10€ image tank alternative for image backup while traveling

Also afraid of image loss? I regularly change cards on a trip but still I would feel much better if I could back up my images on the go.

For some time i was looking into image tanks and cloud based approaches, but they are either very expensive or just not available everywhere.

But now I found the perfect solution :

  • my smartphone (Galaxy S2)

  • my old external 2.5" 250GB USB HDD

  • some cheap stuff for 10€ (USB hub with power supply, USB OTG = on the go cable, SDHC-2-USB-adapter)

More details are described in my blog post: http://www.andreasbank1980.blogspot.de/2012/08/on-go-image-backup-for-10-only.html
