My phone is always crowded with videos and pictures and audio. With this I can download and store them on here and have it transferred to my PC and then to my external storage I use for all of that. It is lightweight and compact, and has both the USB and the Type C interfaces. There is a metal cover that is attached that covers the USB and a cap that covers the C port. It is perfect to get the photos off my phone and super easy to use. Exactly what i needed!
