When it comes to prolonging the life of your laptop, there's no easier upgrade than adding an ultra-compact USB flash drive to expand its storage capacity—particularly if it's got a small SSD on board. And a company called PKparis is now laying claim to the title of 'world's smallest USB 3.0 flash drive' with its new K’1 that more than looks the part.


Available in 32GB and 64GB capacities for $48 and $89 respectively, the aluminum drives offer read and write speeds up to 140 MB/s, and they even include a tiny LED activity light. You'll of course want to make sure your laptop is already equipped with USB 3.0 to take full advantage of the K'1's capabilities, and once it's plugged in you'll never have to worry about losing it—or even noticing it for that matter.

Man oh man, storage has come a long way. I'm still using a jump drive I bought a couple of years ago, in amazement that I could cram 4 GB onto something that small...this? This is the future - think how much slimmer/smaller laptops can be when you can cram that much info onto something this small. It's only a matter of time, really (and the pricing really isn't outrageous, which is what I'd expected when I clicked).

Yay technology.
