Kingston Digital, Inc., the flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announces the addition of the DataTraveler Max Type-A. It joins DataTraveler Max, the USB Type-C model, to complete the Kingston DT Max series of next-gen, high performance USB flash drives. Both drives leverage the latest USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard.

The DataTraveler Max (DT Max) series delivers record-breaking speeds up to 1,000 MB/s read and 900 MB/s write to make them some of the fastest USB drives on the market and the first of its kind. DT Max is designed with portability and convenience in mind. DT Max Type-A features a merlot and black design with Type-A connector, while the original DT Max features an all-black design with Type-C connector to differentiate the drives at first glance.

The addition of a keyring loop and LED status indicator makes the drive ideal for users who need storage on-the-go.
