I’ve got one of these. So small. You could easily download stuff onto it and swallow it for extra security

Change the USB 3.0 hub power settings in Device Manager. I don't know how many times I have to say this.

I've just copied 7GB of files across the USB3.0 port onto this flash drive and its not unusually hot all. The black plastic part is barely warm. Pulling it out and squeezing the metal heat shield and its warmer but nowhere near unbelievably hot to touch. Perfectly within tolerance.

The same flash drive is hotter than the surface of the sun when plugged into my Chromebook, but then it doesn't have this:

I'll get in first with the usual (and accurate) joke..This will get hot!

Ordered a 128GB thanks. Perfect for films
I really like this USB flash.
Is this site trustworthy
I paid £22 for my 128GB one last year.

It's a terrible price. And if you change your USB hub settings to power down the USB port when not in use, the USB stick doesn't get hot.

Great, but useless. How will that sidestep the issue of it being too hot to handle when you've just dumped a few gig on it?

You misunderstand. I've had one of these for a while and have used them in different computers. The hot temperature issue is caused by the USB port not powering down properly. Copying a few gigs does practically nothing to the temperatures. That's 20 seconds of copying if that.
Just need one 128G
In my experience these very small storage devices overheat with large data transfers, then become unreliable.
I've got the 64gb version. Really useful little USB and very sturdy. I keep it in the coin section of my wallet so I'm never without a USB.

Works well in TV's for movies etc.
Got 64gb to expand the storage on my Philips android TV for apps and emulators/roms.

They're great aren't they? I packed over 100 720p cult/classics on mine, I love it. Once I bought a brick sized 240mb HD for my Amiga for over £200, now you can get over 400x the capacity in something the size of a fingernail for a fraction of the price.

i have it and is all fine, but very annoying thins is that you have to have long nails to remove from usb port, so small and tiny
I have this, when in use it does get warm/hot and radiates heat, for copying files and using as a transfer medium but would not use it in the car to pay MP3 or in my TV as prolonged use make it quite hot, the drive has no cut outs to dissipate heat, and i found that the heat issue would cause windows to not recognize it, and it came up with errors.

Fine for transfering files, not suitable for prononged media consumpsion due to the heat issue.

I have 64GB & it gets excessively hot just copying files on USB 2. No other USB memory device gets hot when copying or when left plugged in. It's a well known fault with these.

Totally agree, in theory its a nice size, I have the 128gb, honestly I would not trust leaving in the TV or in the Car, it really overheats. I originally bought to leave in a device instead of and external HDD, big mistake, I think its lying in the house somewhere. If anybody is in doubt google it.
Anyone actually used picstop yet? There are lots of deals from then recently.
I'm still waiting for a micro sd card I ordered on 13th.
They provided a tracking reference that was irrelevant, and when questioned about it, just said that the order wasn't what they considered to be late as yet.
Purchased! Great price. Thanks
These really are HOT!! Especially to the touch.
I used a 128GB one to watch films from (which keeps it in a state of constant use) and it would get scoldingly hot to the touch. Because of this I was worried it might burn out early using it this way, so now I only use it as an extra removable storage on my laptop. Looks great and sits really flush in the USB socket.
Great price, but be wary of it overheating.
128gb version for £34.99 at Currys if anyone’s interested.

Wouldn’t buy memory from dodgy online sites Amazon included. Never heard of this one. Received far to many fakes.

I have the 32gb & 128gb version both get warm in use maybe even mildly hot in heavy use. Shouldn’t get hot enough to fail or burn though.

I want to buy this as I need something small enough to be plugged in at all times but my last one from amazon failed about 6months ago. it ejects itself after like 5 seconds.

are they any alternatives?

Bought 128gb one for car for £23 from amazon last year, as there were a lot of people complaining in the comments section I got it returned, got too hot playing music files to the point the car stereo was heating up around where it was plugged in,, what's point of having a portable memory stick if it's not portable and it's stuck in ur machine doing nothing? Stupidest comment ever! Good day sir!

Nano flash drive not portable? That's very funny.
Just a note to all buying these.. they get REALLY hot.. i have a 128gb version of this constantly plugged into my lenovo yogapad and it gets ridiculously hot.. its nothing more than a bit of an annoyance as it works fine and as of yet has never let me down... just make sure its something you dont mind living with before purchasing.

I must have had my Amiga before you. Cost me £350 for 50MB hard disk.
I had an Amstrad CPC464 and that cost me £200 for a floppy drive + interface.

Going from tape to 3" (not 3.5") floppy was luxury.

I also had an Sinclair QL with little tape drives.
I have the 64gb version. It is used as a storage device so to avoid the heat I plug it into the USB2 . Although I will use the power management tip from above.
