The Pocketmate is a compact version of the ACR38 ID card-reader, currently the top-selling reader on the Belgian market. This design device is easy to open and is plugged directly into the USB port, similar to a standard USB stick. This means it takes up very little space and can easily be carried around – on a keyring, for instance.
