The LaCie RuggedKey Is Great For The Klutz In All Of Us

Admittedly, I’m a total klutz. I’ve dropped flash drives, phones, and other small gadgets more times than I can count on both hands. When working in IT this can be quite the problem.  Someone always expects you to repair their OS X install when your DiskWarrior flash drive was dropped and no longer functional.

Well, for the Klutz in all of us, LaCie has made the RuggedKey: a flash drive that is meant to withstand anything you throw at it, or drop on it.


This flash drive can survive drops of up to 100-meters due to its beautiful rubber exterior. The drive is also heat, cold, dust, and water resistant, so it can survive the harshest conditions. On the technical side of things, the RuggedKey is offered in 16GB and 32GB iterations, and offers USB 3.0 transfer speeds with USB 2.0 backwards-compatibility.

Purchase your 16GB RuggedKey here for $38, or the 32GB model for $65.
