For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with well-known storage and memory company Lexar to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a 64GB C20i JumpDrive, which is designed to increase the storage capacity of an iPhone or iPad and enable file transfers between Macs/PCs and iOS devices.

The C20i JumpDrive is a tiny, pocket-sized dongle that's just a couple inches in length when folded shut, so it's perfect for travel and easy to carry all the time. There's a Lightning connector at one end to plug into an iPhone or iPad, and a USB 3.0 connector at the other end to plug into a PC or Mac, making it simple to move files between various devices. The two pieces are made from aluminum to match Apple's iOS devices, and there's a high-quality cable in between that feels like it'll hold up well to regular usage.

With storage capacities ranging from 16GB ($41.99) to 128GB ($136.99), the C20i JumpDrive can more than double the amount storage available on an iOS device. It's ideal for anyone who likes to have a lot of content like photos, videos, or music on hand, and invaluable for iPhone users with only 16 or 32GB of storage.

It features USB 3.0 transfer speeds (95MB/s read and 20MB/s write) when transferring content from a Mac to the drive, and it doubles as standard Lightning cable for charging when plugged into both an iPhone and a Mac.

Media content like videos, photos, music can be played or viewed directly from the JumpDrive using the Lexar Mobile Manager app whenever the dongle is plugged into an iOS device. It supports a wide range of files, including MP3, AAC, WAVE, AIFF, M4A, AVI, MV4, MOV, MKV, and MP4. Videos and music in multiple formats played seamlessly from the JumpDrive in our tests.

Lexar's app is more full-featured than apps from competitors, and in addition to offering automatic photo and contact backup, it also includes options to link to Dropbox, YouTube, and Vimeo so all of your content is viewable in one location, plus there's a built-in voice recording feature. The app is organized in a logical way so it's easy to find content, and it's clear how much storage is available on both JumpDrive and the iOS device it's connected to.

Lexar normally charges $95 for the JumpDrive C20i on its website, but five MacRumors readers will win one for free. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winner and send the prize.

You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page. Due to the complexities of international laws regarding giveaways, only U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older are eligible to enter.

The contest will run from today (May 20) at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time through 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time on May 27. The winners will be chosen randomly on May 27 and will be contacted by email. The winners have 48 hours to respond and provide a shipping address before new winners are chosen.

Suppose Apple, Macrumors and everything was US only. None would exist, because the cheap Chinese labour with the special 'vocations' as Tim Cook calls it would not be available to build the iPhone, iPad, iMac, Apple Watch and all these electronics.

You need to change these contests from 'No US at all and that applies to Canada too'.

If you have music in this device will Siri play it assuming it's connected to the phone? I want to use it with CarPlay to expand my storage and have my entire library available in the car.

I hate websites that think all their users are from the US and only does contests for US when clearly there is ill feeling produced when running said contests. Please don't become a US centric pile of doodoo.

Do you even understand that there are legal reasons a giveaway might have to be limited to the country of the company doing it?

You USA bashers are pathetic, just go back to living under your rock and stop thinking everything is about you.

Do people use these kind of accessories? I mean really, on iOS, it's very inconvenient as one must use a separate app for the contents. Plus, this is all assuming you will be taking a dongle everywhere you go just for a phone. Kinda silly. It would make better sense if it's built-in to a case, but still there's the separate app requirement.

As opposed to perhaps actually reading the thread and seeing that that a whole discussion about that already exists and has been clearly linked to?

I'd also be complaining if I lived in Jamaica.

As long as such gadgets need an individual app to function, I don't think this is a good deal for users even with only 16GB storage.

Waiting for Apple to add USB drive support on both iPad and iPhone.

Interesting product. Overpriced. I think my Kingston MobileLite is better. Not that I ever use it

It makes iOS look bad that this even exists

I think this product is less about "expand your iPhone storage"...

... and more about "clear a bunch of photos and videos off your iPhone during vacation"

That's what I would use it for.

I'd also use it to quickly load a bunch of movie files from my computer onto the flash drive to watch on my iPhone on an airplane. And for those 2 hours you're watching the movie... who cares that you have to use a separate app? Once the movie is playing fullscreen... you forget you're in a separate app.

At least this device give you options... options that Apple doesn't really offer natively.

I'd love for Apple to support USB On-The-Go... but I doubt we'll see that in our lifetimes :)
