iExpander provides iPhone with a better flash, microSD card slot, and twice the battery life

0. phoneArena 13 Sep 2012, 09:44 posted on

Yes, we know that it is iPhone 5 season, but this iPhone 4S accessory we spotted on Kickstarter seems too cool to be overlooked. It is called the iExpander and makes your iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S better in more than one way. First up, the accessory comes equipped with a battery that is identical to the one inside the iPhone 4S, so you have twice the power to get you through a day of extensive use. However, that is just the beginning...

I guess the extra bulk would be worth it in the long run. I would buy it if I had an iPhone.

The extra flash and Micro SD card slot is the biggest selling point.

If all apple can do is sue people to keep their product bland, than I shall buy something other than.

The iPhone should already come with removeable storage - just like 99% of all the other phones out there...

Come on Apple, its 2012, not 2007 (and no MMS and 3G) all over again....

Uh huh....uh huh...uh huh...ok. So it's basically not iP5's accessory... Somebody just realized it is better to do something for the iP4 series than to enhance anything for the iP5.
And i have to agree with you, antmiu2...that can be done.

Thats right, lets pay $100 for a case that gives us all the functionality of an Android phone......

Removeable storage? Whats that? Who needs it?.... (sarcasm) :p

Would rather buy a phone which eliminates the need to buy these sort of accessories.

Afaik iOS doesn't have Fat32 nor NTFS drivers or even a file manager, so how will people even browse the MicroSD card?

This look like an Expansion to a Moto Razr Maxx... Battery, micro SD, dual flash (though the iphone's camera is better)...

If only this would let you boot to Jelly Bean.....

That's a sweet accessory. I wish a quality accessory like that would come out for the Galaxy Nexus.

you know this would also sound great for android phones that lack SD card support start production for htc one please and the nexus phones as well with no SD card support. Iphones always get the gadgets first.
