Corsair Announces Ultra-Compact USB Drive

Sleek, Shock-Proof, & Water-Resistant with Unique Cap-Less Connector Plug 1/3 Size of Other USB Drives -- Weighs Only 5.4 Grams.

Corsair® Welcome to Corsair, a worldwide leader in enthusiast computer and flash memory products, announced today the new ultra-compact USB drive, “Flash Voyager Mini” 4GB rubberized USB flash drive. The newest member of the award-winning Corsair Flash Voyager family, the Flash Voyager Mini is enclosed in all-rubber housing to protect valuable data against severe temperature, moisture, or physical abuse. The Flash Voyager Mini is ultra-sleek, 1/3 the size of regular USB drives, with a weight of only 5.4 grams -- as light as a piece of gum.

Features Unique Cap-Less Connector Plug with COB Technology

To create the smallest drive possible, the Corsair Flash Voyager Mini utilizes a unique cap-less retractable connector plug, which easily opens with the flick of the thumb. Corsair achieved this ultra-compact design by using the latest Chip-on-Board (COB) technology, which allows the entire USB connector to be easily retracted into the drive. This not only makes the drive smaller, but it also prevents damage caused by life’s inevitable mishaps. In addition, the drive’s ergonomically shaped rubber housing makes it easy to connect and disconnect from any computer.

“With the Flash Voyager Mini, we wanted the smallest form factor possible while maintaining the features that made the Flash Voyager line so popular, such as water resistance and shock-proof housing,” said John Beekley, VP of Applications Engineering at Corsair.

“We think of the Flash Voyager Mini as a summer-proof product. It can be left on the dashboard of your car on a hot summer day, or you can spill a drink on it and the data will remain protected,” said Stephen Schwartz, Associate Product Marketing Manager at Corsair.

The 4GB Corsair Flash Voyager Mini is available immediately in the United States from Amazon.com as well as other e-tail and retail locations worldwide priced at $29.99. Corsair products are backed by a 10-year Limited Warranty. Complete customer support via telephone, email, forum and TS Xpress is also available.

Kingmax have some very small USB drives too. Corsair's Mini Voyager is 76x53x13mm. Kingmax's Super Stick manages 34x12.4x2.2mm, which is a whole lot smaller! Image came from Engadget.

But are any of them small enough to avoid capture by the corporate state? Are any of us small enough? Very nice new tech!
