If you’re anything like me, your smart phone is like an extra arm. It’s basically become a part of me and having it out of sight almost makes me panic (except of course when I wisely put it away for the night to get some much-needed rest…). Using it for all-the-things all-day long means I’m constantly needing to plug it in and make sure it’s charged, which is why I have a charger in most rooms of the house plus my car. That’s all fine, except that sometimes the cable comes loose and then doesn’t actually charge the phone, it gets unplugged by someone (ahem, husband), and I still end up with a phone that’s almost dead at some very inconvenient moment of the day. To add to the fully-charged-phone dilemma, I’m constantly worrying if all the photos and videos I’ve taken of my kiddos have actually been backed up as they’re supposed to be, leaving me in another panic! So, what if there was a wireless charger that not only easily charged my phone throughout the day, but also had an automatic backup function to make sure that I never lost any pics of my sweet 3 year old riding her scooter…enter, the Ixpand Wireless Charger Sync from SanDisk, the world’s first wireless charger with automatic local back up.
How does it work?
Honestly, it’s the first tech gadget I now own that I never knew I needed. To be able to effortlessly place my phone on the charging station and see it start to charge makes my heart so happy, much happier than when a cable falters back and forth between charging and not charging. The app it comes with was super easy to use. Between the 30 seconds it took to download, the 3 seconds it took to connect my phone to the device, and the 2 seconds it took to start backing up my phone (in full resolution!), I could feel the relief of knowing that all of my precious memories were being stored somewhere safe and secure. This all literally happened with maybe 3 taps, and then the backup happens automatically every time you charge your phone. Genius.
I’ll admit, I probably take too many photos, but having them stored somewhere so easily and effortlessly is such a breath of fresh air. The charging station has 256GB of space, so I know that my thousand and thousand of images will be safe. Plus, this requires no internet connection to backup, since it works via Bluetooth, so you will have your photos backed up no matter what your wifi signal looks like.
What’s amazing is that I was able to create two different back up profiles; one for me and one for my husband, so that we can both use the station to easily charge our phone AND back up our images without worrying about things getting mixed up. So cool. Also, if you’re really just wanting that easy spot to charge your phone and go, SanDisk also makes a charge-only iXpand Wireless Charger15W. There are zero monthly fees for any of these devices either – maybe we get both?!
