Mosaic battery, storage and WiFi pack hits Kickstarter
Battery packs and extra storage space are almost essentially for the heavy mobile user and the gradual decline in microSD card slots and removable batteries in some phones is increasing the need for third party accessories. But who really wants to carry so many extras?
Mosaic, which has just landed on Kickstarter, should help solve this problem. The device is essentially a two-in-one combo package which can charge your phone and also boosts your mobile storage as a wireless hard drive. Mosaic is designed by PowerStick, which previously launch a range of battery packs and sticks through KickStarter.
As a battery pack, Mosaic may not be the biggest, but it should almost certainly help you last through a full day. The pack contains a 4,500mAh battery, which apparently lasts long enough to stream 8 hours of video from the device.
For storage, Mosaic comes with familiar capacities. There are 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB flash memory options up on Kickstarter. Mosaic comes with a built in WiFi transmitter, allowing users to stream media on up seven difference devices at once.
Furthermore, Mosaic can be daisy chained up to another external hard drive or USB stick and supports up to 2TB of storage. So you can turn any hard drive into a wireless device.
The Mosaic app can be used to manage the files stored on the device. There’s also a USB 3.0 Type-C cable included in the box for faster dragging and dropping of files from your laptop or PC.
Prices begin at $100 for the 32B model, ranging up to $250 for the 256GB platinum edition. There are also multipack bundles available at a discounted price and a selection of pledge rewards. Delivery is planned for October 2015. Check out the official Kickstarter page for the full details.
