In-Depth How to Video for copying files using only an iPhone

Aaron shows you how to back up your SD (Secure Digital) or microSD (from GoPro, Osmo, Yi, DJI, drone) or CF (Compact Flash) to an external solid state drive (SSD) using only an iPhone, USB hub, and a cheap battery pack. This method doesn’t require a laptop, PC, Mac, computer, Macbook, or anything else. You can copy files in the field from your camera to a portable SSD, this case a SanDisk 2TB Extreme Portable External SSD.
Assuming you can charge up your phone, cameras, and the portable battery pack, you can keep filming and photographing in the field until you fill up your cards, chips, and the 2TB backup. This is awesome for film makers, travelers, photographers, videographers, vloggers, bloggers, creators, and influencers.

This method will also work copying from the USB port of your camera through the hub using the iPhone to the SSD. Just connect your camera, put it into USB mass storage mode, connect it to the hub, and follow the rest of the instructions in the video. The Sandisk SSD is formatted exFAT.
