Welcome to Winter Holiday Gift Guide #1 (2015) for the San Francisco Menswear Examiner. Between now and December 15th, 2015, expect to see the best of the best of everything that has been reviewed here since Father’s Day.
During the past year, Mophie has popped up on my radar a number of times. This, as has been learned, is a very good thing. Mophie makes a seriously good product and the two below are especially good.
The Spacestation is a small, understated device that combines a 6000mAh battery with a solid state drive. What this means is that if you happen to own one, you have plenty of juice and memory available at all times. Since discovering the Spacestation, I have rid my bag of two flash drives, three (yes, obsessive) back up batteries, and two USB wall chargers. Thanks, Mophie.
Using the Spacestation couldn’t be easier. It comes pre-charged and ready to go. Once the free Mophie Space app is installed, organizing a backup of a phone is as difficult as connecting the it to the Spacestation with your preferred USB cable and pressing the little silver button on the Spacestation.
Accessing files is a breeze. The Space app automatically organizes everything into 6 file categories and the contents of each folder is one touch away. Using the Spacestation as a simple flash drive for rapid transfer of BIG files from one computer to another is also plug-and-play. So, pretty much all the ways the Spacestation can be used are easy-peasy. Thanks, again, Mophie. Starting at $149.95
The Mophie Space Pack for iPhone 6/6 Plus does what the Spacestation does but is made specifically for the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. Instead of an obvious external drive, the Space Pack features a rugged case with a battery and slim external drive built right in. The Space Pack provides peace of mind for your hardware and software by providing protection for both. Starting at $149.95
