USB flash drives are convenient ways to carry data around, and load on other computers. They are usually based on USB type A found on computers, laptops and even TVs, , but if you plan to connect it to your smartphone or tablet, which may only comes with micro USB or USB type C port, you’ll need an OTG adapter to connect the USB flash drive. It works, but if you don’t like to look for the adapter each time you can want to connect, Silicon Power C50 USB flash drive offers a solution as it includes all three types of connectors. Sorry no mini USB port 🙂

The company claims the drive works with Windows 10/8.1/8/7/Vista/XP, Mac OS 10.3.x or later, Linux 2.6.x or later, but it should just work with any OS that supports USB mass storage class. The company also offers a free Android app (SP File Explorer) to access the drive from Android devices. The micro USB port shares the same side as the USB type A port, and you just need to lift the latter to reveal the micro USB port.
The stick will have a 5 years warranty, but the company has yet to announce pricing. You’ll find more details on the product page.
