Lexar has announced a range of ‘ruggedised’ USB drives. The Lexar JumpDrive Tough range combines a rugged yet stylish look with secure, high-speed performance. The drives can withstand temperatures from -25 to 150 degrees Celsius, immersion in water to around 30 metres, and heavy impacts.
The drives also comes equipped with EncryptStick Lite software, an advanced security solution with 256-bit AES encryption that helps to securely protect files against corruption, loss and deletion. This tough USB 3.1 flash drive allows users to securely transfer photos, videos, and files with speeds up to 150MB/s read and 60MB/s write. Users can transfer a 3GB HD video clip in less than 1 minute, compared to the 4 minutes it takes using a standard USB 2.0 drive. For added versatility, the drive is also backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and 2.0 devices.
‘Tough conditions have met their match with the Lexar JumpDrive Tough,’ said Micron Consumer Products Group marketing manager, APAC, Mathew Luu. ‘From accident-prone kids to adventure enthusiasts, users can rest assured that their content stays safe and protected even in the most intense conditions. So whether you work or play in harsh conditions, push your devices to the limit, or just want to protect against the bumps and bruises of everyday life, it’s got you covered.’
The Lexar JumpDrive Tough USB 3.1 flash drive is compatible with PC and Mac systems, and comes with a 3-year limited warranty.
Furthermore, all Lexar product designs undergo extensive testing in the Lexar Quality Labs to ensure performance, quality, compatibility, and reliability with more than 1,200 digital devices.
The new Lexar JumpDrive Tough is available now at RRPs of AUD$39.95, NZD$44.95 (32GB), AUD$59.95, NZD$64.95 (64GB), and AUD$94.95, NZD $104.95 (128GB).
