Patriot Trinity is a unique flash drive that caught our eye at the company's Computex 2019 booth. The drive comes with the ability to plug into USB type-A, micro type-B, and the latest type-C ports. Leveraging USB 3.1 gen 1 (5 Gbps) standard, the drive offers sequential transfer-rates of up to 200 MB/s, but is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0, and supports OTG standard. You can have it in capacities of 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB. It's also engineered for low power draw (well under 50 mA), so it isn't too heavy on your phone's battery. Patriot also showed off the Blaze and Fang, which come in 1-piece retractable and 2-piece lidded form-factors, respectively. The two feature the same innards, with capacities ranging between 128 GB to 1 TB, sequential transfer rates of up to 400 MB/s, and USB 3.1 gen 1 type-A connectors.
