SanDisk might have just unveiled the greatest gadget ever invented.

It's a bold claim we know, and it's going to sound even bolder when we tell you it's a USB Flash Drive. That's right, the greatest gadget ever invented is a USB Flash Drive.

Hear us out though. It offers up to 128GB of memory (most small laptops have that) and is no bigger than a normal USB stick.

While that's impressive it's not why you're going to buy it. The reason you'll buy it is because it can effectively double the memory of your iPhone.

Using a direct WiFi connection between the stick and the iPhone you can save photos, videos and music straight to the stick and then stream them back to the phone whenever you want to view them.

It's self-powered so you'll need to charge it but fully-charged the stick will let you stream films for up to 4.5 hours before needing to be plugged back in.

You access the media via an app which you can download for iOS and Android.
