Having released OTG drives last year for Android, Symbian and Blackberry devices much to the relief of consumers with limited memory mobile devices, SanDisk today launched the iXpand for iPhones and iPads (iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini) running iOS 7 and 8. Like the Dual Drive, this too has a USB Type-A connector at one end and a flexible lightning connector at the other end.
The drive is available in capacities of 16GB 32GB 64GB and 128GB which are priced at Rs 4,490, Rs 5,990, Rs 7,990 and Rs 11,490 respectively. The device also includes a rechargeable battery which helps provide enough driving current to ensure high data transfer rates. This rechargeable battery does not function as a power bank and nor does SanDisk advertise it as such.
