ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today launched the compact and ultra-light UV310 USB Flash drive. Made using sturdy chip-on-board (COB), unibody (one-piece) construction, the UV310 employs zinc alloy and sandblasted textures to combine an alluring metallic look with a high degree of toughness. It weighs just 4.7g and is available in up to 64GB. Fashionable, sleek, and sophisticated, the UV310 re-affirms the ADATA commitment to producing the finest USB drives.
Tough construction resists dust, shocks, drops, and water
ADATA utilizes unibody COB construction with the UV310 to ensure a compact but durable product that minimizes weak points thanks to a seamless design. Material-wise, the UV310 consists of zinc alloy, sandblasted to create a textured surface that resists scratches and is immune to fingerprint smudges. The gold color scheme of the UV310 lends it a very elegant look, emphasized by its high resistance to everything from dust to shocks and water exposure. This durability means wherever consumers go, their data remains well protected – far beyond the norms of generic, plasticky USB drives.
Super light but packing capacity
Despite weighing a mere 4.7g, the UV310 offers 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB of storage. It connects to devices using USB 3.1 at up to 5Gbps, and for extra convenience has a prominent hook that makes mounting straps, chains, and key rings easy.
