Transcend has added a new rugged USB flash drive to its range of memory products. The Transcend JetFlash V70 is claimed to have anti-shock features, survive dust and splashes. For this, its exterior casing is made of rubber, and has a tethered cap holder that will help prevent losing the cap.
Unlike USB flash drives that are usually made of plastic or metal materials, the JetFlash V70 is said to be made of eco-friendly silicone rubber that provides a pleasant tactile feel and offers excellent protection for stored data while working, exercising, or travelling outdoors. Transcend also says that it meets U.S. military drop-test standards (MIL-STD-810F 516.5--Transit Drop), thus making it one of the most robust USB Flash Drives.
Said to be designed with sporty outdoor adventurers in mind, the V70 has a streamlined shape and is available in vivid bright colours, and storage capacities of 16GB (Red), 8GB (Orange) and 4GB (Purple). Transcend offers a lifetime warranty on the JetFlash V70.
