Using an iXflash to film video through your iPhone/iPad means you can directly upload the video to a video editing software without the extra steps.

Video content is everywhere and we’re all creating it through our phones and tablets. Whether you’re creating video content for social media, online retail listings, entertainment, home videos, etc., if you’re creating the content to post, then frequently that content has to be transferred to a 3rd party video editing software to create the final cut. To do so, more often than not, means the user has to then find a way to download the raw video footage onto the device with the video editing software and that could be a full production in itself! Why go through the hassle when the iXflash makes it so easy?

For example, I often make videos of our products that we sell through various online retail sites, such as Amazon. In the past, I would use my iPhone to film the content, then I would need to either upload that video to the cloud and then download the file from the cloud to the computer I was using to edit with, or I would need to connect my iPhone to the computer, download the file through iTunes or another software and then upload that file again to the editing software. It’s time consuming and a hassle.

With the iXflash, I simply connect the iXflash to my iPhone, open the iXflash App and select the “CAMERA” function, and film whatever project I was working on as I ordinarily would with my iPhone camera function. When I’m done, all the content I filmed is stored directly on the iXflash drive, which I can then connect to any PC or Mac with the iXflash’s USB connection and open the video file(s) directly from whatever video editing software I want to use. There’s no waiting or concern about file compatibility. It streamlines the process and I go from shooting the video to editing right away.

If you use an iPhone or iPad to film content as a function of your job, the iXflash is the ideal time and money saver that you don’t want to be without!

iXflash happy mother's day

Mother’s Day is a special day as it allows all of us to appreciate all of the mothers that are in our lives. Whether that’s your own mother, grandmother, a spouse, or another family member or friend that is special to you. Being a mother is often a thankless job, so it’s important that we can reward them whenever we can, especially on such a special day, like Mother’s Day.

Of course, you can give them a traditional gift like chocolate or flowers. However, chocolates melt, flowers wilt, but what means the most are the memories everyone shared together. Make sure those memories don’t fade or get lost, protect them so they can live on forever by backing up the photos and videos onto an iXflash or an iXflash Cube.

As the children grow, the mom in your life will be happy being able to look back at all those wonderful moments captured over time.

Vinpower strives to do its part to minimize our impact on the environment and the iXCharger is a giant step in that direction.

iXCharger is ESG

This past Monday, April 22 was Earth Day, but for Vinpower, we are focused every day on how we can lower our carbon footprint and develop products that follow the ESG directives many forward thinking companies have put in place. That is one of the key reasons Vinpower developed the multi-purpose compact iXCharger. As we are all aware, every electronic mobile phone, tablet, or computer requires two critical components; a method to power the device and a way to store digital content to be used on that device. Often the memory installed on the device is not sufficient, so we have to purchase additional memory in the form of an external hard drive/SSD, USB drive, SD Card, etc., and we will carry multiple power cube chargers so that we have a specialize one for each device.

That’s a lot of extra products and plastic that could end up in our landfills, oceans, neighborhoods, creating an environmental, social, and governance nightmare. With the iXCharger, you have a single charger and extra memory storage that can replace all the charging cubes and external memory devices for all your portable mobile devices. The iXCharger works across all platforms, from Apple iOS and MacBooks to Android, as well as Windows and other mobile PC based operating systems. Plus, the iXCharger’s enhanced GaN charging technology and extremely compact design means it produces less heat and uses far less plastic than traditional higher capacity charging cubes and external memory devices.

Vinpower has always cared about the planet and the legacy we leave to those that come after us and the iXCharger is a testament to that vision.

From tinfoil to optical discs, the history of recorded sound is music to my ears

History of recorded sound

Every once in a while, we like to take the opportunity to redirect these weekly email blasts from promotional to educational. As we explore and pick up interesting tidbits, we like to share them with you all. In this case, a co-worker went to a museum offering an exhibit on sound and snapped an interesting picture on the history of recorded sound. Having grown up in a time where there was always amplified sound coming from virtually everything we interacted with, radio, TV, movies, records, tapes, even video games, I never knew a life without it. But the advent of a medium to record and rebroadcast sounds was only invented in the late 1800’s. Imagine never being able to hear music unless you went to a live performance or the only way you could receive information was through writings or telegraph. I don’t know about you, but sound permeates our house constantly, from listening to podcasts or music while getting ready in the morning to my kids glued to their screens watching the latest videos on YouTube or TikTok.

This brings me to the point that audio recordings are a staple in the lives or those that can hear them, and even to those that can’t through the soundwaves vibrations. Because these audio recordings can stir up a magnitude of emotions, understandings, and teachings, it’s important to know that whichever medium you store these recordings on, they will be available for you whenever you want them. That’s why Vinpower offers a bevvy or devices that allow you to capture and save those recordings for many many years into the future. Whether it’s a classic CD, flash and SSD memory, or through some type of digital audio player, like an iPhone or laptop, Vinpower has a high quality hi-fidelity method to help you record, store, and enjoy that content for years to come.

