Kingston Announces Dual-Interface DataTraveler Duo USB Flash Drive

Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announces the addition of the DataTraveler Duo to its family of double versatility, dual-interface USB flash drives. DataTraveler Duo provides ultimate flexibility for users with newer and legacy devices.

DataTraveler Duo features dual USB connectors that work with both standard USB Type-A and USB Type-C1 ports to easily share files between laptops, desktops and mobile devices. The dual-interface drive is also ideal as extra storage with 32 GB and 64 GB capacities. The USB 3.2 Gen 1 speeds allow users to easily access and transfer documents, photos, videos, music and more. Dual sliding caps protect the connectors when not in use.
DT Duo is the latest addition to the Duo family of plug-and-play drives that complement mobile needs:
  • DataTraveler microDuo 3C (DTDUO3C): Dual interface that works with both standard USB and USB Type-C with fast read speeds up to 100 MB/s. Available with up to 128 GB capacity providing plenty of extra storage for the latest smartphones, tablets, PCs and Mac computers.
  • DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 G2 (DTDUO3G2): Dual interface micro-USB and USB Type-A for Android smartphones and tablets that support USB OTG (On-The-Go). DTDUO3G2 can be plugged into micro-USB ports that are used for charging devices as expanded storage (up to 128 GB) for quick and easy file, photo and video transfers between mobile devices and PCs.
"The addition of the DT Duo adds much needed functionality to the growing number of USB Type-C devices on the market," said Carissa Blegen, flash product manager, Kingston. "The dual interface and unique double slider casing make the drive sturdy and stylish, with no cap to lose."

USB-A will never die.
Probably not, with what the USB-C port and wiring supposedly costs compared to Type A.

USB-C is already 6 years old and every laptop that lacks a USB-A port is a problem because almost nothing you'd want to plug into a laptop uses USB-C, apart from this rare type of flash drive, and of course the obligatory USB-A expansion hub.

Apple users had the fame of carrying dongles around because of this, IIRC.

At least as of early last year, it was still stupidly expensive to manufacture Type C cables compared to Type A. Not sure if they've been able to introduce more automation since then.
