Imation LINK Power Drive gives your iPhone more storage and a spare battery
Imation yesterday announced the Australian availability of its LINK Power Drive, a battery pack for the iPhone that also doubles as an external storage solution. The Power Drive features a 3000mAh rechargeable battery, your choice of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of storage, and a retractable stand to plonk the connected iPhone on while it’s charging.
Using the Power Drive's storage space requires a free companion app dubbed "Power Drive LT". The app can be used to back-up photos and videos from an iPhone's camera roll, as well as for multimedia playback of files copied to it.
The Power Drive is compatible with all Lightning-connector iPhones, starting with the iPhone 5. Use of its companion app does however require the phone to be running at least iOS7. On the other end, the Power Drive connects to PCs using a standard USB 2.0 connector, which is also used to recharge the integrated battery.
The Imation LINK Power Drive is available now from Officeworks. The 16GB model retails for AUD$129.95, the 32GB for AUD$149.95 and the 64GB for AUD$189.95.
