Flash drives on-the-go!

30 May 2014 in USB Flash Drives | USB Memory Sticks

If, like most people in the modern Western world, you are the owner of a smartphone, then we're about to make your life so much easier. One of the greatest things about smartphones is also one of it's biggest drawbacks; You can take hundreds of photos and videos and save all kinds of data, but often there is not enough storage on the device itself. Some phones and networks offer 'cloud' storage devices, but often you have to pay a monthly premium for it or be stuck with a very small amount of extra space that just isn't worth the effort. 

The image below shows just how much storage capacity your smartphone has. It may look like a lot, but remember that this space is also be taken up with all the apps you install, not just the images and videos you take or music you download. 


 

The fact of the matter is, a lot of us are very reliant on our smartphones, and without a solid means of backing up the important data we keep on them we could find ourselves somewhat stranded in the digital age if our phones should ever give up the ghost.

So, what can you do? Well, thankfully, we at Memory Mates have just the thing to solve this problem. They're called OTG (short for On The Go) Flash Drives and they work exactly the same way as a regular USB stick, except that they have the addition of a micro USB connector on the other side that enables you to plug it in to your smartphone. It can also be used with some tablets, which is a real bonus if you want to write that important document on the go and easily transfer it to your computer when you arrive. Given that almost every smartphone has a mini USB port (they are soon to be compulsory, in fact) and never enough storage, we believe that this is a sorely needed addition to the gadgeting world!


The best news of all is that they are available to buy from our web site right now.

stay charged - power banks!

28 February 2014 in Power Banks

I remember one of my very first mobile phones; a Nokia 3310. Faithful, near unbreakable, hundreds of interchangeable fascia cases, and a battery life that by today’s standards is just unthinkable. You could go days without even considering charging it because all you could do was call, text, and play snake. But the ever increasing craziness of technology that started engulfing the Western world quickly spread to our mobile phones and soon enough, everlasting battery life became a thing of the past.

A lot of us use our phones almost constantly throughout our day - whether it’s browsing social media, checking the weather, or powering satellites – and because of this we’ve had to sacrifice the battery life that makes us nostalgic for the ‘brick’ phones of yore. Most of us are resigned to this unfortunate fact of life and make sure to carry a charger around just in case we have a desperate urge to play Flappy Bird on our lunch hour and only have 1% battery. But it’s not very convenient to carry a charger around with you and it’s often quite difficult to find a socket to plug into.

But fear not my fellow technofiles, because we at Memory Mates have a solution: The Power Bank. This brilliant little device will ensure you don’t miss one of the fourteen times you need to visit Facebook during the day, as it can provide up to two full smartphone battery charges! All you have to do is charge up the Bank via a plug point at home and you’re ready to use your super powered 21st century phone without dreading the speedy drain of the battery. It even has the extra bonus feature of a torch, which makes this little gadget ideal for camping and other adventures, especially as they're conveniently pocket sized.

So long as you plan ahead with one of our Power Banks, you’ll never have battery life anxiety again.

Personalised Flash Drives

28 February 2014 in Personalised | USB Flash Drives | USB Memory Sticks

Personalised gifts add that extra special level of care to a gift that might otherwise appear quite ordinary (not that any of our novelty flash drives are anything close to ordinary!). The internet is full of companies waiting to print your name, logo, or artwork onto mugs, mousemats, tote bags – you name it, they’ve got it. But have you noticed that if you want to order personalised items in smaller quantities, maybe as low as just one, you have to compromise on the quality or the price?

Our personalised flash drives are particularly popular among wedding photographers who like to present their finished images to couples in a way that’s professional as well as personal – they’d also make great wedding favours. But they’re also popular with big brands that need to make a statement at a company event or to promote new products. We can cater to their larger orders just as easily as we can cater to your order for a personalised drive for your mum for Mother’s Day (that’s coming up you know). We can even preload files onto them for you.

So if you need a personalised flash drive for yourself or a gift, or a box load for wedding guests, or several box loads for a promotional event then you need to talk to us about what we can offer you. Our prices start low, but each unit gets cheaper the more you order! What more could you ask for? Well, we also have no minimum order quantity and no matter how many you buy, you will get the same brilliant product and service from us, guaranteed. If an item can be personalised, you will see the option when ordering!
