The SecureUSB BT comes packaged in a plastic clamshell that gives you a clear view of the drive. The packaging also advertises many of the drive's key features including its 16GB capacity, automatic backup and antivirus, FIPS compliance, BlueTooth activation and 3 year warranty. Inside, you'll find the SecureUSB BT, a protective sleeve and a quick start guide.


Physical Features:

The SecureUSB BT measures 55 x 20 x 10 mm and tips the scales at 12g without the sleeve. This is a bit on the large side for a USB flash drive. However, its hardware encryption engine, physical protection mechanisms and BlueTooth module account for most of the extra bulk and weight.


While the ends of the SecureUSB BT are plastic, the body is constructed out of aluminum and is covered by a great looking blue finish. Above the opening at the bottom, there is also a small LED that shows the status of the drive. This indicator lights up red or blue and will blink to indicate whether the drive is locked, unlocked or transferring data.

The SecureUSB BT comes with a rugged, extruded aluminum sleeve that protects the body of the drive from physical damage as well as dust and water to depths up to 1 meter.

The SecureUSB BT's internal components are protected by an epoxy compound so I wasn't able to crack it open. However, using Flash Drive Information Extractor, I could see that the drive uses Phison's PS2313 controller. Unfortunately, the app was not able to identify the memory chips being used.
