    Hello, will a sd card with more memory drain my battery faster than a sd card with less memory? Thank you for your answers.

    Not really. Older cards drew more current than new ones (and had less storage). The card is accessed one block at a time, so whether there are a few of them or a lot of them really doesn't change the amount of current used when accessing a block of the card. Of course, if you have a 256GB card full of movies, it's going to eat a lot of batteries watching all of them, but that's not due to the size of the card, it's due to the fact that you can be using it more.

    Only that the only card I'll ever buy is a SanDisk. If you have a problem, they're as close as SanDisk microSD Tech Support, but I have some 256MB cards (and I might still have some 32MB cards) of theirs that still work. (But who wants such small cards?) The only "problem" I've ever had with one of their cars in all the years I've been buying them is that i was dropping one, grabbed it and snapped it in half (which, of course, they won't replace). But they seem to want to last forever. (SanDisk is the company that invented the technology, and is one of only 2 companies in the world that produce the chips used in them.)

    Tried several brands of cards. The Sandisk and TDK last. They're still alive after years of never having replaced them. I got 16GB and 32GB ones and they're the ones I currently use in my phones and they've survived for at least 3 years now. I don't really need too much storage anyway. The other ones I still have alive are even older 4GB and 8GB Transcend and Kingston ones at around 4-5 years old, but I've had those brands break down after a year as well, so at best they're inconsistent.
