Voyager Air is an extremely useful device for users who like streaming data on the go. With this device, users can store and enjoy their favourite movies, songs and pictures whether at home or even when on the move. It contains a self streaming media server with a wireless hub built in so that it helps the user connect with various playback devices without being connected to the internet.

The high-capacity rechargeable lithium-ion battery allows the users to enjoy up to seven hours of non-interrupted video streaming between recharges.
The device can also be turned into a Wi-Fi hotspot enabling wireless pass through so that users can use it as a wireless hub to share Internet access. Another feature is that it can also function as a shared home network attached storage (NAS) drive by simply plugging it into a network router via its built-in Gigabit Ethernet interface. It can then be accessed by multiple users on any networked Windows OS or Linux systems to stream media or use it for file storage, media consolidation, and backup.
The Voyager Air drive also allows partition creation for easier distribution and organization of media and user files. It has a superior feature of USB 3.0 drive enabling nearly twice the performance of similar mobile USB drives.
