About this project
What do we use our iPhones for? Well, what do we NOT use our iPhones for?
A 16GB iPhone gives you around 12GB of user-accessible space. That means that even if you didn’t install a single app, store a single song or take a single photo, your shiny new iPhone can shoot just 32 minutes of 4K video.
With i.dime, you can add up to 256GB of additional space to the iPhone. More real estate allows you to capture more moments, unleash your creativity and keep memories that you shared with your loved ones.
Made to Share
Sharing contents to other devices is just a snap away. Whether it is a birthday video of your kid or 200 photos you took with your friends at a party last night, simply snap off the i.dime and place it on the USB holder provided. Then use it as a thumbdrive and plug it in to your computer. Lightning and micro USB holders are available as well for your tablets and non-Apple smartphones.
When the time comes to transfer your data, i.dime supports blazing fast 95MB/s read and 90MB/s write speeds. This ensures all content, whether it be 4K videos or high-resolution images, can be enjoyed with minimal lag or delay. For example, 16GB of photos and videos will take less than 3 minutes to transfer.
Does it work without the case? Absolutely
With provided dongles that come with every purchase of an idime, you can simply snap idime on to the dongles to plug it into the bottom port of your phone to enjoy idime.
Many of you have expressed concerns whether our product will work with upcoming iPhone 7. The answer is YES, and if iPhone 7 were to launch before we begin shipping, you'll be given a choice to receive iPhone 7 case instead.
Made of polycarbonate urethane, the slip-preventive i.dime case provides pleasant grip while protecting your phone from impacts.
Currently, we are offering 5 different color options to choose from:
Bottom Port Options
i.dime case comes in two options (lightning port or Micro USB port) for you to choose.
i.dime case is compatible with iPhone 5, SE, 6, 6+, 6S, 6s+
The i.dime application features intuitive user interface that makes managing your files on your i.dime and iOS effortless.
- Capture images and record videos directly onto the i.dime, rather than taking up more space on your phone.
- Backup your native iOS contacts, photos and videos to the i.dime with a press of a single button.
- Manage files on the i.dime with full visibility of all the files stored.
View photos and video, play music and read documents of various types. i.dime app supports file formats that are not be supported by iOS including the following:
- Audio: WAV, AAC, AIF, AIFF, CAF, M4A, MP3
- Image: JPG, TIFF, GIF
- Video: MP4, M4V, MPV, MOV, MKV, WMV, FLV, 3GP, GIF, AVI (subtitles as well: SRT, SUB, SBV)
Whether it is for older generation iPhones or iPads, drop the i.dime on to the lightning holder and plug it into the lightning port to share your contents between iDevices.
Micro USB Holder
Sharing files with Android as an Apple user has always been a nightmare. We made this holder to make cross-platform sharing completely effortless.
As a Charging Dock
Using the ports on the battery, you can sync and charge the phone at the same time. The battery supports 2X charge, meaning your phone will be fully juiced in half the amount of time you would need if you were just plugging it into a computer.
As a Portable Battery
You can charge it using the i.dime port with the case on, or use the cable to charge it. Better yet, you can charge two phones simultaneously at the same time.
- Capacity: 4,500mAH (Charges your iPhone 6S 1.7 times over @ 2x charging speed which is same speed as the wall charger)
The keychain holder (70 x 32 x 6.2 mm) allows you to securely carry up to two i.dimes and two types of dongles. The slide-out function let's you quickly access your i.dimes without any hassle.
To get a Keychain Holder, simply add $9 to the reward level of your choice.
