Western Digital’s mobile-focused brand, SanDisk announced Wednesday its new iXpand Wireless Charger. It comes with a distinction: the ability to backup multimedia files locally.
While you wait for your phone to run out of power, the device creates a second copy of your most important data, such as photos, videos, and contacts, in the accessory itself. Check out the following video:
The iXpand has a fast-charging capacity of up to 10 W and has a slim design – 19.51 mm. In addition, the device has three storage options: 64, 128 or 256 GB.
The backup starts automatically when the smartphone is charged. However, it is still unclear whether the accessory is connected to the user’s Wi-Fi, or creates a separate network to pair with the phone.
The accessory is now available in the UK, in the 128 GB and 256 GB versions, at prices of £ 90 and £ 130. The figures for the United States have not yet been released by SanDisk.
To top it all off, there’s a dedicated iXpand app with the functions of managing files in the uploader and restoring them on your smartphone. The app can be downloaded from the card links below the text.
