This mini drive is the world’s “fastest and toughest” 2TB SSD

OWC announced the Envoy Pro Elektron USB-C Bus-Powered SSD. The new portable 2TB SSD drive is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and can save files at up to 1011MB/s.

According to OWC, the Envoy Pro Elektron is the “fastest, toughest mini-sized SSD in the universe.” The drive is capable of saving and editing personal and work files at up to 1011MB/s in real-world speed—that’s equivalent to transferring ninety-one high-res photos every single second, or a 5GB movie in under five seconds. That’s extremely impressive, especially considering its form factor is so small.


The OWC Envoy Pro Elektron USB-C Bus-Powered SSD is built out of aircraft-grade aluminum. Additionally, its design allows the drive to operate silently without a power adapter. The drive comes with a USB-C cable and Type-A adapter and is compatible with Macs or PCs of the last decade and models coming in the future. Also, it works with iPad Pro and Chromebook tablets.

“With technology, we always want to go smaller, faster, lighter and rugged and the OWC Envoy Pro Elektron does just that,” said Larry O’Connor, CEO and Founder of OWC. “This pocket-sized, tiny, crushproof, dustproof, and waterproof drive provides superfast, pro-grade speeds and up to 2.0TB capacity in the palm of your hand so you can edit and save wherever, whenever with virtually any Mac, PC or tablet.”
