kingmax_ui-06.jpgContinuing its pursuit of data storage innovation, KINGMAX is excited to announce the December 17th launch its remarkably compact, ultra fast COB USB 3.0 Flash drive. The UI-06 features high read and write rates and is built to last thanks to the waterproofing and dustproofing capabilities of PIP technology. The hardware is protected by smudge-resistant sandblasted metallic casing and is available in blue or gray.

Market trends and user demands call for portable storage with faster transfer rates, ever more secure data storage, higher capacities and heady design. As a leading manufacturer of COB technology, KINGMAX has combined faster components and dynamic compatibilities to create the powerful, pocket-sized UI-06. Highly efficient COB packaging techniques use only 8.8% of the space of a traditional SMT-type USB and with a peak read speed of 85MB/s and a maximum write speed of 22MB/s.
