Hello Hans

The PhotoStick Omni is a fine device for backing up photos from your phone, BUT, I think cloud storage is the best way. That little USB device can get lost or damaged. If you do really want to use a USB drive, there are others that aren’t so expensive. Check out Episode 249 of our What Does This Button Do? show, for all the different ways to copy photos from your phone.

As for the Power Pod, we don’t have personal experience with that. In looking it up, I see that it is MagSafe technology and it appears that Magsafe is only for iPhone 12 and higher. I have spoken with others who have used their magsafe charger for years and love them.

Hope that helps
