This tiny wireless SSD makes sure your iPhone never runs out of storage

By Chris Smith, BGR

Smartphones are getting more and more built-in storage these days, but that doesn’t change the fact that many users are still stuck with older versions that have inadequate storage. That’s especially true for iPhones, since storage can’t be expanded via microSD cards like it can on most Android handsets and tablets out there. But if you’re looking for more storage on-the-go, there’s a new pocket-sized device to check out, the Fasetto Link.

The Fasetto Link can offer up to 2TB of SSD storage and it connects to devices wirelessly, which makes it easy to use with a mobile phone such as an iPhone or Android device. According to The Verge, the Fasetto Link is shock resistant and waterproof (IP68 rating), and it has a built-in battery that can be recharged via USB-C.

The device comes in different versions, storage-wise, including 256GB, 512GB, and 2TB, priced at $349, $499, and $1,149, respectively. The compact V-NAND SSD inside is supposed to be incredibly fast, boasting read speeds of up to 2.5GB/s, and write speeds of up to 1.5GB/s.

The Fasetto Link has a modular design that lets you attach an extra battery (priced at $29), or an LTE expansion module ($149). That’s right, you can use the gadget as a mobile hotspot if you pay extra for the LTE module. Connectivity wise, you can expect dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 LE support from all models.

The built-in battery lasts for five hours of continuous use or two weeks of standby. When it comes to overall size, the gadget measures 50.8 x 50.8 x 25.4 mm, or 2 x 2 x 1 inches. The Fasetto Link comes in two color options, and it is available for preorder right away at this link.
