Transcend’s Lightning offerings, crafted for use with iOS devices, include flash drives for immediate storage expansion, a smart card ready for instant file transfer between Apple devices and memory cards, and exclusive Apps help these devices go far beyond the expected.

The JetDrive Go 500 flash drive is one of the smallest MFi-certified flash drives on the market. It boasts a sleek, metallic zinc casing, available in both silver and gold colours, that mirrors the stunning design of your Apple device, while remaining inconspicuous and unassuming. Specifically designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod, the JetDrive Go 500 combines a Lightning connector and a regular USB 3.1 (Gen 1) connector into a flash drive, providing an ultra-convenient way to back up and transfer files among iOS devices, Mac computers, PCs and laptops. The flash drive enables people on-the-go to quickly access, transfer and store up to 128GB of extra storage on your Apple device.

The JetDrive Go 300 flash drive comes in classic black, silver and rose gold to match your iOS device. With USB3.1 Gen 1 and Lightning dual connectors, transferring data among mobile devices and PC is as easy as pie. Other than the Airdrop function, the JetDrive Go 300 is an alternative way to share files with friends when there is no Wi-Fi connection or among different platform devices. Files including documents can be copied or moved to the JetDrive Go 300 without having to connect to the Internet.

For both JetDrive Go series, Transcend’s powerful JetDrive Go App offers an intuitive interface that provides simple data transfer, easy file management, and quick backup of data. Other convenient functions such as Shoot and Save enables users to shoot and save photos, videos, and audio recordings directly to the flash drive, while the password protection function (4-digit combination or Touch ID) allows for secure data storage.

The RDA2 Lightning card reader expands the possibilities for your iPhone or iPad by allowing you to transfer brilliant photos and videos from your digital camera, do some light editing, and uploading them to social networking sites straightaway.

Fully compatible with all iOS devices, the Transcend RDA2 is an MFi-certified card reader that meets Apple’s stringent safety, performance, and manufacturing standards.

With Transcend’s convenient Smart Reader app, the RDA2 is more than a standard card reader. Useful features include data backups, card formatting, file encryption, file compression and decompression, direct recording and saving (photo, video, and audio) to memory cards, password protection (4-digit combination or Touch ID) and easy access to cloud storage.
