    I must have 400 USB chargers, flash drives, and spare batteries for all of my new gadgets.  It overtakes my sense of sanity sometimes…that is until I found the USB Cell Drive.

    The Cell Drive is a new 4 in 1 USB accessory, which offers syncing, power, charging and storage, and it’s the latest in gadget news.  It also allows the synchronization of an iPhone or other mobile devices, and can power not just cell phones, but GPS, eBooks, Portables and Tablets.

Parents, students, businessmen and women will never again miss that important call thanks to this amazing piece of technology.

    The Power of 4

    Besides an alternate power source, the Cell Drive works with phones, GPS, E-readers, Bluetooth, MP3 and other USB portable devices, providing storage and transfer capability for data and media sharing and protection. It essentially functions as a backup battery, charging cable, data cable, and a flash drive for virtually any mobile device–all in one compact little thumbdrive.

    Don’t lose your info again

    The Cell Drive sports a rechargeable 430 mAh/3.7v lithium-polymer battery that allows you to have power whenever you want and where ever you are.  A fully charged [amazon_link id=”B0042ETV2S” target=”_blank” ]Cell Drive[/amazon_link] will provide over an hour of continuous talk time and several days of stand by time.  The Cell Drive and mobile device are charged simultaneously from any USB source to extend the use of the Cell Drive and mobile device. Additionally, it acts as a full-on back-up system, so if you have information that has to be preserved, the Cell Drive allows you to backup your device immediately.

    Transfer and Sync

    Not only does the Cell Drive offer the ability to sync and transfer data such as e-mails, calendars, address books, and downloads between your computer and mobile device, it also provides 4 GB or 8 GB of mass storage for any type of file to be backed-up or shared.

    The media transfer function allows for the transfer and safe storage of pictures, videos, and other media between the computer and mobile device. The Cell Drive’s syncing capability is made possible by its patented data-link technology and the device provider’s installed software.

    Featuring a high-speed 2.0 USB interface with 13MB/sec (read) and 9MB/sec (write) capability, once the phone data is stored on the computer, it can easily be transferred to the Cell Drive. The Cell Drive works with Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista, Mac 9.x and higher, and Linux 2.4x and higher.


    Backed by a one-year warranty, the Cell Drive comes with a charge and sync Mini-USB connector; two charging adapters (3.5-millimeter iPhone/iPod and 3.5-millimeter Micro-USB), and drawstring carrying bag.  It comes in a 4GB and 8 GB version and sells for $49.95 and $59.95 respectively.
    Bottom Line

    The [amazon_link id=”B0042ETV4G” target=”_blank” ]Cell Drive’s[/amazon_link] real selling feature here is its portability.  I’ve reviewed something like this, but you literally needed a duffle bag to carry all of the accessories.  The Cell Drive is extremely small and combines many connecting options and many mobile features that are a road warrior’s dream.  Power, storage, sync and charge…..what else do you need?   And the price is more than fair.

    I was also impressed with it’s 2.0 transfer speed….lightening fast.  Finally, because it works with literally every device I threw at it,  I really only need the Cell Drive for all of my mobile needs.  Love this product.  Probably one of the best new gadgets I’ve reviewed this year.  You can purchase it at [amazon_link id=”B0042ETV4G” target=”_blank” ]Amazon[/amazon_link].
