Kingston's Data Traveler Micro Duo features USB 3.0 and Type C ports

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, July 30, 2015

A flash drive that’s future proof.  At least for now.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    You’ll find it on the new Macbooks…and there’s much more to come.   USB Type C ports will have some big advantages….they are small…there’s no up or down side when you plug a cable in… and can be used for power as well as data connections.   Kingston is now out with a flash drive that includes both USB Type-C and USB 3 ports.   The Data Traveler Micro Duo.   Kingston’s David Leong…

“What’s going to happen is all of the major PC makers, the Dell, and Lenovos of the world, in addition to Microsoft, everybody has signed on board for this standard.   So eventually, we’re going to see the Type C port on more and more devices as time goes on for the rest of this year.”

With an adapter, Type C cables can work with existing USB ports, but Kingston is taking the worry out of that.  A 32 gigabyte Data Traveler Micro Duo sells for under 25 dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
