Is it possible to make a Moto G case that connects to the MicroUSB port, which in turn gives it MicroSDHC/XC card support (cards would be plugged into the case itself) and Charging capability? I'd imagine that the case would be a tad on the thick side, which could be beneficial for the sake of protecting the case.
I know. I am actually surprised that one hasn't been made yet. I am no engineer of any sort, but I am hoping someone sees this and actually gets inspired to make one. I am sure that they would make a killing, because I would buy one for my Moto G in a heartbeat.
Borrowing the idea of the battery charging cases that I've seen made for iPhone devices, why can't there something like this be made with a similar design for the Moto G? Just replace the lighting connector with a MicroUSB one, and then add on a MicroSDHC/SDXC card reader slot to the pack somewhere? So now you have a case that is also an extra battery AND has the ability to mount and use MicroSDHC cards.
The tricky part is doing both at the same time. OTOH the USB-OTG standard is meant for the host device to power the guest and not receive power while doing it. Just tried my OTG adapter with a powered USB hub on my Note 2 to be sure and it's not charging.