Due to the incredible response for the 65W iXCharger, Vinpower greenlit the next evolution in the 100W iXCharger

intro 100W iXCharger

There’s been so much positive buzz around the 65W iXCharger, we are already looking at its next evolution. How can we improve on a device that will revolutionize the portable charging and storage industry? Make it more powerful, with more memory, and allow it to charge two devices at the same time! The next version of the iXCharger will be a 100W model that offers two USB-C connections and up to 2TB of data storage memory. The iXCharger 100W will be able to either allocate up to 100W of power to a single device or charge 2 separate devices at the same time. Yet, it will still provide access to its internal storage memory, up to an incredible 2TB, across virtually any portable computing platform, including laptop computers (PC, Mac, and Chromebook), as well as smartphones and tablets (Apple iOS iPhone/iPad and Android) for the ultimate combination of power and storage.

We anticipate the 100W 2 USB-C port iXCharger will be available in Q3 or Q4 2024 and is actively being created at this time. Start out with the iXCharger 65W and then move up to the 100W 2 USB-C model if needed or you just want more power, memory, and charging capabilities.

Vinpower’s iXflash dual USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type C and A flash drive, is the first in the world to receive Apple’s MFi certification for an iOS device without a Lightning connection.

Worlds 1st iXflash A and C

The iXflash USB 3.2 Gen 1 dual Type C & A drive, with capacities from 32GB up to 2TB, recently, became the first in the world to receive an Apple MFi certification when not incorporating a Lightning connection. Until this point, only flash storage devices that contained a Lightning connection could receive the coveted MFi certification from Apple. Yet, with Apple switching to the Universal USB Type C connection, Vinpower felt it was important to develop a dual head USB Type C and Type A flash drive that can work with USB-C connected Apple devices as well as virtually all other mobile phones, tablets, and computers.

With Vinpower securing a MFi certification from Apple for its Piodata iXflash USB C and A drive, that allows it to have full access to creating an Apple App that can be utilized across all iPhones and iPads that have a USB C connection. Utilizing the App allows the iXflash to backup critical content, like photos and videos, contacts, and more. The iXflash App can open and modify files stored on the iXflash drive, through an iPhone or iPad, as well as take photos and videos with an iPhone or iPad that feed directly to the iXflash memory storage, without being limited to only the Apple Pro Res format.

Even though the latest Apple iPhone 15 series comes with a USB Type C connection, it’s extremely limited in the actions a standard USB Type C drive can access without the MFi certification. In fact, users can only access the Files App and allow direct recording to a USB C connected flash or SSD drive through the Pro Res video recording operation. Other than that, a non-MFi certified USB C drive cannot access the Photos App, or any other application that would be extremely useful and necessary for backups and sharing content.

With the iXflash USB C and A drive, it allows Vinpower to become the first truly universal flash drive that can fully integrate with the latest iPhone and iPad as well as work with virtually every computing platform on the market today and in the future. With the explosion of content being stored on all of our computing platforms, it’s critical to have a device that can fully interact with all of them to access that content anywhere, anytime, from any device.

Disney stopped making DVD’s, but not stopping DVD distribution of their titles

Disney DVD moving to Sony

It’s being reported that Disney is in the process of transitioning its physical home entertainment business to a licensing model. The studio will start with a licensing agreement with Sony, which will see Sony handle marketing, selling, and distributing physical media (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, etc.) of any new Disney releases and older catalog titles to consumers via retailers and distributors in the U.S. and Canada1. That sounds scary for those of us still dedicated to physical media, like another death nail in the coffin of optical discs. But in reality, it’s simply a financial decision to outsource the licensing rights for production of the Disney titles to a 3rd party. Ultimately, everyone will still be able to buy the Disney movie titles they want, it will just be made and distributed by another company. Ultimately, we’ll all still be able to purchase the Blu-ray version of Toy Story, or Monsters, Inc., and as a consumer, we won’t notice any difference.

But, there’s still a caveat that as production of content becomes consolidated, the determination as to what content is produced will now be a numbers game and not because the content creator wants to continue the brand. Especially when one company is paying a licensing fee for the rights to produce that content. That means if you have a favorite movie or movies that are not mainstream enough, and you don’t already own a DVD or Blu-ray copy, there may come a time where that title will be very difficult or expensive to obtain and view, if at all. So, it’s important to always get a copy of those favorite movies to keep on hand, so you’ll always have it available when you want it.

Don’t leave it to the discretion of big corporations, get your own copies of the movies you want. Otherwise, it may no longer be an option.
