Well it is that time of year again! The holiday season means tons of buying gifts for family and friends. Sometimes it is hard to find the right gift for someone, so we have compiled a list of great tech-related stocking stuffers for you. Some of these items are very inexpensive and others will break your bank, but they are small items that will fit perfectly inside of holiday stocking, so let’s take a look at what we picked out this year.
Flash drives are the perfect stocking stuffer gift! Most people always have some use for them, and many of them are really not that expensive at all.
Corsair Flash Voyager Drives
I’m sure you know someone that ends up breaking everything. Well the Corsair Flash Voyager USB flash drive is the perfect drive for them. This thing is pretty much indestructible, when we tested it we froze it, boiled it, threw it off a wall and it still worked! Corsair has now expanded the Flash Voyager line to 3 products, the original Flash Voyager, The Flash Voyager GT which is designed for speed and the Flash Voyager Mini which is a smaller version of the original Flash Voyager. You can get these drives in capacities ranging from 4GB all the way up to 128GB.
OCZ Throttle eSATA Flash Drive
eSATA has really started to become popular on cases and other devices. It would be no surprise that we have started to see eSATA flash drives popping up. OCZ’s Throttle eSATA flash drive uses the eSATA connector instead of the USB connection for added speed. It does also have a miniUSB connection if you did want to connect it to a computer that does not have an eSATA connection. This drive is available in 8, 16 and 32GB versions and can be found online for $30 for the 8GB version.
Kingston MobileLite G2
If you have a digital camera, cell phone or MP3 player you probably have an SD or microSD card. The Kingston MobileLite G2 not only is a card reader, but has a retractable USB connector that allows you to connect it to any computer to easily read the files on your cards. Both sides retract to protect your cards when you are traveling as well. You can get the reader by itself or it can come bundles with SDHC cards. The reader itself can be found for under $10!
