Lexar JumpDrives get tough

28 Mar 17

Lexar have launched their range of JumpDrive Tough USB flash drives, providing a fast, safe and robust storage solution for the more adventurous user.  

The safe and secure storage of your data on the go is just as important as in the office or home. Valuable information can be lost to the elements, wasting time and money, and memories can be lost forever.

As a fast and secure offering in the Lexar JumpDrive USB flash drive performance lineup, the JumpDrive Tough combines a rugged yet stylish look with secure, high-speed performance.

This lightweight drive is impact/pressure (up to 750 PSI), weather (-13°F to 300°F), and water (up to almost 30m) resistant. The drive comes equipped with the EncryptStick Lite software security solution to help protect files against corruption, loss and deletion.

“Tough conditions have met their match with the Lexar JumpDrive Tough,” says Micron Consumer Products Group Marketing Manager APAC Mathew Luu. “From accident-prone kids to adventure enthusiasts, users can rest assured that their content stays safe and protected even in the most intense conditions. So whether you work or play in harsh conditions, push your devices to the limit, or just want to protect against the bumps and bruises of everyday life, it’s got you covered.”

Lexar states that the USB 3.1 compatible flash drive allows users to transfer photos, videos, and files with speeds up to 150MB/s read and 60MB/s write. That’s a 3GB HD video clip in less than 1 minute, compared to the 4 minutes it takes using a standard USB 2.0 drive. The Lexar JumpDrive Tough USB 3.1 flash drive is compatible, backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and 2.0 devices and comes with a three-year limited warranty.

The new Lexar JumpDrive Tough is available now at MSRPs of NZD$44.95 (32GB), NZD$64.95 (64GB), and NZD $104.95 (128GB).
