Need to carry a lot of data offline, but don’t have an SD card slot on your phone? There was a time when you were stuck without a solution in sight to that problem. Now, the options for external mobile storage is starting to grow and we’re seeing more sophisticated solutions in the space. If you prefer having access to additional content without a dongle sticking out the side of your phone, you might be interested in the new SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick.
A portable network-attached storage, it offers a full 128GB of space that you can access wirelessly over WiFi, allowing you to keep a whole load of content on standby. Whether you want to carry a stash of movies for a long trip, all of your music on the go, or just need a place to dump all the video clips you record on your phone, this thing lets you have that without the hassle of dongles and wires.
The SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick is styled to look like an ordinary thumb drive, so it’s small enough to keep in your pocket or hang on a key fob. Up to three devices can connect on its WiFi network at a time, allowing you and two other friends to enjoy whatever content you have saved inside. Like many mobile gadgets, though, battery is a concern, since it only packs enough to keep the WiFi hotspot running for up to 4.5 hours. If you carry a power bank around, however, that shouldn’t be a problem, since you can simply plug it in like a thumb drive to juice it back up to working order.
Available now, the 128GB SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick is priced at $99.99.
