If you are a fan of certain unique type of USB flash drives, you might be able to see a good point in this FLX pendrives. FLX, perhaps stands for “FLeXible” and point to the made of silicone case, which kinda help you protect the USB head “automatically”.
What I mean automation on this FLX USB drives is unique case design. At a glance, it might looks like a jagged cheap plastic like you’d find on the U shape Straw. Well, it is a design that allow the automation with the help of a silicone rubber material.
So, when you decide to plug the FLX flash drive into the USB2.0 port, the jagged silicone case will reveal the plug naturally with a small push. When you remove the USB flash drive, the case then “will elastically” slip back to the origin shape because of the flexible silicone design.
Very clever design, but still can’t change my opinion about it. It looks so…, cheap…! 😉
