A phone charger cable that automatically backs up the personal data on your phone to the cable itself every time you charge the phone, whether by Power Adaptor, Car Charger, PC port or Power Bank: a simple solution that fits into your daily routine with no third party access to your information.
 

MEEM works exclusively with the free MEEM App and charges your phone at its maximum charging rate. MEEM’s patents in Europe (EP 2220564), the US (US 8560865 & US 9048570) and other countries mean its features and benefits won’t be seen in any other product.

 
      

Losing your phone is a nightmare. 

Most of us don’t think about protecting our photos, videos and contacts...until it’s too late.

With MEEM it’s simple: just use it like any other charger cable and your precious memories will be automatically mirrored onto the MEEM itself. You don’t need a pc, you never need the cloud, and you never pay any fees.

So if your phone is lost, stolen or damaged, or if you’re simply changing your phone, all the things you care about can be transferred easily to your new phone. Simple.

Protect your memories every time you charge

MEEM has an experienced management team with proven track records in consumer electronics and is led by Kelly Sumner, former CEO of Take-Two (Grand Theft Auto) and Red Octane (Guitar Hero).

Simplicity: plug in MEEM, choose and confirm your 4 digit PIN and back up of your personal data starts immediately and automatically thereafter every time you charge your phone.

Control: MEEM App gives full visibility and control: your personal data remains safe in your hands, under your physical control and inaccessible to hackers.

Fits into your daily routine: charge your phone as usual using MEEM and your personal data is mirrored onto the cable itself.

Easy upgrade: whether moving from old technology or purely changing your phone MEEM makes it happen seamlessly.

No on-going costs and fees: backup without added data transfer costs or subscription fees.

Selectively sync data between phones: a virtually impossible task until now.

MEEM is a premium lifestyle product, featuring a slim, sleek aluminium housing that is virtually crush-proof. Conscientiously designed with the environment in mind, it uses high-grade, halogen free materials and components while the packaging is made from natural, recyclable and biodegradable moulded paper pulp.

MEEM is already certified CE and FCC and has been MFi (Made For iPhone) approved.

MEEM comes with a 3-year international warranty.

MEEM will also transfer data from Blackberry (OS7, 10 and above) and Symbian (series 60v3 onwards) handsets to the Android platform. MEEM App for BlackBerry 10 handsets is available at the Blackberry store. MEEM App for Blackberry 7 and Symbian handsets will be available at www.meemmemory.com.

MEEM works exclusively with the free MEEM App available on the App Store and Google Play store and requires Apple iOS 7 / Android OS 4.1.2 respectively. MEEM will also transfer data from Blackberry (OS7, 10 and above) and Symbian (series 60v3 onward) handsets to the Android platform.

The data transfer speed is 3 to 4 MBPS (depending on the phone OS and hardware), which is the standard for USB writable devices, and means it will take up to 6 minutes to transfer 1GB of data. The first data transfer will be the longest because all the information is being mirrored, but will be less than the total charging time. Thereafter, back ups will be significantly faster because MEEM only backs-up incremental changes.

MEEM is offered with either 16GB or 32GB of memory. This may not sound a lot when compared to the capacity of some phones, but remember, MEEM is only backing up your personal data that is not available on public sites, such as iTunes. Our research shows the average Android user has 1.94GB of MEEMable data and the average Apple user 7.68GB of MEEMable data, so capacity should not be an issue.

The charging rate is up to 2.8A@5V as per maximum charging rate of your phone.

Your memories are your business, safeguarding them is ours. We will never ask for your personal details or rights to your data for any reason. Your private information remains offline, always under your physical control. No hacker abuse. No corporate exploitation. No government intrusion.

We’re reaching out to you, the Kickstarter community, because we believe you can play an integral role in the success of MEEM. Through Kickstarter we’re not just pre-selling our product to early adopters, but rather forging relationships with a passionate community of innovative individuals.
Your feedback and support will help us make MEEM an essential part of everyone's life and prevent precious memories being lost forever.


We are rigorously testing MEEM App so that when the product reaches your hands in March 2016 it works flawlessly on all compatible phones and across platforms. The product will launch in the UK and USA with two initial variants: a 16GB MEEM for Android and a 32GB MEEM for iPhone, indicatively priced at £49.99 and £69.99 respectively.

You could save 30% on the RRP if you pledge now.

We are making two Kickstarter special MEEM for our backers: a 32GB MEEM for Android and 16GB MEEM for iPhone.

MEEM is the perfect solution to ensure those precious memories you have on your phone are safe.

If you believe MEEM is a simple and secure solution for backing up your phone, without having to think about it or needing to submit your private information to a public cloud, please support our campaign and spread the word.

Risks and challenges

The main project risks of developing and designing MEEM for manufacture are now behind us. We are confident that we will be able to mass produce the cable and meet the expected market demand. MEEM is supported by a strong team and we have partnered with leading manufacturing, marketing and distribution companies to make MEEM a success.
