So, Kingston has made Kingston data traveler R3.0 G2. It is shock resistant and dust resistant pen drive. The Kingston data traveler R3.0 G2 32GB is priced at Rs. 2,500

Design of the device is attractive but it is large in size and little bit heavy. But the rubber layer on the body feels good and make it shock resistant. Cap is also made of rubber. It is rugged USB flash drives, so it was obvious that it will be of big size. It measures 9.2mm x 56.0mm x 22.0mm. It can survive up to 1 hour at a depth of 1 meter.
