Kingston Launches New DataTraveler 80 and DataTraveler 70 Type-C USB Drives
Kingston has launched two new Type-C USB drives today, the high performance DataTraveler 80 and the more budget friendly DataTraveler 70. Since more and more devices now only support the USB Type-C port, Kingston recognizes the industry shift and has developed cost-effective solutions to enable consumers to quickly transfer files and store more of their data including files, photos and video.
The DataTraveler 80 is a high performance Type-C USB drive that’s geared towards a more professional and business use. It supports next-generation Type-C laptops, desktops, smartphones and tablets. It features up to 200MB/s read speed and 60MB/s write speed for quick and convenient file transfers. The compact and capped design has a durable casing and key ring loop making it ideal for on-the-go storage. The DataTraveler 80 goes up to 256GB capacity and has a 5-year warranty period.
The DataTraveler 70 on the other hand is the more budget friendly of the two. It is also compatible with devices that use Type-C such as laptops, desktops, smartphones and tablets. It also features USB 3.2 Gen 1 performance (up to 10x faster than USB 2.0) and up to 128GB capacity. The DataTraveler 70 also has 5-years warranty.

Pokdepinion: This is pretty useful IMHO. I can definitely see people using this to watch saved movies or TV shows while on a train or in the car.
