A great concept with a faulty execution.
I’ve always been a fan of products that can pull double duty. I think it’s great that a product can complete more than one task at a time. One set of products that can do this is the iXPand series of products from SanDisk. This family of products allows the user to backup their phone while completing a secondary task at the same time. I recently had the opportunity to test out the Wireless Charger Sync which is part of the iXPand family. With this device, you can charge your phone while backing it up.
The iXPand Wireless Charger Sync from SanDisk is available in three capacities — 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB. The charger part of the device supports fast wireless charging for Qi-compatible smartphones including iPhones and phones from Samsung. While your phone is charging, it will also automatically back up photos and videos directly to the charger. The charger delivers up to 10W of power. Every time you charge your phone will also be backed up, which can provide extra space on your phone. Once your phone has backed up, you can delete those files and free up space on your phone.
The iXPand Wireless Charger Sync comes with a high-efficiency power plug with a 6-foot cable. The charger also supports personal backup profiles for different users so that multiple family members can utilize them. The charger supports wireless charging through cases up to 3mm thick. It’s important to note that magnetic or metal attachments will prevent charging.
