Does anyone know a USB disk that's considerably fast and capacitive but it doesn't get very hot?

Currently I own a SanDisk Ultraflair 3.0 and even without moving anything it gets hot. For example, when I was moving an approximately 10 GB file, I couldn't even touch it for a minute, so I obviously can't run any OS. My OTG 2.0 USB is too slow.

Appreciate any help.

  • IMHO you could improve your question a little, at least write ”USB disk“ rather than just ”USB“ in the title. The term ”USB“ itself refers to protocols and specifications, not to a device. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB

How about get a USB 3 to SATA adapter, and attach a 2.5" SSD to it.
