Product overview

• This tiny Bluetooth dongle is designed with all laptop users in mind• Tiny size means you can leave it in your laptop!• Ideal for PC-to-PC transfer• Synchronise with a Bluetooth enabled PDA / mobile phone• Wirelessly print documents on a Bluetooth enabled printer• Bluetooth V2.0 EDR (Enhanced Data Rate)• Bluetooth Class I provides up to 100 metre range• USB v2.0 interface• Up to 2.1Mbps data speed• Windows XP and above compliant• Dimensions: 23(l) x 13.7(w) x 4.5(d) mm

The miniature size of this dongle means you can leave it plugged in to your laptop, yet still fit your laptop in it’s case without the extrusion preventing the laptop case from closing properly. The 100 metre range provided by the Class I chipset makes it ideal for use in larger office environments.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pig in a poke After being impressed by its claims for its Bluetooth to extend to 100metres, I bought it and proceeded to try to interpret the Chinese-English booklet. Afte downloading an updated version and paying $27 for it, I was unable to set up a network and unable to transfer files between my PCs and my Apple MacBook Pro. I laboured at this task off and on for four days and finally gave up. The internet has very little practical instructions on setting up networks that I can understand. A complete step-by-step instruction guide in English would be nice *with nothing assumed or omitted). I use Windows7 and Snow Leopard. Help??

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't get it to work on Windows Vista I am pretty competent with computers but I haven't worked out a way to get this dongle to work on my PC, despite installing the software that came with it. Additionally, a couple of weeks after installing the software decided to run in 'evaluation' mode and request a licence key. If there was a licence key in the packaging it was long thrown away by the time the message came up. Since I can't get the software to work anyway it's moot. If I uninstall the software and try to use the dongle with Vista's own bluetooth driver my PC crashes. I've given up wasting time on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little device for the money. My PC is connected to an amplifier and speakers. I can now play audio on my Android tablet through my PC/ amp & speakers with superb quality, and it only took a couple of minutes to set up.

I have 1 of these dongles, is it compatible with Windows 10 as it keeps popping up with " it may not be a licensed version.

Asked by: graham
The licence to which you refer is for the bundled software (which is not required for the dongle to operate)

I bought this dongle and it came with BlueSoleil V7 software - however it keeps asking me for an activation code. Where do I get this?

Asked by: Naoise
I bought a Tiny 100m BT Dongle from Maplins, Edinburgh months ago - supplied with driver, not a trial. It is a BlueSoleil device - same as above? The label on the packet has several numbers: "1", "G032", "A63HY", and "206-28343". I've paid for it, yet it often refuses to operate until I buy a licence - Maplins say (above) this as a known issue, the suggested fix doesn't work for long, I keep having to reload it, and it takes several goes each time. Can you please send me a driver (or other fix) that doesn't think I owe you for something I've already bought?

Does this come with a software CD? I ask simply because I have purchased a couple of BT dongles recently and have had issues locating suitable drivers. I am running Windows Vista, 32 bit

Asked by: BillyG
Yes the item is supplied with a mini CD with drivers for Windows XP and above.
