Type C

SuperTalent recently released a new series of flash drive units, the Pico. As their name suggests the Pico drives are primarily designed to be as small as possible. SuperTalent certainly succeeded as the Pico drives are the smallest we have seen up to date. They all come in a single package with no bundle at all, except from a small chain which is pre-attached to the drive itself. There are three types of Pico drives. The Type-A has a swivel lid and measures 38x12x4mm (LxWxH), the Type-B has a retractable connector and measures 32x19x4.5mm (LxWxH) and the Type-C has no protection over the USB connector but measures only 31x12x3.5mm (LxWxH).

The Pico drives are very small and exceptionally thin, so SuperTalent in order to make them aesthetically appealing chromed their bodies, therefore all three drives are like small mirrors. Very attractive but rather prone to fingerprint marks. Not one of the three Pico drives has a data access LED light, probably because of their very thin bodies. Furthermore, there is no software at all to be found preloaded in any of the drives.

 

TwinMOS B1 4GB

From TwinMOS we received a highly popular mini ‘fashion’ flash drive, the B1. There is only a lanyard included in the package, but this time the lanyard is a silver coated chain which looks more like a piece of jewelry than anything else, this in junction with the pink color would verify that TwinMOS is heavily aiming towards female users. It measures only 42.5×14.5×2.8mm (LxWxH) and weights less than 2gr, making it the thinnest and lightest drive in our round-up.

The TwinMOS B1 has its USB connector exposed as there is no cap. While the company actually claims that the no-cap design is deliberate so that you wont lose the cap, it is obvious that this is nothing more than PR speak. A cap would make the drive considerably thicker, hence ruining the ultra-thin design TwinMOS was aiming for. The USB connector of the B1 is therefore exposed to physical damage and although it is not overly susceptible to damage you should be careful if you plan to attach the flash drive to your key ring. The truth is that the TwinMOS B1 is so thin that it wont take much abuse anyway as it clearly isnt designed for this. Surprisingly enough as the B1 is extremely thin at the rear part of the drive below the pink painted plastic body there is a hidden red access LED light.
