I tried a number of these "all-in-one" download devices and was amazed at the horrible slowness of the transfer from the SD card, even those professing to have USB 3. When out for full day, 300-400 images would not be unheard of and that slow copy rate was a deal breaker.

Finally I sent them all back and bought myself a small 11" Lenovo Windows laptop that weighs about 2.5 lbs, and fits easily in the back pocket of my camera bag or into my carry on. It has enough power for running my Olympus Workspace software for culling out images at the days end, and has USB C for fast transfer from the SD card to my small external hard drive. Cost me about $250. My bigger laptop stays home, now.
