PQI debuts the iConnect mini flash drive
The popular maker of peripheral devices, memory and video cards PQI has announced the new iConnect Mini Lighting flash drive for Apple devices. The new flash drive offers large storage capacities in a chassis that is incredibly small – the iConnect measures just 44.6 x 12.6 x 8 mm (1.5 x 0.5 x 0.25 inches) which is about the size of an average person’s thumb.
The new PQI flash drive offers capacities of up to 128 GB as well as a one button photo and video back up function that allows users to back up all photos and videos stored on an iPhone, iPad or iPod within minutes. This can be done automatically or manually. When the iConnect Mini is attached to an iPhone, it can automatically save all images and videos directly to the device, so that the iPhone storage capacity is not impacted and remains untouched. For added security, the iConnect Mini supports the Apple Touch ID security, using an individual’s unique finger print to prevent others from accessing or altering any of your images and videos.
“Independent research has reported that the average iPhone owner uses their camera app at least 3 times a day. With the average picture size from an iPhone 6S at nearly 3MB, and the most popular iPhone storage capacity being only 16GB, it’s easy to see why 64% of iPhone users want more storage space.” proclaimed PQI Global CEO, Spencer Chiu. “The iConnect Mini’s tiny size makes it easier to carry it in your pocket or on a keychain to dramatically increase your storage capacity and avoid the dreaded, “Cannot Take Photo”, prompt when you are trying to use the camera app on your iPhone.”
The new PQI iConnect device has been made to match your iPhone color and this is the reason why the flash drive is available in gray, gold and rose gold colors. The device also has a 360-degree rotating cap that conveniently protects the connector when not in use and can be attached to a keychain or carrier for easier transportation and storage.
