We’ve all come to terms with the fact that Apple will never in a million years add support for expandable memory to its iPhone lineup. The dream is dead and it’s time to move on. Of course, there are a few options out there that don’t involve paying Apple an extra $150 for a usable amount of storage, and our favorite right now is the SanDisk iXpand Base. Available in 128GB and 256GB sizes, this is the most hands-off solution there is for local backup of your iPhone photos and videos. All you do is plug your phone in each night to charge while you sleep, just like you normally do, and the iXpand Base takes care of the rest auto-magically.

Here are some key details from the product page:

* Automatically back up your iPhone’s photos, videos and contacts every time you charge
* Keep your photos and videos right on the iXpand Base at original quality with no worry about recurring monthly fees
* Fast-charge with 15 watts of power
* Designed for everyday use with a soft rubber top to hold your phone and a wrap-around groove to keep your cable tidy
* Easily restore your backed up photos, videos and contacts to your iPhone
* Works with your Apple Lightning to USB cable. Cable not included.
* Works with iPhone 5 or greater with Lightning connector and iOS 10+
