Kingston has just announced the DataTraveler microDuo 3C USB flash drive. This USB stick has a dual interface that works with both USB Type-C and Type-A ports (USB 3.1, 3.0 and 2.0). As most of you will know, USB 3.1 is a reversible USB port that allows for faster data transfer, and it's increasing in popularity. It's not only used for data transfer too, as there are even monitors announced that will work with USB 3.1 as video output. It can also charge and even power(mobile) devices.

The DataTraveler microDuo 3C comes in capacities of up to 64GB, and will be compatible with smartphones, tablets and (Mac) computers. It will hit the shelves this month, and will offer fast, plug-and-play USB 3.1 performance. It will have read speeds of up to 100MB/s, while write speeds are a bit lower at 15MB/s. Since it's a flash drive, it will be compact and easy to transport.
