The Iomega SuperHero Backup and Charger for iPhone lets you secure your contacts and photos plus recharge your phone while you relax. Just insert your phone in the docking station (with or without the bumper on) and it will automatically backup your contacts and camera roll photos and recharge your phone battery at the same time. It's made for Apple iPhone so you know it will work seamlessly with your phone. If your iPhone is lost or stolen, you can easily restore your contacts and photos from the SD card (4GB capacity) included with the device. Plus, it charges & backs up contacts and photos from the latest generation of the iPod touch® too! The Iomega SuperHero is protected by a 3-year limited warranty when you register your product.
Nice looking heavy duty unit. Can connect to my touch even with the cover on. You only need to down load a free app from itunes to make the unit work. For $15 it can save your info on a SD card, thus backing your phone, touch or pad. Nice and simple!
Works good with iPhone 4S. Easy to use. Helps to backup contacts and photos without much effort.
The must have iPhone accessory7/1/2011
My all in one iPhone accessory. Hereafter I need not connect my iPhone to my computer to take backup of my iPhone. With Iomega SuperHero my backup woes have come to an end. I just dock it and the backup process is initiated. What more it also charges my phone while taking backup. The device can be plugged to the wall socket. This is so convenient, as there is no need to take time off to backup contacts and photos. All I do is drop my phone in the dock and forget about it. What is wonderful is that a progress bar shows the status of the backup. I am happy that it is a two-in-one product, not just my iPhone even my iPod info can be saved as well. Once the SD card is full I upgrade it with a new card. It is a must have accessory if you have an iPhone.
Iomega Superhero !3/8/2011
My first iomega product for which I am gonna review. I have been using iomega hard drives and data station for a long while now. And this specific product was recommended to me by one of my iphone using buddies. Have used it for 2 months now, and must say it is much much better than my previous charger which let alone making a back-up of all the important data but it couldn't even charge my phone properly. It’s a relief that I found iomega superhero, else I would have had to change my phone altogether.
worth the peace of mind2/22/2011
$60 for an iphone dock seems ridiculous. But if you ever broke/lost your iphone, how long would it take you to restore your contacts? And would you pay someone 60 bucks to do it? I've had to manually type in new contacts into phones every time I break or lose one, and it sucked every time. So my answer is yes. Sure, you can back stuff up through iTunes, or google contacts, etc... This charger starts backing up contacts and/or photos automatically every time the phone goes on the charger - something I already do on a daily basis. I don't have to remember to periodically back up my phone. That peace of mind is so worth it. This charger is brilliant.
my iphone is pretty fallible...thus the datas on it are rather prone to be lost...and it’s a pain making a backup every time I update it with stuff...this docking charger has provided me with backups of my contacts every time I charge it....and answering to the previous reviews...yes it works with a bumper case on just fine...
One of the best Iomega products2/2/2011
I am using this iPhone charger from past 2 weeks and I must say, this one rocks! It is a simple device with easy to use menus to set it for backup or charge or do both. All I did was to download a free SuperHero iPhone Backup App from Apple store, get it started, and control the menu to setup backup. While it charges my phone it can carefully take a backup of my contacts and other stuff from my iPhone. I like the way it works.
This device from Iomega is suggested by my brother. I can’t thank him enough for this. This is an awesome companion for my iPhone. It can charge and take a quick backup of my phone contacts, photos at a time. Now, I am not worried about the changes in my contacts and photos in my iPhone. This device takes care of all of it. This is one of the best products from Iomega. Cheers.
