unit works great for dumping off cards at a large shoot. used in when shooting multiple bands, was able to dump down cards to the drive and keep shooting. phone interface is good as well, wish i could do more than basic color correction to photos, but love that you can transfer a raw image as .jpg to phone for social posting while on site. nice feature.  once back to edit, you place the unit in mass storage mode and it shows up as a drive. copied the files over and off to edit. exactly what i needed, battery life seems good, rugged case and well designed.

Voltage problem for external drives

By Diego
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2019-01-28

While on location, I connected the Gnarbox to power through its USB port, and proceed to backup files directly from an SD card to an external HDD. Regardless of the drive, this will fail. Theres a voltage design flaw that will make your transfer fail while the unit is connected to power. I confirmed this with Gnarboxs customer support. Its also listed on their troubleshooting guide. Theres no solution at hand. You can only do this while running on Gnarboxs internal battery which is not big enough to transfer files from multiple/large cards. I wanted to love this thing, but its not a good option for backups on the go.

Not worth the money

You could also write a book on a flip phone, basically what all the features of this thing says. Just cause it can, doesnt mean you would/could ever have the time to do it. If you are looking for backup, just buy a usb hub, small adapter and plug your phone into your sd card and an external hard drive. Way easier, save your money on this unnecessary device.

I've been told this is a great accessory to have for drone pilots; but I'm not sure how exactly it works. Has anyone used this device with their drone? I have an DJI A2S still sitting in the box.

The GNARBOX 128GB Portable Backup &amp; Editing System is a great product for offloading in the field. The GNARBOX 128GB Portable Backup &amp; Editing System will accept the footage from the microSD card used on the DJI Air 2S Drone.

I don't understand how this is a backup with only 128GB...is there something I am missing?!? I can buy a 256GB memory card for $50
Asked by: Atort Aerials
The difference is that there is redundancy so you can't use files plus you can edit using your iPhone or iPad anywhere you are even at the location where you shot.

I understand that the purpose of the device is to transfer/back up files from a camera or a memory card. But it's not clear - Is the device capable of automatically transferring/backing up files from a camera while shooting (mirroring function of a camera with dual card slots)?
Asked by: Erik
Backup with the Gnarbox is not automatic, although it is able to automatically organize your footage by time, type, GPS, and other metadata. It is also able to upload files to social media, cloud storage, text, and email with the use of its companion app without needing a computer.

I use XQD 120GB memory cards. Will I have a problem loading an entire card to the 128GB Gnarbox? Or should I purchase the 256GB Gnarbox?
Asked by: natalie
Hi Natalie, thanks for getting in touch! It depends how large your memory cards are and how much data you intend on shooting. The 256GB unit does give you peace of mind if you are worried about filling up the 128GB unit.
