If you’re a photographer, videographer or content creator who likes to travel light, leaving the laptop behind, we found a must-have storage device for you. HyperAccessory’s skyBox features all-in-one portable SSD storage with built-in wireless connectivity and universal compatibility. It will have you streaming and sharing media on the go with gusto.

Small size, big capacity storage

skyBox ensures easy streaming and backup of photos, videos and music files to and from any of your mobile devices, cameras or drones. It offers from 512GB to 4TB of storage space, yet it’s essentially the size of a credit card and about as thick as a smartphone. So “portable” is no exaggeration. You can back up your laptop(s) with it and leave the heavier hardware at home. And if you go for the bigger capacity (up to 4TB), you never have to worry about running out of space.

Easy to use and fast on the go

Given its small size, skyBox will easily fit in a pocket, knapsack, purse or computer bag. That makes it easy to back up devices anywhere. Backing up the internal storage of a device or an SD card only takes one touch and about one minute, give or take, thanks to the Wi-Fi 6 technology and transfer speeds up to 900MB per second. Wi-Fi 6 can transfer 40% faster than current Wi-Fi 5. For wired transfer, skyBOX can support up to 2200MB per second via USB-C.

Backups are super-easy, too, requiring no laptops or software. Just insert the SD card or USB drive and press one button to copy. Then, skyBox will begin backing up your files instantly. With UHS-II, skyBox can back up files with up to 300MB per second, which means it takes only a few minutes to back up a 64GB SD card.

Streaming and sharing on many compatible devices

In addition to being a great backup, skyBox allows seamless wireless streaming to multiple devices. With additional access through its own app and other third-party apps, users can browse, stream, edit and share files with mobile phones, iPads or laptops wherever and whenever necessary.

The optional SkyCloud Dock can convert skyBox into a personal cloud just by connecting it with an Ethernet cable. That means users can leave the device at home and still access the files on the go.

Choose the best version for you

skyBox comes in two versions, one for more-professional uses and one for those who prefer a more-affordable option.

skyBox Pro offers the most storage capacity, with 4TB SSD memory and ultra-fast 2200MB per second transfer speed. It’s recommended for frequent travelers and photographers, videographers, journalists and other content creators.

A more economical version comes with 512GB, 1TB or 2TB storage options and 900MB per second standard transfer speed. It’s suitable for business travelers and everyday office and personal needs.

Buy from: skyBox is available for preorder on Indiegogo, starting from $99 (50% off MSRP) for the 512GB pack. Or you can get up to a 4TB pack that includes a skyBOX Pro and a SkyCloud Dock for $479.
