Many of us use the cloud to transfer and store many of our files for numerous reasons. However, there are times when you may need quick access to a file and you don’t have an Internet connection, or want to share files with someone else on a different ecosystem. While there are many apps to do that, The Power Company has introduced the Flex-Card – a portable universal data storage device which lets you transfer pictures, videos, music, and other files between Windows, Android, and iOS devices.
Using a USB 3.0 connection, the Flex-Card fits in your wallet and allows you to copy, move, cut, paste, delete, and rename files, backup your photos, videos and music from your Mac or PC, stream music or movies directly from the Flex-Card to your phone, tablet, or computer, and even lets you charge your Windows, Android, or iOS device using your computer without the need for a charging cord. Slightly smaller than a credit card, this universal data storage device includes iPhone 30-pin and 8-pin Lightning connectors, microUSB, USB 3.0, and USB-C connectors to cover pretty much any device you can think of.
“With all the problems people have experienced with the Cloud and browser based storage, the Flex-Card should make technology users feel more secure by not utilizing an Internet connection.”
– Gene Aikens, Flex-Card Designer.
