If you’re looking for a flash drive that can connect directly with the USB Type-C port of the MacBook or a new phone via OTG, the Apacer AH180 fits the bill.
It can be connected in two ways – one end is a USB 3.1 Type-C reversible plug and the other is the usual USB 3.1 Type-A found in most laptops. As a bonus, the flash drive is inspired by the “American superhero comics.”
The company’s press release and official website didn’t mention any name but it’s clear the superhero where they got the design inspiration is Ironman. What’s with all the red and gold treatment?
For those asking what USB 3.1 brings to the table, it’s generally all about faster file transfer speed. The USB 3.1 Type-C also brings reversibility or the ability to be plugged in any direction unlike microUSB 2.0 plugs that need to be plugged upright.
The Apacer Mobility AH180 dual flash drive comes in three capacities – 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Its official price hasn’t been revealed but we’re expecting it to be affordable or at least, reasonable.
