The Power Company Launches Flex-Card; First Device That Brings Universal Storage to Every Phone and Computer

FRANKLIN, TN, April 8, 2015 - The Power Company, a leading edge product design company focused on smart electronics, has launched the industry's first physical storage device that brings together all mobile phones and computer devices.

The Flex-Card - which can connect iPhones, Androids, iPads, PCs, tablets, Macs and more - was released today on Indiegogo. The Flex-Card, the fourth product created by The Power Company, seeks to bridge the gap of sharing files between different operating systems without connecting to a cloud-based system.

"With all the problems people have experienced with the cloud and browser-based storage, the Flex-Card should make technology users feel more secure by not utilizing an Internet connection," said Gene Aikens, founder of The Power Company and designer of the Flex-Card.

The Flex-Card contains two flexible cables, as well as connectors that can attach, depending on the device the user is using. The two main cables include a 3.0 USB connector and a micro connector, while the attachments include a Lightning 8-pin connector (iPhone 5 and newer), 30-pin (iPhone/iPad older generations), and the newly released USB-C.

"With the cables being flexible, users can connect to any device protected by a case, without having to remove their phone," Aikens said, describing the added features of the Flex-Card.

The Power Company is seeking to initially raise $3,000 through its Flex-Card Indiegogo campaign to start production of the manufacturing molds. Once the company hits its funding goal, another Indiegogo campaign will immediately be launched to raise $50,000 for the first Flex-Card manufacturing run. Other plans for the Flex-Card include a variety of colors, clip-on attachments, and new app development. The current Indiegogo Flex-Card specials range from $65 to $345 for the 256GB model.

Additional Flex-Card features include:

  • Copy/move files between Android, Apple/iOS Mobile Devices, Tablets, PC, and/or MAC into the Flex-Card.
  • No Internet needed: Open files directly from the Flex-Card without using a cloud system or Internet connection.
  • Stream all your music and movies directly from the Flex-Card to your mobile device.
  • Speed: The Flex-Card runs at the fastest 3.0 speed, allowing users to transfer files fast and efficiently.
  • Charge any Apple, Android, or Windows Mobile device 100% directly from your computer without a charging cable.
  • Case Friendly: With its flexible adapters, the Flex-Card can fit any case that's connected to your device.
  • Encryption: Add a password for added security when storing personal data.
  • File Management: Copy/cut/paste/delete/rename & create folders.
  • Backup: Backup all of your photos, videos, and music from a MAC or PC.

The Flex-Card follows on the heels of The Power Company's successful launch of the Smart Card, and the iPocket Drive, which were both recently featured in iPhone Life.
