Crowdfunded ExoDrive case adds a microSD slot to your phone



Just because your handset has 32GB or 64GB of native storage doesn't mean that you can't use additional memory. Now in the process of being crowdfunded on Kickstarter, the ExoDrive case could be the solution to your memory problem. Designed for a number of high-end Android phones, the ExoDrive case comes with a built-in microSD slot that has a 128GB capacity.

This device looks like a sure thing to be funded. With a $7885 USD goal, the product has raised $7171 USD with 23 days to go. ExoDrive supports SD, SDHC & SDXC cards and a pledge of $20 USD will allow you to receive an ExoDrive case in black. A pledge of $28 USD will also allow you to receive a case, but the extra $8 USD lets you choose from one of the three colors it will be available in, black, grey or white. The device will be shipped in March.

The Android models that will support the ExoDrive include some handsets like the HTC One (M8), that already have a 128GB capacity microSD slot on board. Other phones include both generations of the Motorola Moto X, Motorola Moto G, Nexus 6, Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G2, HTC One (M7), Nexus 5, OnePlus One and the Samsung Galaxy S4.

As far as the Apple iPhone is concerned, the ExoDrive team says it has iPhone ExoDrive protoypes and if it can raise its stretch target of $79,000 USD in funding, it will offer iPhone ExoDrives as a reward. If not, cases for the Apple iPhone 5, Apple iPhone 5c, Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus will be available some time after the project is complete.

When you plug your ExoDrive into a PC, the computer will have access to your phone's native memory and the information stored on the microSD card. Plug it into a power outlet and the phone will be charged.
