SD card reader for iPhone

Anyone recommend one that works? I want to be able to play back videos on my iPhone from an SD card from my dash cam.

Not sure. If it were me, I would probably buy all the available ones, test & then return

With the Apple Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader, I can read pictures that are taken with my Canon Powershot camera, and import them on my iPad when I went on trips. I have had my camera stolen before and I would not leave home without my SD card reader for my iPad (or iPhone as it's compatible with both). The adapter works with videos taken on my camera as well.

Unlike before where you have to import the photos/videos into your Photos Library, you can now use iOS's Files app to copy the files from the SD card and paste them onto any of the available Locations. For example, if you have your OneDrive or Dropbox set up with the Files app, you can paste the files directly to these services.

OK thanks maybe I’ll just try the Apple one first although it’s double the price of any of the third-party options and only has the one input format
