Storage, storage, storage. It’s one thing that we gadget geeks can never get enough of. Well, that and battery power of course.
Here’s the thing folks… as our devices get better and better and as the cameras of our smartphones are constantly upgraded with better sensors and higher megapixel capabilities, the file sizes of our photos and videos naturally get bigger. There’s no problem with that. By all means, anything better is always welcome. The dilemma lies in our device’s storage space. Storage has to keep up with the pace of how fast our hardware is improving.
Expandable memories such as Micro SD Cards are great but they slow down the performance of devices to a certain degree which is somewhat of a bummer. This is one of the reasons why a good number of smartphone and tablet manufacturers (like Apple) opt to take the built-in storage route instead.
If you’re one who enjoys photography, listening to offline music and dabbles in a lot of videography, storage limitation could prove to be a huge problem. Backing up and transferring media files can be quite a headache. It’s tedious and very tiring.
If you find yourself nodding and agreeing to some of the things I’m talking about right now, then what I’m about to introduce to you may well be considered a lifesaver.
I’d like you to meet the family of PhotoFast i-FlashDrive HD devices. They are as small as they are simple to use. But the benefits of having any of these devices on hand is immensely valuable.

PhotoFast iFlashDrive MAX U3
I actually did a review on this device’s predecessor (The PhotoFast i-FlashDrive HD). And while I was impressed with that older model, the latest iteration is a hell of a lot better. The PhotoFast iFlashDrive MAX U3 (USB3.0) is composed of a central piece that’s just a bit over an inch long, with a Lightning jack on one end and a USB Type A one on the other. Including the two jacks, this device is only under 2 inches long, less than an inch wide, and a quarter inch thick, making it easy to carry in your pocket. There is a removable clear plastic cover for the full size USB jack, but the designers went for a more advanced solution to protect the Lightning jack: a clear plastic cover is pulled out and then pivots to one side. It is available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB and storage capacities.
