mini mSATA USB 3.0 Flash drive

This mini flash enclosure turns any mSATA SSD into a small USB 3.0 Flash drive. Construct in rugged anodized aluminum housing, this mini flash drive is about the size of a typical cigarette lighter and weight less than 2 oz. The drive can be directly powered from the USB port of a computer or a Smart phone. It is an economic solution to build your own flash drive with a capacity of your choice. You can achieve performance beyond 350 MB/sec using a high-performance mSATA card, many times faster than the USB flash drive. It is also an ideal tool to add to Addonics NAS adapters in building a low power, low-cost NAS storage.
