Let’s play out a little scenario for a moment.­­

Tomorrow, you are headed on a two week-long trip to a remote island where you will be ­­relaxing, taking photos with your iPhone, and listening to music, drinking a cocktail, as you watch the ocean for hours on end. Let’s be honest, we all want to head there now.

But as you pack your limited bag as you don’t want to be ‘that guy’ on the plane, leaving behind your laptop and tablet, you realize you won’t have enough space on your iPhone for all the photos plus the music, and even the moves to watch while cramped on the plane. And with limited storage and no expanding microSD slots on the iPhone, you might be a little limited as picking and choosing is the least favorite of any activity when it comes to music.

Well, luckily there is a solution, and one that not only fits in your carryon with ease, but can more than double your iPhone’s storage capacity. Say hello to the SanDisk iXpand flash drive, a small device that can store all your photos, videos, and music, all while providing automatic syncing when plugged in.

There are few devices easier to setup and use with the iPhone, and while you could rely on the cloud based storage, while travelling this is often not an option due to lack of connectivity, data charges, or whatnot. By bringing the external storage to the palm of your hand, you are now in control of your data even on the go. One of the best parts is the SanDisk iXpand Sync app, which doesn’t just act as a gallery but will even play the videos stored, even those in a file format not always popular with iTunes. It’s an incredible alternative

While the situation might be rare, with manufacturers increasingly removing expandable storage from their phones, the SanDisk iXpand makes more and more sense. And as the device is also a USB drive to use on any PC or Mac, it opens so many other opportunities for backup and file storage. From the businessman on the go to the family on a car trip keeping the kids entertained, you can easily transfer presentations and movies to the iXpand and use it on any iPad or iPhone with a lightning connector.

My favorite aspect as I have been prone to lose or break a phone on the go is the backup and restore feature, syncing automatically between my device all my photos, videos, and camera roll, as well as my contacts. In the event that I lose my phone, or drop it in the ocean, my photos are still all secure on the iXpand.

Honestly, it makes your iPhone or iPad even more useful. Available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and even 128GB, there are plenty of possibilities to add this powerful little stick to your daily life. We like it so much, we have worked with SanDisk to provide an incredible deal to all our readers. Want to get your iXpand today?
