USB flash drives are a fast and dependable way to transfer files from computer to computer, but there are so many to choose from that it can be challenging to find the perfect one. Some are designed more for style while others optimise space, but they all provide the same basic function for a USB port.

Credit Card Flash Drive

Some flash drives are bulky in a pocket, but the USB card can fit right into a wallet. A little thicker than a credit card, the USB card is a rectangle shaped flash drive that flips open to real the USB port. Sizes go up to 4 gigabytes.

Kronos USB Watch

An actual working wristwatch, this device also features a USB drive in the band. When worn, it looks like an ordinary watch, but when the user removes the watch, the USB connection pops out of the band and easily plugs into any computer. The watch still remains lightweight with the flash drive.

Lighter Flash Drive

If you smoke, or just need a lighter in general, then you can use the two-in-one USB flash drive with a built-in lighter. The lighter is designed like a Zippo and the top flips open. A small switch on the side slides the USB connection from the bottom of the lighter. It holds up to 4 gigabytes of space and the lighter is refillable.

Memory Meter Flash Drive

Instead of worrying about how much space is left on a flash drive, the Lexar Memory Meter flash drive provides a direct measure right on the drive itself. Sizes are available in 526 megabytes, 1 gigabyte and 2 gigabytes.

Food Styled Flash Drives

There are many flash drives available in food designs. These include bacon slices, watermelon, cereal, pizza, hamburgers and strawberries. A lot of the drives are also scented with the particular foods and provide all different types of date size and storage.


Fans of the popular building toy can expand their fandom with the LEGO USB flash drive. Made with multiple colours including red, yellow and blue, the large LEGO brick stores all of the content while the USB connection pokes out the end.
