    FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.--Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of DataTraveler® microDuo 3C USB Flash drive. DataTraveler microDuo 3C has a dual interface that works with both standard USB Type-A (3.1, 3.0, 2.0) and USB Type-C™ ports. USB Type-C, allowing for slimmer and sleeker future devices, is an up and coming reversible connector standard that enables a single port to function as a point for data transfer, video output, charging and even power external devices.


    DataTraveler microDuo 3C is an ideal way to provide up to 64GB of extra storage for the very latest smartphones, tablets and Mac computers while also working with current generation devices. Shipping later this month, the simple plug-and-play drive offers fast USB 3.1 performance with read speeds up to 100MB/s and write speeds up to 15MB/s. The light weight and small-form factor DataTraveler microDuo 3C complements portable devices and is easily transportable.

    “DataTraveler microDuo 3C has a dual interface that accommodates both USB Type-A and USB Type-C ports to give users easy access to the latest USB interface,” said Jean Wong, Flash business manager, Kingston. “Our drive provides more storage, features fast data transfer speeds and helps make the new technology more accessible to consumers.”

    DataTraveler microDuo 3C is backed by a five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability. For more information visit

    Kind of surprised with the low write speeds. But, nice to see them take the combo approach.
