Padlock 2 Specifications
Flash drives has hit the market hard in various sizes, but one thing that has been missing is a security flash drive. I have seen ones with thumb prints but Corsair has released the Padlock 2 which encrypts the drive and locks it with a pin code. How well does it perform?

Inside the plastic cover I found a extension cable, a necklace and the USB memory stick. The memory stick itself looks like the normal Voyager drives but this one got a few LED’s and several buttons on top of it.
The cap comes of to reveal the USB connector. This drive is almost as tough as the earlier Voyager drives, the one thing that might concern me are the buttons. Can you drive over it with a car and the buttons will still work?
Otherwise the USB flash drive is pretty much the same size as other USB drives on the market. The top silver thing is actually a TV card so don’t mix them up
