture via photo View software included
  • Built-in rechargeable battery
  • Charged / data downloaded via 5 pins USB cable
  • Dimension: 5.5x4.1x1.2cm
  • Weight: 85g

My Thoughts:

It was very quick and easy to upload photos onto the keychain.  I like that the battery is rechargeable. The slide show feature is also very nice. I love that it can hold 72 pictures!

I think the price is great—only $9.95. Some of the fancier models are $14.95. This would be a GREAT gift for grandparents who want to show off photos of their grandchildren!

It was fortunate that the keychain is very intuitive to use because the direction manual was printed in microscopic print and included the awkward English typical of Chinese made product manuals! With the help of my reading glasses, I was able to get the information I needed, though. If you are not a “manual person,” though, you probably won’t use the directions anyway, since the digital keychain is so easy to figure out.

I received this product free for review purposes from Wholesale Keychains. No other compensation was provided and all opinions are my own.
