You Charge Your iPhone Anyways, Don’t You?
January 28th, 2011
If you’re anything like me, you may not back up your mobile devices as often as you should; and it’s only until your phone gets stolen, lost, or dropped in a toilet that you realize the errors of your ways. But now, thanks to the popular gadget manufacturer, Iomega, there is a mindless solution to one of our most frustrating problems! Check out our review of the Iomega SuperHero Backup Charging iPhone Dock!
Now available at Amazon.com for under $70 (MSRP), Iomega’s SuperHero Backup and Charger for iPhone does exactly what the title would imply, charges your iPhone while simultaneously backing up your pictures and contacts. However, as blatantly obvious as the product’s name may seem, it doesn’t detail one major feature: Unlike other options that allow you to backup your device, (ie. sync with iTunes) Iomega’s SuperHero saves your data to an included 4GB SD card, which, of course, can be replaced with a larger SD card of your choice. This allows you to sync with multiple iPhones without skipping a beat! (And you don’t have to change the SD card either!) Along with the SD card, the SuperHero comes with an app of the same name which allows you to choose which data gets synched.
You could save the $70 by simply syncing with iTunes, but I mean c’mon, who likes doing that? This mindless solution will be well worth the price once you need it, but until then, it might seem a bit excessive to some…
Overall out of all of the practical solutions to preserve data, this is by far the best on the market. The SuperHero is compatible with the iPhone 4, 3GS, and 3G, and also the third and forth generation iPod Touches.
