mini M2 NVMe SSD USB 3.1 drive

This mini M2 NVMe enclosure turns any M2 NVMe SSD into a small USB 3.1 Flash drive. Construct in rugged anodized aluminum housing, this mini flash drive is about the size of a small chocolate bar and weight less than 2 oz.  Comes with a USB C connector, 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 up to 900 MB/sec when connecting to USB 3.1 port. It is also a handy tool for accessing the data on an existing M2 NVMe SSD or for media duplication using the Addonics family of USB duplicator.
