The CloudFTP is a great little niche solution if all you’re needing is to add streaming capabilities to a USB storage device you already own (or want to purchase). Again, given the extremely low cost of hard drives these days (not SSDs, but those are coming down, too) you can easily create an ad-hoc media server solution for your iPad with just the CloudFTP and an inexpensive drive.
If you travel withe a bunch of gadgets, this one’s for you—accessory maker Sanho has dropped the HyperJuice Plug, a charger capable of juicing up two iPads at a time. The company claims it’s the world’s first 15,600 mAh battery pack that can fuel a pair of Apple slates simultaneously. Its dual ports equally distribute 15W to two devices. It comes in six different colors, it’s compact, and it has a retractable wall plug, all of which make it pretty easy to throw in your suitcase or carry-on. This little guy ships in two weeks and will cost you $130, which isn’t a terrible price if it means you can get rid of all those tangled cords and big bricks you’re used to.
One for fun, the other for work? If that’s how you roll with your iPads, then you might be well trained in the art of battery juggling. If, however, you’re not, or you just like to keep things tip-top at all times, then makers of fine accessories, Sanho, have the product for you. The company claims the HyperJuice Plug is the world’s first 15,600 mAh portable battery pack that can recharge a brace of iPads at the same time — complete with retractable wall plug for convenience. It’s not just Apple’s slates, of course, with pretty much all USB gadgets being able to mainline the 15 watts (sharable over two ports) of juice. The HyperJuice Plug launched this week at the Singapore PC show, and lands in six “juicy” colors, yours from an equally juiced up $129.
Update: As some of you have pointed out $129 is the price for the 10,400mAh version, with the 15,600mAh device costing $159
