UTILITY: SD Card On/Off Switch for HTC Voyager

Do you remember the SD card problems which seems to be the reason for the weak stand-by time of the HTC Voyager (aka i-Mate Smartphone2/Orange E200)? So far, the only workaround was to leave the SD card and dummy out of the device - to save battery power.

Now, "MrMagoo" uploaded a utility to MoDaCo which might offers a better workaround by disabling/enabling the SD card, while it is in the slot:

This is for turning the SD card on and off.

I am still in the middle of testing whether or not this makes any difference to the life of the battery, so I have posted this up for other people to help in that testing.

How to use it:

  • Insert SD card
  • Run this program (It installs to accessories folder on start menu) to turn the card off
  • Run again to turn card back on (or re-insert card)

Please test battery life using this and report back so we can evaluate it's usefulness...

I've just installed it now and therefore I can not tell you if it seriously works or not but it's worth to try anyway and maybe you can report your results here and for sure in the MoDaCo thread to let MrMagoo know how it is working for you.

Cheers ~ Arne
