sandisk_usb-c_flashUSB Type-C is set to become the new standard for USB devices in the future. So far companies like Apple, Google, and handset makers like OnePlus have been more than willing to adopt the technology in their products, and if you are an early adopter, you might be interested to learn that SanDisk might have something for you.

The company has recently announced a new mobile flash drive that has been designed for USB-C devices specifically. As you can see in the photo above, this flash drive is pretty standard in terms of its design and function, but it does come with a USB-C connector meaning that if you have a laptop like the 12-inch Retina MacBook or the latest Google Pixel Chromebook, you will be able to connect the flash drive to it without needing an adapter.

Of course we expect that further down the line, USB-C devices and accessories will be more widely-available, but in the meantime this USB-C flash drive might tide early adopters over until more options are out there. In terms of storage, it will be available in 16, 32, 64, and 128GB storage sizes and are capable of read speeds of up to 150MB/s.

They aren’t particularly expensive either with the 16GB priced at $19.99, the 32GB at $29.99, the 64GB at $49.99, and the 128GB at $79.99. They are currently available for purchase via retailers such as Amazon.
