A lot of the reviews on Amazon say this, yes. Mine hasn't, yet. Maybe I don't use it intensely enough.

Thanks op. Got it. Will be handy for adding a secure place for my work laptop.

Any sort of computer device get's hot, an iron's plug get's hot. You only feel it more because of the form factor.

Yep - almost too hot to touch sometimes.

Drawbacks
- It gets really hot... so not really good if you are planning to leave them plugged.
- It's very small, so it's easy to misplace it. (or to leave in your jeans and put it in the washing machine)

Pros
- It's very fast
- It's very small

pick your poison!

You can't tell from the listings, but it has a small hole in the top for attaching to a keyring loop.

Edit: Just tried on mine, it just barely fits on an ordinary sized loop. It's not very practical unless you had a separate narrow ring for it. But it would definitely be harder to lose.

Great for Chromebook users.

I have a few of these in various different sizes (16-64) and they all get very hot after extended write times. Since I fill them in one go then use them as read drivesthey don't often get written to after the initial one so I'm not too worried.

I did that... but silly me, I put a small "keyring" made only of fabric (similar in a way to a pocket camera hand straps)

I have a 64gb one of these and it gets bloody hot when you are writing large files to it.
If your just reading from it then it's fairly cool running, I use it in my cars usb port filled with music and it's ideal because it only sticks out a small amount.

these are a great size for OTG to phone/tablet

Gets, not get's.

I don't think that this is hardware encryption, just has software supplied with device to encrypt files. Does get quite warm to the touch but very good for laptops.

Stay clear of these they do not last very long run soo hot.

For this price it used to be 32gb

That is correct, these devices do not have Hardware Encryption.

Don't chuck your packaging away as the free Tidal and RescuePro software codes are on the inside of the packaging.
