Stock up now for central heating failures this winter.

have some heat
Cheap but 4-10 working days delivery.
I'd sooner pay a couple of quid more and get it 1st class
These are pretty good. Been using them in lots of devices.

Funny how the OP should chose the word 'tough' in their description...
I have one of those. Hasn't been that bad in terms of getting too hot (the other well-known design flaw of these drives), but it certainly hasn't been tough as it broke ages ago as the plastic and the thin metal used is really weak. And this despite there being very little of the body actually exposed.
I still use it but am now very cautious with handling it. Have considered getting some epoxy glue and seeing if I can hold it together with that.
Great price.

And no, they do not overheat - just change the Windows setting for the particular USB hub adaptor / socket its plugged into to "Allow to power down when not in use".

Same happen to me. I've got 1x 32gb + 1x 64gb and both broke off from metal almost immediately. These are only suitable for permanent use in one port. If you have to use on different ports, buy another design.

BTW I use mine now with an USB angle-extender and taped them to it. Kind of works.
Take some ice, these things get far to hot
When taken out of a port for the third or fourth time, the cap WILL break. Trust me...

I've taken mine out of the USB socket hundreds of times and it's just as solid as the day I bought it.
Don't forget cashback

They do overheat. Period. That is why you attempt to persist in presenting an attempted workaround to reduce the overheating that should not be present, and appear to expect peeps to mess with every machine this device is used on. Mine still reach ridiculous temperatures on my multi boot machines when running Android & other OS - I just choose to use them with a short extension cable to prevent the heat from transferring to the client or singeing my fingers, or should I be rooting & messing with those OSs too? It's simply a great performer with a serious flaw that some peeps choose to tolerate, including myself, but I should not have to.

"Android & other OS"

That's where your problem lies - there's no facility to power down the USB hub when not in use with those OSes. I guess that's the downside of using such a locked down OS.

Works fine with Windows 10.

Incorrect interpretation: this is the design flaw with the device, not the OS. The OS should not need to compensate for a device's failings.

It's not compensating - the OS is simply giving different power options. Powering down the USB hub is a power saving option for battery life. Why would you want to feeding power to a USB hub when it's not being used? This shows up the limitation of Android and the other OS you're using.

Why does no other similar flash drive require the user to mess with settings? Answer: cos the Sandisk item is a flawed device. Doesn't get any simpler.

I am glad you mentioned your experience as I never had that one, just ordered one this afternoon. After reading few reviews people complained a lot because of plastic design of new model braking and falling apart....

Who knows? Works for for me and thousands of other people. Then again I don't use an OS that wasn't designed for USB3.0.

Well you must be skilled at constructing gossamer garments then...

(check Google for reviews - I'm not the only one who has experienced this problem)
It's worth paying the extra few quid and getting the new version as they run alot cooler amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1 the old style ones were housed in metal and get miles too hot, I'm pretty shocked they managed to release them in the state they were as I reckon they are dangerous.
I've used dozens of these, and they get warm, but never too hot to touch.
They're quite uniquely small for leaving plugged in permanently and are great for that.

As skilled as is necessary to pull a flash drive out of the socket...even a 2 yr old can do that.
They get as hot as the surface of the sun.

Get good speed out of these. It's unfortunate they will melt your pc case, short your usb port and potentially burn your house down. I would definitely buy something else.

Completely agree. Only needs to be plugged in for a matter of minutes and gets so hot it will burn your hand. I wouldn't leave one of these plugged in for any amount of time. Leaving one plugged in is suicide.

Oh no.. this guy again with his imaginary computing expertise.
I returned the 64GB version of this as it would slow down/completely stop when copying over some mp3 files. Due to the heat from it I'd imagine.
Defo gets too hot. I returned mine and got a Lexar one which stayed relatively cool in comparition.
There's a clown on this thread. Suspect probably takes psychopathic levels of glee in typing the word "remoaner". Going to another thread for a cooler, more structurally sound memory card experience.

Lot of reviews saying that one gets very hot too?
Got the 32GB plugged in to my tv, it got really hot. After reading the other comments on here, I probably won't be buying another one.

Hear hear..
Would you use in the car...nice to use in the winter....hot hot.

They get warm but don't hit the levels of the old type, I transferred over 200gb in the new type in one go and found it ok to touch it straight away. The old type become hotter than the end of a seat belt on a hot day.
