Over the past few months, Corsair's Brazilian overclocker Ronaldo "RBuass" has been smashing overclocking world records! He started off in late January and took the 3DMark Vantage world record then recently followed it up with a few single GPU world records in Unigine Heaven and 3DMark Vantage.
During the course of developing the Corsair Voyager Air, battery life was an area of great focus for us. We decided to put a very large capacity battery into the Voyager Air so that mobile users could get the most out of their devices under a variety of usage scenarios. The battery we chose is rated at 6200mAh or milliamp hours.
Here's one of my early prototypes. You can clearly see the battery sitting on top of the HDD.
Senior associate technology editor at CNET, Dong Ngo, has likely reviewed most any wireless storage device worth mentioning. He recently published a roundup based on his results from several of these product reviews. Here is a quote of his conclusion regarding the Corsair Voyager Air.
"The device is also very compact, and it supports USB 3.0. It can work as a mobile media server, a home NAS server, or a bus-powered portable drive, and it excelled in all of these roles in my testing. It's not perfect but as far as mobile storage goes, it's the most complete package on the market."

The Corsair Voyager Air wireless portable storage drive is a device of convenience. It allows users to wirelessly access the stored data without the need for any wired connection to the device. However, this convenience can allow access to your data from unwanted users if your drive is not password protected. For this reason, Corsair strongly recommends that users enable the wireless password when using their Voyager Air in any location where unwanted users could attempt to wirelessly connect to the Voyager Air.
So how does a better PSU equate to a better computing experience? Consider this: If your power supply isn't doing a good job of regulating voltage and filtering ripple, what is?
The computer power supply essentially converts AC to DC. Older or more basic computer power supplies convert AC to multiple DC voltages (+12V, +5V, +3.3V) at the same time. Newer, more advanced power supplies, convert AC to +12VDC, while smaller DC to DC power supplies within the power supply's housing convert the +12V to lesser used +3.3V and +5V. The latter is more efficient because lesser used voltages are not converted unless they're required and converting DC to DC itself is more efficient than converting AC to DC as it requires fewer and smaller components.
After that voltage is converted, it's filtered with inductors and capacitors.
The Voyager Air app is intuitive and functional and it provides a very nice user experience. The logical layout is geared towards giving you quick access to the content on your Voyager Air so that you can manage and use it efficiently and easily. Let’s take a little tour.
Here is the main screen that you will see when you launch your Voyager Air app. This is the root directory of your drive. From this page, you can navigate the content on your Voyager Air drive.
Select a folder to open it. The name of the folder will be displayed at the top of the screen, and the “Back” button will display the name of the previous folder (or, on some devices , the word “Back”). Touching the “Back” button navigates back to the previous folder.
We at Corsair believe the old mantra that a picture is worth a thousand words. We've got some great pictures that are worth quite a few thousand words here. The new Voyager Air drives are designed to be simple to use with smartphones, tablets, PCs, and MAC computers. Whatever type of device you are using, we'll show you how to connect.
I remember that back in my grade school days, a field trip was a real treat. Even if the place we visited was not all that interesting, at least it was a day out of school. The best trips of course were those that were in fact fun and interesting.
