Kingmax PI-01 Compact 7mm USB 2.0 Flash Drive, Amazingly Small Flash Drive

Not often do we get the chance to see a very simple innovation that brings significant advantages for the end-user. Kingmax’s new PI-01 compact flash drive is just 7 millimeters long and, despite the small size, it can handle up to 32 GB of data.

Being just 0.27 inches long, the Kingmax PI-01 compact flash drive is safe from accidental hits by the user’s own hands and objects being manipulated around the laptop or the port where the USB stick is connected in. It often happens that when working with a normal sized USB flash drive, the user strikes it by accident resulting in a broken stick or, worse, a broken USB port. We would like all USB sticks with less than 128 GB of capacity to be this small, as we’d better be safe than sorry, and we don’t really need any fancy design like a finger shaped USB drive.

The company emphasizes on the small size and the usefulness of it in places where a protruding flash drive wouldn’t be welcomed, like in a car or on a slim tablet. Unfortunately, the Kingmax PI-01 compact flash drive comes with a standard USB 2.0 interface and we really don’t understand why manufacturers insist on building such slow devices when USB 3.0 is omnipresent nowadays.
