I'm looking for a USB thumb drive to keep on my keychain, but with removable (therefore replaceable and upgradable) microSD storage rather than flash memory that is built into the device. There are of course hundreds of options for something like this, but I'm looking for a specific set of features.
Basically, I'm looking for something like the Kingston Datatraveler or the similar Samsung thumb drive (photos below), but with removable microSD storage.
- Metal unibody construction
- USB type-A connector built into the body (not a slide-out connector or one with a detachable cap)
- Large hole at one end for a keyring, also built into the body of the device and not a tether cord or plastic piece. Ideally the hole would be like the Kingston model below, so the whole device is flat and lays flat with keys on the keyring)
Samsung thumb drive:
I imagine the micro SD card would be installed similarly to how this device works: the card is inserted into the USB connector itself. I actually have one of these exact readers and it works well but is way too flimsy for daily duty on my keychain:
