The iUSBport by Hyperdrive (formerly known as CloudFTP) is a device that allows you to create your own Cloud storage that can be shared with connected WiFi devices including iPhones, iPads, Android devices and computers. It supports most USB storage devices including flash drives, external hard drives and card readers.
The iUSBport does not require a WiFi network but it can connect to an existing network and have its connected storage shared on the network. Its primary function is to allow mobile devices to connect to and access files on an external storage device. The iUSBport comes with its own built-in 2,600 mAh rechargeable battery that can power USB devices up to 5 hours.
The iUSBport has one undocumented feature that makes it a handy device for photographers. It can be used to duplicate the data on a storage card to a hard drive without the need for a laptop computer. All you need is a hub, a card reader and an external HDD. Connect everything to the iUSBport and use an iOS or Android device to duplicate the data from the storage card to the HDD. Not only can you save money on buying extra storage cards, it acts as a safeguard just in case you lose your camera with the storage card. If that happens, all you lose are the photos for the last day while the rest are safely backed up to your HDD.
