external card slot

I thought I would separate this to a thread on it's own in case someone has a mod for this.
Although 32Gb is probably enough for most people. What if you bought the lesser storage model and realized it wasn't enough. It would be great to mod the new kobo's to have an external card slot.

So my idea, attach an empty micro sd adapter slot to the existing micro usb memory. Now I don't know if you can just attach two 8Gb sd cards and get 16Gb's out of it, or attach a 32Gb to the 8Gb and get 40Gb's. Maybe you can, I've never done it.
Maybe this hub solution will give some ideas https://petapixel.com/2017/10/03/put...d-card-hub-50/

But at least then we'd have a slot to insert extra memory cards and books on our new kobos. This would of course require us to open up the kobo and void the warranty.
But the idea is to cut a hole in the side so we can install one of these https://www.digikey.ca/product-detai...SABEgJSlvD_BwE for the addition of extra memory cards.
