Patriot Develops Type-C USB Flash Drive for New MacBook Users

Patriot, a leading manufacturer of mobile accessories, computer and USB memory, announces the development of a Type-C USB Flash Drive for the new MacBook, Google Chromebook Pixel and other Type-C equipped notebooks and systems available on the market. With the recent release of the latest MacBook, which has been upgraded with the new Type-C port, consumers will now be able to use the Type-C USB Flash Drive to transfer data from any other form factor using a single robust and small solution.

Outfitted with a polished metal exterior, the dual-sided Type-C / Type A USB Flash Drive will feature both a small Type-C at one end and a standard USB 3.0 connector at the other end allowing seamless data transfer from traditional devices to the new Type C based device. Patriot solves the problem of compatibility, providing a solution that is compatible with all devices.
"As many MacBook users rely heavily on external storage options, we wanted to be at the forefront with a product that will cater to these consumers," said Meng J. Choo, Patriot's Product Manager. "As a leading manufacturer of USB and flash memory, we want to offer solutions for our customers that are easy-to-use and provide seamless experiences across all their devices."

The new Type-C USB Flash Drive will be available to consumers starting in June and will be offered in both 32GB and 64GB capacities.

I suspect we will see a lot of dual-interface USB products coming to market. The next two years will be that annoying time of transition between Type-A and Type-C.

but hopefully that will reduce the cable clutter from users desk and backpack. Right now I have 6 different USB cables on my desk alone used to connect different types of devices.

Well I guess this transition process means that now you can have seven different USB cables on your desk,.... :)

Seriously though, if they make type A to type C transition adaptors plentiful and cheap I have no real issues with it. If they are like hen's teeth though and expensive then we have a problem,....
