The fact that our thumb drives are meant to be portable means that we usually take them wherever we go. This could be a trip to a friend’s house, classes at university, passing it around at work, etc. Well with all the exchanging of hands and different environments, there’s no doubt that your thumb drive will pick up a ton of bacteria, so much so that Lexar has deemed it important enough for their JumpDrive S50 USB flash drives to come with Microban antimicrobial product protection.
According to the company, this particular protection will help to inhibit the growth of bacteria and mold that not only causes stains and odors (who smells their thumb drives anyway?), but also product deterioration. We can’t be sure how true this is, but for those who are really particular about cleanliness, we guess the Lexas JumpDrive S50 USB flash drive could be the right product for you. It will come in a variety of sizes from 4GB all the way up to 64GB in a variety of colors, and you will be able to pick one up for yourself from Amazon’s website.
