Patriot Memory, known for their high-performance memory and NAND flash storage, announced yesterday the Autobahn USB 2.0 drive – a compact, ultraportable high performance drive measuring less than 18mm long.
The Autobahn USB 2.0 flash drive can be summed up in two words: incredibly small. Measuring just under 18mm, the drive is smaller than a quarter, and yet despite its small form factor, has an ample storage capacity of up to 32GB. Not only is this drive ultra small and ultra portable, but the physical design of it makes it almost invisible once slotted in. The intent, and most likely the namesake of the Autobahn USB 2.0 flash drive, is that it is compatible with any car stereos (or any stereo for that matter) with a USB port, allowing users to take their favourite music with them wherever they go. It comes in 8, 16, and 32GB models and is compatible with current operating systems like Windows 7, Windows 8, and Mac OSX or better. It’s affordable and is backed by a 2-year warranty.
