Kingmax touts 'thinnest' USB Flash drive

Not quite

Kingmax has release what it claims is the world's "lightest and thinnest" USB Flash drive, a 5g device that's just 2mm thick.

The Super Stick drive's other vital statistics are 3.9 x 1.2cm, and it comes in capacities ranging from 256MB to 2GB. Kingmax claims the USB 2.0 device has read and write speeds of 20MBps.

Kingmax offers a lifetime warranty on the product, though we note it only guarantees data retention for ten years.

It's also not the smallest of its kind. Earlier this month, US storage specialist Pretec announced a memory card that measures just 2.7cm x 1.2cm x 1.9mm and weighs a mere 1g. It's only got 128MB of storage capacity, but it is physically thinner and lighter than the Kingmax product. It's also smaller than SanDisk's SD card that features a fold-out USB connector.

Still, the Super Stick would be harder to lose than the rival products, and surely wins out on capacity.
