SanDisk Has the First Flash Drive With a Reversible USB Type-C Connector

Illustration for article titled SanDisk Has the First Flash Drive With a Reversible USB Type-C Connector

Remember those rumors about a 12-inch MacBook that ditched a MagSafe connector and traditional USB ports for a single USB Type-C port? If true, SanDisk's new Dual USB Drive will be the first flash drive that's able to connect to that redesigned hardware without an ugly adapter.

But given it will be a few years before USB Type-C is common on all computers and mobile devices, SanDisk's new 32GB Dual USB Drive still comes with a standard-sized USB port on one end. When using the other, though, you'll never again have to make a 50/50 guess as to which is the right side up because like with Apple's Lightning connector, USB Type-C is reversible—hooray! [SanDisk]

The chance is 50/50, and yet somehow it always takes me *2* flips to get it plugged in.
